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

Ah, the weekends... finally. A break, sort of.
On Thursday after the whole Essenism gang chilling out I went back to the school library to chat and sleep. After being awoken by a phone call, I realized Shaun was still drawing his Lady Gaga and there were almost no people left inside. Had a "bonding time" for around half an hour, catching up on life, and the people around us and friends. A significant portion was also talking about relationships. Pretty interesting stuff, heh... good times.
I went off for cellgroup after that. W19 was combining with W31 and W49, so it was huge. Joel preached for the first half and Natalie preached for the second half. Not bad... a good mesage about prayer.
Today we had typography again. I slept a little over one hour because when I reached home, I ended up having quite a lot of chats through Facebook and MSN about the Cindy incident. Also had a very deep chat with Zi Yuan, and by the time it was finished, it was nearing 4am. Spent 15 minutes doing my typography work and read a bit of New Moon (of the Twilight saga) before heading to sleep.
And surprisingly, Lily accepted one of my ideas very well, even though I had done that particular one in less than 2 minutes. The ones I spent quite a portion of time were not good. Gee -.-. Yeah. Because of a group assignment we needed to do for creative thinking, Neal, Tommy and I ended up joining 7 girls (our classmates) for lunch. And they can't believe I like strawberry! Lmao? It's not my fault they're nice, sweet and... pink right? Zzz.
I accompanied Zi Yuan back to her home 'cause she needed to help her housemate get inside the house, even though she lives there. I don't know how you can leave the house and lock it, but get locked outside when you come back? Lol... anyhoo, we went back to school together to settle our group assignment in a few minutes, and Neal and I presented. Job well done. Whew.
I went to the library to sleep after that, and woke up for service 2 hours later. For the weekend, its Pastor Andrew Gray from a Christian City Church branch church. Well... he talks like a machine gun! Very simple, yet very powerful message about God's fullness in us. He was a very passionate speaker with a few good jokes peppered in at times. Very enjoyable.
Also, of note was the presence of God during the praise and worship. It was astounding today, much more so than usual. It was just so overwhelming that during the worship session, I was weeping the whole time. The second worship song was Hosanna, and it has one of the most beautiful bridges in any Christian song I know. While singing the bridge, I was practically crying! My tears poured out in such force equivalent to me crying like a baby when I was a kid. I kept having to wipe away the tears, which didn't do anything at all, except wet my hands. But I felt so comforted after that. I guess I was affected a lot more than I thought, with her.
Looking forward to tomorrow's service. The drive back with Ai Lee also was full of an interesting topic. Aye... also, good times.
Heal my heart and make it clean Open up my eyes to the things unseen Show me how to love like You, have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks Yours Everything I am for Your kingdom's cause As I walk from earth into eternity
