22nd march two thosand and six, wednesday.. SINGAPORE ROBOTICS GAMES were held at nanyang poly for a change.. today was the event we are all working so hard for.. : the schools' robotics competition.. follow a line and collect cans back to base.. sounds easy right? UR head ah~ we been through countless hours of building and programming the robot.... and rebuilding and reprogramming... vomitted jillion liters of blood.. did we succeed? did we screw up
again? but all in all.. it's not about the prize(that's just icing on the cake)
it's about the journey towards this very day.. look back on all the hardships we have been through.. the new friendships that are built, old friendships that had deepen.. the old mistakes that we know we must avold the new things we have learned.. this day is the day that we show off to our teachers, our seniors and other schools what we have done.. but how can we know if we are going the right direction? how do we know if we are doing the right things? we will only know if we had someone else to compare to..
and it is on this very day that we can learn so much! the gathering of so many talented students from different schools created a valuable learning opportunity.. an opportunity to learn from others' mistakes and successes.. to make new friends.. to broaden our minds..
to settle old scores.. *ahem..* this is not the end of the journey.. only the end of a season.. AND it is just the beginning of another longer more intense adventure..
This is just the starting.. a warm-up for the things to come..
