That post of heating and hating a certain person, that is. Not unless you know my Blogger password, which is painfully obvious (Maybe it is 'painfully obvious') and my blogger account, which is painfully un-obvious (Maybe it is 'painfully un-obvious').
I've noticed something. Majority of us are robots, following routines and do what we;re programmed to do, but there is a small percentage of aliens. Those who couldn't care less about what other people think and will break the rules without hesitation when they see a need for it.
To most of us - robots - everything exists at eye level. One rarely looks up, unlike aliens who can move their head up and down. And this is so true. For the past week or so, I've been observing crowds. There are only one or two people who look up, if any at all.
And most of us complain about how ugly the world is, how unfair it is and such, but I have to completely disagree with you.
Go to an open area, look up and you'll see what I mean.
How can you say there isn't beauty in this world? It's sitting right under (Or in this case, above) our noses. So...yeah.
...TK has decided to air-condition the hall, and they're, well, making us donate and collect donation for it.
Now as you all [should] know, I like collecting donations and stuff, and I collected $100 in three days for some NCC Beach Cleaning thing. I haven't collected a single cent for the funding needed to air-condition the hall.
And for good reason.
You see, I collect donations willingly and enthusiastically if the money/things collected will go to charity or helping people study or giving people a second chance and stuff. And I still don't like people. If it's to protect the environment, do something about pollution/global warming and the such, I'm all up for it.
The air-conditioning of the hall is the total opposite of that. Think about it. Air-conditioning the hall for probably 12 (Or more) hours a day, coupled with the staff room, the general office and the auditorium.
I am seriously against this. Firstly, some teachers can't even close the doors of the staff room or HOD room or whatever (And yes, I actually helped close them), which are air-conditioned.
Personally, I think that we can all do without the air-conditioning. We'll all live through it, right? And it's not as though we'll be very uncomfortable and stuff. And even more personally, I think a little discomfort for us humans is better than killing the environment.
Sure, other schools and places have more air-conditioning and they would be even more environmentally-unfriendly, but do we have to add to that? Think about it. Think about the hours they'll leave the air-conditioning on and the hours students actually spend inside the hall. I do not think they school is so vigilant so as to turn the air-conditioning on and off when they have better things to do.
Also, after a while inside the air-conditioned hall, people will start feeling cold and I doubt that the staff will be kind enough so as to let the students go outside for some warm sunshine.
Also, have you ever noticed how the hall is structured? There are gaps in the walls. Big gaps at that. If the school were to install air-conditioners in the hall, I would think that they'd have the common sense to renovate the wall. Why waste the money, energy and electricity?
Wouldn't helping students from needy backgrounds be a better thing to do with the money? Or a scholarship instead, to motivate them to do well. Or to do more CIP things, like helping poor families, orphans and the such.
For the 'comfort' of a tiny percentage of the human population, will you permanently scar the already horribly wounded face of the environment? Will you stand for it?
I know I won't, and I will not let this matter rest without trying to stop it. Call me all you like, I'm going to do everything in my power to stop this. Yes, stop. I'm sorry if any of you disagree with me, but I think that your comfort and how it will affect your 'O' Level grades are bullshit. There are more important things than you or your studies (Yes, there are).
If any of you support me in this matter, please contact me as I shall be writing a letter to Mr Lee regarding the matter and the more support I can get, the better.
On Saturday, February 09, 2008, I earned the Mongoose Mowdown achievement in Halo 3.
The achievement is unlocked when you splatter someone with a Mongoose in a ranked free-for-all playlist. This guy threw a grenade at my Mongoose with me on it, sending me flying towards him an *splat*.
