Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.

And as I am going to progress on to studying for my MFE test tomorrow after finishing my AW draft (Hope that not much changes will be needed), I shall post something that I’ve reflected today.

Today was a good day. It started out with having dionne coming all the way to SMU to study with me, and it ended with me having fun with the CF-ers as we were celebrating the belated mid autumn festival.

It was a nice feeling to see dionne again. It’s quite sad that we only see each other once in a while. It’s like JC all over again. It would be nice if we were in the same school, but we don’t have the chance to. But it was good, meeting and talking and catching up, telling her about things that matter to me, things that happened and many other random things. It was a great time laughing together. Laughter. You can have it everyday, but somehow only certain kind of laughter lasts, and only some kind of laughter will make you happy. I miss being in the same school as my best friends :(

I was frustrated and annoyed the entire afternoon after Dionne left. Math is a pain in the ass at times, and I get pissed off over stupid things. But as I was thinking of how God brings me joy in the smallest or biggest ways ever, I am really thankful. Sometimes I can’t appreciate things because I’m too busy focusing on the things that make me angry. But I thank God, for the wonderful friends that He has placed around me. And I think that is something really important to me, because they make such a big part of school life, and even life. I’m thankful for friends who proclaim their love for me all the time (LOL SOUNDS WEIRD), and I’m thankful for the friends who are there for me even though they are busy with their things, and I’m thankful for my spiritual family, my brothers and sisters in Christ. :)

So thank God. I’ll never forget to see the joys you bring me amidst the annoying stressful school life.

Don’t care about money don’t care about fame
Not chasing some great accolade
Oh I want more

I’ve never been much for flattery
So don’t waste that kind of talk on me
Oh I want more

More than this whole world can offer
More than all that time destroys
And all I’ve wanted here can’t satisfy my wanting
'Cause I was made made for more

Well I’ve climbed as high as status goes
But I’ve got social vertigo
Oh I want more

Never thought my gifts would seal my worth

I never wanted fans just wanted church
Oh I want more

More than this whole world can offer
More than all that time destroys
And all I’ve wanted here can’t satisfy my wanting
'Cause I was made made for more

And after all I wasn’t made for here
But I give myself to all you gave

Well I want to see my kids grow old
And always have your hand to hold
Oh I was made made for more
Made for more
Made for more

Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.

As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt. I thank God I didn’t get what I thought that I deserved.
Sometimes life leads you down a different road, when you’re holding on to someone that you gotta let go.
Someday you’ll see the reason why.
Sometimes, yeah, sometimes, there’s good in goodbye
Carrie Underwood- Good in Goodbye

This song happened to play while my music was on shuffle. Nice song~

No relationship is going to be perfect, close to perfect or even in the ballpark. And that’s okay. Look at Brad and Jen. Sometimes perfect doesn’t turn out so great. Don’t strive for perfect. Strive for what feels right.

You don’t have to have everything figured out at once. Relationships are tricky and take a lot of figuring out, especially in that crucial stage where you are trying to figure out if you’re even in a relationship. However, in the rush to label everything and skip to the part where you’re all settled and have everything set, you squander a lot of the things that make relationships so exciting. Sure, we talk about the first kiss, but what about the time before the first kiss, when you are waiting to be kissed, just hoping that they will finally just lean into you? So much of a relationship is like that, that sensual waiting, and that’s what makes them both so frustrating and wonderful. I know we all want to skip to the ending — the parts where you host game nights together and do the Sunday crossword in bed — but don’t forget to just enjoy the ride, even if that means you aren’t “Facebook official” yet.

Though the pressure’s hard to take, it’s the only way I can escape.
It seems a heavy choice to make, but now I am under.

And it’s breaking over me,a thousand miles down to the sea bed, found the place to rest my head.

But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.

You can go through life and make new friends every year - every month practically - but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years. Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel.
