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

The last few days have been hell. Yes, hell.
Today, Friday, was our deadline for the InDesign project, where my group needed to reproduce an entire magazine. On Wednesday night, I had done quite a bit, and I thought I would continue at night and then send it. Then On Wednesday night, my internet was cut off, because my mom didn't pay the bills. Aiks. Okay, so I decided I'd go to school the next day, use the Wi-Fi and send it to Ryan, who'd compile it. No problem right?
At 3am, quite some time after I resumed my InDesign assignment, (since I had time) there was a blackout. What the hell! And I didn't manage to save my work. ZZZ! I had to redo all that again! Geez! I couldn't believe it. After the power was back on half an hour later, I continued my work till 7am, and I went to sleep.
Miki picked me up at 9am, and my sister tagged along 'cause she wanted to use the internet at my school. I spent the morning continuing the last few parts I didn't do, and that took quite a bit of time. Also "celebrated" Ruz's birthday by eating at Pasta de Gohan. The quantity is well... *sigh*. Went back to school and finished up the project, and I waited 2 hours to send it, but Ryan didn't come online, so I went to church for cellgroup meeting. Issey preached for the first time! Heh, about speaking in tongues, the sermon. After fellowshipping, I urgently needed to go back to church to send the assignment. Turns out that Ryan left his phone in the car, and didn't get my meesage that I was online -.-. Okay, after taking some time, it finally went through! Two bloody days just to send a file! And everything that could go wrong, did. Freak man. Zzz.
I went to school this morning at 11am, and we settled the remaining stuff for our group. Turns out we left quite a few details out. Aiks. Anyhoo, we also had our InDesign exam today, where we needed to recreate a pamphlet about tea. We only had 2 hours to reproduce 7 pages. It's bloody not enough time! I started out well, but around the middle it started bogging me down and in the end, I managed to complete all the pages, but I left out 3 parts, the section head, a table with figures and numbers, and a small icon. Zzz. Nevermind... at least its over, and I did satisfactory. To me at least -.-.
Neal and I joined Ruz, Kok Kin and Licia (happy birthday by the way) and some other girl in the arcade. My Time Crisis skills officially suck now. After an absence of God knows how long (and sucky guns, which adds to the factor why I don't play), I'm terrible! I was able to complete the game using only one continue (for all Time Crisis games, excluding 2), yet now I died in the 2nd stage for TC4. Crap man. Also there were Zi Yuan, Leno, Pauline, Chuan Ying and a bunch of other classmates who I still don't remember their names -.-. It's like it was a class gathering or something. Oh yes, I'm still undefeated in Para-para Paradise! I don't know why even though I don't know how to play, I still never lose, even to all the pros. Heh!
Today is also James birthday. Not the one in Singapore, but the cellgroup leader here in CHCKL. W32 (his cellgroup), W19 (my cellgroup) and a buncha other members from various cellgroups planned to go to his home and surprise him! W32 would spoil his mood by singing very pathetically for his birthday song, and ignore him throughout the meal. LOL! Freaking mean. So after a lot of phone calls to various people to track his position, he finally drove home... but not after spotting us on his porch! Aiks! He drove off instead of parking and wanted to counter-prank us by pretending to go to a friend's house. Lmao! In the end when he drove back to his house we just just ran to his car and sprayed and sang him happy birthday. Heh, had a few gifts given in his house plus the cake, and plenty of exchanging of words. Since I was following Ai Lee home, and she was tired, I needed to go off first. Oh well.
Best wishes, James! Hope we didn't spoil your mood and make you too emo before the actual surprise. LOL!
