This boy, with the tendency to procrastinate and who seldom approached me for any help (yeah right, like i could help in chem, physics, trigo or algebra :P), except to borrow my laptop, managed to snag 3 medals***. It was almost unbelievable. Haha! Unbelievable only because he didn't allow me to pry into his academic affairs and if not for the report card grades, I was sort of clueless.
Sure, he would tell me things about extracurricular activities. But with regard to homework, he would just answer my questions in monosyllables. Hmm... No... Yes... Done... These were pretty much what I remember him saying.
So last Saturday, although we knew in advance he was getting medals, donning them on him was pretty surreal. He probably didn't need my constant nagging after all. He has his medals to prove that he was in charge.
Well done, Kyle! On to college!
