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

School's started. And the first day? Figures! Oh brother. Luckily it's Sio Yean as our lecturer, so at least I know him. But his standard's pretty high, so *sigh*.
The new school semester's been alright for the first week. I've only got three subjects, so I'm pretty free with respects to time. However, I'm not sure about the workload later on. Might be heavy, since there's a lack of subjects. And also, my class is getting smaller! I've got a few classmates who have failed certain subjects, so I won't be seeing them, or much less of them. Unfortunately, Neal and Ash were among them, so instantly with the exception of one subject with Neal, they're no longer my classmates. What the hell. Two of my closest friends in class and they're gone. Geez. There's no one I'm really close with in class left, with the exception of Zi Yuan, and a slowly starting friendship with Julina. Pretty neutral with everyone else. Aiks. Great way to start the school term, without your good friends in class.
I wonder how the usual gang will meet up now. Most of us only have 3 days to go to school, and not all our days overlap, so I think there'll be a lot less of seeing each other. I guess this does change things a lot, not meeting up almost daily. Of course, there's still time to go out, watch movies and stuff, but that's only with a few. For about half the group, it's usually pretty based in school. Hmmm...
My school days are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Thankfully there's no Monday blues anymore, nor are there stupid Saturday lessons. All of my "churchy" days are free. The school Christian fellowship, Faith Station is on Monday. Cellgroup is on Thursday. Services are on Saturday. I thought it was pretty good at first. Till I realized it doesn't. Since there's no school on Mondays, going to school on Mondays just purely for the Christian fellowship seems daunting for some reason. Especially when I'm the person who attends the most out of all the students. And for Thursdays, I need to go down just for cellgroup! I guess my commitment to my church is greater than a simple Christian fellowship, but going to school followed by cellgroup makes things more... I guess, convenient. The only thing I'm glad for is Saturdays. They're off. Geez, they're supposed to be off! Saturday is like my day off. Just me, just God, just friends, just church. No assignments, no nothing. School on Saturdays the last semester was hell, because it made me so tired for services, and sometimes I nearly (or did) doze off. It didn't help that typography 2 was the subject, and that itself would be torture, regardless of whatever day it was on.
So, a new year, and a new class in a way, 'cause my closer friends aren't in it. I guess I'll need to start mixing around with other people in class. The old gang is also going to be different, since we've got so few subjects now, and therefore less time to meet up. I'm pretty sure I'll be making new friends somewhere along the way. Let's see how it goes.
