WidgetBucks - Trend Watch -

The 6th batch seniors had their graduation last night( was kindda tired so I started blogging this down only in the morning). Most of them have will be leaving Philly and returning back to Singapore at then end of this month(June).

Last Performance

The Seniors, batch 6

I was IT support for the event, but is just a glorified name for the person who sets up the projector(which Gean forgot to bring initially :p) and playing the graduation video. Speaking about the video, it was simply amazing, really. Pacey who made it is definitely talented in this aspect. The video was touching yet funny and the choices of songs were simply the best.

Guys Only

Gals Only

The event was really nice, lots of important guests, the seniors really dressed up for the occassion. All of them got a chance to give a speech, which they really gave from the heart, very touching. After all the speeches and stuff, we had a very fun photo taking session! But unfortunely my glasses got knocked off and stepped on so I had to get it repaired soon.

Batch 6 + 7

Well looking back at this 6mths, the 6th batch seniors really had alot of impact on my life. I still remember arriving lost and confused with the rest of batch 7. At the airport was Kaihong, Peiling to fetch us and showed us around on day 1. They took the day off and had to bring us around in the cold, really made us feel more at ease. Over this 5-6 months, I got to know all 18 of the seniors very well, hanging out with many of them. I can still remember the Florida Spring Break Trip, 5 jnrs + 5 snrs, it was a blast. They will certainly be missed when they return back to Singapore, the period without them would certainly feel different. One Chapter of their life is coming to an end, yet another will open when they return back to Singapore. As for me, I still have 6 more months to go, to learn, to experience.

I can still remember the first song that Pacey used in his video, it was from the Movie, Rent: Seasons of Love. There simply couldn't be a song more apt for this occasion.

Song: Seasons of Love
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure
A year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love? Measure in love

Seasons of love. Seasons of love

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes!
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Journeys to plan.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life
Of a woman or a man?

In truths that she learned,
Or in times that he cried.
In bridges he burned,
Or the way that she died.

It's time now to sing out,
Tho' the story never ends
Let's celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends
Remember the love!
Remember the love!
Seasons of love!

As I listened to the song, I wondered, when it comes to my turn to graduate, how will I look back at the entire year? How will I measure it? Can it even be measured? The things I did, the places I visited, the people I meet, how do I even measured how well it went? Maybe there really is no way to measure it, I can only look back and reminscent the good times, the bad times, the fun times and just smile, or cry. Well, I guess I will find out when the time comes, for now, I can only live life to the fullest.
