Am I the same Primary 6 girl who cried upon seeing her PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination) results, knowing that she'd be doomed to spend the next four years in a potentially rowdy neighbourhood school rather than a prestigious, value-added one?
Am I the same 'emo' (quiet and serious) yet overly rightious and innocent Secondary 1 girl, being emotionally wounded by bullies and gangsters on her silent quest to score high enough to get into a better Secondary 2 class?
Am I the same choir girl who 'never smiles' despite countless scoldings and suffers under the whole pretentious act on stage?
Am I the same student whose heartrate increases due to fear with each step closer to school, every single day?
Am I the same Secondary 3 girl who got introduced to and hooked on the Sonic series at the wrong time, pulling her grades down during such a crucial year, making her efforts put into her Secondary 1 year in vain?
Will I ever be as hardworking and persevering as I was in Secondary 4, pulling my grades back up under the test of time for the final graduating exams?

I have finally graduated. With good results at that, too.
And I can genuinely smile and laugh happily without the constant image of my choir instructor scolding me in my mind or being on stage. :)

Onwards, to a new chapter of life.

deep description is deep. but unintentional hehe

P.S. Shoutout to :iconthepuccafan: and :iconmyhappymemories: , my friends I know IRL - while the former was a 'parasite' to me (my poor tissue paper and stationery ;~;  and doesn't listen to advice sometimes :XD: ) and the latter is quite a chatterbox (speaks as fast as a bulletrain, leaving me no chance to voice out my thoughts during some of our conversations :XD: ), I'd like to thank you two for inspiring me, even though I sometimes felt envious of both of your skills but never admitted it ;w;

This artwork took over 10 hours I think. Waughhh :faint:

You really have a gift for promotional art stylizing.
I'm glad you posted this. I know you've already mentioned the details in your journal, but "I can genuinely smile and laugh happily.." makes me a lot more content since you're now doing so well. Maybe I care too much. Shrug 
I must say, I really love how you drew yourself here. I think you're getting better at it with each go.

I appreciate your concern c:

Haha I guess I really am getting better, because I tend to draw myself too often when practising drawing humans :XD:

A gift for promotional art stylizing? Thanks for the compliment :hug: but you probably don't know how much I want to draw something less "promotional" XD Like artworks with more emotion, artworks which tell a story rather than just having a character float around in space (as I've said in Silver's speech bubble in my recent upload).

The above is one of my new year resolutions :P

Wow, such a detailed picture! Literally every paper or book here I can read the words clearly, not to mention how much nostalgia it is for me, I miss SYF! Such a nice pic to show your completion of sec school. ;) Have fun with Poly, but I'm betting you'll miss sec school life at the same time, I still am. :P

I think I'm using that same calculator in this pic.. :O

Drama Club, haha. Acting is one of my other passions, loads of stressful but fun memories. I really miss sec school, most enjoyable time there, you'll definitely miss it, well if you like your own sec school anyway.

Ah, so you can sing? Is it something you enjoy? :)

Ooh I see :O

Hmmm I like singing as part of a group, but never on my own XD That's when I get scared whenever my instructor tests us one by one :P

Oh I know that feeling exactly! Really scary for me too, I would get tested with my speech and character by my instructor, only one in the room talking and if you mess up, oh that red face I always have. :P Although I would say these kind of things are good for your own skill. How was your SYF? Gold with honours? LOL, my drama never even achieved gold.

I see :O

Well before my cohort came into the picture (2011 SYF), my school's choir had been getting Silver every single SYF. My cohort was the first to get a Gold and break the flow :'D We got a 2nd Gold in 2013 too, the year I graduated~

Oh wow! Cool! I actually have a similar story, my drama club had been getting either Bronze or nothing at all straight up until my batch came in, we got Sliver for the first time in my school's history. La la la la Hehe, you must feel honored, as I am, to be able to achieve it together with your own batch. Like we were meant to be there or something. XD
