(sigh)~ I almost thought that I could enjoy the holidays but the days only seem to get harder, as I have to cope with my job and my research at the same time and trying to look for a decent place for next year. Tons of stuff to do. (sigh)~

Domine, miserere nobis

5th anniversary of my baptism... cannot believe it has been 5 years already.

Still vivid remember that day.... the people who were with me, shared my joy, and those who 'died' with me on that day, esp. the one person whom I'm closest to~

Pray that 5 yrs from now, the people whom I witnessed being baptized today, will cherish that memory and discover their growth and give thanks...

A poem for all of those who were with me then~

These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go with the multitude,
leading the procession to the house of God,
with shouts of joy and thanksgiving
among the festive throng.

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
My soul is downcast within me;
therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.

Happy Easter~

Busy week

I'm surprised that a lot of people actually read my blog and make comments to me personally. For those who've known me for a long period of time know that I really like to talk and send email. Just ask the people I served with in Galilee and they would tell you the bombardments of my long emails...

I doubt I will ever be so passionate about email writing though. I seriously wonder who still uses email for communication (not just notifying but actually communication a.k.a. a dialogue). Maybe I'm just spending too much time IM-ing and talking on the phone. Had I put some time into actual work I might just be actually productive!

The worst thing to hear though... of course.... is that I actually write better than I speak. (You know who you are.........) Haha, that's probably the worst thing that a canadian can hear, that after so many years of English education I still speak like a fob. Well... I wish I can speak like JFK but, those who know me know that I'm language-impaired... I'm better at typing language than speaking it. (That's why I choose to study CS)...

I'm in the process of finishing the AI of the Multi-player Chinese Checkers and the Man-vs-AI version should be out in 2 weeks. I will try to implement a Java Web Start so that those who are bored at work/school/whatever-you-do can play it. Of course, the best thing is to put it into client-server and run it multi-threadedly... and have it hosted online but I think it will be a long way to go. At least I have to finish my abc compiler optimization which I dropped for a week already!

For those who read my blog, I strongly encourage you to create your own blog... don't have to put your innermost thoughts... but at least put some thing that you want to share to your friends and improve your English in the meanwhile~

P.S. Ephesus coffee house is looming and for those old Galilee gang who read my blog.... I ask you to please, please, please drop me a line about some group games that we played before. We played tons but most of them I've forgotten already...
