so it seems like the busy time in school have started with competitions, camps, events and of course, classes and more classes.
Extra classes alongside the tutor-tutee program has started a few weeks ago.
As for competitions, this year was started off by Forum Remaja. In my 10+ years of school, this is the first time I have been chosen to represent the school in a competition in Bahasa Melayu. Even my English teacher last year was shocked. So was I. Hahaha. Oh well, I was the conductor of the forum, so my task wasn't as heavy as my three friends' who were the panels. At the venue I got to meet quite a number of ex-schoolmates, of course, considering the fact that my current high school is the third one I attend.
Alhamdulillah, my school's team won first place, and I was even got "Penerusi Terbaik (best host)". I think watching a lot of talk shows and interviews helped, hahaha. So now my BM teacher can stop picking on me in class (at least I hope so). BUT this was only the zone level, meaning the road doesn't ends there. We hope we'll do better in the next level (state), and win again insyaAllah :)
Next week, the whole batch (fifth formers) will go to Marang for three days, from Sunday to Tuesday. It''ll be good to be in a different environment for a while, you know, change the routine a bit so the students don't get bored. Personally, I don't fancy doing the same thing day by day.
The zone level for the public speaking competition was supposed to be on Wednesday, but it was postponed until after the mid-term break. This means I have more time to prepare, Alhamdulillah. I'm hoping to reach nationals again this year, InsyaAllah, so I'll try my best. If I don't make it this year, I can't try again next year. This is my final chance. So let's do this!
Then I have the Fully-Residential Schools' International Symposium (FRSIS) coming up in a few weeks. It's going to be held at Sekolah Seri Puteri, Cyberjaya. I am very excited for this! I can't wait to meet all the participants, both locals and international. My brother was lucky enough to attend the symposium 2 years ago, and he had a wonderful time. Preparations? well, progress in very slow. And by "very slow" I mean I have done nothing. Zippo! *headshot* -___- I'm planning to start soon, insyaAllah.
So I guess that's all I have going on so far. I'm sorry my blog has become a journal of my school activities (;__;)
Yesterday I received the targeted results of my SPM which the school have set. I hope I can reach the target, or better yet, get better results. I'm doing this not only for my school, but for my family, and most of all, myself.
I pray that Allah eases all of me and my friends' affairs, give us guidance, gives us the ability to understand and remember all that we learn, grants us patience and strength, and bless us, our families, and our teachers.
Friends, sometimes we reach a point that we feel so weak and vulnerable. So burdened. I know, happens to me all the time. When it happens, I always remind myself that Allah had said in the Quran;
“Verily with hardship comes ease; verily with
hardship comes ease.”
[Sûrah al-Sharh: 5-6]
This has become one of my most favourite quote from the Quran.
Other than The Almighy, my family and friends help comfort me. Thank you, and may Allah bless you all <3
I just need to work hard. In the words of Caprice (Ariz Ramli), Hustle and Faith. Two things that should never be separated, in my opinion.
Until next time, keep the faith. :)
