Monday morning; I woke up at 7:30AM. Today was an end of year excursion to a theme-park called Funfields. I remember going to Funfields in Grade 6, two years back, just after my graduation ceremony. That day was terrible.
As opposed to today’s warm air, calm winds and clear sky…we were forced to endure the cold breeze and a cloudy day. It wasn’t easy. It even rained a bit. So not only were our spirits dampened but we were physically dampened.
However, the best part of today was having the company of two amazing friends with me. Today was the last day of school. Next year onwards I will be set on another journey, to another school, another community and another me. Well, I hope not another me, at least not a complete new me.
Attending school today gradually turned out to be hard. After spending several years with the same people; getting used to them, it was hard. A large percentage of me remained obstinate; clinging onto the people she had grown fond of.
In Grade 6, I could never conjure up enough self-confidence. I was always a dependant third wheel. Over time, I’ve learnt that it’s okay to be different and be yourself. Even if that means you are alone on this path of self-discovery.
Sure people judge you, but it is only because they cannot see past their own ignorance…
Eventually, my hunger caught up with me. I missed breakfast this morning and the price for food was way too expensive. I did buy some chips, an ice cream and some fairy floss but my stomach was still unsatisfied. After two years, the food still retains it’s bland flavour.
We spent most of the day at a water playground. No queues, no annoying customers, just lots of water fun. Water is just magnetic to me. I want to be in it.
As we come to the end of this blog. I want to thank everyone at my school for a wonderful, successful and amazing year. I wish everyone all the best and to continue being themselves.
