25 hours of my life went *poof*!

I just wasted 25 hours of my life at a confirmation retreat. I really really didn't want to go. My parents were all like "Its not gonna be that bad, you're not going to talk about Jesus the entire time"... But we did and it was awful. "They asked questions such as "How do plan to further deepen your faith in your adulthood?" or "How did Jesus help you on your journey?" (Journey was our fabulous little theme). I felt like standing up and saying "I am not a crazy spiritual nut, I am not on any journey, currently I am falling down a deep, dark hole, and I am only here because I am sick of arguing with my ridiculous mother!" then grabbing my shit and walking out like the coolest mother fucker that ever lived. But no I was stuck in a smelly church with 24 eighth graders that would give anything to get the hell out of there, 1 very confused 8th graders, and a very religious, singing boy, he had the voice of a nine year old girl and screamed like one too. One of 24 would not stop looking at me, I just wanted to put my hood on and disapper but I had that creep looking at me. The counclers/staff were far to happy to be there.
One of my good friends is very gifted... shes has to be psychic she said "A bet we're going to take some nature walks and pray to a tree." We took a nature walk and tried to find crosses in the environment (I am in Michigan, I was cold, tired, and sore, we had to sleep and sit on the floor the whole time) then we went into the church and had reflection time, then we had to write our gifts on paper leaves and put them on leaf-less tree in hopes that our gifts would bring it life...
Not to mention my best friend who isn't getting confirmed got to go to mall mania an over night shopping trip where you spend the night in the mall and get free facials, manicures, and pedicures :) fucking great.
So my weekend was awful! How was yours?
