Hey, I'm Melissa. I'm the girl who is best friends with love and still believes prince charming exists somewhere out there-- fully equipped with great eyes and an immature sense of humor. I wear too many bracelets and I can't concentrate on the conversation if the TV's on. I love surprises and hardwood floors. My lucky number is 13 and right now my toenails are painted 5 different colors. I love Taylor Swift and I hope you her too. This is my blog, and I love you for looking at it.

ORD 2011

It's like midnight now but I suddenly had this urge to blog about ORD yesterday. I've never quite gotten so emotional about any past ORDs but this time round I just felt sad that time flies by so fast and we are no longer juniors in the CCA. Part A year, Jaslyn and Huiyi took us; Part B year, Nadra and Zhiru took us; Part C year, Huixian and Jermaine took us; and next year, Jallene and Mira are technically our USM and ASM.

It's not actually the fact that growing up intimidates me, although yes it does of course, but what made me sad was that I really liked the Part Ds who ORD-ed this year. I don't really know why, but maybe it's just the fact that they had been with us for the longest, and they did the most for us. (sorry no offence meant to other PS and APSes)

I didn't actually get very upset during the parade, which btw sucked because it was in the tiny koi pond. I felt a little touched (would you call it that?) at the exchanging gifts part, and it was really nice of Huixian and Jerm to make us that video and card. I'll always treasure them! <3 Also, thank you all so, so much for everything, I love you, and I'm crying a bit writing this. I never thought I would, but it doesn't matter. You'll always be in my heart, forever and always, and I will remember and keep close to me all the awesome times we've had together. I promise with my platoon mates that we'll try to be the best-est-est-est seniors ever to live your legacies!
'Cos indeed, together we are MORE!

And, gotta say our duties start really fast. I'm commanding tomorrow, and am feeling a tad nervous. Wish me luck!

P.S. Special thanks to the seniors who came back! Thank you for making my time in RGSNCCAIR so memorable! Love you too!
