It's nice to meet you.
My name's Etin.
You seem familiar, like an old friend.
Maybe it's because you're a graduation year.
A year I've been waiting for ever since my freshman year.
A little impatient of me, I know, but to quote my current favourite rapper, Poe, "When the Lord was handing out virtues, what he did with my patience, I don't know".
Graduation years bring with them a certain uncertainty. After all we're about to leave familiar and comfortable routines and be thrust into the chaos and unfamiliarity of a new world.
When I was in JSS 3, I told my classmates that going to SS1 seemed a lot like we had climbed to the top of a mountain and someone had told us we had to come down and climb a completely different mountain.
Perhaps, that's what Life is all about.
On the other hand, it's kinda like respawning in a video game.
A clean slate.
A brand new set of opportunities.
And of course, more boss battles.
Anyway, goodbye 2016, it's been real 🙋✌.
Welcome to my Life, 2017.
I've been expecting you.
Let's do this.
Happy New Year.
