Look what I found today in my computer. Interesting to see what I wrote for our “Senior Gift” 2 years ago! I wonder if I would write anything differently now…
things you learned from college that impacted your walk the most
You NEED accountability partners. No one is more righteous than another, so we can all relate when we share our weaknesses. Never feel like you’re alone in your walk with God! That’s why God gave us brothers and sisters!
something you learned about the character of God through college
He is forever faithful!
advice regarding: relationships, school, UCSD, college life, etc.
Be content (but not complacent) with ALL that He has given you, and trust that He will guide your way (one of my favorite verses: Proverbs 16:9 “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.”)! God has a sense of humor and sometimes bombards you with random surprises when you least expect it.
if you could go back and do something different, what would it be (not necessarily regrets)
I would have put myself outside of my comfort zone more often and not be afraid to initiate hangouts with older/younger brothers and sisters. I realized that I’m never going to be 100% done studying anyway (or done watching dramas, haha)!
advice to people in your major?
Communication is an awesome major, but (useful/challenging) internships would have helped a lot more – or a double major in something less theoretical. Always harass your TAs/Professors during office hours! It will not only help you boost that B+ to an A-, you’ll also be able to build relationships with them – you never know if they’ll offer you a job opportunity!
recipes, websites, etc. you like
I make a lot of no-name Chinese dishes. You can pretty much do this with any kind of vegetables. Here’s how (my mom taught me) to do it:
- Chop all the vegetables up (preferably around the same size so they cook at the same rate)
- Heat the pan (set it to Medium-High), put in a bit of oil (depends on the amount of vegetables you’re making), and some chopped/minced garlic.
- When you see the garlic sizzling, it’s time to throw your vegetables in!
- If there’s not enough oil, you can put a little bit of water (it helps steam your veggies ready), a pinch of salt/pepper, and throw the lid of the pan on
- Voila! It should be ready in around 5-8 minutes!
i don’t get it.
but those who own up to those mistakes are the ones i am deeply encouraged by.
