ok, so my school has this tradition where we have this huge bonding experience with the entire school at a beach. There’s games, food, and music. And each grade has their own colours that they wear thoughout their high school experience( I was green! :D). But the best part is that every year the Grade 12s get a group picture taken and then they (just the gr 12’s) run into the water and have a short swim before we have to leave. My friend and I were watching this every year, excited for when we get to do that.
And finally this was my year to go for a swim (Grade 12! YA!!XD). __However, also every year the weather gets colder and __colder and this year the temp was probably like around 8-9 degrees C. So here my friend and I are freezing our a**es off and yet going for a swim in less than 2 hours! Oh! And did I mention that I’m just getting over a head cold?!
Fast forward to picture time. The minute after the picture was taken, there was a stampede to the water (in which some people almost gotten trampled). Surprisingly, the water was actually warmer than I thought it was going to be, but the minute I got out and the adredaline wore off, I started shaking. And I mean knee shaking, teeth chattering, etc. Unfortunately, other people must have been as cold as I was because there was a HUGE line for the change rooms. By this point my shaking had gotten so bad that I almost lost my balance, not once, but twice. The line hadn’t moved at all so saying good-bye to my dignity, I went in behind the change rooms to, well, change.
Long story short, today was fun. Of course, I’m still de-frosting but It’s also a reminder that I won’t be returning to Nangor Beach next year and I’ll be leaving high school and friends behind. So if I got the chance to do this again, I’d probably take it. :D
