so um, when can i actually start having some fun &...
sigh…the things i’ve had to give up for IB. this better be worth it.
i wish i could drop french.
rant of the day: french class. i really like the french language + culture but i HATE my class. i believe that teachers are supposed to encourage students to want to learn, participate, and at least try in the class. my teacher doesn’t do any of that. -_- i want to cry when it’s time for french class…i count down the minutes til it’s over. i try to participate and answer...
it’s always better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.– fortune cookie! yum.
i feel like i'm walking on egg shells when i'm...
i know you’re really tired & stressed out so i just don’t want to do or say anything that will make you mad. :/ you’re constantly on my mind. i miss you. i hope this semester goes by quickly & i hope we can talk more next semester…but i can already feel the distance between us. i miss our long talks, the randomness, the arguments because you always denied...
i just want to be in california.
or new york. someone put me in a big city, pleaseee. this small town will be the death of me. i’ve had this desire to live in the city since forever. i just want to get out of here. it’s been my motivation to do well in school. but who knows what will happen…only God does, and if he wants me to go, i’ll go. if he wants me to stay…i’m going to pray really hard...
those random texts
that show me you actually think about me from time to time.
i wish i could just make art all day long.
drawing, painting, sculpting, photographing, just creating. too bad i have to do stupid school work.
"i'm waiting, waiting for nothing. you're leaving,...
my current facebook status. i introduced you to this song. remember when you used to text me parts of it and i’d reply the rest? well, i posted it for you. i hope you see it & i hope you realize that i’m talking about you. (buuttt you probably won’t) i miss you. a lot.
oh inspiration, don't be a stranger.
i hate trying to force out ideas…
both of my rolls of film are fine! WHEWW.
can’t wait to develop some photosss. chyeaaah.
Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is God good?
Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is God good, then? Hmm?
(Student was silent)
Professor: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?
Professor: Is Satan good?
Professor: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From.. God.
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Professor: So who created evil?
(Student didn't answer)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them?
(Student had no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God.
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Student: No, sir, there isn't.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was a pin-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light... But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it's called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The class was in uproar)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?
(The class broke out into laughter)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)
Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!
That student was Albert Einstein.
i need inspiration, motivation, +determination.
sigh. it’s that time again when i lose inspiration to create, lose motivation to study, and lose determination to achieve my goals.

disappointment has a name, it's heartbreak.
you know what? I GIVE UP. i’m done with you two. i miss you a lot, but obviously you don’t care as much as i do about our friendship. if you don’t want to be in my life, that’s fine. i won’t bother you anymore. i saw you this morning. did you see me? you should’ve since you passed right by me. i wanted to say hi, but you didn’t even glance my way. ...

funny how one text can mean so much. thank you for texting me first today, it means a lot more to me than you know.
I CAN'T FOCUS.
RAWWRRRRR. i need to do my stupid quiz corrections but i keep getting distracted by the smallest things. -_- and my mom and sister left me at home to go to the mall. they suck.
you make me feel like i'm living a teenage dream.
i’m sosososo happy that there’s no school tomorrow! cause i need to do my EE and we all know that christine is the best when it comes to procrastinating. :] hahah so, while i was volunteering yesterday i got bit by something (i thought it was a mosquito but my mom said it’s probably something else) 40+ times. no, that 0 and + are not typos. -_- so now i have all this medicine...
i ruv this nail polish color! (thanks joanna :D)
Day 1 - One guy who means a lot to you
my dad. he provides, he cares, he loves, he protects, he guides, he sacrifices, he does everything for his family. i think my dad is the best and i wish i could show him that i’m really thankful for everything, but i’m bad at expressing myself sometimes (and i think i got that from him too haha). i feel like we have bad timing when we try to talk because he’s really quiet and...
life just keeps moving on.
there are so many people that are slowly fading out of my life that i miss a lot. it makes me pretty sad…:/ especially since this is most likely my last year here. i want to spend as much time with everyone i care about and make lots of memories. i really miss you and i hope you do too, but i can never tell how you feel. i miss talking to you all day about everything and at the same time,...
