Discovery Batch 73
Listening to: Third Eye Blind ~ Blinded

Since I'm not as diligent as Racine, Camilla and Karina in updating my blog, I'm only writing this now. :P

Discov was way better than what I expected it to be. When we got to the retreat house across the parking lot to the school, we were the only ones there, besides Marc and Miggy, two facilitators. Of course, there was Sister Anna, but who wants to hear about her? XD

Anyway, people slowly started to show up.. Someone said it was going to start at 4:30, which it never did. :P Camilla, Racine and I bummed about in our room for nearly 3 hours. I honestly thought that the person who said it would start at 4:30 should be kicked in the groin.

Shortly after that it started. 11 girls, 10 boys. 2 girls were from St. Scho. We had to introduce ourselves, and we made drawings of what we wanted to be in the future. I'm proud of my super neon green stick man! :P Then we had to search the retreat house for 5 qualities we thought we needed to survive on Survivor. Then we had to choose which were important to us, and we would be left with one. I was left with confidence. It's in my wallet now. :P

Second day. The bell from hell. XD We woke up with a horrible ringing in our ears, and when we poked our heads out of our door, there was Miggy, ringing a huge bell which we christened Sandara. It was that bad. Too bad for us, that bell was used as alarm clock and as a pre-activity thingie. The first game of the day involved us joining hands and making a circle. Then we had a hula hoop which we had to move thru around the cirle. And we had to do it in under a minute! Evil Edu and the stopwatch on his phone. XD After that game, we made shirts from paper... I forgot to take mine home. :( After that, we played 'Trip to the Moon'. I didn't get the pattern until the 3rd round. XD Then we had 'The Perfect Model'. I felt sorry for Elise. XD

Then there was North South. I don't know exactly how long it took us to get it done. >:P It was torture! But we got it done eventually. After that was the Amazing Race. We were a group of 5; Carlo, Elise, Danica, Jenny and I. We had to do 4 challenges. The first we had was Target Shooting. I was disappointed that I missed. =/ Second we had to 'tie' ourselves together. We had to string ourselves to one another by sticking yarn thru your right sleeve, down to your left pant hole, then to the right sleeve of the next person. And I was wearing my tight capris. So I had to stick my hand down my capris infront of everyone. XD Haaaaaaaay. Then we had to dance. Miggy wondered out loud how I got the string down my capris. Pfffft. Last, we had to walk with wooden planks. We were noisy. As in, really noisy. XP

And my fav activity, Plastic Water War! Imagine having a water ballgot itoon fight, while blindfolded. XD I got hit by Kriz right as we started. >:P Cai got hosed, and Racine was pailed by her own Commander. XD Too bad it ended so fast. :(

Then we had the Trust Lift. I was near the front, so when I saw Racine lie down on the bed, I got a little freaked out. XD When it was my turn, it was a bit scared. Yish. But it went fine. I was a bit shaky afterwards tho. XD Then we sat in the dark and talked about our parents. Kari fell asleep! :P After the session, we were supposed to go to room 9, where Io was SURE there was a ghost. Well, there's been stories about room 9 since we were in... 6th grade, I think. O_o But it was locked, so we went to the entrance instead. The Courtyard door was unlocked, so we went out. Then Sister Anna came out, and we had to hide in the courtyard! XD It was so funny... then when she left, we ran back inside.

Third day. We started the Mass at 8 or so. Luckily we were able to eat breakfast before. We were messing around with the remote of the electric fans, then the power went out. =/ I was First Reader. Fr. Louie was our celebrant! :P He said I looked like Patricia Javier. O_O

We had games after the mass. Bahay Baboy Bagyo! :P I was supposed to have a consequence, along with Jay-R, Racine and Melai, but everyone forgot about it. :P Hehe, lucky. Then we had the Carwash. Basically we went one on one with each other. It was fun. I saw something I wasn't supposed to see. David needs to pull up his pants. XD

Anyhoo. We bummed around the conference room afterwards. Analyzed puzzles, watched a music video thing that made my skin have goosebumps, and planned to have a small concert. Racine wanted to have a Men's Bikini Carwash instead. XD Not so bad. Then we bummed around in the courtyard while waiting for the final activity. We each had to kneel before a armless figure of Christ and pray, and afterwards drink a bit of wine. Again, I couldn't help but feel a bit wierd. I felt like I was in a cult of some sort. O_o But I prayed and drank the wine. I think I drank a bit too much. Then a slide show was shown. The only pic there of me was with Camilla, and she was lying in my lap. :P

We got pics after. I had mine signed by everyone. Except for Danica and Jenny, because they left before I had the chance. >_< I soooo didn't want it to end. It was like a huge slumber party. XD I'm glad I went.

I went home, ate Pizza Hut, and slept.

And until now, sinasabaw ako! XD
