Nom nom

Breakfast for CHAMPIONS! Yeah Buoy!

-French 101-
Croque: crisp (or toasted)
Madame: lady
Croque Madame: toasted ham and cheese sandwich
Yellow Balloon: Ballon Jaune

Using my  "wonderful" French 1 skills...I came up with the title for a delicious sandwich. Called:

Un Croque Ballon Jaune
Munching on some iron, protein, fiber, potassium, selenium, magnesium, vitamin b2, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, Omega 6 fatty acids, and the list goes on. *


(2) Whole grain bread slices + egg whites + spinach + olive oil + sprinkled parmesan cheese + salt + pepper + garlic + spicy mustard = Nom nom.

Discovery, do you copy?

April 16, 2012. Discovery says one last goodbye to the Kennedy Space Center and flies to its new home.
Dulles International Airport
Ever since the 1960's discovery of space shuttles, dreamers around the world expanded and develop their career hopes.

When asked: What do you want to be when you grow up?
They said: Astronauts! 

Although some changed their mind as they discovered new talents and fields, some kept the hope that someday they would have such opportunity. But recently, it seems that the hope has become so thin as some believe that the future does not hold many spots for astronauts in the US. Although it seems that private companies are the first in line at the moment, I believe that there is still hope.

Si Dios quiere
If God Wills
Amy's story: Three days ago, I checked my e-mail to see if I had won a ticket to see the space shuttle arrive. I didn't win. Two days ago I received a message from a friend inviting me to come watch the space shuttle arrive at the airport. One day ago, I watched the most amazing landing of a Boeing 747 carrying a space shuttle. Today, I am still trying to take it all in.

If motivation was like a rechargeable battery, then the motivation I am carrying right now is fully charged!

I thank God for the miracle of surprises. It held a very powerful message this time:

Don't give up.

Specially when the future looks like a blur.

This yellow balloon girl is not going to give up when the tide gets high. I might be that student who always leaves the class labs last, takes the full class time to finish exams, asks the very basic questions, etc, but I am alright with that.

"God doesn't call us to be successful, God calls us to be faithful." -Mother Theresa

Now lets Discover. All in the Glory of God!

I thank God that I have met you


That the things that you live through are not meant to be burdens, but blessings along our path to Christ.
That instead of deepening our feelings of fear as we approach those bumps, we hold on to His word and let Him steer the way.
That the times when  we cannot see what is ahead, we believe in God's plan for us.
That even when we love the scenery around us in the present, we can accept any changes.

So enjoy the ride now. Cherish it.
Embrace the journey and all of its bumps.
Be thankful for them, for they brought you to many familiar faces.

As you sit and whatch the night sky shine.
Spend it with your love ones nearby.
If you are miles apart, kindle the love coming from your heart.
Do not let the time advance, without telling them your thoughts:
I am glad that we met, and that we will meet again.
If not in this world, then I pray that we meet in our father’s place.

The beautiful city of Washington DC

To all of my friends, teachers, and mentors. From the past, present, and future. I thank God that I had the honor of meeting you!
-Ahhhh meee
