The clock is ticking

The clock is ticking, the calender is flipping, time is slipping away....
And I'm still stuck here, out of "time" looking at the world moving by.
So many things to do, yet I can't find the spirit to do them.

I am not cut out to live life alone

Grrr! Block leave is killing me.... Yet I wouldn't want to stay in camp without it.... Oh for the simplicity of going to school everyday. Lessons may at times be boring, homework may be hard, but everything was made much more bearable by the people around us. The vitality of the place filled us with energy, even at the end of the day where people are tired, many are still up for a game of bball. Even on the trip home, i still have someone to talk to.

Contrast that to today...
3 hours spent struggling with PyQt and still dunno how do simple things rawr!!!!!
2 hours on youtube watching John Green
2 hours sleeping
2 hours mapling
.5 hour playing poke

feelings during the above....

why no one on fb to talk to
oh no new camp --> what is signals like
                          --> enciks/officers going to be nice not...
and my hse is so dead....

NS, NS quickly finish, and let me go university and say hi to everyone again...

Out of Control...

Powerless to change my current situation, this feeling is driving me to distraction...

Helpless to control where my path will take over the next two years, no matter what is my performance in SCS, I still cannot decide where I want to go for the rest of my NS life. Possibly when I look back after this is done, I might decide that this lack of choice had been a good thing in that it let me get to know more people that I will otherwise not know. It might even not affect my life very much but from the stories that people are telling, that might perhaps not be true haha. Whatever the case, the frustration now is real... hais

This lack of control is driving me nuts... RAWR!

hais, sth else is out of control too...

Never have I been asked to make new friends within 2 months only to watch them go their separate ways again and having to begin the process again. As someone who has always been surrounded by friends and yet is slow to make friends, this constant change is wearing me down, leaving me sad and lonely. These weekends without going out with my friends are some of the loneliest days of my life.

Watching others move on with their lives makes me wonder where I am going with mine. Stuck in NS for the next 1 year and 8 months should give me plenty of time to think about the next step of my life but no matter where I turn, we all seem destined to be stuck in a world where we are helpless to change things.

The last vestiges of childhood seem to be rapidly fading away, the pressures of having to fend for ourselves are mounting and in the face of these attacks, I am slowly losing myself. Never had I felt so down before, never have I wanted someone to be by my side so badly...

PS: what has happened to the little kid who could smile all day? The one who is never down? The one who looked forward to each day. Who took him away and left this person who dreads the next day, this person who can't summon the motivation to do anything?

Why do we serve?

Was walking home today, when I realised why I serve.
I want a Singapore that is like how it is today, a country which is orderly without being sterile, a country where people can walk down streets feeling safe. Perhaps others serve to protect Singaporeans but I find that be they Singaporeans or not, I want a place where people can rest and feel at home. Looking at the buildings around the country, I realised how much progress Singapore had made and was glad that I am doing my part in protecting it.

And... we are back....
Nepal was nice. Going back a second time gave a different kind of feeling. The first thing I realised was that our old camping site has become used for constructing new classrooms. I still recognise some of the kids there from last year but I don't think they recognise me anymore.
The villagers there seem to live a very relaxed life, but we who only went there for 7 days and only visited their village for 1 day can never be sure about that. Singapore is much too clean and we were not even given an opportunity to try their local food items as they were afraid that we would fall sick. Everything that we did there was first planned through carefully here in Singapore, nothing there was done on impulse except maybe Mr Ng letting us climb trees but even that was carefully thought about there.
Interacting with the kids have resulted in us realising that we have a lot more opportunities compared to the kids there. We were also kind of sad that those who can do well might not have a chance to do so in future due to where they were born. I believe that some of them are as smart if not smarter than us, we can see this through how they picked up what we were trying to teach them very quickly, much quicker than the others in class.They might have been able to excel and become some important members of society had they been born in a developed nation. I hope that in future, we would be able to sponsor one student a year to come to Singapore to study. This is quite hard however given the state of their current education in Nepal now.
The teachers worked very hard behind the scenes to ensure that we were doing what we had to do and that we did not have any accidents. Ms Choo's outburst might have seemed kind of an over-reaction to many of us at that time but in Thamel there were posters about a lady who has gone missing while trekking. We might not have been facing that kind of risk but if anything had happened to us how? There was a main road behind the school albeit there being not much cars there.
I hope I do not forget all that we have done and learnt there. Its only being 4 days since we have last seen the kids and already they seemed to be a lifetime away. I'm missing all the people around me and all the people for me to talk to, I'm so bored now alone....
Missing all my Saathis....
