So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
…you know. Just when I start to lose faith in humanity….Hm.
Yet the hands that cradle the stars
Are the hands that bled for me.
For You chose to take the sinner’s crown
As you placed Your crown on me
There will always be a bittersweet feeling about leaving either for Korea or coming back to New York because my parents live in completely different continents; one must be left behind in order to be with the other.
Don’t miss me too much guys!
I love it when people share little things with me.
It doesn’t even have to be something big, but simple as,
“Hey look at this scab, this music makes me happy, or I’m eating carrots.”
It’s so simple and random because we keep these things to ourselves because they seem like useless comments. I’m not talking about empty words but something that we want to share, just because we can.
Don’t we all wish for someone that we can just be real with?
Who won’t mind the silence and savor the still moment.
Who will dare to challenge me with their thoughts and opinions.
Unconsciously expressing one’s quirky and witty actions that others overlook.
I’ve never fell in love with another city other than New York City, until I went to Seattle. I’m definitely going back to live there at least for a year within my lifetime. Everything about it was so beautiful and breathtaking; I can’t wait to go back one day.

Last summer while I was struggling with finishing my testimony for Seattle missions my mentor came up to me; becoming one of the most memorable conversations I had.
: Quick, Who is God in your life?
Me: Wait, like nouns? Um… GAuh- I don’t know, I need some time to think.
: Just any three words that come into mind when you think of God.
Me: Healer, Lover…
: There you go.
You have healed the pain and scars that others were unable to see. When I was fragile, you have held me with gentle hands while whispering loving words that renewed my soul. You have showed me what true love is; You have loved me with unconditional love that overwhelms my heart. It was Your love that has set me free from a locked place of darkness and depression.Through You I have to learned to love, to be humble, and have compassion. Though at times my earthly father may have failed, I know that we have a heavenly Father that provides His children with an abundance of love and riches of glory. You are the hope to the hopeless, the truth to those who are lost, and the life of those who are in need of light. And here I am today as a living testimony for Your glory alone. I know that You are still breaking me, molding me, and handling me with sensitivity to become the woman of God that You want me to be. I am truly Yours, break my heart for what breaks Yours.
Too excited for the blessings and the testimonies to come this summer.
Psalm 105:1-5, ESV Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice! Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered.

Colossians 3:23 ESV
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
i’m so in love with this. i can’t even. ah. my favourite feeling in the world is putting your head beneath the water and entering an entirely different place, so peaceful, so quiet. what i miss more than anything when i’m living away from the ocean is being able to duck under and leave all my worries on the surface.
This is extraordinary
I don’t know why but sometimes I imagine myself driving a car with my future hubby beside me and singing our lungs out to this song HABAHAHA
or Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis, only because I’m pro at lip-syncing to that song.
