â€œLife is like a novel, you are the author and every day is a new page.â€ There are several major chapters in peopleâ€™s life, and for me another chapter has come to an end. Whether my story will branch off to a positive or negative route heavily depends on how well I have written this particular chapter. This chapter of course is where I take my major examinations, the International Baccalaureate, and depending on how well Iâ€™ve performed, chances of entering the university of my choice will vary accordingly.
Oh well no need to worry that much though since I will have to spend 2 years in the army serving and learning how to defend my country. As much as I donâ€™t really approve of that I donâ€™t really have any other choices. Its compulsory and I just got to do it. Regarding the exams, I believe I will do average. Iâ€™ve screwed up some papers, felt weird about others and think I did well for one or two. Average that out and I guess itâ€™ll be average. Iâ€™m really hoping that my calculations and gut feeling is right, elseâ€¦ oh well life has many routes. There are many ways to write a story. No need to follow the cheesy clichÃ© ones I guess. Yes, that is how I console myself if I do poorly.
Anyways, its 2 months of break before start of some gruelling physical and nation loving activities. 22 months of army life awaits me, how exciting. A note to myself: Got to make good use of these 2 months of break. Planning to learn how to program an app for android and maybe by the end of this 2 months produce a simple one that works. Also going to go complete all that backlog of games Iâ€™ve accumulated over the past few months and years. Lastly, going to do some exercising in preparation for all the physical hardships later on.Â Sounds like a good plan to me, just got to execute it. Better not fall into my usual self of talk only no action. It is a new chapter yea, time to write it and write it well.
To end off, Iâ€™ll share with you one of my recent favourite quote: â€œI failed in some subjects in exam, but my friend passed in all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am the owner of Microsoft.â€ ~Bill Gates. A foreshadowing! Yeah right just consoling my sad self again.
