给正在奋斗的你

你脸上云淡风轻,谁也不知道你的牙咬得多紧。你笑得没心没肺,没人知道你哭起来只能无声落泪。你必须非常努力,才能让人觉得你毫不费力。度过一段自己都能感动的日子。之后,你想要的岁月统统会还给你。

A New Year and Another Chance

Experienced with the rather scary situation downtown (with the fireworks aiming at people instead of the sky and smoke filling the square and streets), we chose a small hill overlooking the river this time. Turned out, people were playing wildly and it was smoky and a little bit dangerous too.

Ah well, it was a new year countdown.

Usually I’m able to sort of guess the agenda of the year, like, I’m going to get to the next year of my studies in the summer, if things go well. But this year, as I’m graduating, my future remains scarily unclear. This year will bring a lot of new experience, but also a tremendous amount of uncertainty, which to be honest, is extremely unnerving for me. I do hope that I will be pleasantly surprised this year, like I did in 2014 ;)

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right

How many (Merry Christmas!)

Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mothers shawl
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?


Cause how many kings, stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
How many Gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that has torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Lyrics from How Many Kings

This is the day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas!

Gift of God

Today was the last day of class before Christmas and New Year holiday! For me, I just wanna relax and enjoy the temporary bliss of not having to go for lectures, for some classmates originally from nearby regions this is the time to go back to family. Not to mention, for a lot of people Christmas season means good food, presents, and fun!

Amid all these wonderful things, give thanks to God for all of them! :D Afterall, Jesus is the ultimate Gift from God, and He alone is the reason of this joyous season!

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.

-Ecclesiastes 3:12-13
