This performance, for a lack of a better word, was interesting. It wasn't my favorite performance but it was still pretty good. Would I recommend it? Well that's a hard question to answer. You see, some of the acts simply bored me to tears. However, some simply took my breath away. \
The show was spoken entirely in French (I think). Despite having learned French for more than half a year now, I still didn't understand half of what they were saying. After I watched the show, I went to the Wikipedia page of the show and it explained what the show meant. I guess it has a lot of meaning behind the costumes and everything. After reading the page, I somehow understood the show at a deeper level. I understood why certain characters acted as they did. I want to keep this spoiler-free, so I'll just leave it here.
Nothing much has been happening in my life recently. Of course, as I mentioned in my earlier post, things are getting harder due to increased workload etc. But what's really getting harder is coping. You see, when I was in primary school, I could watch hours of television on end and still manage to finish my homework on time. Now, with other commitments such as my French lessons, debate training and other stuff, every minute of my day has to be maximized or I would have to sleep at midnight every day. I am a self-admitted procrastinator and I know that I should probably pick up that pen and start doing my worksheets but I can't. I tell myself that I just need 1 more minute to do my work. Just 1 more minute... Which then turns into 1hour, 2 hours and then, as the clock strikes 9, I realise that I've shot myself in the foot.

Time really flies. It's August, and I've survived 6 months in NYGH. I've made some friends, my dear Ee Ning, Yalin, Wing En, Lydia. Not forgetting those who followed me here from NYPS. My beloved Xuan Yi struggles in debate with me while Min remains the top of the class.
I've decided to inject new life into this blog. After all, it has been with me since P5.
This blog hasn't changed much but I certainly hope I have. :) Gosh I realise how irritating I must have been back then. Bleurgh.
Wing Wing is now in the computer lab with me right now. She apparently has a blog so maybe I'll stalk her as well. I might decide to choose to change my blogskin but due to my noobness, I still haven't learned how to do it yet. Maybe tomorrow.
I realise that I'm a big procrastinator. Tomorrow seems to be the busiest day of the week for me now. Maybe it's because I'm hooked on YouTube. And Ugly Betty. And Pet Society (again). Neopets. Poptropica. I'm going back to P5 again. *shudders*
Some advice: Secondary school can be fun but you have to remember to balance CCA and schoolwork. I'm not doing it perfectly and I'm still not sure how French fits in. So.
Watch this space! (Why have I resorted to cliches -__-)
