•November 23, 2009 • 4 Comments

I had a petty fight session on gchat with my sista Alice Lee, a rhetoric major at Cal.. and yup i powned her..
I guess the reason why I’m not studying rhetoric is that obviously.. I don’t need to hahaha xP

Alice: i forgive you. God forgives you
i dont think we’re friends no mo

me: haha were we ever?

Alice: O___O

me: HAHAH

Alice: you are going down.

Alice: owowweewow

me: woweewow? isnt that what david kim says?

Alice: HOOOOOOOOOOO

Alice: you always gotta ask a question?

me: i ask with truth

Alice: are you that confused?

me: no alice

It’s hitting me..

I know my senior friends last year told me that even upon graduation, it hadn’t hit them that they were done with school.
For me, It’s hit me pretty early, perhaps a bit untimely.
This whole semester, the first semester of my last year, has had this sense of seriousness that is quite distinct from my previous 3 years.
Even during junior year, I had my 4th year as that safety net / buffer to the real world.
I guess always in the back of my mind, I thought… I’m still in college. I’m here to stay. and, thus, let my spirit be free.
But this year, upon a very rough start, I guess I’ve been a lot more alert of my spiritual condition, my future plans, and my priorities.
What do I love, and what sacrifices am I willing to make?

With my days numbered at Cal (literally.. commencement date 05/22/10),
there’s been an acute awareness and urgency about my relationships.
– relationships I wanted to pursue but never did
– mending broken ones from the past
– milking the time and freedom I have with my close buddies
I always banked on the future to do these things.
Been talking with a few close friends lately, and I realize I’m really good at starting relationships.. love RIDING that honeymoon phase with people.. but when it comes to long-term commitment, faithful, loyal relationships.. despite the sins I see in them.. despite the ugly side I show them.. heh I need a lot of work.

I still got the rest of this semester and next..
my schedule isn’t goin to be lax, so I think I gotta actually be violent in pursuing my commitment with people.
I’ve made the mistake in the past of having a leaving mentality. 

I’m still very much here.

God to Asa

“Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: The LORD is with you while you are with him.  If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.  For a long time Israel was without the true God, and without a teaching priest and without law, but when in their distress they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him, he was found by them. In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for great disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants of the lands.  They were broken in pieces.  Nation was crushed by nation and city by city, for God troubled them with every sort of distress.   But you, take courage!  Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”

2 Chronicles 15:2-7
