but anyways, back in f6, we used to have this really lame polls thing going on. students would have to form parties, and then go head to head to form the so-called government, which was basically a specified f6 society that controls and handles the 'welfare' of f6 students. the 'government' would last till the next year, when the junior batch arrives.
its a lot of shitting bulls. seriously. so called manifestos, but how much of the school can a bunch of students change? but there was the money involved. yum yum.
so anyways, i wasn't initially involved in this escape. i was one of the very few students who actually returned to sch to do f6 (not intentionally, but i'm not complaining now either :P). there was probably about 5% of ex-students, including me, and the rest were 'foreigners'. so being back to my territory, i obviously had some advantage even before i entered f6. people knew me. teachers knew me, and teachers had power to vote too.
there was 2 teams going for the grand elections. and one of the parties had members who wanted out, or left the school completely. there was openings, and they approached me, with the hope of getting a sure seat in the 'govern'. they paid my share of the money, they did all the work, talking, and lies.
i showed my face. for a horrendously named party. ZEST. which reminds me of an orange fruit. not helping was the fact their whole party was themed orange colour. though i love orange colour, but to be serious with the colour orange, something's wrong with ya.
well they thought they had a good idea with ZEST. Z for zealous, E for enthusiastic, and ST(d's). i stress, i was not in the original birth of this party. i was roped in halfway.
i won't give them any compliments for such brightness, but they did have absolute brightness in approaching me.
people knew me. let me brag. let me be arrogant. but it was the truth. people knew me, even if i didnt know them. i could remember their face, but i wouldn't know their name, as they would mine. and i'm not all that bad, i did give a few suggestions, whether they liked it or not, and i did show my face.
i did show my face.
so the voting went like this: president vs president, treasurer vs treasurer, secretary vs secretary, and 5 commitee members vs 5 commitee members.
i was a commitee member. if i wanted to, i could have formed a party and swiped this whole crap clean. but it wasn't worthied.
now i would get (some) power by doing nothing. i had them in my hands. they would beg me to show my face hahahahahahahaha...
but anyways, i won. unsurprisingly. people knew me, teachers knew me, seniors knew me.
and i received the most votes too ;D
more than the president, more than the secretary, more than the treasurer or any other member.
by a large margin too. hah! i'm such a brag eh? i just felt like being proud today.
so pls pardon me today.
