Well, at least you can say today was eventful.
Today, we had the Sports Day of the orientation. Basically, we run around the school playing tag games against other groups. Our group's number is actually quite pathetic, a ratio of 9:7, that's the number of year2s to freshies. Exact number...but I have to say that these 7 freshies are all pretty outgoing and cooperative. They worked together, chatted, and have bonded quite well. In fact, they probably have already interacted more than MY CLASS had for the past year.
Games we played, at least games that I remembered playing. Passing water in cups held in mouth. Joined in on this, and got water on the person-that-I-was-passing-to's face. Water got into my mouth and shirt. Was fun though.
People on two sides, they need to use the chairs shattered in the distance between the two ends to get to the other side. This is a very violent game. Damaging too, to the chairs. Was watching from the side. Scary.
There's a groundsheet, on the opposite side there's letters on it. You have to form a word with the letters given. But first, you have to flip it over with your people standing on it. Jasmine was on freshie's back for part of the duration. I have picture *coughsofbackmailcoughs*.
Then, the game of communication. People standing of an narrow plank. Would alternate the positions to what the game master want as a criteria. This game master, PeiShan - SC of XMEN, was evil. She would supposedly make the people on one end move to the other. Well, not to say I was not amused. I would not be, if I was playing. However, I did not, so...it was fun.
The last one I remember, is a game of protecting the egg. You would try to save an egg by using straws and masking tape. The egg would be dropped from an height. If it don't crack, you score. Two different height. Ours BOUNCED during the first drop. It would have survived the second if it landed on the base. Well, too bad.
There's other games, just that I don't remember. When we got to the parade of the mascots, they wanted a relay match. Which got an freshie injured. SERIOUSLY INJURED, the paramedic were called in, placed an neck brace on, put on stretcher and carried off. Like woah, serious shit. It's not even clear to most of us how he was injured. The parade was called off. Unfortunate really, it would have been the most fun of the entire orientation. We would see the mascots tomorrow but it would be more fun today. Music blasting, and they would parade around...
We'll see how things goes tomorrow, as I did not attend my own Convention Day last year.
