When days go lazy

I shouldnt be here typing a blog entry on this dang keyboard, I should be at the temple now, bowing and chanting to the ancestral gods (Today marks the 49th death day of my cousin's ammah-- err, lola.). I shouldnt be here typing a blog entry on this dang keyboard,I should be studying for my Inersci exam. I shouldnt be here typing a blog entry on this dang keyboard,I should be doing our Introso Report. I shouldnt be here typing a blog entry on this dang keyboard,I should be researching about defense mechanisms for my Psyc class. Lastly, I shouldnt be here typing a blog entry on this dang keyboard,I should be at my bed, hugging a pillow, reading a book and slacking off. Whew. I have a lot of things to do but heck, this day is lazy. Blame the day, not the person.

Weather is gloomy, clouds not that bright, eye of heaven not in sight. Feeling odd, feeling blue. How I wish my responsibilities are few. My gosh, just thinking about the works I have to finish within this day makes me go poetic and insane.

Just to make myself feel a little bit better, I'd like to share to you my most memorable day this week, Wednesday March 1. It was Ash Wednesday. My first Ash Wednesday in the university, my first time to witness a live imposition of ashes to people, which marks the start of Lent. And I wont forget, my first time to be a lector!

I was only informed that I'll be the lector of the 3:40 mass the day before. I was panicking because I haven't experienced reading a gospel in the church, especially in a special eucharistic celebration like Ash Wednesday. I hope I did just fine. I ended up being a lector twice, because the lector for the 5:30 mass did not show up. Ganoon pala maging lector. I'm shivering and yet I have to take few glimpses on the myriad faces in front of me. Ms. Lou was one of the lay ministers, together with Sister Pinky and Tita Amy. She helped us picked up the song sheets after the mass. Her flowery scent really feels heaven!

It's hard to lose weight. Reality 101. I'm really controlling myself not to eat meat. It's terrible but I have to do it. My aunt would be getting me as her bridesmaid on May so I have to lose weight. Good thing it's Lent. Mom would usually serve fish and vegetables during this season.

Get back to work, you lazy day, or you'll finish nothing.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

*I didnt post anything about our current state of affairs because I guess you, fellow bloggers, are so fed up with the issue. Let us just pray that our country, and the rest, gets back in shape soon!
