Whoo, I’m getting faster at weighing rats! Today had to be a record. I woke up later than usual but still managed to start the experiment on time. This is not exactly something I’d imagine myself to be proud of…
The Pain Jesus Suffered When He Died for Me
Recently one of my friends shared this with me. It was so hard continuing to read sentences after sentences. As I read, I kept wanting the point I just read to be the last point. The Anatomical And Physiological Details Of Death By Crucifixion: By Dr. C. Truman Davis A Physician Analyzes the Crucifixion. From New Wine Magazine, April 1982. Originally published in Arizona Medicine, March 1965,...
The rats I work with are getting ridiculously big. They are SO FAT. I can’t pick them up anymore :( It’s sad to see them being dropped/thrown into the weighing cage when I can’t hold them firmly. I also think white colored rats are cuter than black (even though I don’t think rats are cute). Why do some people think black ones are cuter??
My eyes are pink and they are like pandas.
I browsed through my messages on my phone and there are five texts in a row that I replied to the other person “It’s up to you.” Clearly I have issues deciding. But I think I just don’t want to decide.
Dreams are not fun
Lately, I have not been sleeping well at all. Normally, I have dreams once in awhile but this past week, I think I’ve had one every night. Last night’s dream was so random: I dreamed that I got tons of email from two grad students I’m working for this semester in research lab. The emails consists of them asking me if they can add more hours to my schedule or instructions for...
So far this semester,
The greatest joy that I’ve probably experienced is studying the bible with Emily. Last night, I ate with her at Julie’s and it was her first time. It was nice hearing her talk a lot and seeing that she is starting to become comfortable sharing her highs and lows of life. I pray that I will not just hear the things she goes through, but really walk with her during the rest of the time...
My first week of handling rats…I survived.
Works of God
The month of January has not gone by, and here I am, failing my New Year’s resolution. My consistency of journaling is dying slowly as well. Yet, God is still so good to me. His grace is definitely plentiful. This past Sunday night was my small group leaders’ meeting and during the sharings of our highs and lows, the immediate response for my low was “small group!” This semester the girls do not...
My cousin has blossomed.
Him: How are the parties like at UT?
Me: I would not know.
Him: What do you do on weekends then?
Me: YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO BAD.
Him: Hang out with friends?
Me: Do you not hang out with friends?
Him: I HAVE FRIENDS TOO YOU KNOW.
Me: SO POPULAR.
Him: DAMN STRAIGHT
Last night, I really really liked a message I heard from Holly Lin. The way she delivered the gospel made me reflect on how I approached the gospel to others. I’m definitely not confident telling others about the good news. The way Holly spoke last night, I could tell she believes the gospel and truly loves it. The Parable of the Ten Minas (Luke 19) “Then he said to those standing by,...
I spent too much time on this post...whoo 2013!
1) I like sitting down with my mom and talking to her for hours, like 2-3 hours, after dinner. Of course, there are moments that we disagree on things but I don’t mind because even though I am stubborn (she is too), she respects my opinions and doesn’t force hers on mine or try to argue to the point that I don’t want to talk to her. After seeing her patience and tolerance, I...
My first day of winter break
I woke up at 8:30am (what? shouldn’t i be waking up at 12 or something?) I made a Pinterest account. Normally I don’t go on sites like 9gag, Pinterest, etc. because I think it would be a waste of my time if I just sat and browsed through things. 50% of my time would be gone and it would only add onto my hermit life. My mom bought a Nikon 5100 during Cyber Monday. A lot of time spent...
Gummy Bears are my best friends
I went through a bag of gummy bears (yay secret santa!) within an hour while studying for Diff Eq. The chewiness of bears helps relieve my frustration. I need to stop.
THE PROF WALKING THROUGH THE EXAM HALL
youmightbeanengineeringstudentif: Eldridge. Today. 317 Test.
Just.Kate.Davis.: LJ's Last Sermon →
justkatedavis: The last two days have been life-altering for many people. Our dear brother, pastor, son and friend who was zealous in his love for the Lord went home to be with his Maker. LJ was a man who wore many hats. I was blessed to get to know LJ through my husband Bryan who lived with him for a…
Sigh, why Diff Eq?
DIFF EQ test on Monday T.T I don’t know what’s going on in that class. Most unprepared I’ve felt in a long time.
A glimpse of harvest
Overall, today was a really good day. I think I can finally have a glimpse of what harvest looks like when I serve the Lord :) Initially, I really really did not want to go to hoedown. I don’t know why, but I never really liked to admit to people that I enjoy dancing. Maybe because I don’t want people to expect me to come every week to learn/dance and make it a commitment? This really...
:( at first, but then there were FRIENDS… ...
Mid-autumn festival is one of my favorite times of the year. Family dinners, moon cakes, full moon, lots of grandparent’s home-cooked dishes, playing with cousins, and not wanting to leave grandparent’s house because of food coma. Favorite memories ever.
最近我很烦啊…很多事情不顺利, 好久没想了这么多事. 学业和事业上，我好迷雾. 最近，我做事的时候，我心里不开心. 好快就很累. 神啊，求你带领我去走你安排条路给我. 我现在很需要你的力量！
The day that precipitates makes me happy (today)
Chatting with Merlinnn…things that satisfies us so easily.
One girl showed up! YAY.
Today was the “informal hangout” with my small group girls. Only one girl showed up. Sigh. It was REALLY disheartening at first but after seeing, speaking, and getting to know her, I thought, “Thank God for at least sending me one girl.” Beforehand, I had put a lot of thought into how to write the email to the girls…like what words should I choose, or I wonder if this...
With God, all things are possible
As summer break comes to an end and school is around the corner, I already feel sort of homesick. So far, everyone I’ve talked to, they are SUPER excited to go back to university and fall back into the college social life…but why am I not? I notice that I don’t fit into the UT social life well at all. Everyone seems to be stoked about going back, but I dread it. After knowing...
My brother is not a Spiderman
I wish someone (my brother) was brave enough to kill a spider at home for me :( Me: KEVVVIIIINNNN! Can you come and kill a spider for me? My BRAVE brother: Uhm, I think you know the answer to that already. Me: Please?!?!?! Him: What if I get bitten and become spiderman? (We watched Spiderman 2 hrs ago). Me: I think that’s actually a good thing! Him: How big is it? Me: Um,...
Prayer & privilege
Recently, it struck me that praying for others is a privilege…and also a responsibility. Most of the time when my friends are going through rough times, it’s easy for me to say, “Hey, I’m praying for you” or “You’ll be in my prayers”, but then, shouldn’t I do more than that? As an encouragement, maybe I can send them a written prayer. I...
Grace is a beautiful thing
I’ve been really lazy about writing lately because it’s summer time. It’s not necessarily the laziness, but more of not wanting to sit down and write after reflecting my thoughts. This summer hasn’t been one of those times where I get to lounge around the living room and watch TV or just wake up insanely late. There’s summer school at 7:30, tutoring right after I get...
