Went back to DHS last Saturday thanks to Ms Fang for jio-ing us. Sat in at the DHSBT Welcome Tea this year, and saw so many batches of juniors that I no longer even recognise. It was super surreal and as the teachers and team captains gave their pep talks before the season started this year, I also thought back on my experience with the team.
Marcus gave a mini speech to the juniors as the ‘eternal leader’ (hahaha) and talked about how friendships with our teammates were the greatest takeaway from playing badminton. And I so totally agree.
Through the six years that I was in the badminton team, I went through ups and downs with how I felt about the team and the entire CCA. There was definitely a time in my life where I seriously found them annoying as hell (lol), and also a time where I always looked forward to trainings and anything badminton-related.
But I think at the end of the day we are still tight because of all the memories we have.
I don’t have the photos we took with Ms Fang on Saturday, so that old photo from Taiwan will have to do. And we can finally say that we have 多年的感情 heh.
