Why so Tulan ???
Yeah there has been much speculation of late that how come boss like having pms like that..whole day scold scold scold. Face black black. It's like things has changed. We're no longer having the same degree of fun anymore. Very regimental. Very strict. So why ah?
Alright....I have to admit that I'm having some problems coping with the new change of my life-style following the start of my 5 mth Industrial Attachment which ends in Dec. (0730-1550 mon- fri ) This is on top of the existing responsibilities I have as the current coach of Sapphires as well as a tutor for my A lvl student.
Of course, this is no reason to complain. You peeps have your own responsibilites and problems too. ppl like delan having to travel all the way from sengkang back to NTU just to train. And tanny and Kangjun who are also working in the day just as I am.
Perhaps i'm getting worn out. I dunno.
But rest assured that Spectrum is my brain child and it took me much pains to set up. And I am putting all my heart and soul for this team to grow. It hasn't been easy, cos we are after all we are a common threat the existing teams in singapore. Of course ma. One more competitor. Esp for the varsity team who sees us as dividing exisiting resources. Stealing their ppl . bla bla bla.
I never denied that i have high expectations. which is precisely why I get pissed when I see basics not executed properly after all the hard work we have put in. At our current level , simple things such as baskets , extensions and shoulder stands should be second nature to us. You find it fustrating too, don't you? esp when you know that these are the things which you can do but for some funny reason you simply cannot perform.
But the main reason why I'm 'pms-ing' all over the place is the attitude of the entire team. We're getting complacent. And this is very dangerous. People are starting to slack. Coming late for training without reasons and being late for yesterday's assignment was really over the top.
And no, I do not pick on people. I have no reason to.
Spectrum would have never been possible without every single one of you. We are a group of ppl who have come together for the love of the sport. All of us enjoy each other's company, bitching together and doing gay + absurd stuff that the common public could never comprehend. But this IS us. This IS the Spectrum culture. Spectrum exists because each and everyone of you compliment each other's strength and weaknesses.
The only thing that i can repay you for your contribution to spectrum is a memory. A memory that you can bring with you once you graduate from University...once you retire from cheerleading. Because I too will retire from cheerleading one day. And you can always look back at this memory telling yourself that i once had a team of people whom i can associate and identify myself with. And I was happy. I AM proud to be part of Spectrum.
Be it harsh tones, sadomasochistic notions or even the black face, it has never been my intention to make anybody unhappy. But as boss, there are times where it is necessary to make unpopular decisions/ comments for the good of the team and I apologise if i have offended any of you in this process.
So yeah. That's about it. About the black face? Ask regine la. She'll just tell you "ignore him la. His face naturally black one..."
