Monday Musings 8.15.2016

Apologies for missing a week, but the amount of stuff that I have had in general these past two weeks has been ridiculous. To sum it up shortly, I finished up my physics classes at UD on Friday, emceed at the Chinese Festival of Delaware on Saturday, and have been working straight since then on my family’s installation of hardwood upstairs. I also go back to school in less than two weeks, so I’m starting to organize myself and figure out what I need to bring and prepare for. Some highlights I suppose…


my favorite picture …

Podcasts for later…

Gastropod – for all things food related

Come Reason – Christian apologetics!


Movies…

watched The Imitation Game – really good, Benedict Cumberbatch is the best and such a good celebration of the life of Alan Turing

want to watch When Harry Met Sally – am trying to get into good, old romantic comedies again


All things Chinese Festival!

Such a good time emceeing for the first time (I’m the one in blue for all the pictures). It’s not one of my strong suits (being on stage), but I genuinely enjoyed it and had a good time with all the people. I also thought it was such a great way to give back to the Chinese community that I have been a part of for so many years.


Olympics!

  • my favorite sports to watch are swimming, gymnastics, and beach volleyball 
  • you should check out the story behind Shang Chunsong if you have the chance
  • also, being from two different cultures, I’m blessed to always have a team to root for 🙂 go USA and go China! 🙂

Praying for …

  • me and Jason’s relationship
  • strength in installing hardwood
  • preparation for school

Monday Musings 7.18.16

Hi hi hi sorry sorry sorry what’s up what’s up what’s up?!!

Goodness, I took a 2 week break from posting and it feels so weird coming back and pretending like nothing has happened. But many things have happened. And I have been thinking quite a lot about this blog. Thus, I thought why not combine this and make Mondays a scheduled time for me to talk about random things going on in my life? This would be sort of like weekly favorites, but also including random happenings or pretty pictures that I took during the week. And yes, I suppose Monday Musings does not fit super well but the alliteration! Gosh the alliteration, I’ll deal with the slight misnomer 😉

Anyways, to the juice…


Reading …

the sacred search – gary thomas

all about marriage and dating from a Christian perspective

crazy love – francis chan

what does it mean to be loved by God?

I’m reading the first one with a little accountability group. It’s cute and fun and I have never done something like this before, especially with girls in three different time zones, which is wild. I’m reading Crazy Love by myself and journaling. It’s been highly recommended and a huge Christian bestseller so I have huge expectations for it and am excited to get through it all. What’s interesting about these two books are that they were both gifted to me by two women that I admire so much in the Christian community. And especially Crazy Love, I had just been thinking about how much I wanted the book and that same day, she said that she wanted to give it away because she and her husband had finished reading it. Nuts right?


Enjoying …

homemade macarons from a graduation party!

Watching…

finding dory , central intelligence, legend of tarzan, alice through the looking glass

I have been watching so many movies this summer. Such a great way to hang out. Got to say, I think I liked Finding Dory and Legend of Tarzan the most. Finding Dory because I felt like the movie was just supposed to be liked. Obviously, it was super well known because of Finding Nemo, but they really brought out the acceptance of disabilities aspect and also the humor factor so much in this one that I really loved it. I also enjoyed Legend of Tarzan, but that may just have been because I think Margot Robbie is a beautiful woman and Alexander Skarsgard a handsome man.


Random pics that I love …

On My Love for Emma Watson

Who doesn’t love Emma Watson… that’s the real question.

Look at her.

Just look.

But okay, I suppose that starts my first point.

The girl is absolutely gorgeous.

Number 2!

She’s smart and she values education. It’s so hard to see other celebrities who are successful where they are, yet still prize education and schooling. Emma has enough money to last her through her entire life, yet she does even more by going to Brown University and graduating, on top of filming a bazillion movies. Obviously, she’s not the only one and you can hear about Dylan and Cole Sprouse and their studies at NYU or Chloe Bridges at Columbia… but let’s be real, she’s definitely under the spotlight the most.

(sidenote* many apologies for the random sizes of these pictures, I have no idea how to change it :P)

Number 3!

She’s such a feminist and it’s amazing. She’s amazing. :3 She isn’t just an actress or a student, she’s also a social activist. Her speech for HeForShe in support of women’s rights is straight up amazing. She is a true model to look up to, who uses her fame for something other than more luxury for herself.

 

Number 4

She’s respectful. There aren’t any of her naked pictures up on the Internet…(not that it was the fault of Jennifer Lawrence and the others) she dresses appropriately, casually, rather than trying to bring more attention to herself. I find this so attractive. It’s so easy to compare her and put her above the likes of Miley Cyrus or Rihanna.

Number 5

She’s also a successful movie star. I suppose you can’t help but mention this fact because how else did she become famous. I love Harry Potter, so that’s a bonus, but she has also starred in the most successful movies compared to her fellow castmates from Harry Potter such as The Bling Ring and Noah.

Number 6

Dat fashion sense doe… hot hot hot… Girl can work it if she wants to.

I feel like this covers most of it… let me know if you think there’s something missing that I should mention! Love for Emma Watson needs to be shared 🙂

Genesis According to Disney

I thought this was really quite interesting!

adoptingjames

It is said that all great stories derive from the Bible. I emphasize that it’s not all intentional, but just for fun, I couldn’t help pulling a few biblical inspirations from some our favorite Disney films. More to come later.

Clouds

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)

Day and Night

…He separated the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:3)

Garden

Now the Lord God planted a garden in the east, in Eden. (Genesis 1:8)

Eve

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 1:18)

Snake

“Did God really say you must not eat from any tree in the garden?” (Genesis 3:1)

apple

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. (Genesis 3:6)
