Today is family day at Carnegie Mellon. People are going back home to their parents for the weekend here in Pennsylvania. Also people are going back to their families back in California.

I wish I could do that.

I'm not saying that I am homesick or stuff like that. I mean, I really like it here at CMU, and I have a family here too! But having the option of just going back home for the weekend is always very nice. It's hard to believe that I won't be going back home for another six weeks, especially since I have only been here for the same amount of time. It's weird-I have two comfort zones that are on opposite sides of the country. I am sure that when I go back to Cupertino I will miss Carnegie Mellon. Fun stuff!

Also Tartini has a new flavor-guava tart. Effffff.

I guess I am rushing for sororities here at CMU?..

Quite odd.

Actually it is quite interesting-the sorority life here seems a lot different from other schools. Buuuut then again, what do I know? I have never been to a different school. I am pretty excited to see where I will end up/if I will even like it or not. I am entering this rush process with a wary heart and an open mind.

The most pressing question is, however..

WHAT THE FREAK AM I GOING TO WEAR? effing screwed effing eff.

also I would like to note that after 5 weeks of college my bedtime has already been moved back an hour.

also i would like to point out that my previous post was the 69th post. awesome

why am i getting a tumblr??? i am a SELLOUT BEYOND SELLOUTS! i am selling the sellouts! blogspot is my baby, etc etc

fo-reals yo. however. i am really tired of not being able to follow people as well as I would like (aka i want to be a better stalker.) also i want people to stalk me and so they can hear me whine and complain about my life. YAYY.

so I have decided to just copy/paste my posts so people can read my blogspot and/or tumblr! although really you would only have to pick one because, well, it would just be the same thing.

so lets DO THIS THANG.

This is my theme song

An interesting thought came to me in the shower this morning (usually I think of what to wear for the day, but today be Sunday! Time to rip out the Ashley Chen apparel):

Death, or dying, is awesome for Christians.

We are constantly fighting in this never ending spiritual war, and every single hurdle or wall that we jump or climb over, we are met with an even higher hurdle and an even bigger wall. We are tempted and tried, and all we can lean on is the fact that God is the ultimate Father in order for us to continue in this rat race we call life. I mean of course we are here for a reason and we have to live out the purpose that He has given to us, but you know what?

Heaven is going to be freaking dank (new lingo that I picked up from the East Coast-ers).

When I was in Mexico, I sometimes would stop singing/worshipping during the sessions that were organized, and just watch other people from the back of the room. Everyone was worshipping in the way that THEY wanted without any fear of judgment. On the days that I watched, all I could think about was the fact that Heaven is going to be a million times better, and I am only experiencing a fraction of God's greatness and power.

I am looking forward to the day when I will not be tempted by the Devil, when I won't be bothered by evil spirits that try to distract me from God.

I am not afraid of death. I welcome it with open arms.

I think I found the reason why all us first-years gain those gosh darn fifteen pounds.

Today, I ate dinner. I also ate lunch and breakfast. What's the problem, you ask?

I also ate an energy bar, a hi-chew, and a packet of asian snacks.

I also fell asleep in class today, and I am about to fall asleep now.

OKay, now that I have laid out all the facts, it is time for me to correlate them! hooray!!!

Basically, in college, you are either studying, eating, sleeping, or being social. HOWEVER. If you do not want to sleep or eat, AND if you do not want to study and being social makes you feel bad because you SHOULD be studying, what do you do?!

you eat. you eat your damn sorrows away.

or you can blog your sorrows away.
