=80= Words of Melancholy: Strike the Bell

“Make your choice, adventurous Stranger,
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.”

The Magician’s Nephew, CS Lewis


I really like this poem. I believe if i was Digory, i would have struck the bell too. Sincerely, though it released an evil witch, it also opened up a portal to Narnia, where amazing animals talk and amazing adventures happens! Digory also gotten an apple that healed his mother!



=79= Melancholic Reflections: Poly

I am not sure if i have ever said this before; I really enjoy Poly life. Not because it is slack or anything, but because i enjoy the system and the people.

In secondary school, you will go through one/one and a half hour(s) of lessons. You will take up like 4 subjects a day and receive homework from each subject. In poly, i have 3/2 hour lessons, and i take 2 subjects a day. In every sense, this does not mean i like long lessons, but rather that i have more time to absorb what the teacher taught! Homework is more manageable as well.

Then, i like the class structure. Last year, i had a class of 23 people, compared to my secondary school of 42. When you have a smaller class, bonding is easier, you make close friends easier. Back in secondary school, i am only close to a few people, the people sitting around me, my DnT friends and my Math group. Not that it made such a big difference in Poly, i didn’t have many friends, only, the two girls that sat beside me, the bridge group and my good friend that stays a block away. People in poly seemed to be more mature and they are more acceptive of who to be their friends.

I really give thanks for the chance to study in Ngee Ann! 🙂
