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

Aye... sleeping 17 hours feels so damn good. Especially when you haven't slept well for a week.
Seriously. I was dead, dead, dead exhausted last night. It's been one hell of a week too, anyway.
But, it's been fun and great. The only drawback has been the lack of sleep due to all the activities.
Firstly, the classes on Monday and Tuesday. I stayed over at Fei Yan's house on Tuesday night, so that we could do up the marketing and corporate proposals and we spent quite a lot of time at night to do that. Then on Wednesday I had a 3 hour graduation campaign committee meeting. After that I rested in the library for a while before having a symposium at my house! I realize that a lot of my recent posts are about drinking -.-, but yeah, its been some of the fun highlights that I remember when I blog. So yeah, a symposium. This time, there were quite a few noticeable differences. There were 4 new people invited by Azlan, who we met the previous week (because of another drinking session, lol). They were Jason, Ashok, Max (from Germany) and Masayo (half Japanese). And they're all metalheads! All heavy metal people. Dang! After getting to know each other, and buying all the alcohol minutes before they were closing, we went off to my home! From the usual gang was Justin, Redzuan, Jonas, Andrew, Aaron and Miki. Had rounds of I Have Never, Ping Pang Wah, and The King and I. I Have Never was a great way to know one another better (and we learned way too much), plus King and I provided plenty of laughters. For the first time in my "King and I life", I avoided all the worst dares, and only had minor stuff. Heh.
Everyone else left pretty early at 5am, leaving only Justin, Redzuan, Jonas and Masayo to chill in my house. After more drinks and plenty of laughs and chatting, we finally got some rest at 8am. I had to wake up at 11am to go for a group meeting... that began at 11am -.-. So on Federal highway, on the way back to Sunway, Justin was driving and speeding. In front of us, a car stopped quite suddenly, and Justin stopped just in time, with a forceful, hard brake. The car behind us wasn't quite so lucky. The car behind us rammed into us, which in turn led us to ramming the car in front. Great. Threesome anyone? All of us except Masayo got off to take a look. Justin was pissed off really badly because this was like another accident in his long list of accidents, and his parents weren't going to be happy. The guy in front was actually pissed off, but once he saw 4 big people in black who looked fierce, he immediately softened and said it was okay, once he realized what had happened. But I think our looks intimidated him a bit! Haha! As for the person behind, it was a middle aged woman who seemed totally apologetic, yet when she saw Justin hit his car in frustration, she jumped back into her car. LMAO. The rest of us had to persuade her to slowly come out and talk, saying it was okay, that Justin wasn't going to hurt her and stuff. Hahaha... geez. The benefits of looking fierce -.-. Justin let her off though, and she continually apologized and said thank you profusely. So no one paid for the damages, despite the car in front getting quite damaged, and the lady's car getting dented in the front. Justin's suffered minor damage, but it caused his hazard lights to light up at random times.
I was late of course, but I reached college and did some work with the rest before taking a break and going for Redzuan's drama. Well, I have to say that most of the other groups were pretty bad, but Redzuan's was HILARIOUS. Not impressive technically, and a bit hard to hear at parts, but it was just funny. I went back for the group work and after a while of more work, I promptly fell asleep. Lmao. Sorry guys, I was really dead exhausted. Then the next day I had to go early to help the group do up the bottle mockup, and after a critique that ended very well for us (Gabriel was pissed off at the rest of the class), I proceeded to have lunch and hang out with Miki, Ruz, Henry, CJ, Thaiianna, Redzuan, Sareena, and later on, Justin and Masayo and the rest for dinner. We chilled out a while before I went for cellgroup meeting, and had a good time playing I Have Never with the cellgroup. Lmao, no drinks involved here. It was just drawing on ourselves if we lost.
I stayed up till 6am to do as much of Leon's work as I could, and woke up at 7am so that I could open the photography studio for a photoshoot I was having with Symposium and Essenism. I had long suggested a photoshoot for these two groups of friends, and finally, this weekend was it. Headed to school, and continued my work of Leon's, before going to the studio with Ruz and Ivan, and then I headed off to go for my critique with Leon. Luckily, he was in a good mood, so it was quite pleasant. There was lots of things he told me to change, but more or less, he was alright with my work. I went back to the studio, and waited for all the others (every single person was late). So, we had the photoshoot! Since everyone was late, we had to rush the shoot, and didn't manage to take as much shots as we could've. However, the full shots of Essenism were taken, finally giving an update to our pictures from years ago (and finally getting rid of Leonard from our pictures) and Symposium also had our first full group shot ever, with everyone present, and the addition of Masayo.
We had lunch, and chilled out at Redzuan's place while I rested for a while, before going to church service later on, where the topic was the "Importance of Fellowship", which was superbly awesome and very in season, especially after a photoshoot with close friends. Pastor Kevin spoke on the importance of meeting up and socializing with our friends, as well as for the right reasons, and with mutual benefits, as we are all social creatures. Very useful sermon. Afterward, I had to pass on the fellowship with my cellgroup (yes, I know, the irony), because for this week only, my band had jamming on Saturday night. We jammed and tried getting familiar with the songs we planned to have for the upcoming gig, as well as touching up our newest song, which is still in progress. Afterward, I went to chill out again with Justin, Redzuan, Jonas, Andrew and Masayo for a while, before I headed back home at 2am.
This post was in a way, an explanation of why I was SO DAMN TIRED. Haha... the exhaustion of all these events continuously day after day kept adding up. But I enjoyed every minute of it, and it was a brilliant week. Now... to sleep.
