Cousins

They get more interesting as they age. Maybe it’s because now that we’re all adults, we have more to talk about with each other. Maybe it’s just because we’re ready to talk. Growing up, my paternal cousins and I were never close. They grew up playing with gongfu fighting, Nintendo and Sega games, none of […]

Grateful

Sometimes, one person can make all the difference. I’ve been in a quandary work-wise for a while. It’s a long story which I won’t go into detail here. But suffice to say that after having come so far in my thesis proposal, I’ve learned that the topic is not quite feasible. Why? Mainly because there […]

Ann-atom-y

This just in from Toronto. I’ve heard from my roving pigeon-hating reporter in Toronto that a certain legally-inclined friend of mine decided to call me an atom. Why?

"Do not yoke…"

In the last few days different friends of mine have encountered the question/problem of a believer + non-believer relationship. It’s always been a sticky question that Christians have to deal with. What do you if, as a believer, you fall in love with a non-believer and you’re advised by others not to pursue a relationship? […]

Broken Trust

Having a trust broken is one of the most painful experiences. I’m sure we’ve all been on both sides of the fence – of the one breaking the trust, as well as the one being deceived. How do we react? How do we deal with it? When we’re the one being deceived, righteous indignation, hurt […]
