The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood,
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

not feeling very well right now. maybe thats why couldnt concentrate much in lessons today. something was just nagging at me... not tip-top condition.
anw, happy birthday to the two darlings! (: dear hannah walked miles and miles to look for nice stuff for both of them. dont know how she does it... while i just lagged behind and degened and died... haha...
today gym we did something different. we challenged ourselves further. not that we dont each trng but today we took it a step further. i like gyming with van (: 16 reps, heavier weights. i stood in front of the lat pull machine and i actually felt dread filling me. dread and fear. quite hilarious to be frightened of a piece of metal. but anw, its easier if you dont think about it and think instead about how you're going to finish it.
for the 10 reps i know i looked at the key sitting nicely on the plate and the thought that i was mad flashed across my head. thanks van for the help with resisting and lifting... heavy weights is easier cause its less reps but its the thought of the no. of plates that is daunting. commented that we're abit pyscho cause we get super happy when we can increase plate... but java replied that its cause its a confirmation that our hard work has given results...
exco results revealed today. we spent many hours deliberating on it. and in doing so, our priorities and values became clearer. at the end of the day, we all want the best for their team and more importantly for rjcanoeing in the long run. just by being interviewed means its a vote of trust from your teamates. being in exco is an opportunity for your plus points to be put into use for serving others. but not being in exco doesnt mean you're not capable or stuff.. its just wads best for the team in the end.
standing at the bottom of the steps, looking at them, saw them as j2s. not as my dearest team but as j2s. saw everything from how an outsider would look at them. wondered if our j2s had felt the same too... so fast.... so fast...
and once again i feel blessed to have the 11 of them. so now its time for the j1s to form their own team. to build the team they wish to see. i hope they dont try to build our team, because every batch is diff. and im sure there r stuff they can improve on frm our year. hope that they'll carry on the canoeing spirit till the next year and fire that passion in the subsequent years...
i really miss sitting down with all of them. after the team runs. watching the sun set. watching the clouds turn pink orange, yellow and finally blue. running till the track turned black. running in the dark till some smart fellow turned on the lights of the specs gal. running. running. running. i miss running. ):
grrr... throat pain. dont wanna be sick ):
