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

Five days of spirituality. Wow. The last week, I had 5 days worth of Christian stuff going on. Monday was Faith station, the usual Christian fellowship at school, then followed by cellgroup meeting. Then on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, it was attending all the services with Pastor Andrew Gray. In the cellgroup, only two people attended every single service. On Sunday, for service 4, I actually slept for around a few seconds, probably because of the toll. I had listened attentively for service 3 but I think I was drained by service 4.
My lack of sleep was caused by a particularly horrible nightmare before I woke up; where a bunch of friends were tied up and bleeding to death through practically every orifice they had. Once they were exanguinated (drained of blood, for those who still don't know what my blog title means), I woke up, jerking awake and kicking. I didn't want to sleep again because I have a tendency to continue dreams when I awake from one. I did though, and I can't quite remember the second part, but I remember lots of death from the people bleeding. Yeah... when I woke up from the second part, I was dead, dead tired despite not sleeping that late. If you'd wanna know who were the victims, they're um... the regular readers of my blog (you know who you are) plus a few others in church. Yeah. Sorry.
Even though I slept for a while during the final service, I still enjoyed his message. The part that probably struck me most was him talking about "balancing equations". Jesus is perfect, righteous and without sin. Humans are imperfect, sinful creatures. So in effect, its technically impossible for Jesus to become sin, and for humans to become righteousness. Yet, through His death on the cross, two impossibilities were fulfilled. While dying, Jesus became sin, and because of that, we are God's righteousness. Yeah, Christians know Jesus died for their sins and all, but having it said this way was very, very impactful. Great messages from Andrew Gray, definitely.
Today we had figures again. Managed to draw the simplified figures decently in class... aye. Whew. After class I slept in the library for a while before going to the new student lounge in block G. Shared a few jokes, and chatted with the AD085-1 people. Then I began getting started on a guy who pissed me off a while back. For moral class, we're split into groups and need to visit a charity organization and do something for them, be it spending time with the kids, old folks, or whatever. While deciding what to pick, one guy said that he would pick whatever Edmund picked. In case you don't know, Edmund is probably the biggest and best God-like artist in the entire school, and I mince no words in that. Anyhoo, I got annoyed, since I was tallying the votes for the different places. How can he have no opinion whatsoever? Since that day, till now, I still have trouble remembering his name. What Hian?
Anyway, I told some of the people in the student lounge about it, and I said that I don't respect him at all. Then Jun Yuen's like "You don't respect him? Well, he's right here" I turned to the only guy who I didn't notice before and I was like... oh, whoops. Yeah, he's THAT unnoticeable. He had heard me bitching about him having no opinion, and after I questioned him on why, he's like "anything this, anything that". Geez... even after hearing my displeasure he's still like that. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the guy. I barely even know him and judging his character based on one incident is very petty. I just have no respect whatsoever, and his response only continued to cement it. Also, while there, I teased Chin Yau about being called Cin Cau, a mistake one of our lecturer's used to continue, despite knowing his real name. Seems like he got pissed off too. Two birds, two stones. I pissed off two people in the span of an hour. Not my intention, honestly.
Faith Station was good today. The game was quite fun and the topics and sharing we did were also quite deep, and we talked a lot about other people's problems. After a while we split into groups to share a bit about our week and all. I closed in prayer for our group, and we went to fellowship at Ming Tien. Heh... it was easily the most enjoyable fellowship we had there. I shared a lot of stories about going to Singapore daily, the robbery attempts, the checkpoint issues and all. Great humour and conversation from everyone. Nice!
On a final note... I didn't have my special lunch today. No details there -.-.
I've got my computer graphics production procedures (CGPP) to do now. Aye.
