retirement? i thought you already retired?
haha. i know some people do try their best to ignore prefects.
so i'm officially retired as a prefect, with the excuse for us to focus on our studies.
although its more like, enjoy your last few months in high school without teachers breathing down your neck.
we're still held responsible for our actions though, do anything outrageous, and you lose that precious cert that'll make you kick yourself for being a prefect in the first place.
i used to have great respect and admiration for the prefect board, and the seniors prior to us. obviously, standards have decreased, and i think prefects are now stereotypically what you think they are.
faceless robots, that study too much, and think they're so cool, when they're not.
hey whatever, i may be like that too, but we're losing our relatability to the average student.
P.R skills fail. absolute fail. and we have no more creative drive.
and they even changed the camp policy from torture mode, to full on baby mode.
in camp, you have to be pushed. not pampered around like babies.
i don't really hate the board that much lah, i just wish it was better. even I don't respect it anymore, what more everybody else?
but good luck to the new board though, tan jia rou and eugene lai :) i am proud everytime i see you do your duties :)
i did alot for this stupid board.
when i was a normal prefect in form 3, i used to be very stressed up over duties. and i actually followed the rules.
i hated being a pelatih the most.
the seniors scared me, camp scared me, i had a bad discipline record, the world's most boring interview, i was doing my duties badly, dunno why why why they picked me.
i hate jaga-ing classes, i hate jaga-ing gate 2, and angkat beg.
form 4 was cool, when they picked the board, i loved the day i got my post, just like the day i retired ;)
overall i did last year's talent search with xin li, the retirement booklet (stressed like crazy), camps, interview form 4 pelatihs, prefect t-shirt, twelvean's unmasked, and alot more i can't remember.
my last contribution was the twelveans unmasked. i sweated it out, and made alot of money for this school. and my reward? er. a hi-tea with my five heng dai's on sunday. lol.
i like that the prefect board was good medium for me to:
- make alot more friends ( you'd be surprised the people you yell at actually become friends with you ) and close friends
- learn PR skills, leadership skills, admin skills
- experience things other students don't
- befriend teachers (shut up)
- learn the school system
- learn responsibility
- contribute creatively
- i love the gray uniform
i will never understand why us retired prefects have to sit in the dataran. like, we're put on a pedestal when you encourage us to be like normal students already.
goodbye to my blazer, my locker :( , early recesses with no need to line up, prefect room, prefect room stuff, access to school computers for no reason, walking around school skipping classes, responsibilities.
hello to more time studying, more time in class, spending recess with my girls, coming later to school, by like, 20 minutes, spotchecks D: .
there's still prefect dinner ;)
ps: i got my first demerit since form 3 that day. nails.
