NOTHING can beat the moment when my parents shed tears of joy over my SPM results.
Two days before the results were out, I locked myself in the room and deactivated my Facebook account. I was too stressed out myself to look at other people stressing out. I remember crying myself to sleep, MANY TIMES. Then one day before the results came out, my mom took me out. I had been crying so much that I'd forgotten how to smile. After that my mom took me to my favourite teacher's house and I felt A LOT BETTER after that.
I was so scared, so nervous. I REALLY didn't know what to expect. I remember thinking to myself that I'd done my best, I worked hard, there was nothing else I could do but pray.
So pray was what I did. I prayed myself to sleep, I prayed during dinner, I prayed on the way to school, I prayed at EVERY opportunity.
God is good. Seriously. God amazes me.
On that day, I felt too weak to even get out of bed. I looked at myself in the mirror and I saw a total mess. My hair was messy, my eyes were puffy, I suddenly had gigantic pimples overnight, I looked terrible. but I couldn't care less.
My dad followed me to school. My mom was already there. And she knew my results already, I could tell. 5 minutes before I received my results I went to see my parents. I saw tears in my dad's eyes. My mom was grinning at me. I'm so stupid, I thought it was because I didn't do well. I started crying and yelling and I said "I know you know my results, TELL ME now, I cannot do this anymore, PLEASE JUST TELL ME!"
to which my mom said, "no, you collect your results by yourself. Face life, Manpreet, face it."
So when I collected my results, I remember there was this very weird feeling, I felt like I could faint at any moment. There was this HUGE ball stuck in my throat, my heart was about to burst out of my rib cage, my eyes were watery.
I couldn't look at it, my results. When I did, I saw SO many A+es and I started hyperventilating. My father started crying out of joy and my mother hugged me. I was crying, laughing, hyperventilating. My mind was confused, I was confused. I didn't even look at the subjects I scored A+es for.
SO YES, I did it, 8A+, 1As, 1A-. I got an A- for physics and A for Economics. Physics has always been my weakest subject, so I don't mind.
I am only thankful, grateful to SO MANY PEOPLE. but I'm most thankful for God's blessings. :)
PEACE OUT, Y'ALL.
