The Security Guard

I think the security guard has quite a boring job. pity him.

I saw him smoking outside the school gate before assembly.

then I think he has to hang around the gate area and watching at people and vehicles go by everyday, wearing a formal uniform with tie and in the hot weather. how pitiful. so everyday is just standing at the same few places, nothing special, nothing much, unless something happens of course.

“to build a democratic society…”

It’s SC elections again…
If students need to have notebooks right under their nose so that it is convenient for them to vote, perhaps such students don’t have any responsibility at all.
It’s the student’s responsibility to find time to logon and vote at their own time, not the school’s responsibility to provide such convenience for the students.
There’s L28, there’s home computers, and if students are not responsible enough to go and vote, then perhaps voting shouldn’t be implemented at all.

It comes to show that students do not take much priority in such exercises. Judging from the faces of the year 2005 voting, not really a lot of people voted. Excuses include “didn’t bother” “don’t know where to vote” “forgot” etc.

The Government does not come personally to our doorstep to request us to vote for the President, does it?
No, it’s our responsibility to proceed to the relevant voting stations to vote.
Or rather, the Govt needs to threaten to fine us so that we have the responsibility.

Perhaps, it’s a matter of putting a threat to something mankind has created for the well being on society just so that other fellow human beings can adhere to it.


wah these few days are really hot and I can’t stand it.
and worse is when aircons broke down, as VJC aircons are infamous for. Walking around school compound is really warm, and one only wishes to get into the LTs and classrooms asap. it only disappoints when the LT is not sufficiently cool enough, and it’s even worse now that the aircon of L26 has broke down again, wonder this time is the zillionth time or what. well as usual, teachers and students complain that remote controls can’t be found, and TAs have confiscated those in the V2x com labs, while those in classrooms are in the hands of the individual classes.

the grass are getting dry and brown everywhere, it’s said that it hasn’t rain for 21 days, i wonder if the reservoirs are drying up.

at night, even though it’s night, my room is pretty warm and I feel sticky and uncomfortable after sitting at my desk for a few hours.
