Last day of diving

I got picked up 15mins later than the appointed time today, which was better than yesterday. Half of the guys in the van were as same as yesterday, then we got a few new people. They've stuffed up with one guy's accommodation address, not sure the guy changed his accommodation later or the office's mistake. They were told to turn around to pick him up in the new address anyway. There was a bit frustration and we were late due to the traffic jam. Finally we arrived at the pier and met with others on the boat.
Yesterday I had bitten my regulator too hard, I found my gums were swollen. We were told how to get regulator back to the mouth if it's been accidentally pushed away, but I reckoned I was just too nervous. I took a tablet for seasick and had a couple of pineapple pieces.
Today, I got better control of my buoyancy most of time. I was using my BCD inflating and deflating under the sea to adjust my height. The instructor told me I shouldn't use that as my lung, I should just breath properly to control my buoyancy. I didn't catch what he said when we went up to the surface after the second dive, I was too busy to catch my breath. Lucky he said that again later on. Also I didn't kick correctly that's why I kept going up straight. He's mocking me like riding a bicycle, where I should've kept my legs straight.
We didn't see any shark, but we saw a big turtle, eel, sea snake and different colourful fishes underneath. My diving buddy saw white lobsters also. He got his water proof camera and took lots of pictures under the sea. Time went away so fast, soon we finished 3 dives and back to the boat. Later he announced the mark of our exam and signed our log books. I didn't know if I passed. He didn't say anything about it, just asked us to check and confirm our home address, so I guess I passed.
After around an hour, we're approaching the pier to finish the day. It's already getting dark, my whole diving course was finished. I felt a bit sad 3 days diving was over. I had picture taken with my instructor and said goodbye to each other. It's been a great time to dive with them and I was certainly going to miss them deeply.
