Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Alright everyone... sorry for such a long absence of posts. Something happened, so yeah. I took a hiatus for a while...
Just a quick rundown of the last few events.
Anyhoo, two weeks ago, on the weekend we had the Uth-Nited basketball and dodgeball. I'll skip the details, but let's just say my team lost because of Nicholas and Wei Yu. Freaks. Aye, at least we never outright lost a match. We won one, and drew two, and lost through free throws. I missed them on both occasions. AYE. Reminds me of last year's Emerge basketball, where my shot would decide the winner to go to the finals. I missed. CHC even had to immortalize it on the website with a picture.
Here you go...
Can't believe they captured the biggest and most important shot of the match. And I had to miss that shot. Zzz. (The guy in black on the wall is James =p)
Had service with Pastor Ulf Ekman after that.
Then last Thursday there was a movie night for the cellgroup! We watched The Indescribable Universe, plus The Game Plan. Hmmm, frankly, I was just amazed at what was shown during the first show. I think I'll share that another day though.
Friday was our Uth-Nited talentime, where Joshua and I didn't make it to the finals. Ah well, I don't blame anyone. Competition was tough anyway. Vanessa's voice is insane!
I went to Clarke Quay to meet up with Nicholas, Wei Yu and Wilson to celebrate Nicholas' birthday at the Ministry of Sound. That means clubbing! I was quite late, 'cause of the talentime earlier... so they led the way and I was granted entrance. They took away my chain though. Safety reasons I think. Inside we played the King and I, and made each other do really stupid stuff. To add a twist, we also added in "truth", where the chosen card had to reveal anything we asked. And boy, there were some things I'd rather not have found out. The most extreme dare was to take a picture with a girl, and I ended up doing that -.-. At least I got a picture! With a girl named June. I also managed to get a girl's number (of my own accord)... one of the pretty girl's serving vodka shots. Too bad I didn't take a picture with her, 'cause she looked better than June. Her name's Lebell by the way. There was also another pretty girl serving vodka shots, and I ended up doing push-ups in front of her. Aye, what an embarassment! Didn't get her name or number though, even though she looked the best. Hmmm. Nevermind. After our antics and drinking, we left the techno room and went into the RnB room, where it was chock full of people. We danced there for half an hour, although awkwardly, 'cause I wasn't drunk yet and the rest had like no experience -.-. So yeah. On a side note, I'll never look at Yue Rong and Sin Yi the same way again.
Saturday was service with Pastor Phil Pringle, where he painted during service and gave a really short but touching sermon/story of how it related to us. Brilliance really.
I went back home in JB and slept longer than I had in weeks, and Sunday my dad took me out for a meal before driving me back to the checkpoint.
Today I overslept. Motorola phones are a little unique. I set 5 separate alarms so that I wouldn't oversleep. However I forgot to enable them all -.-. Meaning I set the times but didn't turn on any alarms! AHHH, so I overslept! I'm staying in Singapore now and I already overslept on my first day of school living here. Geez.
Things didn't go better later on either. There was supposedly a helpers meeting at Orchard. Since I overslept I took my own sweet time getting ready at noon. I took a bus to Ngee Ann Polytechnic to meet up with my friend, but he ditched me by going off for a haircut. Fine... nevermind. I messaged nearly all of my NP friends to see who was free and no one replied me. Geez. Then I asked Isabel about the helpers meeting later on and I was told it was cancelled the previous night! AYE. No one informed me anything again and I had to ask to find out for myself. Freak.
I spent a few hours in NP just walking around, and everyone kept looking at me. I don't know whether it was the chains, my hair or jacket that got their attention. It just made me feel so weird, that everyone was checking me out (not in "that" sense). Luckily Gary replied my message (hours later) and I ate dinner with him, chatting on a lot of cellgroup issues. *Whew*... who knew there were so many hidden agendas -.-.
Took a few bus rides back to my rented room in Katong, where I'm finally blogging after a long absence, aye! Sorry about that.
Happy birthday Isabel. And Ashley. And Cedric Koh.
