There were a lot of activities, usually about our families. I personally didn't want to share anything since I know everything's okay with my family. I just felt bad with my other classmates because of what they shared during our open forum about their families. Pretty much shocked some of us since we all thought their lives are all almost perfect. Smiles can really hide a thousand tears. I also felt happy since they were brave enough to share those stories with us -- just their classmates. Made me realize that schoolmates can be really your second family.
Cameras were not allowed during our retreat session but we are really hard headed and wanted to take photos. So, while our other teacher-- Miss Larion, thinks we are already sleeping (since the lights at the hallway are already closed) we went to our adviser's room since he was alone in a scary scary room! There were rumors spreading around about the room number 9 (I remember it's room number 9, not that sure) the room was locked and nobody was allowed to go inside. Scary shit indeed. My roommates and some room crashers shared ghost stories which was the reason why I had a hard time sleeping. I have a pretty wild imagination. Thank god I brought my sleeping mask! Despite all these scary/fun moments with friends, I had so much fun reading retreat letters especially from my mother and my adviser. I will treasure those letters forever.
It was such a fun (and a bit scary) experience! Will treasure all the memories and especially the retreat letters I received :)
