Finally, after 2 weeks of OGL preparation and one week of orientation, it’s all over…so sad. We are now suffering from POD (thanks to serena for inspiration to invent that acronym), and symptoms include reluctance to start monday. our minds are ringing with orientation cheers, mass dances, and images of the younger ones.
just feel that being OGL is so fun…suddenly feel very bonded with the other OGLs, then like other friends and classmates become very far away. it was really a great experience, a totally different and probably better than being a J1, and probably more memorable than last year’s orientation due to the amount of time spent on it. From the day pre-camp, to banner painting, to OGL camp, to the actual orientation, to sea regatta, it was all fun, and it all happened so fast, so quick, so good.
as things turned out to be, I suppose it was better than what I’ve expected. Reading what I’ve typed in November, I said that I joined Star Wars OG, now known as Vader, without knowing anyone. Then I got to know that Terence Lim, my old VS friend is in it. Then got to know a few other VS people whom I seldom talked to, and now got to know many other Vader OGLs, and especially got along very well with my fellow flick OGLs: Serena and Zhiqi from S63, and Hian Chuan from SC. Vacuum rocks though we suck! =p We suck…ssssiiii…sss….
The other flick names were cool…Valer, Vovivan, Voda, Vavavinks, Vanakin, and Vorce.
one of the funny parts was when we were learning the Vollywood Theme Song aka Victorian Anthem…
we were singing singing practicing, then some VS guys like samuel and hong kin preparing to cheer in the centre, but the SC talking – audrey – say VS guys please do not do your cheers, this is VJ, not VS, pls return to your OG, so they pretend pretend go back to their OG. but after that, when we sang again for the last time, we heck and cheered in the centre, J2 OGLs AND J1 VS people…haha
this batch of VS like to push a lot….they do spelling cheer more violent than us
yesterday, when we did after mass dance, there was a girl who was trapped in our cheer…lol
Mr. Dominic Chua thought the cheers were amazing, better than the school cheers. He thought if they could be incorpoated into the repertoire of school cheers if possible….haha. cos he says that during times like match support, it is when you want the really funky cheers, not the same old boring ones.
Hmm, well speaking about cheers, all OGLs love the R-O-D-E-O cheer, and the Oreo cheer which was invented by kin to spite Orion (but how ironic that they won overall), and the words of “one more time” rings in our heads as we repeated the cheers so many times on the last day on Voscar Night.
Voscar Night was fun, though the 8 role plays were boring except the first one which was Vaders! People’s attention span barely lasted after that. It was just to boring to watch so many role plays. Maybe they should scrap the concept of role play, or tweak it around or something. Doing it in production houses aka allies for the OGLs was a good idea. Or maybe include other stuff like singing, dancing instead of just skits. Mass Dance and cheering as finale, though they have to dismiss cos parents waiting outside. But we continued our mass dance nevertheless after returning valuables. after that we were all wet and sweaty.
Ivan is my ultimate junior man, he’s the guy who took over me in VS IT Club as the chairman, now he’s in my OG, and he’s in my junior class taking the same subj combi as me, and he’s joining icomp, and there are chances of him to become iComp chair…haha. What a coincidence.
speaking about icomp…as per experience, anyway initially it’s quite weird to join icomp because it’s like everyone ask you for cca, then everyone else seems to be joining sports, and when you say you’re in icomp, people will wondering what it is and you’ve to explain that it’s computer club of sorts
but after a year, it feels fulfilling cos i’ve done quite some stuff and gained some fame and popularity amongst teachers and some students, and i’ve done much that other people appreciate
Now i’m widely advertised by my fellow OG OGLs that I’m icomp chairman and this and that video is done by me…and the fake CCA – SDU – Social Development Unit’s fake website in powerpoint and MSN conversation was done by me too. Some of the other Vader OGLs were quite amazed by what I did, some say they were amazed that I’m icomp president, while kah meng was joking he was jealous of me for four years liao. lolx.
Well, on another hand, sarah said she was surprised that I’m an OGL, she thought I wasn’t the cheering and dancing kind of person.
on voscar night, mrs chan commented that I was called ‘Little Gi’ by some other people. Mr dominic chua says that should be a complement !wink
oh ya, on the first day of orientation, we showed the 20th anniversary video and it was quite well received, people clapped for felicia chin, VJC being top5, beckham etc.
we also set up live camera on projector screen during mass dance sessions for better view but the projector too lousy too dark
and also for the first time we had e-voting during orientation, when they voted for the best SAA – supporting actor and actresses from the different OGs. they smsed and the results were revealed later. Vader won both. It was quite weird cos the SMS server was slow, so at first some leading, some losing, then vader was leading when I checked and told SC, later it was losing, as of now it’s leading at a high of 600 votes, while others have 300+. Voting had quite a good response after all…about 2000 votes in total…I thought nobody voted…chey it’s just the server lagging.
I think this is the most high-tech orientation ever in the history of VJC. First there’s showbuzz showbiz, the papparazi…on the first day afternoon, there were immediate pictures being uploaded onto the laptop and shown on screen…the pictures were only taken in the morning. Secondly, there’s live camera on screen for mass dance. Thirdly, there’s e-voting. Fourthly, there was a muvee shown on the last day with some clips of the first/second day taken by icomp. Fifth, there was an sms thing sponsored by singtel during station games but it was screwed and it was scrapped afterwards.
Sea Regatta was fun, some say it was more fun than SC’s games… got dunked and dunked people. But there was a man, a jogger/passerby, who wasn’t happy with us occupying the path and complained that it was not the first time, and was very demanding, asked for someone’s number, didn’t want to see the teacher now etc. like eat-finish-nothing-to-do-those-kind…
Isn’t it ironic when Vacuum won a captain’s ball game and hian chuan shouted…vacuum…you suck! lol
Camera was safe at sea. But camera got wet during SC’s station games when I was pointing around preparing to find a good scene, then people playing waterbombs beside me and…SPLASH! I was hit, was very wet, and my camera tio water on the lens and body.
I think my flick is very lucky cos got me to take pictures of them =p
Vaders and Rodeo are the best allies ever! haha…we went for OGL combined dinner at Millenia Walk during the last day of OGL camp, a Wednesday. Security guards came and said as long as we don’t play with the water and clear up, it’s ok. Then we went again on the Orientation Week Wednesday for combined OG dinner at the same place..where the fountain is. But this time we weren’t lucky. Security came with a manager, and he didn’t like us to be there, say it’s private property, took down some of our names, and asked us to leave. but it was pretty late and time to go anyways so it was okay. haha.
My flick went to two dinners including the combined OG one, and one lunch. This is more than what I had last year. They were also nice to prepare something – a flower and some chocolate to the OGLs. I did not do this to my OGLs last year. We, as OGLs, treated them some ice cream in school. My OGLs did not do this to me last year. Hope that Vacuum will be united and say ‘hi’ to each other in school! Compared to my legion which sorta forgot about each other a few months later.
And so it’s now all over. Back to tutorials and tutorials and lectures and studies and blah and the like.
Cheers to zhiqi, serena and hian chuan. you rock!
What if I didn’t join Star Wars? What if there wasn’t a swap of flick OGLs and I’m not in Vacuum (initially I was alone and I put my name in a flick name with nobody in it, then I got swapped and become to be in Vacuum)?
It’s probably God’s hand that I can be part of this great team of OGLs, of Vaders, and of Vacuum, and that I have people I know in my OG, and that I made great friends with my fellow OGLs.
Say O-Oreo…O-Oreo…O-Oreo…One more time!
Say R-O-D-E-O, R-O-D-E-O, R-O-D-E-O, One more time!
Say R-O-D-E-O, R-O-D-E-O, R-O-D-E-O…go Rodeo!
Vaders, uh-huh uh-huh, we’re cool hunks, uh-huh uh-huh,
Vaders, uh-huh uh-huh, we’re chio-bus, uh-huh uh-huh
