Whee. Wanted to blog since Thurs when I stated on my fb/tumblr/twitter that I'd be gone for a week, but I haven't been able to. Also, I fell sick = =
Had dinner at Soup Restaurant yesterday with the family after my mum/dad/bro got their new phones (mine's cheaper when you get it online so I'm getting it on Sunday whee) and came home to sleeeeeeep
But not before getting an itouch first HEEHEE. Uh Apple had a offer and I saved $27.10 on my itouch LOLOL. 27 dollars still a lot of money okay! I can get three cups of starbucks with it heh.
Okay about the fasting thing.
On Thursday during Crusade life meeting(henceforth known as LM) we had a crusade staff talk about one of the spiritual disciplines, which obviously is fasting. Then at the end they said we were all going to fast for a week. At first I didn't want to, but then it seemed as if everyone was going to do it, so I didn't say anything. So yes, maybe a little peer pressure at first. Elliot, who was doing the announcement, said we could choose what kind of fast we were going to do. Like a Daniel fast, where he had a vegetarian diet, or mabe we could fast from facebook etc.
So me, Yinshuang, Pearl and Wendy, decided to fast from the following: facebook, tumblr and twitter, and formspring for wendy.
Then I suggested being like Yinshuang for a week. She became a pescetarian(I think that's how you're supposed to spell it) last year during the holidays. Which means she doesn't eat meat(ceot for fish/seafood). Anyway we all agreed~
I drank pork based soup yesterday though ): Cos it was a set deal thing for 4 people and I didn't want to be a spoilsport. I gave my parents my meat though.
I think this is a really good experience! I haven't actually been reading the Bible more, but that's because on Thurs I came home so late and already not feeling so good and Friday I was sick.
I'll definitely read the Bible and read the book I have today though, after I get back from the group assignment meeting thinggg. All these assignments are hindering the recovery process, but nevermind, cos God will heal meeeeeeeeee!
So far I haven't died yet from internet withdrawal. In fact, I don't even feel it. I'm really glad for this because after lesson implementation yesterday, I managed to do my share of the report in like, less than half an hour? It was only 295 words la. If we didn't decide to fast from social networking sites, me and Yinshuang would've wasted probably 1 hour on them.
I think I might extend my facebook fast, until I finish the book I have. It's like a daily devotional thing and takes 60 days to finish, so I'm already at day 2 (today day 3) so I'll be off facebook for another 52 days after the official end of the fast next Thursday. So... about 7 weeks? 1 and a half monthsssssss woah.
Gotta ask Sam Lim how long his was haha.
eeeek gotta go change and leave the house already. Goodbye ya'll
