Pioneer training #1,2,3 and test

When i said the holidays just started, it didn't ACTUALLY start until today. The last week i've been really busy, as i had to go back to school for girl guides. There were also lots of pioneer training practices since our skills weren't very good and we kept having to do the different things over and over again. The most tiresome one was obviously fire lighting, since we had to dig a hole, keep the fire going and boil water all in 15 minutes. Not just that, but we had to collect a lot of punks, twigs, and kindling, like everyday, because we had training consecutively from Wednesday to Friday.

For the sake of fire lighting, my friends and i went everywhere just to find punks and twigs. We were like desperately picking up sticks at our school field complaining about how this was the first time we've ever loved sticks so much while our other friends watch us. And yesterday was the pioneer test. It went quite well i guess, only for fire lighting i think i exceeded the 15 minutes a little :P Also this really thick wood gave me a scratch on my leg and i really have to say, this was the first time i've ever gotten so many scratches in a day.

Besides all that, in the mornings and after pioneer training, my so called huh gg gang that consisted of Siti, Hui Wen, Sharlotte and I, really bonded a lot throughout the whole week. We met up in the mornings for breakfast, and lunch after pioneer training. Which was obviously really fun to be able to spend time with my friends every single day of the week, excluding school, because, y'know you get to see sides of people when it comes to these survival skills and stuff.

Another thing that also happened was that on Friday, i saw strawberry(certain someone) with his little gang(that i call the fruit gang) and he was there being all cute and stuff and his laugh!! I was just opposite him exaggerating about his overwhelming cuteness. I know this really isn't right because_____________.

 But this week really has been fun, and here's some photos of it. I didn't get many cuz' well we were training lol.
This was my little fire i made during training

I've realised something- I haven't been too honest with myself. I'm talking about feelings, thoughts, anything that comes to mind. And I haven't been honest with you, too, those on my blog right now. For those that have been reading my blog for the past almost three years, the first year was fun. Pure, innocent, a 13 year old discovering herself, basically. Second year, a tad bit more emotional and personal. A bit of a break from blogging though, and definitely improvements in my writing. Made some friends online, it was fun.
Remember that affiliates linking thing I had? And that little chat box? Unfortunately, because of my content that has evolved through the years, I removed anything that could link people to my blog. Third year, come on. I pretty much stopped blogging for half a year I think, and mainly because I've gotten busy and I stopped trusting my blog. I've been afraid, you know? So afraid of people finding out how I feel and how I think. I don'…

It's my birthday.

I just turned 16 today. Obligatory, I had to write about it. As i've said lots of times, 2016 has been so incredibly busy for me. I think, it's mostly filled with achievements. Oh, and, I just realised i had a draft third blogoversary post that still isn't completed, but lets just forget about it alright? You guys know what i've been up to, so i don't have to repeat them again. I'm 16 now. I created a bank account recently, found a job, have great friends, and i think i'm on my way to realising that a certain someone just isn't worth it anymore. I had much more to write just now, but i've kinda lost the mood a little. I think you'll understand. I'll publish this little thing and update it further on. You'll understand. Excuse the informality.
The third blogoversary is in a few days now, and i honestly don't have much prepared to post because i'm just rotting at home. But since this is merely a life blog, i'm just gonna say some things to my future self.
1. Stop over reacting
2. Stop being so paranoid
3. You know that saying all this won't help with your paranoia, but just calm down.
4. Everything is gonna be fineeee

Anyway, i don't have much left. To be honest, i'm not sure if i've just forgotten that this MY blog and i can post anything i want, but i think i've gotten a little afraid of revealing my feelings. I have all these secrets and everything that are so hard to just express and even tiny things can be hidden through simple questions and i can't even tell people the reasons why i don't want to do this or i don't want to do that. I don't have anything to hide, honestly, but i'm just afraid that whatever i say will be used against me. This also made me feel really gu…
