Birthday Notes

Last Friday was my birthday.

I don't really bother that much about birthdays.

Played around with my Facebook birthday date, just so to see what happened. True enough, all those "Happy Birthday"s didn't come in, until after a birthday card application spoiled the whole social experiment.

But I thought I'd do something I hadn't done for some time and went for a substantial morning run. Roughly 8 klicks.

Then it was off to school for lessons. Stayed in school till about 11p.m. plus doing CAT.

Saturday was record-setting. Started doing CAT slightly after 9a.m. Found myself still debugging stuff at about 1a.m. on a beautiful Sunday morning. Slept at about 2a.m. Then went to church, unexpectedly had to do the lesson (but yet, enjoyed it thoroughly because God provided the message), settled some NS Book stuff. Then I found out that a friend's grandma had died on my birthday. Went down to view the body, talk and all. Then, in a very tired state, got home and promptly resumed CAT at about 7p.m. Finished at about 11p.m.

Monday was the CAT presentation and I was so tired and full of headaches.

So I went home.

Today is a Tuesday and I am very busy with Pol Sc stuff.

Woke up by Accident

Well, it's 6:40a.m. as I type this. Worked till about 12:30a.m. on the CAT project this morning. Was supposed to sleep till about 8:30a.m. (y'know, sorta reward myself with good rest). But I have woken up by accident (needed to pee) and then decided to check my com for some file transfer stuff I'm doing (to pre-empt com crashing- don't want to lose all the work done this sem).

I've been very productive these past few days. Really thank God for that. Oh yeah, and went for Street E on Tuesday. I actually don't go for such stuff. It's like I feel that the best way is with people you already know- and somehow it feels more correct cuz you really have to be living out the right type of life... etc. But anyway, I'd been asking God what He wants of me in my time here. He didn't tell me to go for Street E but I just volunteered for it anyway. There's this thing that some other Crusaders have been talking about. They call it prophetic evangelism. Something like you pray for God to show you a picture of who you should be sharing with and then you write it down and then you go around to find that person... My skeptical mind is bashing up the idea but somehow it sounds interesting... Perhaps one day should try.

Okay since I'm up I suppose I'll do my morning stuff (sit on the throne, read papers etc. ). And then maybe some early QT. And after that maybe I'll get back into my bed. Got a lesson at 12p.m. but if the weather clears up, I might be able to fit in a run and some sort of a workout. (Very happy that I managed to start exercising a bit on Monday and Tuesday!)

Sick again...

I'm sick again. I do not like to be sick. I detest the fact that I cannot exercise. I do not like to see myself becoming fat all over again.

It is only when adversity or any ill-event occurs that we are filled with wonderment that we were not any more thankful in the past. In a way, it's good that I've been sick for about a week. There is so much to thank God for because I have had so many months without falling sick.

So today I was in church only for CM. Cuz it was my lesson and I didn't think it fair to get someone else to teach at the last minute. Lesson was okay lah... didn't go too well by my expectations though. Was supposed to go some place for a friend's birthday party but had to rest at home. Spent some time reading Pilgrim's Progress. The archaic English is at times tiresome. There are occasional gems for me. But I just want to finish what I began. Almost there.

Mid-terms are over and there are now a whole lot of projects to do. But then again... only four weeks before the end of the term. Well, I've got to find some internship too. But we'll see how I guess. Haven't been successful yet.

My dear NS Book Project is still in the works. It has been in the works for an extremely long time. It's like an airplane design that has already materialised, except that it's in the hangar awaiting its pilot testing. Now if we can just get it to take off for its pilot testing.

Hmph. I'm staring at the dumbells across from me in the living room. Miss them. Exercise, when I am sick, seems so pleasant and nice. It's kind of like my de-stress zone. I'm not super fit, but I love it. I'd like to play more soccer if I could too. But can't really find people I guess. Tertiary education already. No longer like primary or secondary school days when soccer buddies were just a phone call away.

Perhaps being sick forces me to learn to rest. I've watched more TV this week than any other week for a long time... Something I haven't done since perhaps JC or before. But of course it's not something I want to do long term. Not productive. Perhaps something like playing the guitar more would be a worthy alternative...

Okay. Back to school tomorrow.
