Chasing butterflies in a grassy meadow is my idea of a late summer afternoon.
Sadly, I had not the time to update yesterday’s happy event. So I will now give an account of yesterday’s happenings:
It was a tiring but successful day today.
Dress rehearsal for the school play was good today; a teensy bit rough on the edges for the crew because we’re short of hands, but went quite well overall. It’s time for bed and I intend to sleep until 9 tomorrow morning; I don’t quite care anymore whether or not I finish all my homework on time. Good day and good night.
Today wasn’t my day.
Had to bring my sleepover stuff with me to the cafe because no one could take me home, and I felt really uncomfortable because people were looking at me as if they thought I was running away from home or something.
Drama practice was absolutely horrifying. The crew and I completely screwed up Act I, which I guess isn’t a big surprise since we’ve only gone over it twice. I felt absolutely horrible though, because I was missing cues and tripping over my long dress. They also told me that I have to cut my wrist bands. MY TREASURED WRIST BANDS.
Came home hungry only to find that after dinner and piano I had to clean the bathroom. So I did, and I actually felt, for the first time, like an old woman.
After cleaning the bathroom it was time for me to study for my English vocabulary quiz tomorrow that my teacher had told us to get at least a B or above on otherwise he wouldn’t be happy. So I studied, but I’m not even the tiniest bit confident in my abilities that I’ll get a B or above on tomorrow’s quiz.
I feel so good after letting all that out. Well, it is time for bed (at least for me). I’m off to a bad start again; going to sleep late and all. So, wishing you sweet dreams. Goodnight and farewell.
I love imagining someone’s facial expression when I tell them that I learned about binturongs in English class.
Today was another beautiful day.
The day started out gray, but became gloriously sunny late afternoon. My lunch was enjoyed out in the sun with my friend as we chatted about the little things in life that made us brim with happiness or sadness.
Now, to the point. I learned today that giving oneself the tiniest push with God-given courage can take you a long way. I had the longest conversation ever with one of my favorites. Even the smallest thing this person does fills me to the brim with stupid, but wondrous, childish glee. One can probably guess who this person is: my beloved (or in simple terms, my crush).
Indeed, today was another capital day with a lesson learned anew.
When I look back, there are always times that I wish I could never leave the moment, times when I regretted something, and times when something amazing happened and I wished it would happen again..and again..and again.
Today was a day that combined all three: I wished that I could never leave that moment, regretted that it ended so quickly, and hoped that it would happen many more times in the future.
Wishing you an Easter day as happy and beautiful as the one I experienced today. (:
This afternoon strangely felt like the middle of summer vacation.
Even if there is 0.000001% of getting something done, God can still make that 0.000001% chance happen.
My class and I finished translating this in class with our teacher in World History class today. It made us feel like “super geniuses” indeed, as my teacher said.
Our (rough) translation:
I believe in one God,
Maker of heaven and earth,
All things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
Only begotten song of God,
From the Father, born before all worlds.
God of gods, Light of lights, True God of true gods,
Begotten; not made; of the same substance as the Father:
For whom all things were made.
Who for us humans and for our salvation
descended from the heavens/Heaven.
And incarnated from the Holy Spirit
From the virgin Mary and made a man.
Crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
Suffered and was buried,
And resurrected on the third day, according to the Scriptures,
And ascended in heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father.
And will come again with glory,
to judge the living and the dead,
Whose reign will never end.
And in the Holy Spirit, Lord and giver of life:
Who from the Father and the Son, proceeds.
Whom with the Father and Son simultaneously adored and glorified:
Who spoke through the prophets.
And one holy, catholic, and apostolic church.
Confess one baptism in remission for sins.
And I expect the resurrection of the dead,
and life of the world to come. Amen.
Indeed, I feel like a super genius..
The strange thing is, sometimes those in love are given the courage to do outrageous things that we would never do unless we were actually in love. Now that I think about what I did yesterday, I wish I’d disappear from this world. That he’d never see what I sent him. That he would not find out what I told him. But then again, I guess this is love.
Yay! I’ll be taking a free self-study online Computer Science 101 class from Stanford! I’m so excited! Never mind my free time, this is more interesting. (x But first, it’s time to do homework! (:
I had a breakthrough last night.
I was wondering about why I’m so addicted to love-related things, and I realized that it was because I’ve always yearned for love and a good relationship with my dad. That’s something I feel like I’ve never had, because he’s either always working or watching movies or basketball.
But the Lord really showed that he was my Daddy yesterday! I cried during the night, but it felt so good to let it all out and to really know that God is my heavenly Dad! He even answered my prayers yesterday! I was praying that I would get a seat next to my crush for the new Geometry seating, and I did! I was amazed yet happy at the same time. God is so good to me!
I feel like the Lord did this to make up for the terrible fight I had with my dad recently, and to show that I have him as a heavenly daddy even if I I don’t feel like my biological dad is really my dad.
God is such a good daddy! It’s such a wonderful feeling to know that He is there for me, and that He’s perfect and that His love will always overfill my heart that is aching for love. God is good! That’s all I can say right now. I can’t wait for more future encounters with Him! <3
Introducing my new favorite song of the month! <3 This is the original, but the other version is just as beautiful.
