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

So, a proper update at last. Lol. Since I've got way too much to cover in the last few weeks, I thought I should blog some more recent events first.
So last Saturday, I woke up at noon to get ready to meet a potential client. As I'm resigning from Creative Thumbprint at the end of the month, I thought I'd seek out a few jobs now. Slowly though... I'm not really in a rush and all. I want to take a short rest as well. My mom thinks otherwise, and is constantly nagging me to hurry up and find another job, telling me it was a big mistake to quit my current job. I have very good reasons though, and I'll mention them later.
I met the client, Jason Tan, at The Curve, and we had a small chat, with two of his partners there as well. Apparently they want some sort of freelance/contractual basis thing for designers. Like within a period of two weeks, or a month, they'll give me some jobs, and I give them what I do, and they pay me. After that if they want to continue hiring me we'll do it again for another two weeks or a month. Pretty tempting. Especially when the work can be done from home, and I only need to meet them twice a week, just to get jobs, and updates. I'll need to convince them first however, with a small job they'll be giving me.
I was extremely tired 'cause the previous night was Halloween Night at TOA, and I went back to support Sacwrath, Justin's band, which I haven't blogged about in here yet 'cause I'm so lagging on updates. Lol. Headbanged, chilled, celebrated David's birthday and went for a drinking session at Justin's place where I ended up falling asleep. Plus I was told that my hands were in prayer as I slept the entire time! In addition to tiredness (and a stuff neck), I was really hungry too so I went to Ikea and got the SWEDISH MEATBALLS. One of the ultimate foods to ever exist! While lining up, I bumped into Julie (aka Jules), who I've been getting to know really well and close, in recent months. We hugged, caught up and had a bit of smalltalk before ordering and going our separate ways.
Went to Subang to meet up with my band members. And because of more lack of updates, Ryan and Hadi have both left the band, and we've recruited Harish, a very passionate guitarist. Still missing a drummer though. did some songwriting and went to eat and chat and get to know Harish better.
I was bloody bored and it's very rare I have a Saturday night free, doing nothing at all. So I decided to go to Sunway and use the Unifi there at one of the restaurants, and lo, I saw Nikke's pink car. I stopped by and saw Nikke and Kevyn at Home Chef Recipe. My initial plan was to chat with them and wait till they went off to use the internet, but eventually I joined them for KFC and later went to chill at Ming Tien, talking and sharing stories and jokes all the way from 9pm to 3am. Geez! And it was just the three of us. Redzuan and Masayo did drive past us while we were at Ming Tien but they didn't notice us, and they eventually drove to KFC (the irony).
I was getting tired so we said our "Nights" and I went home to sleep. I was supposed to wake up for church tne next day, but I ended up waking up at 8pm. This marks the third time I've overslept for church this year, and its getting to be quite an issue. A very big annoyance too 'cause its not intentional, but I just can't wake up with my alarm quite often. Even with sufficient rest. Very awkward. I'm still used to attending Saturday services... *sigh*.
Anyway, like I said, I was resigning from work right? After five months? So fast? Yeah. Read my next post for all the reasons.
