Well, i've sort of changed my mind about which JC i want to go to next year.
My previous choice was Anderson Junior College. Now it's beginning to look more like Nanyang Junior College. To be absolutely honest, i suspect my own intentions for this sudden turn-around. Why Nanyang over Anderson?
I suspect it could be because of FriendX(whose identity i will not reveal for privacy's sake).
I only just learnt today that FriendX wanted to go to NYJC, and not wanting to cut short a friendship, i decided to consider NYJC as well.
I was skeptical at first, because NY seems to have this reputation for having high standards in Chinese Language, but my choice was affirmed later when i checked out the NY website and discovered that this was not necessarily so. I've sent an email enquiring about this just in case. No reply yet.
The question is this: Am i choosing NY over AJ simply because of FriendX, or is there some more practical reason?
You see, if it's simply beause of FriendX, then i'm not so sure it's a wise choice. The fact is, once we enter JC level, it's unlikely our friendship will remain as it is today.
He's intending to take up an arts course, while i'm more inclined to take up a science one, so the chances of us being in the same class are - lets face it - null.
Things will definately change, and friendship-wise, not necessarily in a very positive way. It's sad but inevitable.
Besides, who says friendships don't last outside school? It's rarely the case that once a person leaves a certain school he breaks off all ties and relations from it, right?
So could it be that my interest in NYJC is sincere and not just twisted by the human urge to retain bilateral relations with another of the similar species?
Honestly, why not? It is a fact that NY's campus is much newer. It's website is also refreshingly modern-looking and up-to-date, showing quite conclusively that the JC pays alot of attention to the potentials of the internet. It's also not all that far from my home, albeit i'll probably have to transfer buses en route, but it's not as if i'm not used to that. Two and a half years in Rangoon Road have brought me that experience.
I don't know. Right now, i'm tempted to just go along with the NYJC thing, but i haven't totally forgotten the fact that maybe, just maybe, it's not the wisest decision i'll make.
What makes it worse is another close friend, FriendY, who intends to go to AJC. What of her?
Decisions are really so tough to make.... Or maybe i'm being too emotional, and i should just try to look at this from a cold, robotic sort of way....
