National Service - I am crazy over it

I went to the library today, took a book from the shelf and start reading the book – The Army Daze. My teacher had been staring at me, most likely wondering why am I so interested in National Service.

I don’t know. I am somehow very excited to get enlisted to National Service. Ever since I got my first letter telling me I now no longer can run away from NS, I had been reading a lot of stuff related to NS. I had been talking to classmate about National Service, telling them some interesting stories I read online and heard from my friends. But none of them very interested. Most likely they might think cockroach is a crazy guy who love NS so much where else others hate it so much.

Don’t get me wrong. I am a guy who has been failing NAFA test in my secondary school life. If I enlist into NS, I might have problem doing even 1 pushup. I might have problem overcome the SOC, or maybe I can’t even pass my IPPT forever in my NS life. I might need to start training now to get myself a little fit. But at the end of the day, no words can describe the feeling I am having now regarding about National Service. I am just super duper excited.

Crazy as you might say. But I really looking forward to be get enlisted. Maybe just few more months, I might apply for early enlistment. Or maybe two to three years later when I finish my JC or Poly courses I will enter a new chapter of my life.

Last year, my mum had a conversation with my old neighbour who holding Singapore PR. They went to cancel their son’s PR because of the NS thing. My mum said this,

“National Service good what. Let them know how to become man.”

I don’t know how mum feels when she know I received my first National Service Letter. It makes me wonder, will my mum would let me go for my National Service with a peace of mind and not like others who cry or nag at their son when sending their son off. Maybe she dying to send me off but for sure – I will miss my mum and my home.

National Service, I wonder why I am crazy over you…
