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

I had quite a lot of response from my previous post. Just in case you don't know, I'm actually very updated in world affairs, and I'm very vocal (to the people who bother) about wars and events. I see things from both sides and usually, there's a "bad" guy and "good" guy, though of course, its not that clear. Things aren't black and white. They're more grey when it comes to these events. Anyhoo, like I said, if you have a different opinion, do know why you support those opinions.
Anyway, enough of that! Thursday Miki drove me to school, but she got lost on the way. Heck, she thought that railings meant railroad tracks. What the hell? Class started at 9 and she arrived at 8:50. Brilliance. At night I had my cellgroup meeting, and after our meal, Ai Lee drove me back home. Had a very long and interesting talk with her. Heh. Friday I was late for school, but we learned the details of our final project for digital design. Recreate a magazine using Adobe InDesign. Hm?
Saturday was possibly the first time I didn't attend service while I was in KL 'cause I had a 2-day job. The education fair, organized by the Star newspaper (which is state-run... just read their articles about Israel, totally one-sided). Along with Ruz, and 2 other guys, we were to promote The One Academy to students, give brochures and a card calendar with some students artwork, which was a really neat idea by the school. It was a little dull, just standing and giving out the stuff (the calendars were a HUGE hit), but quite satisfying when people seemed genuinely curious. Of course, assisting the pretty girls was a great bonus! (LOL).
Sunday was pretty much the same, although Ivan joined in. I attended service earlier, but left early so I wouldn't be too late arriving for the job. The previous day we had run out of English brochures and had to give out Chinese ones for a while, until they told us not to. It was freaking embarassing giving the Chinese brochures to Indians and Malays! We were told they had restocked with more quantities this time, but I doubt it. Either that, or we had overwhelming response. Anyhoo, after running out of English brochures faster than the previous day, and eventually giving out all the calendars we had left, we had nothing left to do. I didn't mind =p.
Since we had free time, Ruz, Ivan and I walked around and ended up at YTL's hotel management school. It's very classy and to promote the school they were making drinks. Ruz, Ivan and I had a Romance, Mojita and Sun Up respectively, and they're all damn good. Sun Up was a mixture of milk and orange juice, which surprisingly tastes very, very good. We partially made the drinks ourselves, and did that shaking thing that bartenders do. Had a good chat with a few of the students before I gave them my "souveneir", a bitten can. LOL. Got a hell lot of responses from them though.
We also became morons for a while and walked to Lim Kok Wing, which had a very business/creative stall. For those who don't know, Lim Kok Wing is another university well versed in the arts, and has now expanded to business. Besides The One Academy, Lim Kok Wing is pretty much THE school when it comes to arts. So in a way there's an informal "rivalry" between the two schools. They have their own campus though, which is fully black (yay!), but I've heard about many things about the school which kinda make it lose out to The One Academy. No offence of course. Their business courses are top class though. But there's one thing both sides don't have. A good school name! I mean, Lim Kok Wing may have founded his own school, but it's not exactly the nicest sounding name. You've got body parts mentioned in every word. Lim (limb), Kok (cock... I swear I'm getting someone offended), and Wing (wing, duh). And The One Academy. The ONE. Reminds me of Neo. It's better than "Tatsun Hoi's College of Communication Design". But The One Academy just sounds a bit... empty, the name. I mean the student's artwork is world-class, but it's just the name problem!
Zzz. I'm just dragging on. Today we had perspective studies again. 2 point perspective this time, unlike last week's 1 point perspective. I did not too bad this time round too. Also, I bumped into Zhi Ling 3 times today! Once in the morning, once in school, and the final time when I was going back home. Lmao.
Oh yes, I also had a really disturbing nightmare last night. It was weird though, because I had trouble sleeping. I dropped to bed around 9pm and slept until 4am. I tried to sleep again and managed to around 5 plus. Then I woke up at 8, but slept soon after and woke up at 10am. During those periods when I was sleeping, the nightmare continued and continued. I'll blog it another day. I'm lazy now -.-.
