Perfect Harmony

I received my very LATE birthday present from a good friend of mine (who is that dude wearing black). He gave me a hand-made music box. It's a funny, random gift. 
Cute little boys playing instruments.
Happy birthday to me!

It's that word up there that I absolutely admire in people. According to my free dictionary app (praise God it’s free!), the word disciplined is defined as a, “behavior in accord with rules of conduct; behavior and order maintained by training and control.” When one is disciplined, there is so much desire, restraint, focus, and determination to meet the desired goal. For instance, my parents are amazing role models.  My dad never missed a day of work just cause he wanted to. For the past, I don’t know, 100 years!? (exaggerating here), he never chose to stay home or pretended to be sick even if he has paid leaves! HAHAHA! How amazing is that? Then there’s mom. Always on time, always ready 1-2 hours before her appointments. Ahhh, that’s just commendable behavior. I wish to meet more people whom I can find inspiration in. We all need positive influences that will propel us to want to be better.

How bout you? What characteristics do you admire in people?

Application part: been studying for my comprehensive exam. Tomorrow, I shall go to school early to start the day right. YAY for accomplished goals! Check! Check!
My notes, hahaha...

72 Days of Marriage

So I think most of you have been well-informed about the expired marriage contract that lasted 72-days...  Can you believe it? I can’t even begin to fathom how quick this highly publicized marriage ended!  
Thanks, Hollywood! You have definitely ruined the sanctity of marriage.  
“Major headlines” such as this, move me to reflect upon my life and how people make serious decisions like that. If in the marriage and you’re already seeing things that stirs up conflict, seek help. Marriage is about relationships. You deal with people and people change and people mess up, and people are/can be psychos! But there is hope and the sanctity of marriage should be respected. Arguments about annoying comments, the toilet seat, being distant, watching too much sports, defective listening skills, all these can be magnified into outrageous proportions as they're not dealt with properly, but is it not fixable? Clearly, I’m against divorce, but I’m no expert on the topic when it comes to abuse or violence in the home. But what I do know is that if it’s “irreconcilable differences” that’s creating a rift between you two, how much effort was truly exerted into reconciling those differences when you were head over heels with that person when you said, “I do!”
For the singles (and for myself) I must say that your heart = emotions should not run your life. The Bible says, “Guard your heart” (Proverbs 4:23) because “the heart is deceitful above all things” (Jeremiah 17:9). You must put your critical thinking skills to work and please, give yourself TIME. All I know is that when you have a deep conviction about something from the very START, do not settle for what’s second-best or available. I've had my regrets in the past and now I'm wiser (hopefully). If you’re wondering where that person is and why he or she hasn’t come yet, have faith and wait. Let’s enjoy being in His presence in the meantime. Though it is painful, the results will truly be worth it all. Let’s go for what you believe we deserve and aim for His best.

Deng, someone get me a publisher?! Gotta write some books!
Do you have a list of non-negotiable’s when it comes to meeting your future mate?

Random Thought.

I need some breathing space. Been reviewing on the same topic for the past two hours and I need some time to reflect upon myself. So I found this. And this is just what I have to say:
Yes. Totally being HUMBLE at the moment.

But on a serious note, I'm going to go nuts if I don't make ME laugh cause studying can really suck the life out of ya. But do you like this show? It took a while for it to grow on me :o)
