well, basically cos 2 weeks ago i started working. been doing sorting and filing of motor insurance renewals at AIG. let's see, at 1st i was working in the pantry cos that was where a certain series of files were. and then i was sent to the dungeon, the stupid storeroom in the carpark where i had to file this rediculously huge stack(think new box of A4) of renewals and it didn't help that the dungeon is extremely dusty and stuffy which made my nose a seem like it was in a marathon. yup, so that took me the better part of my 1st week at work, and when i was done, i found out i had like 5 more stacks to do, and i had to sort them 1st.
ok, so that was the 1st week of work. my 2nd? i spent the entire week sick at home, throat infection that was probably caused by working in that damned dungeon, although my mum suspected dengue when i had a fever for 4 days. oh man, it was probably the worst week of my life, i've never been that sick and the last time i even went to the docs was like more than a year ago?
ok, so 3rd week of work? there is no third week. i quit today, the thought of another week in the dungeon and getting sick again just turned me off. yeah, and i wanna enjoy my last few weeks before enlistment.
just spent the last 2 days trying no to think about it, doing my best to avoid it. well, of course in between the football, father's day dinner, fantastic 4 and reading there was some time where it did sneak up on me. but ah well, they're just thoughts and worries. guess i just gotta stay optimistic, thanks joy. =)
and thanks to those who tried to talk to me. haha, it did help, really. and those that kept me occupied.
anyway, i had another add on dream last night. felt like shit when i woke up lah, total mood spoiler, and it didn't help that my sister is renovating her toilet, re-tiling and what not. anyway, back to the dreams, it seems that they're starting to come true, with all the recent happenings and information i've stumbled across, it's been bringing back memories of almost 3 years ago and i can't help but think that it's happening all over again. once was bad enough, what if it happens again? i never thought this would happen, thinking that this would be it, and this happens. urgh.
i guess i really need someone to talk to right now, but yet, i don't feel like talking. so i may once again start appearing offline much more, even though my com is on almost 24/7 and i'm sitting in front of it most of the time, in an attempt to avoid that. but if anyone does feel that they want to talk to me, just click on me, and leave a message, i should be there.
and i think i will burying myself in the books more to avoid reality.
so i guess all i have to blog about that happened recently are the 2 camps i've went to this past week. 1st being the student ambassadors training camp back in RP, haven't seen anyone there in ages, camp was rather fun except for the lack of sleep i had on the 2nd night. hmmm, met all the juniors and afew other alumni, as well as all the newbies, some really interesting people that i would have liked to get to know a little better. only problem is that i don't know when i can get to see them all again. next camp perhaps? oh well, all depends on army.
oh, speaking of army, still have not received my airforce COMPASS test results yet, oh well, as josh said when i was talking to him about it "no news is good news", so fingers crossed, i hope i still can get it as i'd rather go there than NDU.
ok, i'm digressing, so 2nd camp i went to was sec 2 camp, nothing much for me to comment on that camp as all i did was sit and the friggin side doing absolutely nothing, waiting for potential problems with the sound that rarely and almost never happened, and it didn't help that i had to be there anytime someone was using the mics, which basically meant the whole friggin time. let's just say that that made me wish it was already august. anyway, that wasn't the only thing that irked me at camp. sitting there, all i could do was watch the groups and their activities, and basically, i saw quite afew things that irritated me. well, there was only one main redeeming point about camp, but i don't wish to point it out. i'll leave it to your imagination.
arhh. it's 2am and i'm friggin bored. i'm not exactly tired but that's not the main reason i don't want to sleep. stupid dream i had 2 nights ago. i just so hope it doesn't come true cos i always seem to have this sense of de javu in future about some stuff i dream about, although i know it's very possible it could happen, i just don't want it to. guess i should at least be grateful that i didn't dream about it again last night.
ok, i now have nothing else to talk about so i shall go off, watch some tv, and then head to bed soon. i'm dreading it, which is quite bad cos i actually love to sleep. -sigh-
going in on the 22nd of Aug. hah, but to naval diving unit,
ahh! when i've been worrying and keep thinking about going into NDU and waiting for that damn letter that informs me of my doom. waiting for that letter that has On Government Service written on it every single day.
so this morning, i get what i think is my enlistment letter, excitedly jumping out of bed to grab it from my father. only to gain confusion. the letter told my i have been identified as a potential candidate to be an RSAF Military Officer, a pilot to be exact. and now i have to go for a 5 hour test on friday. yeesh. but at least i have nothing else to do. haha
air force brings about so many new career thoughts. argh.
ok that's all for now.

i'v basically been rotting at home except for the occasional badminton or bowling session during the week, ED on thursday, CYF on friday, church on sat and SOCCER! on sunday. haha
speaking of soccer. i've been socring goals recently, much to the surprise of everyone. haha
oh well, another thing, i was sunburnt last week and i'm now peeling really bad. damn.
well, since army is only probably gonna be in august only. shall go sign up for my driving soon. haha, apy says i should be able to complete it fast since i got nothing else to do. 20 lessons. hmmm, 2 months can lah. lol.
well, i was told o had to dedicate a paragraph to the babybear. haha, ruth the retard. who came up with the term "retard's untie!" to which i added "your shoelaces!", so that's kind of the catch phrase now. haha
haha, ok, that's about it, i shall update again when i update. lol
so it started slightly more than 2 weeks ago when my father slipped an A4 sized letter under my door. well, it was green and was from mindef. i couldn't believe that i could have been called up that early. well, i opened it up and it was a further reporting order, i had to go to sembawang naval base for vocational testing. which turned out to be testing for the naval diving unit, the most shiong training of the armed forces.
yep, so after 2 weeks of waiting and anticipation, as well as hearing many horror stories about the ndu, i woke up at freaking 6am to get ready to report at sembawang mrt station at 7.30 for the bus to take us to the naval base, only thing was the damn bus only came at 8.30. so the day would go on to include another medical checkup, pressure chamber test, 3 hours of psychological testing, fitness testing and lastly an interview, and it all ended at 7pm in the evening.
the only problem? i had to go back the next day at 7 freaking 30 in the morning again because i couldn't do my pressure chamber test that day due to a stupid sip of wine i had at dinner on sunday. the medical officer gave me an earful. yeah, so i headed back again on thursday to do a stupid 9 minute long test where we were put into a pressure chamber and subjected to a simulation of a dive of 10m. after that, i could only leave at 1. urgh, i wasted half a day because of 1 stupid sip of wine. damn.
yup so anyway, during the interview the staff sergeant told me i would most probably get into the unit, and that he would see me in aug or sep. that means i've got 6 months to kill, what do i do? i need a job man. another thing i gotta do, gotta train up, trainings gonna be killer. heh. well, at least the food at the base is good. haha.
ooh, CNY's here, time for some financing of my new upcoming bike. whee.
ok, it's 3.30am, i'm off.
i'm also waiting to go for my napfa test, don't know why i'm waiting though, left wrist still hurting since my crash, urgh, sure fail my pull ups which i haven't been training for since that happened. we'll see though, maybe i can still do some and still get a bronze, can just kiss goodbye to silver. oh well, 4 extra weeks of physical training phase here i come.
oh well, good news is that i just have 8 more days of school and 2 more tests. so lookng forward to feb.
oh well, project presentation is finally done, questioning nearly killed us, but overall, guess it was ok, but 50% of my grade. yeesh.
so now it's just the 2 tests and 1 more presentation and then i'll be super relaxed. last day of stress will be on the 30th of jan.
yeah, update again another time.
