Using fun as a happiness pill since the start of the school year 2010-2011.
Last Tuesday and Wednesday, I spent my moratorium with a few of the people from this section. We had an initial count of 14, but that dwindled down to 9, which was sad. Nevertheless, I had fun with these people— like I’ve always have since 3rd year.
Drop solid Sodium in water and you’ll get an explosion— no matter how small. When my first 3rd year adviser showed such a simple reaction to us, we were amused, but let down in the end. He had told us that it made a grand explosion during Strontium’s class and we found out from Rubidium that it also worked for them. Now that I think about it, maybe it didn’t explode or blow up because even without the solid element, Sodium, my section, was explosive enough as it is. It’s a section filled with so much energy— energy that never goes to waste. Everyone has a smile on their face amidst the stress that graded group requirements deal to us.
Sodium is basically happy-go-lucky & lazy and it’s a stark contrast to the responsible Dahlia & the quickly worried Sapphire. The difference was tremendous that I allowed myself to be sucked into such a new world. I’m thankful that I allowed myself to do that because it allowed me to see a world of fun and laughter— a world I never felt at home with. In Sodium, no matter how hard one tries to pull away from the section, he/she end up being pulled back because in Sodium, everyone has a place. That’s what I actually love about Sodium the most— everyone has a place there. Those who’ve been casted out by our batch as weird and different— when they ended up in Sodium, they were given a home— a place of acceptance.
What I’m trying to say is that happiness draws people together. It’s also the same happiness that helps us understand each other’s situations and mindsets. In Sodium, the atmosphere is filled with love and understanding. I felt at home in Sodium— not discriminated nor ignored. I love Sodium for those two main reasons— the people there, as a whole, had the greatest character among the sections I’ve been in.
Four Chemistry teachers, Three advisers, Two treasurers, One Family.
This is Sodium, my one and only 3rd year High School section— happy-go-lucky, understanding and seductive.
