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


Sunday, September 5, 2010


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.

Well, it has been approximately 4 days of college.

Actually, it hasn't even been college! It has been welcome week!!!

I have had a good time:

-meeting new people and then promptly forgetting their names
-playing ridiculous icebreakers
-sweating it out in this freaking heat
-living 24/7 in a public space

As welcome week is winding down, I am winding up (doesn't make sense but I am trying to make a pun here, humor me) for the start of academics! We had our Academic day of welcome week today, and while everyone complained about listening to boring speeches of how awesome humanities and social sciences were, I was already PSYCHed (also another pun, as I will be majoring in psychology) because I was in a freaking lecture hall in the presence of professors who are just SO INCREDIBLY SMART and are ready to impart that knowledge to me!!!! On the downside, I had to spend money to buy textbooks, so boo for that.

I'm sure that I will not be excited about class once it actually starts, but it's ok!!! I don't think I have ever been excited for school because I would be able to learn...

Carnegie Mellon is definitely where I am supposed to be.

It has only been one day on the east coast, and all i can say is that...

One last day.

One last day!

One last day?

It truly is bittersweet. I don't want to do the whole "I grew up so much, but let me whine about leaving in my blog so other people can sympathize with me and acknowledge my growth as a person, therefore acknowledging me and my existence" thing.

My favorite author, John Green, said in his vlog thing:

"College is a place where you are no longer a child, but you don't have to do the annoying adult stuff, like cleaning your toilet. But this in-between space gives you, for the first time in your life, time, to do things that you want to do."

Essentially, that is what I want: Time, so I can actually take classes that I want to take (and then possibly blow them off for, ohhhh, I don't know, a nap?). I am excited about becoming a faux-adult, but am petrified at the fact that I will no longer be treated like a child. My comfort cotton baby blanket is being ripped away from me to be replaced by polyester. poopie.

I am closing the book on my childhood and turning a new page in another book. (Speaking of books, I just thought of a quote that was from the beginning of a book but i forgot what book it was called, "I am the loser in the game of life." interesting.)

Bored bored bored.

I am tired, but, since I a lame person and don't want to sleep before 11, I decided to look at the Orientation schedule for CMU next week.


There are so many things to do, and all these people that I have to meet. This is either going to really suck, or just partially suck. I found myself becoming less social this summer, and while having alone time is a good thing, I'm not sure that I trust myself to be normal and make friends in a whole new environment. eek!

This is the first time I have ever been scared to go to college, and it will probably not be the last. God, grant me courage!

When I first came to Mexico, I definitely thought that I would be grunging it up and making a direct impact on the Ensenada community.

What I actually did? I worked in the kitchen and built one house. one!

I'm not complaining, though. I am actually rejoicing. Every single time I go out somewhere for Jesus, He seems to:

1. Crush my own expectations, and then promptly
2. Blow me out of the water with His experience

I have gotten to know amazing and inspiring people who hail from all sorts of different backgrounds in different parts of the world. I have felt God show me what heaven will feel like. I may not have done things that have an immediate result, but, as I work behind the scenes, I have seen what it takes to run an operation like this.

This is not a missions trip, but an immersion into the life of a missionary. Of course, I will miss this place. Life is definitely more simple here, where people don't make long term plans on where they will be in ten years, or even what they are doing this evening! But of course, I know that God has sent me to college for a reason. I can't always stay in this bubble forever.

Adios Mexico (even though I really leave on Saturday), see you when I see you.

Friday, July 2, 2010



I am typing this in the combines of Ensenada, Mexico! There isn't really anything to report here, seeing as this is only my second day at YWAM. All I can say is that the people here are SUPER nice and really into Asian people. I'm not quite sure what I will be doing, so I guess more updates on that later!


Monday, June 28, 2010


Today, I received a package in the mail. From Carnegie Mellon. And by package I mean a book. And by book I mean the book "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch. And by Randy Pausch I mean the guy who put good ol' CMU on the map!!

Oh private schools. I love you.

Two more days.

Sunday, June 27, 2010


I officially have 3 more days left until I leave...

For Mexico, that is.

I guess I am somewhat excited, but I also have a sense of bittersweet feelings that are mixed in there. I mean, I am given approximately two months of summer to spend my last days in California before I head off to Pittsburgh. However, half of that will be spent in a city where I cannot do multiple things, such as:

-speak the language (anymore)
-eat the food (to some extent)
-swim in the ocean that is right next to where I will be staying
-bond with friends that I kind of just got to know well only a couple of months ago
-hang out with the famry
-sit on my assets all day and watch movies/tv marathons

As sucky as I guess that all sounds, I can't say that I'm totally hating the idea of going to Mexico. I can still remember the nights where I could feel God's presence on the camp, and listen to testimonies that were both surprising and inspiring. I saw both miracles take place and memories form right before my eyes (wrestling anyone? I am surprised that nobody was seriously injured), and I can't wait to see what God has in store for me/chris/timmy.

Adios, amigos y amigas. I will see you soon! And by you I mean the remaining handful of people that actually read this. And by soon, I mean Sonoma (John and Clare, hello!)

I would like to point out that today was the first day I cheated on a computer game. I kicked some MAJOR BUTT in age of empires. Oh cobras and star wars figurines of which I do not know the name of (storm troopers?), why are you so tempting and yet so frakking awesome?

It is definitely really easy to cheat, I realize now, when nobody is looking. I think the idea of cheating is all relative. I mean, if everyone eventually uses the cheats in AoE and beats the game, it's not really cheating now, is it?

Once I played Super Smash Bros Melee, and this guy who used Samus would always kick butt and I had no idea why, until I peeked at what his hands were doing to the controller and it turned out that he was using the C-stick to use the smash moves. CHEATERRR.

Anyways, it is 11PM. I exercised today for the first time ever since the end of school, and I don't think I ever felt like puking so much from eating. OH PIZZA MY HEART, WHY ARE YOUR FREE PIZZA SLICES SO BAD TO MY BODY?!

Sometimes I wish that bad food was healthy for you.

As you can see, I am really just documenting what is going through my mind. At All-Nighter at YG, I was forced to stall for like 15 minutes, and I actually just talked about nothing. It was really weird, like this blog, I guess.

Last night I dreamed that I had to organize Snow Retreat again, and I had to plan all of the food stuff because the people at Camp Chinquapin didn't do food services, and when we got there they refused to make our food, and whatever MAC did to convince them otherwise they got HELLLA PISSED. then I woke up, and was scared that I was going to be late for VBS.

I can't remember what I was feeling when I was about to take my first steps as a high school freshman, but I hope I remember this feeling of almost graduating as a high school senior.

Again, I think it is this discomfort I have with my unknown future. I know now that I am not as confident that I would like to be, not as skinny as I would like to be, and definitely not as funny as I think I am, so of course there are doubts flowing through my head about being accepted and wanted as a person. These are all basic needs that probably every single senior feels as they go to college. However, it is hard to believe that fact, and easy to believe that it is going to be me against the world. Quite a scary thought. God, please grant me the strength to get through all of this unnecessary (but really, necessary) emotion. I want to FEARLESSLY TAKE ON THE WORLD! i love cliches.

one more day until the end

Tuesday, June 1, 2010


3 more days.

I think I am split between wanting to get out of high school ASAP because I am sick and tired of the busy work and feeling nostalgic and kind of wishing that I could do it all over again. I am glad to say that I have accomplished a lot of the things I wanted to do in Monta Vista:

-win a rally
-lose a rally
-Get a job

I am usually not the type to be nostalgic, but I think I realized today that I am finally at peace with the things that I wanted to do at MV but never did. On top of that, I will be moving for the first legitimate time to a new home in a completely new environment. I don't think nostalgia is just remembering the past, but actually an indirect fear of the future because your comfort zone is vanishing in 72 hours.

I am definitely scared of what the future will bring me, but as I review the montage of memories in my 4 years of high school, I can't help but feel like God had me every step of the way. I now kind of know who I am, and I can say that God has already known where I would be headed and everything seemed to fall into place perfectly. I am scared, but I am excited, because I know that I will embark on an adventure that God has for me, and it will be BAWSSSSOME.

I find it really cool when:
-earplugs actually MOLD TO YOUR EARS!
-I get to find new music that barely anyone else knows
-other people can touch their toes, b/c i can't
-it is windy outside! (HA.)
-I can walk through Kennedy and have people look at me weirdly because I don't look like a middle school kiddo anymore!
-my veins can pop out of my arms like I work out all the time
-i can see what my desk looks like without layers of paper
-I have the ability to now indulge in my favorite anti-social activity: reading!
-there is enough time in my day to think about things that are really cool

I guess this can also be a list of things I am thankful for, because being thankful is being cool!

Saturday, May 15, 2010



oh dear.

Well anyways, yesterday was senior ditch day, and instead of going to the beach like a lot of people did, I hung out with THE COOLEST PEOPLE EVER! (sans chris and timmy.JK)

However, when I look at all of the fb pics of panther beach and such, I can't help but feel somewhat left out. I think it was partly because I didn't feel like I would fit in as much as I would like, etc etc cue my list of insecurities (INCLUDING: pale skin, flab, being socially awkward).

As much as I would like to be more "popular" or whatever, I think the turn of events in my life has led me to be someone who enjoys friendship, but doesn't pine for a mass amount of friends/people that know me. I mean, sure, it is nice to have, but always going out instead of watching chuck at home? Dude. Too much work. Maybe this is what people call introverted? Or just lazy.

I guess what I mean to say is, it sucks, but WHATEVER! I still am able to find joy as well as tons of fun doing other things. Ashley Chen's feelings of insecurities, you can SUCK IT.

It smells like a skunk died outside my window.

So here I am, procrastinating like the pros do-I was youtubing. I came along this one interesting video, and it prompted my first attempt at being deep on a blog! Here it goes...

"Hipster"-off of urban dictionary:

"Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter (there is like this frickin essay on the definition of hipsters)...Although hipsters are technically conformists within their own subculture, in comparison to the much larger mainstream mass, they are pioneers and leaders of the latest cultural trends and ideals. "

While I was watching this, I couldn't help but think that the person singing it was somewhat of a hipster. Come to think of it, a lot of the Christian demographic, like, the ones that actually care, fit into the "hipster" category-tattoos, piercings, counter-culture activiy etc etc

Christianity, in it's beginnings, started off as a small movement with people that were rejected by the mainstream society of the day. These fishermen, tax collectors, and Samaritans were opposed by the leaders of the time, the Pharisees, who essentially blinded themselves to see something that would turn into this mainstream world-wide religion.

As Christianity has become this mainstream thing that everyone seems to know and understand, I can't help but feel that God is sending out another revolution through those who seem to be done with the idea that God is given in the form of a slot machine, and if you say enough prayers, maybe one will win you the jackpot and all of your deepest desires and wishes will be taken care of. Our society's current hipsters are embracing something that was the hipsters of a thousand and something years ago understood. I don't know about you, but I think that it's amazing to see how God is able to pull us back to His main message of love even at a time where Christianity seems to be at its peak. Hipsters are people who start a trend, and God is using these hipsters to start a new revolution.

I would say that is pretty deep and pretty awesome.

happy pot day! sometimes i wonder what my blog would be like if I wrote only when I was totally baked...

i like unicorns.


Today I have officially become a part of the Carnegie Mellon Class of 2014! Well, I actually submitted my statement of intent to register (SIR) quite a while back, but I think, in my heart, I finally accepted the fact that, in August, I will be packing my life into a couple of boxes and shipping them thousands of miles to a completely new environment, one that is filled with Greek life, snow, and white people.

I'm still not exactly sure about the whole idea of pledging to a fraternity or sorority. I'm not too sure if I fit into the sorority "woo" girl, but I guess I am just being too quick to judge. I was looking at some of the other CMU 2014ers, and they all seemed to be really excited to pledge to a Greek group.

Honestly, I don't exactly see the joys of being in a frat/sorority. It all just seems like a glorified clique that happens to do community service on the side. IIIIIIIIIIIIII don't know. I watched a documentary about frats and sororities when I was taking a sociology class at DeAnza, and I can definitely tell you that I did not leave that class loving Greek life.

Happy Easter!!

Today was baptism here at HOC5. I think every time there is baptism I think of two things:

1. My own baptism-I got baptized in 7th grade, and I think, back then, that I truly didn't understand what I was doing. A lot of times i think that I did it just to be on the worship team or something? Maybe I thought it was just a rite of passage to become someone at youth group. I also definitely didn't understand who God was and how He has truly affected my life. Well, I guess I still don't, but I definitely wish that I could re-do my testimony and add all sorts of juicy bits of my life after I got baptized. But I guess I can still do that now

2. Baptism kiddos (including me) always include snow retreat. This time there were 32 people that were getting baptized, and around 28 of them were all youth that talked about how big of an impact the last night of Snow Retreat was and how the worship was so moving, etc etc. It's so weird that I was actually used by God in an active way to touch people's lives with my gift. On top of that, I didn't care about anything that night, and I was HELLZAS tireds of everything yo. It is pretty surreal when I look at it in retrospect.

Well anyways, congrats (and happy birthday) to all those who were baptized today!!

Thursday, April 1, 2010


It's a boy!!!

just kidding. april fools!

Anwyays, today marks the momentous day that all of my college decisions are done with. I guess it's nice to know that your choices are narrowed when all of those gosh-darn ivy-league schools reject you. No worries, I am not bitter. Go TARTANS (mascot for Carnegie-Mellon)!! or Trojans (USC)!! or Tritons (UCSD)!! I think I only get accepted into schools whose mascots start with a T.

Looking at this whole process from a Christian prospective, the main lesson that I learned was that God's expectations are definitely NOT what you think they are. It's definitely all about the trust, and even though it sounds easy in theory, it sure is hard in practice.

Now all I have to do is pick...which baby to abort.


Thursday, March 18, 2010


In leadership, we watched this one video about a crazy guy that starts dancing, and it eventually turns into a "movement" or whatever. The url is above! But yeah, we had to write this bloggy reflection and I decided, hey, why not just post what I wrote onto my blog? kekeke.

After watching this video, I definitely had a lot going through my head about how this applies to me. Many people have labeled me as a “leader” my whole life, and I think that I have come to accept that “leadership” qualities that have been identified in other people as a part of myself. I guess, in my current state of teen angst and rebellion, it’s hard to see if that part of my own character exists within me.

This senior year has been quite interesting because of that. My dream of being a class officer was realized. I was a public official, and therefore, easy to follow. However, I started to see that my previous ideas of being a leader did not apply at all. I started to question myself: am I truly a leader? Or am I just a follower that happened to end up with friends that are involved in these school activities? I spoke up less and less in class, and my previous goal of getting my teacher to become BFFs with me faded into a new goal of breezing through my classes as a “quiet Asian girl” that nobody remembers after a couple of years. I guess this crazy transformation that I am currently going through is a little, well, crazy, but it’s hard to get myself out of this slump.

One thing that definitely know is that, however much I would like to deny my leadership qualities, I want my voice to be heard. I want to see my own dreams become realities, and what better way to do that than to get a bunch of other people to do it with you? I guess this is the un-glorified definition of a leader: a crazy person that has the insatiable need to be followed, liked, and well-received by his/her peers.

Today I learned that my brother has started taking kung-fu lessons.

That might just be the bawss-est thing I have ever heard.

Snow Retreat 2010

It has been almost a month since my very last snow retreat ended, and I guess it's finally time for that traditional rant. Originally, I told myself that I wouldn't write one of these this year because I wanted to keep my thoughts on the private side, and apparently I "have better things to do with my time". Still true for the first half, definitely not true for the second half. My senioritis has gotten so bad that yesterday, I downloaded and played Age of Empires II for 3 HOURS. and then I watched Chuck.

random tangent end.

Anyways, snow retreat. I actually started working on snow retreat in 2009, when I teamed up with MAC and Grace to start making stuff happen. In retrospect, a lot of the Snow Retreat planning stuff ended up running smoothly, so props to MAC and Grace and the rest of the team for that. Thanks, guys :)

So yes. Things I learned about God/me from snow retreat:

-Slow down! I definitely realized that I have been slowly inching away from God by immersing myself through activities, surprisingly, through the Church. It's easy to plan things and not be able to step out and see the whole picture.

-Prayer performs miracles. I definitely think that this year's real theme should have been something like this, or at least something about prayer. Our worship team actually prayed on Sunday night and Monday night, and, to me, God definitely answered our prayers. He did what I thought would be impossible-people actually opened up and drank up His beautiful glory.

-God will always provide a way out. I guess this is related to that infamous Monday night. I had to play piano for around 3 hours, and I was not looking forward to it at all. I realize now that I have ended up viewing my musical abilities as a chore instead of an act of worship. As our worship team gathered in the back, I could not help but feel exhausted. I don't think I have ever been more physically, emotionally, and spiritually spent, and all I wanted to do was to sleep. But, when people actually started praying for me (cue the waterworks), I felt energized and completely at peace for the rest of my duration up on stage (it's actually pretty neat, the moment we finished, I was back to being tired). There really is no other way to describe that night, other than cliche, because the experience of that night is overused by everyone who was there that evening. That's a good thing though.

-and, on a lighter note, watch out for random bumps on the slopes that will SCREW YOUR PERFECT RUN. I am still bitter.

I am glad that I never really got any emotional high from this retreat, because I am now able to actually see what God was able to teach me. I will miss Snow Retreat? I guess I'm just scared that I will become a statistic, and be one of the 8 out of 10 that fall away because I won't have these mid-year retreats at college.

the end.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


Sometimes I wonder why people are scared to confront others. I mean, wouldn't it be easier to do that than, say, make a wall of shame?

I dunno. It makes me wonder if the only way to become successful is to become a straight up prick with a heart of stone. I would rather be happy than successful then, I guess.

Oh well. I don't care enough to seek revenge. I have better things to think about.

Tuesday, February 9, 2010


The thing that I am looking forward to the most in college is, I think, the lack of art projects.

The other day, a postmodern current events project was assigned by our lovely hipster teacher (hipster like the type that graduated from dartmouth and drinks peets coffee. not that i dont like people who go to dartmouth and/or drink peets...they are awesome! butttt you know those people that like fit exactly into the stereotype that is trying to be broken?) that required ARTS AND CRAFTS. NOOOO. Like seriously, I don't think I have ever gotten 100% on projects like these, because teachers who assign these are LIARS!! "We aren't grading you on how pretty it is yadda yadda yadda equality i love peets coffee etc etc" Oh please! What about that section marked, "neatness"? HMM??? YEAH. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

Anyways, long story short, I get Angeline, who I guess jumped me and stole all of my artistic capabilities when we were still angels in heaven, to draw my poster for me. It ends up being super cute, what else is new.

I can't wait until the day where all I have to do is write what I think and take notes. go college!

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

2/2/10 again!

twice in one day?! oh my. this is cause for celebration!!!one!!!1!!

Lately there have been lots of switches from blogspot to tumblr. I have to admit, it is quite tempting to also make the changes. The fonts are prettier, and you can post stuff in forms other than writing and pictures and youtube vids on blogspot. BUT. I WILL NOT FALL. I will resist, just like how I resist twitter! (Allllthough I really want to follow someone to get the up-to-date infos on the lynbrook-mv game tomorrow. poopie.)

TAKE THAT, mainstream America!

I am such a rebel. I think I should join the Green Party.



I never really understood what the point of this day was about, and yet I still religiously follow that stinkin' rodent every February 2nd. I still don't get how seeing a shadow would mean 6 more weeks of winter...anyways.

It has been approximately a month since the start of the new year, and instead of posting the new years resolution thang on January 1st, I decided to thumb my nose at the rest of mainstream blogger society and make one in FEBRUARY. Take that, mainstream America! (Actually, I was always meaning to write one, but I was either too lazy I was just too lazy.)

Since the start of the new year, I have:

-Lost weight! (gained it back within a week...and then some. eating panda today probably did not help)

-Longboarded! (One time around the block before I got a couple of weird stares from the indian familia that lives across the street)

-Hiked! (up to Hunter's point, where I felt like I was 40 because I felt sore afterwards. I also did the hike in flip flops.)

-Eaten a McGangBang! (Delicious, but it definitely contributed to the gaining-back-weight thing).

-Re-developed my love for reading! (1984. WHAT UP. I have two more books in my car and one sitting on my desk)

-Gone to Winter Ball! yayy

Since the start of the new year, I have not:

-Exercised regularly like I thought I would

-Gone on a picnic

-Become organized. INSERT BIG SIGH HERE


-Grilled a steak by myself (although I have started to make lunch for the familia every Saturday! yay)

-Drive stick.

-Gone on any COLLEGE VISITS!

And, most importantly (as well as the most frightening), I have not done devotionals. OHHH dear. I know that this will not turn into any positive growth for my spiritual growth. In fact, it is probably a negative thing! It is definitely going to be hard to get over this hump of apathy and laziness to become m more devoted to my own spiritual growth.

Well, that is my list of the thing I have/have not done. My goal is to be able to do every single one of the things I have not done yet. 2010, here we go!
