Today was our recollection. And I’m going to Singapore tomorrow until Monday — So yes, expect a photobomb in my blog by Monday.
I woke up 5am and was supposed to be in our school’s chapel by 6:15, and we did arrive by 6:15 — but the bus departed by 7am and I was seated by my first bud in the section in June, it was by friends so our ‘group’ stayed together near the back (yes, where the noisy students sit — and we were part of them) By 8 am, after passing junk food, cookies and chocolates everywhere, I got about 10 varieties of unhealthy edibles. After a while, we arrived the same retreat house we were in last year, but we’re not going to stay overnight. We met our (said to be boring-but-not-that-much really) speaker, and we started off with a long prayer of praise to the Lord, but we mostly watched videos and after that we were told to go out and walk around and meditate on the question: ‘Who is Jesus to you?’ And while we were having a walk, I had the thought, that the walk was scheduled to ease up the food so we could eat for lunch time, because after our minimal exploring, we had chicken, soup, rice, veggies with the college retreat-ers and a 1st year class in our school. Ate snacks (spaghetti and bread sticks) after that quick.
We went back and watched another video related to Jesus’ salvation and discussed a few things about Him, our speaker asked us about the question and it went on as a sharing — I shared about the sibling thing (just backread). After discussing more problems and how everyday lives can change with your point of view on Jesus. After all those sobs, and an early time to be dismissed, The Adventure Gang (2 boys 4 girls) went around every possible place the area could have shown, and the laughs were indefinitely countless, and I loved those moments, even if it came to rough cases because one of us got a scrape because of the stairs, by the way, there’s a lot of insects. Hence, the laughter because of all of our cowardliness.
We ended the adventure, because there was going to be the mass, and I’m the Prayers of the Faithful leader, and I did 97% of our president’s speech to the class, haha, but seriously. After the pictures you see there, you’d probably guess where I am and how our class acts. On the way home, soundtrip and awesome sing-alongs were proposed and arriving, while waiting, I was with my 1st year friends (some people in that section that came to the recollection too), and our director in the play asked me for commuting money, eventually 50php came and I ended up talking to my bes’ ex’s bestfriend (goodluck analyzing). Anyways, I feel so sad since the teacher who guides the batch is apparently disappointed because he said we had like a party in the bus, which we were supposedly reflecting.
