This reminds me of my high school years. Even now, to be honest, I really miss my high school years, especially the long residential trips that I was guaranteed a spot on virtually all the time. As mentioned in my earlier posts or somewhere else that I can’t remember, until now I still can’t really cope with the fact that trips that aren’t related to a subject are no longer guaranteed assets; instead of just simply saying yes and pay the fees I actually have to compete with others.

It reminded me of how it’s been nearly five years since I left my 11-16 state comprehensive secondary school – a place which played a great role in the development of my personality and my interests.

What if 2016 was a great year

My blog today VS my blog in November 2010
