I'm gonna miss Rag Dance.
I'm so gonna miss everything that happened in these three months. Many people have asked me whether it was worth sacrificing my three months of holidays for some hall activities. They could not understand why i would choose to keep myself busy with all these activities rather than going home to accompany my family and spend time with them. "Isn't family important too?", is what i would normally receive.
You see, i'm the kind of person who cannot sit still at a spot for too long. What more three months. If i were to go back, i'm sure i would die boredom very soon. And i enjoy surrounding myself with lots of activities. It's what make me alive. I'm sure my parents would understand too. From a young age i've always been a rebellious kid who always wanted to do things differently from other people.
Like staying back in hall planning orientation activities when others would normally choose to go back to their hometown and enjoy the holidays.
Thanks to this particular trait of mine, i ended up studying in Singapore as i couldn't really settle for the "normal" choice. So i would wanna thank my parents for being always there to support whatever decisions i made, even though that means seeing me less. I know it's not easy for them too and which is why i would wanna dedicate this post for them. I'm not the kind of person who is able to mention all this through my mouth, my parents don't too either, so i guess blog post is the way to go.
Thanks for sticking with me even though i know some of the aunties and uncles might bad mouth me for being an ungrateful son who does not go back to visit. And i could proudly say that these three months have not gone without any benefits. Your son has for the first time managed to perform in a dance in front of thousands of audiences and a TV and he has also grown and matured much through all the activities.
