Fresh from retreat (Nov. 17-18)




Day 1 (Nov. 17)

I went to school at 7am but before that it was really a rocky road. The vehicle went flat tire and I thought I'm going to be late for 7am on that day but luckily I'm not late. The jeep for Alang-Alang (the venue) was already there but we (some of us) rode in Sister Imaya's van. We ate breakfast first then the recollection began. We also had confession and mass in the afternoon. I was so uncomfortable during that time because I have my period and it's the second day. All I wish for is to finish the retreat and go home. In the evening I wasn't able to sleep well. By the way, my room mate is Bambi.

Day 2 (Nov. 18)

We are expected to be up by 6am to get ready for 6:30 for the morning prayer. First we had an exercise and I forgot the name of that exercise. It was a nature exercise kinda like tae bo. It was my first time to be able to do that and it felt good. The most magical is when I felt the positive energy within me. We also had sharing and reflection. I also have a new cup. We bless that cup and I will be using it. I will post the photo soon. We went home at 4pm.
