My Appreciation Journal: Day 169+170


I am focused on me. I am strong. I love and am loved dearly. I am blessed. I live in success. I have 幸せ (happiness)~

I am grateful for the warm, sunny weekend

I am grateful for finally smelling the “scent” of spring, meaning that rainy season is finally over and that I can finally change my jacket to the seasonal one 🙂 Bye bye, winter jacket; hello, spring coats~!

I am grateful for the success on my final exam yesterday morning. I woke up way early for the 8:30 exam (I asked to write mine early to stealthily blend in with a bunch of undergrads, lol~) Through sheer determination and relentless persistance, I found the “legendary” manual accompaniment for the textbook (mwahaha) and worked through its questions as my main prep. Luckily, the exam borrowed many of its questions from it. This means A+++ for sure for Moekko sensei ^o^

I am grateful for the great workshift yesterday. Lol, when a girl replaced me in group room, she kept pulling the pen off my hand~ I found it funny because of the “pen” incidents I’ve had with a couple of people this last month 🙂 No, I did not “yell” or get angry. I simply let her take the pen off my hand 🙂

I am grateful for the Lord’s grace in the event of our family’s stolen van. Yesterday morning, my parents discovered that our van was taken. Thankfully, we did not have anything of value in the car, and the vehicle was quite broken. The only thing my parents are a little concerned about is my CD and computer monitor/speakers/mouse as well as my dad’s teaching bag. The computer accessories were very old, and though I do have a personal CD in the box, it was quite old and did not contain anything that could get extorted or used against me. Haha, if I remember correctly, it was a CD full of downloaded media files 🙂 Personally, I think the thieves got the worse end of it, because it is a rather broken-down vehicle, which means that they’re actually endangering their lives by driving it~ If we cannot find the vehicle, the insurance would pay us more than its worth anyway~ My mommy has also been grateful because the car was stolen right during the time my brother went out of town and my dad’s student miraculously called to change their session schedule, which means that that the timing worked out perfectly~ Even in this case the Lord is still watching over us 🙂

I am grateful for my friend’s help in posting up the ad to warn the thieves of the danger they are facing in driving the van. As thanks, I drew him another pic to post on FB~ It was a quickie, but hopefully he liked it~

carrotsI am grateful for my chiropractor friend coming back into my life – yay~! I really had gotten close to this gentle chiropractor and was so happy that he was actually the one who contacted me 🙂

To my him, my beloved familiar:

Thank you for our loving relationship

Thank you for believing in me

Thank you for having such a kind and gentle soul. I believe in you 🙂

You asked me how much longer I have till graduation. I told you many years still. You knew then you had to be patient with me. You were thinking about our future 🙂
