everyday is a sunday evening

you know that feeling you get on a sunday? where you just had the whole day to yourself and it's been great, and then you remember you have to go to school the next day, and it ruins the rest of the night. i have to go home tomorrow, and so i've got that feeling. it's like sunday night. - peyton, one tree hill

sundays... i'm not very fond of them. as a kid, i thought my birthday wouldn't ever fall on a sunday. i used to think that since misa de gallo starts on my birthday, it can't be a sunday because otherwise, there'd be 2 different mass celebrations. and... it just can't. sunday is when you cram your homework and not for celebrating your single most-awaited day of the year. and luckily for me, my birthday had always eluded sundays (as far as i can remember). until i turned 17. i realized now the reason i got "lucky" is because of leap years. so yay for leap years! :D (btw, i've just learned recently that i was in fact born on a sunday! some paradox. :D)

so anyway, when i heard peyton said this, i was in awe - because somebody has just described so vividly the exact feeling i get on a sunday evening. actually, that feeling had been out of my system for quite some time already. i guess i've learned to cherish sundays more, and all the other days that i get a break from school. :D but! i can just preempt that this somber-sunday-night-feeling would resurface and i would be one sad kid again when sunday comes. that's because i'd be living away from home for a while, to lock myself in some place where there's no tv and internet. board exam's only a month away, and i just can't afford to get distracted, especially with the pace i'm studying. so please pray for me, that i don't get homesick and flee back to my mom. =S and that we pass the board too. :D

*sigh* can't wait to get this over with. i'd really love to go to the beach or hike or something once this is through. and maybe my sundays would be okay again.

but until then, i would have to remind myself that "for as long as we are wayfarers, it is precisely in suffering that our happiness lies." -st. josemaria escriva (the way: 217)
