Big Kid Little Kid Stuff

Now Playing: MercyMe - Move

Have you ever felt so stressed/anxious/scared that you felt like you were going to throw up and faint?
Nope, never! 

Kidding. It actually happened recently, and it left me disheartened. 

Little kid moment: Quit. Call it a day. Leave the problem. Take a nap. Take the "fun" route. Watch a movie.

Big kid moment: No snooze. Confront the problem. Carry our Cross. Coffeeeee (:P). Take the "no fun" route.

The stuff. ah. 

Recently I had my first big kid interview

The day of my interview, I had the opportunity to go to Mass. The homily was all about integrity and authenticity. To be honest (hehe), it is hard to not think of rehearsing a "great" answer that may not be completely genuine. Let's be real guys!

Happy October :-)

Good food:

May we pray through both consolation and desolation. "The Dark Knight of the Soul."

Trusting and Letting Go

I used to read poems. Maybe I was too busy following the "trend" of things.

Struggling to let go and let God.

As thankful as I am for the reminders that we are made for more, I want those words to really sink through.

I was reading about ways to cultivate in humility. As I read through the list, the one that made me really nervous was the one that mentioned accepting humiliation. 


May we not hide our flaws and pretend we got it all figured out.

Quote that struck me today: 

"Don't compare your love story to those you watch in the movies, those are written by screen writers. Your's is written by God." -Unknown

A recap


 Now Playing: Shape of My Heart - Backstreet Boys

Time flies. Halfway through 2015! I miss blogging. I miss recapping the little moments because I realized how easy it was to take it all for granted. In ways, blogging helped me highlight the little things.


Something I am thankful for this past couple of months have been learning so much about aerospace. Even trying to summarize the little things I learned in the basic categories of aerospace, made me realized how it is like putting your toes into a sea of water.

For example, a turbofan (picture below). Before, I would look at this and know that it is super loud and not fun to sit near it. Now, I still think it is super loud but simultaneously so interesting.

Watching touch and goes. Don't underestimate the power of the small airplanes :P


F is for fun, free, fitness, and food!

Last Fall, we got a Whole Foods in the city. I know some people have a negative connotations with organic stores for their prices, but I think they are pretty cool for their free events.

This is green goodness. Sweet and tasty!
They have been holding free cooking classes this summer. Last week, only half the people that signed up for the class actually showed up. We basically got a full meal!
Carne Asada. Corn tortilla. Fresh made avocado and salsa. All organic. 
 An awesome meal with an awesome person. The foodie in me...

 You know what is the best tip I can give anyone that wants to run in a track on a hot summer day? Find out if there is a sprinkler system, and if so, go running at the same time the sprinklers go off! is much harder to go down.

Air drumming


Now Playing

"Hit rewind. Click delete. Stand to face with the younger me. All of the mistakes, all of the heartbreaks here is what I would do differently:

Love like I am not scare
Give when it is not fair
Live like for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall
But above it all...
Fix my eyes on You."
-King & Country

When I go running and this song comes up in my ipod, I can't help but to start air drumming. :)

Thankful #4

Because I think this is worth sharing.

" role as a man to not just pursue you through the great valleys and mountains, but to fight for you when you are tempted by a serpent, to be a mirror and reflect the beauty that God created you in, to uphold your dignity and not defame it by watching pornography, to point you back to God instead of to my own desires and pleasures, and to treat you as a subject not an object."

I am thankful for hope. That even with wounds and scars, we still have hope. 

Ahhhhhh meee
