You know it’s all love. I wouldn’t have gotten you anything if it wasn’t otherwise. It just sucks because I was excited to give it to you, only to discover you just got it! Maybe I should’ve told you beforehand, but then it wouldn’t have been a surprise.
I guess I got myself a new tie then.
Re: Just The Facts

Q:17, 35, 49, 84, 93, 108, 117
Based off the questions from here.
17- Say 8 facts about your body:
- I’m bald, and I’m fine with that. I’ve always shaved my head as a kid because growing up people made fun of my afro.
- Ironically, I’m pretty hairy for an Asian.
- I’m not yet at the fit level I want. Give me a couple more months!
- I’ve got a big butt.
- I’ve got a perfectly round head.
- That’s all I can think of for now because other things are opinions about my body, NOT facts.
35- Say 3 facts about your personality:
- I’m a perfectionist. That is a good and a bad thing.
- I’m big on hugging people, although I’ve learned to control my need to hug people who are uncomfortable with hugging.
- I love spending quality time with people.
49- Do you have any phobias?
I used to be scared of needles, but after donating platelets so much, I’m fine with them. I’m a bit claustrophobic and clourophbic.
84- What’s your favorite television show?
I love “Fringe” and am sad it’s in its final season. I’ve taken a liking to British show though: “Doctor Who,” “Foyle’s War,” “Downton Abbey,” “Luther” and “Sherlock.” It’s difficult for me to tell you which one is my favorite.
93- The best and the worst childhood memories:
I had several great childhood memories. Some of the best include going deep sea fishing with my dad, touring a Coast Guard ship with my dad, and going to several Dodgers games with my dad. Now that I’m older, my dad and I don’t really do much together.
One of my worst childhood memories was nearly burning my apartment down simply because I forgot I left the stove on.
108- A reason you’ve lied to a friend:
I lied to a friend to protect that friend’s feelings. But when the truth came out, it hurt the friend even more. Since then, I learned that the truth is better—even if it hurts. Although, I still try to tell the truth in the most appropriate way possible.
117- Do you believe in love at first sight?
I’m a romantic at heart, but I don’t really believe in love at first sight. I think physical attraction can only go so far. You have yet to learn how to deal with the rough situations with that person.
Re: Fuller Seminary
illustratingthegloryofgod said: You go to Fuller? Awesome! How is it?
Fuller is interesting. It gets a reputation of being theologically “liberal” because of the school’s stance of allowing women as ministers among other things. Of course, schools like Masters and Biola’s Talbot School of Theology are considered some of the most theologically “conservative.” But if you were a student at Fuller, you’ll notice that both your classmates and your professors represent a large wide range between “liberal” Christians and “conservative” Christians. Fuller’s process of selecting professors is to have this wide range so that we (students and professors) could leave behind what is considered “liberal” or “conservative” and focus on what is Biblical.
Personally, I consider myself “conservative.” But I appreciate that I’m at a school that challenges me rather than thinks like me so that I know where I stand Biblically.
On another note, I love the fact that Fuller is located in Pasadena, CA (though there are campuses elsewhere). Pasadena is minutes from LA and other Southern Californian places. It’s a beautiful city with great weather.
The class room size is perfect. Some classes have 20 people, while others can get up to 50. But because of the “small” size (I went to UCLA where classes had 400 people), I have a better and more personable experience.
People-wise—I’m still learning to balance work, school, and social life. I find that it’s a lot more challenging to make friends and develop friendships at Fuller compared to my undergraduate experience. This is due to many things—people are married, have families, have jobs, have responsibilities—so socializing isn’t too important for some people. I’m currently in my third quarter, and I’m finding a sense of community. You just have to put extra effort to get it.
prestonsam said: Fashion show? ):
Nope. If it was a fashion show, I would’ve invited you. It was an event for Social Media Week. It’s called the Social Media Enterprise Panel—I got to meet the CEO and Founders of companies that use their businesses for social good (also known as “social entrepreneurship”).
