Shit lah haven’t even done my retreat planning yet… Damn, I must be the worst procasinator around… Tommorow is going to be a long day… Morning go novena, 1pm go drum lessons at PS, 4pm got for evaluation meeting at Queen of Peace… 7 pm go for dinner with Joshua’s relatives…. Tomorrow’s evaluation meeting is going to be damn long, and probably filled with verbal assaults…Things are not going well with the curia officers and us…Anyway, I went to legion meeting today and then stayed till 3 to do the archiving with Eugene…Then went to cut hair….Now my hair is very short. Went to SVDP for CL at 8pm.. Hmm, today I found out that one of our people Lindsley is migrating to Auckland.. So we had a small party for her, some drinks and a cake. Never really had a chance to know her well. Pity pity. Ah well, there’s always MSN. I wonder what the time difference with Singapore and Auckland..Hmm. I’m going to bloody sleep now! It’s so damn late…

Came back from my CL camp yesterday. It started on Wednesday. And I actually learnt something. Food was good. Too many things to write. MSN me if you really want to know.
On Good Friday, our passion play for the little punks went well. Some of them thought it was a tad too violent, as some of them were on the verge of tears. Guess our acting was good. On Holy Saturday I went to meet Eugene, Jasmine and Patrick to discuss about our presidium. After that I went to HMV. I bought the Guns and Talks OST as well as this album of guitar songs called The Alternative Album. At night I went for Easter vigil at St Vincent’s. Came back at midnight. Today I went to get back my CD burner from Eugene. Then I went to town to go out with Yishun, Xieqiang, Hansheng and Mr Goy. We went to Nooch. Then we went to Cafe Cartel at city hall to eat ice cream. The tab was on Mr Goy. Then we went to search for Xieqiang’s and Yishun’s schoolbag. We went to many shops, and only found the perfect bag after a loooong time.. Haiz, stupid nanyang poly still haven’t send me my enrolement package… Sianz. By the way, Happy Easter, God Bless. War in the pocket wishes all readers a joyous Easter season.
Wah. I went for Lenten Vigil at SVDP on Friday. I came to church at 5 PM to set up the backdrop. I had to tie the strings to keep the backdrop up. And the stupid windows at the balcony served only to get in my way.
Then we had rehearsals all the way till ten thirty. We started the passion play at twelve. I acted as the High Priest and Chief Priest. I had a black costume and a gold cape. It was quite confusing on when to put on my gold cape. So I remembered it as ‘Don’t Put one, Put on, Don’t Put on, Put On, Don’t put on’. I think that did the trick. I figured I did quite an okay job. After the play, we had stations of the cross. I acted as Simon.
After stations we went back to the room to stone. Then exco decided to have their meeting. I got chased out. As usual. So Julius asked me to the main chuch where they were having Taize. It’s quite cool afterall, just like how Matthew described it. After that they had washing of feet. We had our chairman Iggy to wash our feet. I hope he didn’t find my feet too smelly, considered I was walking around the church barefoot during the acts. The next thing was reflection. Then they had this video of this guy. When the guy on the screen acts like Jesus, He seems to be Jesus himself. When he acts as Peter, or whatever, he seems to be them. He does this for 3 hours without taking a drink. He’s good. The show was very shocking. It certainly got me thinking. We had breakfast at 5 am. I just drank milo. Then rosary followed by mass was at 6.30. Actually I didn’t really feel that drained. I feel like I slept my normal hours. During the reflection and video, I really thought for a long time. I was thinking whether Jesus could have escaped carrying his cross, which let me to think, whether I can escape carrying my cross. My cross for now happens to be trying to run Maris Stella High’s very ramshackle Legion of Mary. With Dominic in the army now, It’s time for me to take over. But I’ve been doing a lot even when he was still around. He did a lot too. We all did a lot. I’m tired. I wonder how is his army life. He went in on Friday. Without him around I feel kind of lost. And I have no idea how to recruit people to join us. Heck, I don’t even know why we are here in the first place. We are supposed to evangelise, spread the word of God. But there isn’t much we can do in Maris Stella. At least not that I know of. But I was thinking, even though we have so much trouble after so many years, we haven’t needn’t to shut down. I think God is really helping us. Why else can we survive for so long? I guess the best thing to do now is to pray more and to leave it to God. In the meantime we’ll do what we can. I think the best part of the vigil was near the end of Mass. Felix was grinning happily to me, so i smiled back at him. Despite being deprived of sleep, he still cheerful. This is something I can learn from. In any case I went back at 745, took a shower, ate some more food and medicine, then slept till 130 pm.
