The week has been great for me despite the fever and the headache last Monday and Tuesday. It was great because I was able to spend time with friends again. Being with them is like a breathe of fresh air and I am looking forward to seeing some of them today and on Sunday.
The other night, one troubled SFC member (one of my batchmates) went to our house at 9PM to tell about problems and all that. It was quite difficult to talk to him because we have a different mindset - for him everything is negative, and I am having a hard time convincing him otherwise. Personally, I don't want to mingle with his family problems, but I was happy that I was able to talk to him in a diplomatic way. I guess even if I easily get irritated, something in me is still diplomatic in a way. I ran across the lad yesterday and he seemed happy. Now, I am starting to doubt whether everything was just an act. I sure hope not. I am actually feeling a little guilty (and I ask God for forgiveness because of this) because he lied to me once - I just realized that he lied to me when a co-member told about a similar scenario with a different story - and now I seem to have closed my understanding on him. If there's one thing about this young man is that he is troubled, and I do hope that his household leader would be able to change his outlook even just a little.
Anyway, another thing to be thankful about was that my sister's doing okay despite the difficulties in her location. She's having her internship at a passenger ship, and I am thankful that despite travelling in the middle of the sea everyday, she didn't get sick or whatsoever. She said that she has had some bruises from bumps, but she's fine. I hope she can carry it through 'til the end. Every time I get to "talk" to her through text messages, I always tell her that she has to be thankful that she's island hopping and seeing places while working.
Yesterday, I took an IQ test - just for fun, and the result said I got 122 IQ and is a "bright mastermind." I am very thankful that despite being out of school for many years, my mind is still healthy. The test was quite difficult - especially the math ones, that's why I was surprised to see the result. Thank God for that!
My cat Paborito got some wounds in the neck and chest area. I don't know how he got it, but when I checked it this morning, I noticed that it's getting dry now. I am thinking of confining the cat inside the house for the meantime, his wounds were big, and I don't want to be alarmed again.
