Hey, life's not always going to go your way
So live it to the fullest is what I say.
Comic relief is here for you to savor
And may the odds be ever in your favor.
Something good today was that it was Easter! And more importantly, the day that Jesus was resurrected. This is seriously one of my favorite days of the year for several reasons. Of course, the main one is because this is one of those times where I am reminded of the whole basis of our faith: Jesus’ resurrection. Without that, everything we believe in is worthless. But it did happen and because of that we are no longer dead in sin but alive in Christ. It’s something we hear all the time but I’ve really been trying to understand that to the point where I’m experiencing our life in Christ rather than just knowing the facts. It’s hard but reminding myself that I’m alive each day because He rose from the dead might be a good way to start. Idk, His resurrection is sometimes such a hard thing to express because of how magnificent it was and is.
The other main reason is that we have baptism at church every Easter and most of the time there are a good amount of people I know getting baptized. It’s something I really do look forward to each year because seeing them all make public to the church that they are devoted to Christ is just so awesome. I wasn’t always like this but I’m beginning to genuinely feel overflowing joy and happiness when I see those people (and especially my friends) get baptized. I can’t describe it hahaha
Something good today was going out to dinner with some friends at Red Hot and Blue. It was pretty expensive but tasted good so it was nice haha. We had a pretty intense talk about the reformed tradition and even though we didn’t talk enough to get everything answered (probably won’t ever anyway) it was still a really good talk. I have a lot to think about and praying too. I’m not really sure what to think but I just hope that I’ll be open to these things and not stay stubborn in my own ignorance and pride if this is something that needs to be considered more deeply.

9) Do you always smile for pictures?
- I mean, I think so. Unless its supposed to be silly or a team picture of some sort, because there’s some weird thing where guys all just give a straight face, which is pretty funny actually.
23) What do you drink with dinner?
- mostly water. Unless its curry. For some reason, I always drink milk with curry, at least when I’m at home.
35) Best thing to eat for breakfast?
- Taiwanese breakfasts are the best. Hands down. Not even debatable. At least for me. Can’t say I’ve tried many other cuisines for breakfast, but I find it hard to believe anything could be better. My fave is usually those egg scallion pancakes, soy milk, and something i don’t know how to say in english that sounds like sao bing yo tiao hahaha

- 2. English and mandarin. Forgot all spanish from high school and I can really only understand a bit of taiwanese, definitely can’t speak it well though

Something good today was getting to hangout and spend time with a lot of friends today. Like I said, I’m usually always alone when I eat lunch on tuesdays and wednesdays but today I actually at with a full table of friends haha. I met up with a friend who was visiting CP on her spring break and we went over to get some lunch, where I found a bunch of people getting food too. We ate with them and then just chilled until I had class. Went to IV later that day and this probably gets really old saying this every week, but I truly and genuinely love IV because of the amazing people there
Something good today was getting stir-fry for lunch with some friends. I usually have to eat stir-fry alone on tuesdays and thursdays but today was a bit different and some people decided to eat with me this time. Sigh, I’m just so tired and exhausted right now. Physically but even more mentally. You know how they say some old people burn out or something along those lines? I feel like I’m already starting to burn out and I can’t help feeling like all my work is hopeless because I’m just too busy and crammed for time to do anything decently. I just want this semester to be over…..
