This Road Has Ended. A New One Begins.

Many places I have been
Many sorrows I have seen
But I don’t regret
Nor will I forget
All who took that road with me

Night is now falling
So ends this day
The road is now calling
And I must away

It’s been a long road, for all of us who took this path. The journey was never meant to be easy. Every possible thorn and barrier was placed in front of us tactfully. This post is a tribute to everyone who had it in them to come up to the front and fight.

I didn’t think I had it in me when I began this journey three years ago. I was a confused little teenager, with parents divorced a few months back and only communicating with me brother in harsh confrontations every two or three months, and an obsessive depressing crush on a guy who was not my type. I don’t know about anyone else, But I’ve come a long way. I’ve learnt a lot of things about myself, about the world, and about life. I’ve become a better and stronger person than I used to be, and this is also a tribute to everyone who helped me along the way.
You know who you are. Hats off to you for being the awesome people you are.
What does it take to appear for O Levels? Not much, taking into account that only countries that still go by the British system still stick to this, and that if you don’t prep professionally, it doesn’t really make much of a difference compared to SAT.
But when a teenager like me prepares for this for years, it’s mighty hard to think of it as something trivial, especially right after you get the results.
I was fine. Even when the exams started I wasn’t nervous because I knew how well prepared I was, and that this was just another milestone I had to pass. I didn’t care when the results came out, or what they would be, as long as I got an A* in Chem because my brother said he’d kill me if I didn’t. I was fine even this morning. When the Principal turned on the mic, though, and said, “Best of luck. Here they come,” and took off his coat, I imploded. Even more so, because the first name called was my best friend’s. Mine was second. I’ve been jittery since.
I knew this would be a bittersweet feeling, seeing my results. This is officially the end of the O Level Saga for me. I have another adventure is knocking at my door.
Keep me in your prayers, and maybe I’ll shine brighter than the stars.
Provisional Results. Mine.
Provisional Results. Mine. Teehee.

To these memories I will hold
With your blessing I will go
To turn at last to paths that lead home

And though where the road then takes me,
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell

I bid you all a very fond farewell…

(Lyrics from the Last Goodbye by Billy Boyd)
