Last Day of Summer class
June 2, 2010 was a big and hectic day for me. It was the last day for my wushu summer class and final exams for environmental law.
I intended to bring a camera with me. But somehow I cannot convince my siblings to lend me their DSLR. So I thought why not bring the owner of the camera along with me....and so I did.
I brought my sister with me as my photographer. At first she thought that she will need something to bring along to pass time. But when we arrived in my class, she was enjoying taking pictures.
We arrived a little earlier so that I can change shoes. The class seem smaller than what we had for the past two months. Some of my classmates didn't want to finish the class. Some of them didn't want to pay so they abscond after one and a half months practice. Some of my classmates were just waiting for this day so they could just stop practicing. I, on the other hand, was one of those few people who wanted to continue practicing even class starts.
Even before the class began, one of my little classmates had an accident. He bumped his head on the floor because another naughty boy pushed him. It was a really big nasty bump. I was the one who went to the nearest store to buy some ice. Damn, I need to go there with my precious wushu rubber shoes that I don't use to walk on streets. By the time I got back, he was a little calmer. They were all flabbergasted when they saw that I bought a big pack of ice. I had no choice. There are no available small pack of ice.
We went on with our practice while the little injured boy was being attended by our coach and the little naughty boy was punished. We were all excited to do all the things we learned from the class. As usual, the little girl I was with was an over-achiever-know-it-all-git. She was really annoying, but I just don't give a big damn deal about her, because I don't want to lose my wits because of her. Good thing there was "the martian"and "the starfish", my two classmates who were a lot older than her and who can understand me. They share the same sentiment with me about the girl.
When the practice was finished, we had photo ops with our coaches, Willy Wang and Vicky Ting. I was happy to be with them. I got to have a new sport, a new group of friends, new social life, new addiction,and an old new environment (because of having a new Chinese community friends). It was the first time in my life that I was really interested with a sport. it was not only the chance to get slimmer, but the chance to be really good at something. I feel fulfilled alone. I feel that I don't need guys or boys to be in my life to be really happy about something in my life.
Afterward, I let my sister go home without me. And I have to rush to go to school to have my final exams. It was surprisingly simple yet difficult exam. It was a very brain wracking exam.
I had finished my exam when the professor asked for a favor, for me to give to the dean's office the spare booklets. However, the office was already closed. So I went back to the class. She old me to leave it to the guard. My two guy classmates, who were very close to me, and I, waited for my professor because we have to give her a ride till her sister's home. It was a fun ride because we had a long chat with our prof. I really hope that we pass this subject, because I know that maám is one difficult prof to please...whew!
