Chuyện văn hoá

Cách suy nghĩ không còn như vậy nữa. Cách tư duy, cách phản biện, hay cách đáp trả, không còn như vậy nữa. Mình thay đổi rồi và sẽ không bao giờ quay lại là mình của trước kia được nữa. Sáng thức dậy nhận được vài ba cái tin nhắn. Một trong số đó […]

A work of art

Another day of snow. A good time to write, I guess. I would start with this: If someone watch a day of your life on mute, what message would it speak? Would it look like a work of art?My answer is yes and no. I cannot actually imagine my life on mute or imagine myself […]

Green garden

The bus engine stopped in the middle of the street, and we all were told to wait for about thirty minutes before the “rescuing” bus come picking us up. I live half an hour away from the main bus station. I did not say anything. I did not complain, even though I was worried that […]

write and recharge my battery

I have been… Running more lately. Reading more lately. Working out more lately. I am becoming better in many things – finishing homework before bedtime, being on time for work and classes, being open to advice from others, and changing those few bad habits bit by bit every day. But the weather has not been […]

Being nice is a choice

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset I’d like to share some Bible verses that I really, really love. I am inspired by these, and I want to keep on living my life following God’s words, his words in these verses specifically. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn […]

Things happen for a reason – why I am such an odd.

I have met so many people saying I am a weird girl. I do things in a very different way that they cannot understand, but no one ever asks for reasons. I always assume that even if I speak up, I will never be heard, just because I am an odd. But the truth shall […]

Being that “odd” – in quotation mark not because it has a different meaning, but because it is simply different.

(Other perspectives) An odd starts its journey.  I am too used to being an odd that I gradually forget how to blend in.  And sometimes the Devil in me say because I’m too weak that I try to be a different kind.  I have never bothered. But oftentimes I would stop and ask why never […]

Yêu thương vô hình – Invisible love

(Other perspectives) Invisible but reflective.  As I grow older, love, to me, becomes more invisible, even though it has always been.  I grew up in a Catholic family. My grandparents witnessed the love of God, and since then following God is what every person in my family has to do. I believe in God, so […]

It’s who you are.

It’s getting colder every day, and I am surprised about how well I have known this place. I moved here a year ago, in tears. I wasn’t happy about this change, because I went to a good high school in Vietnam where I met all the soulmates I had ever wished for. And leaving all […]
