I hope everyone had a great time with their family and/or friends during Christmas! This Christmas has been the most chill one out of all the past ones I’ve had. Christmas Eve was more hectic because we visited our relatives in SoCal. We’ve been driving back and forth from NorCal to SoCal for the past week and it’s been really exhausting. Sometimes I wish we could teleport to the place we want to go to. Even being a passenger gets kind of tiring too. On Christmas Eve, I didn’t even get a proper amount of sleep. I slept for an hour and I couldn’t sleep in the car because my parents wanted me to talk to them while they were driving. It was so difficult trying to stay awake during the church service, but at least I survived (woohoo). There were so many people at church. The candle(lit) service was so good. I can’t believe it was just one service out of the eighteen more services excluding the other campuses. Imagine how many other churches were celebrating Christmas. It’s amazing to think that many people were celebrating the birth of Jesus. Oh yeah, my sister almost dropped wax on me because she was also tired haha.
My sister graduated last week and it was great! I’m really proud of her and can’t wait to see the great things she’ll accomplish as a Civil Engineer. Wow, I don’t think we talked or saw each other a lot this semester. Probably because we were both busy with school and she was trying to graduate a semester early. Sometimes I wish we could talk more, but it’s been hard trying to find the time to do so. Hanging out with her is even harder because she lives in NorCal and I’m in SoCal. Maybe over break we can have a road trip or something.
I can’t even comprehend how she survived because I tried Engineering before and I just didn’t like it. It’s probably because of physics hahaha. Engineering is challenging and I give kudos to those who are able to continue to pursue the field. The guest speaker for the commencement was a premed major and she switched to engineering out of nowhere. She moved to a different state and university even if she got into med school. Throughout her journey, she was on her all time high at the time then experienced an all time low. She wanted to give up, but didn’t realize that the best was yet to come. After being able to have patents, she realized that there was a blessing in disguise behind her failure. It really inspired me because she said that you shouldn’t waste your time doing something you don’t love. I’ve switched my majors multiple times like my sister. Business, Engineering, Computer Science, then Pre-Med. I know it’s a huge step being a premed major, but I know that as long as I love what I do then the rest will follow and God will guide me throughout the way 🙂
I know I know. I’m crazy for switching majors multiple times. My parents even told me that I should’ve just went to a community college first so I wouldn’t have wasted some of my time at school. A lot of people said that it wasn’t time wasted because of the community and Bible classes at the university I’m attending. It’s never too late to do something that I love. I really didn’t want to focus on the salary of the job I was going to major in which is why it took me so long to figure out what my major should be. It might change. I don’t know. God is mysterious, but if He still has doors open for premed then I’ll continue to serve Him in that area.
