Take a deep breath

and plunge right in.

I spent most of the week doing nothing. Totally unproductive. And it was such a free week too. Or would have been. Everthing's ok now though, so that's good.

Valentine's Day tomorrow. The global conspiracy to make all singles feel inadequate and out of place. Nobody would guess it was originally a day celebrating the martyrdom of Saint Valentine. The wonders of commercialism and business sense never cease.

No matter. Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don't let the bastards get you down. Courtesy of Margaret Atwood, A Handmaid's Tale. Cool book, but definitely disturbing. Like all books about dystopias. Except this one seems more real, somehow. I bought it today at about 3pm, and I finished reading it before dinner. about page turner.

Anyways. Not in the mood for writing poems today. 've got a boey essay due tomorrow, and readings to prepare for econs S. AND i havn't finished with mp10's Friendship Day presents. Yes, i've been suckered.

Would you believe, they postponed Ash Wednesday to Friday, because it fell on the first day of CNY. So begins Lent. A period of 40 days of prayer, penance and charity. And a chance for me to grow closer to Him again.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not die but have eternal life."
He died for me, and I'm brooding about a lonely Valentine's Day. If that doesn't make for a paradigm shift, i don't know what does. Still. Falling asleep feeling lonely isn't the nicest feeling, is it?
I'm trying to figure out why all my blogger instructions are in Chinese. Hrm. Ah well. I should get down to the essay. Happy Valentine's Day to you lucky people in mutual love, and to the rest of us - well, what doesnt kill us makes us stronger, no? Keep your hands off sharp objects, and necks of irritating show-offing couples. Tuesday's only a day away. *grinz*
