Christmas is the happiest and merriest day of the year because of all of the presents to buy and open and all of the time spent with family and friends. It is a very busy season and many wait a whole year just for this time, but i think that there is so much more to Christmas than one would usually think. When you consider what happened that cold winter night in a manger, it is one of the most wonderful and loving things that God has done for us. He sent his one and only precious Son with the purpose of dying a horrible death so that we humans could once again have a relationship with God. He loves us that much, but what’s more is that he is so humble that he lived a life equal to one that we live, instead of coming with all of the glory that he actually deserves. Christmas is a wonderful time to give and receive, a wonderful time to spend time with family and friends, but it is also a time to rejoice and celebrate what God did for us, celebrate his greatest act of love towards us. so open your presents and spend time with family and friends, but while you do all of that, celebrate what God did for us because he loves us so much.
I enjoy those times when i look back at my life and i realize how lucky i am to have the life i have, to know the people i know, to have seen the things i have seen, to have felt the emotions i have felt, to have listened to the music i’ve heard so far, to have gone through the things i have gone through, to be loved by the God i also love and so i laugh and smile during those times knowing that there is much more to come. There were many days when it seemed like there was nothing to live for, but i realize that even those days are now something i can look back and smile about, because everything in the past has led to this, and right now this is so worth it.
yup, it’s already the end of first quarter of my second year in college. Everyone says that the weeks went by so fast and yet there were also days where it was a struggle to get through the day. I was actually done on wednesday, but i lagged it and now am back home writing this haha.
It was a good quarter, full of procrastination, desperate studying and of course, lots of fun and laughter with my friends.
Living in an apartment with friends is very different compared to living in a dorm with 50 other people. You don’t get to see your friends as often and hang out but it is what it is.
I don’t have much to write, maybe something will come up later.
time to bum it out and do whatever i want during winter break. :]
