YESS PILLOW YESSS

Reaching Adulthood Problems: My First Sad Farewell

It’s the weirdest feeling to have a friend move away.

And I’m not talking about moving away to a different county, or city.
I mean a different state.
Across the country.

This morning was just like any other: I got up (lazily) and realizing how late it was, went to get ready for the day. And while I was brushing my teeth—it dawned on me that today one of my long-time friends was going to move away, and that meant Facebook messaging in different time zones, no more spontaneous sleepovers at her house… no more random calls alerting me of a hangout that was about to take place. So many memories that she’s taking away with her.

It was a strange bittersweet feeling…
mostly bitter.

I wish I had spent the previous days with better judgement, milked up every last second with her before she left for New Jersey.

I mean— California and New Jersey?? That’s at least two thousand miles away, (2,424.01 to be exact). I’m rarely going to see her, it’s not even guaranteed she’ll come back for holidays.

When mapped it makes a huge teary frowny-face. image
That’s just how I feel right now.

So everyone that reads this, please value every moment with your friends. Be present with them, and realize that as you grow up you will be saying more goodbyes sooner than you realize.

I’m missing you already Shirley.

Reinventing the bike experience

We really like this Kickstarter project put out by Helios (A startup made up of UC Merced alums).  These are “smart handlebars” that can be put on your bike and offer a range of features.  The lights on each side can act as turning signals along with providing visibility to motorists.  One of the features that really stands out is the integrated Bluetooth and GPS.  So if your bike is stolen you can track the location on your smart phone and provide that info to police.

Please help me to have joy in only you.

Please help me to have joy in only you.

God & Studying

Why have I never seen it before, that when I study I’m seeing more of who God is?

In Chemistry, I’m seeing the complexity and all-knowing side of God through his creations and their foundations— and then how everything works, all with an intentional design.

In Chinese, I can see the intricacy of reading, writing, and communication that God created just for one group of people. There are about 6800 languages out there.

How great is our God?

There’s more classes to take, and in them so many more facets of God to see and experience.

How great is our God.

unworthy

And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet…

- Luke 15:21-22

Unworthy but beloved and blessed.
