Note to self

Some failure costs more than others. Never give up. Keep on trying.
If sometimes you have to let a dream die, let that dream die. Don’t let that kill you.
If one door closes, another door opens.
You must believe that it wasn’t meant to be.
If it’s meant to be, it’s going to happen.
If not, there is something better around the corner.
Choose to believe that you will never be shortchanged when you give up a dream, you will find something better.

Today, today.

Today, I turned a year older. But I’m not entirely sure if I’m wiser. 

But different from previous birthdays, I didn’t feel that today was any special. Does this mean I’m growing up, though? Getting older doesn’t mean anything nor is it a cause for celebration?

Thesis Fears

I recently heard Phillip Phillip’s Gone, Gone, Gone on the radio. I was switching radio stations this morning, on the drive to school, to find something to listen to. I watched bits of American Idol when he was on it. But I couldn’t recognize the voice on the radio. The song was… well, touching. His voice sounded so folksy that I thought it was one of those hipster bands that I like listening to. Imagine my surprise when google told me it was Phillip Phillips.
So I’ve been sitting here in the coffee shop at school for an hour now. Almost two. I’m supposed to be writing my thesis. But admittedly, I’m stalling. I have no idea what to write. I don’t know how to tackle this in a way that it won’t get eaten up when the time comes to defend it. See, I believe in my topic. I believe in what I want to write. Heck, my thesis adviser even believes in this stuff. Thing is, I just don’t know what to put down in words.

Cambodia 2013

So I did go to Cambodia for a couple of days. I went to Siem Reap to go see the famous Angkor temples. The structures just lord over you. We had a guide with us. He explained most of the carvings/statues/etc. But mostly, the temples were built to serve as the capital for the Khmer civilization. Kings built them as memorials for their ancestors. They built them and dedicated them to their Hindu gods and Buddha. Funny, while I was walking inside the temples, I was thinking - wow, people built this back in the 800s-1000s as a testament to their gods/religion. Mega giant structures for religion. And you know, I’m not Hindu nor a Buddhist. But just thinking that people, way way way way back in the day with their crude equipment, built such towering structures, you can’t miss God.To me, He was there. I know the Angkor temples are not meant for the Christian God, but man, if you weren’t somehow moved by seeing these temples, I dunno what you are.

Of forgiveness and colloquy

I’ve been listening to the same song for the past thirty minutes. I have a habit of doing this, especially when I’m thinking about something I need to put down in words. This time, it’s Gavin DeGraw’s Not Over You.
