didnt feel like blogging today, until i saw an ex student get tagged in Team NUS (Netball) during a friendly i think……. you know, before i say anything, i must really stress that this post is by no means with an intention to hurt or blame or fault anyone at all. honestly.
this girl left sch in 2007. completed JC in 2009. is in NUS engine first yr first sem now. and, although i never ever taught her, i just feel so extremely extremely proud of her.
there are some girls who are in 3rd yr poly, and are playing netball.
i used to really enjoy watching them play. its a kind of satisfaction that i got seeing the girls train. i was never a sportsperson and to think enjoyed watching them play the game.
they really fought hard. they worked hard. they cried when they lost. they screamed when they got tired. they strained even when things got tough. they cheered when they won. and they appreciated every little thing they recieved. appreciated every person who supported them. these were girls who spent at least 30 minutes doing up their hair for each match during the tournament, and i’d wonder why it was so important that their hair had different colour rubber bands.
that batch of girls were really something. to think they are still competitively playing netball now, is really something.
its really just very pleasing to see them going places now. tracy, yin ling, yong jia, qiao wei, shi ying, yu zheng, hema, yen ting, etc…. kinda miss seeing yuting, jocelyn and nadia, etc play too……. haha….
oh well…. its kind of a random post with alot of things on my mind that i dont want to sort out after a few hrs of marking. but really, i wish them all the best..
and i hope the current netball girls achieve things too… 🙂
