Phew!

Last week was busy busy busy, with work work work.

When Friday afternoon finally hit, I looked at my desk and saw that I had at least 5 identical cups of coffee sitting all about.

And for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out which one was the one I had bought that morning. So I took a gamble and grabbed the one closest to me and took a healthy swig.

Mistake.

The good news is, it totally woke me up. Nothing like 3-day-old cold coffee hitting your gullet in the middle of Friday afternoon. That chill up your spine can keep you going for another good 6 hours alone. Red Bull, eat your heart out.

I watched the Avengers Movie on opening weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie.

But it got me thinking…

The Avengers could really use one more member on their team…and I knew just who would do the job.

TO BE CONTINUED…

My long work hours are finally over! (For now!)

So now, I get to catch up on my sleep. As you know, sleep is very important to me.

And my body tends to seek it out one way or another. Many times unintentionally.

My mom was telling some of my friends a story about how my narcoleptic ways preceded my working days…it all started when I was a wee little Whang.

True story. I was a heavy sleeper, and would actually sleep through falls like that. Fortunately, my mom would usually catch me before I would eat it.

Anyways, with my schedule opening up, I’m hoping to get into the habit of updating more than once a week again.

Thanks for your patience, my lovelies!

Is it just me, or was January a really really long month?

Even after the hustle and bustle of the holidays died down, the combination of work, fundraising, studying, church activities, and getting ready for my February trip to Haiti has generated a little bit of stress.

And (unfortunately) this week, it’s beginning to show on my face. I finally decided to take a minute to just stop what I was doing and get things under control. Mini-Grace tagged along. Again.

Ew. I wish my face understood that I am way too old to be breaking out like a teenager. Despite temporarily deactivating my Facebook account, which has not-so-surprisingly opened up my schedule considerably, I still find myself wishing that there were more hours in the day.

On the bright side,  I am super pumped about returning to Haiti! I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with my church in order to partner up with Grace International (as well as another non-profit called Beyond All Boundaries) on a much larger scale. This trip coming up at the end of February will symbolize the start of something amazing for Haiti, especially for the children.

[If you are in the DC/VA/MD area and are interested in joining me on future trips to Haiti, check out the pamphlet I made below and shoot me an e-mail!]

As ususal, I love your faces. If you live around the DC area, enjoy the beautiful weather this week~

I’m alive!

Sorry for not posting for a while. I realize that over the past two weeks, after the hullaballoo of the winter season, I’ve been incredibly uninspired!

I even tried Googling how I could possibly enhance my creative brain activity, and stumbled across this:

Which made me think…and I’ve come to realize that I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately.

And the effects of which are causing me to go a little…weird.

 

True story. I’m so ashamed. The office flag may not have been red, but my feelings about it certainly were.

What are some of the effects you experience with lack of sleep, and are they as weird as mine?

I’m 25 and I feel so alive!

I had the best birthday ever today. Which is saying a lot, because last year’s birthday was pretty sweet.

It started on Saturday, when I got to have the most amazing lunch extravaganza with my family at Azul 17, where the owner gave us a royal treatment to the most delicious Mexican food I have ever had in my life.

If you’re ever in the Columbia, Maryland area, I highly recommend it. And if you want to see live Salsa dancing, be sure to make a reservation on Saturday night at 10 pm, and you’ll be given an extra treat~

On Sunday, my friend at New Hope surprised me with a beautiful birthday cake, and today, I was treated out for a delicious lunch at work by two of my co-workers.

And then, my other co-workers went even further by giving me beautiful flowers, cupcakes, and a whole lot of love. I also think that my face was a shade of maroon for the entirety of their gift giving. It was the first time I had ever been given flowers as a gift…I was incredibly grateful!

At the end of a wonderful day at work, I waited at the bus stop to catch my ride home.

Unfortunately, the beautiful snow that had been falling earlier had turned into very cold rain, the bus was 20 minutes late…and I forgot my umbrella yet again.

And that’s when I got an unexpected birthday gift…from a complete stranger~

I let her know that she and her kind gesture were like a surprise birthday present from God on my birthday, and how thankful I was. She laughed and told me that she was holding her umbrella anyway, and that it wasn’t a big deal, but it was a big deal for me…so random lady at the bus stop? I thank you for your kindness~

25 never felt so good and I am so blessed. Thank you all, and good night!

PS: Happy 8th Birthday to Mini-Grace~

Phew! 2011 is OVAH, and 2012 is HERE!

According to the WordPress Summary Report I got yesterday:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

(Click the image above for the full statistics!)

That’s a lot of love. Thank you all for making 2011 the most successful year yet for my blog!

Since Christmas, I have been reflecting on the past year, and how much has changed in my life since last January

  1. In January, I rang in the New Year with my friends in New Jersey, and spent the rest of the month battling icy sidewalks, broken apartment heaters, and searching for my snow-buried car.
  2. In February, I continued to deal with crazy NYC Metro incidents, and Starbucks came out with their new “Trenta”-sized coffee.
  3. In March, I talked dirty to the Starbucks baristas, got bitten by a Vampider, and packed my bags to move back to the MD/DC area to work as an architect!
  4. In April, I shot my very first firearm, and shared trade secrets, including how to avoid bedtime bugs and how to make their very own photo comics~
  5. In May, I enjoyed my mother’s amazing cooking, tried to bring sexy back, almost accidentally killed my brother, and went fishing for river monsters.
  6. In June, I practiced my golf swing at the range, and tried to convince a stranger that I didn’t fart in an elevator.
  7. In July, my family went to Orlando’s Islands of Aventure, Faith gave a shot at making her own comics, and I pondered deeply on what my Prius would look like if it was a Transformer
  8. In August, I broke down and finally got myself a new computer, and experienced one of the most disgusting things in my life, and it was all my dad’s fault.
  9. In September, I went fossil hunting with my dad, helped my grandfather get Sex on the Beach, and had a stranger’s butt too close for comfort to my face.
  10. In October, I got myself some new glasses, and learned how to deal with my Dad’s creeping and my Mom’s backseat Facebook driving.
  11. In November, I began my very first Mini-Series comics (in which my own boss cameo’d), celebrated 11/11/11 at 11:11 am, and started my own Non-Profit Organization for Haiti by selling my comics.
  12. Finally, in December, I got to try my hand out again as a photographer, gingerbread architect, and singer/dancer.

What in the world could 2012 possibly bring? 2011 had a new job, new lifestyle, new locale, new friends, and a new look for me. I lost 15 lbs, started a non-profit that raised over $1000 in a month’s time, worked for a job that I absolutely love, and am the happiest I have been in a long time. I have no idea, but I have a really good feeling that God is still going to outdo 2011~

My own goals for 2012 include becoming fully licensed as an architect by the end of 2012, taking the New Mercy Project to the next level, and Lord willing (as corny as it may sound), finding love.

And no worries, lovely readers. I’ll be sure to take you all on this journey with me. Here’s to 2012~

새해 복 많이 받으세요!

This past weekend has been one of the best I’ve had all year.

And after I gave Mini-Grace her present, I think that she can probably say the same thing.

Thanks for your patience~ I’m back!

What a month! December has been pretty crazy with work, Haiti, and getting ready for the Christmas Musical.

But~ I am so excited about all of these projects and what’s to come.

2012 is going to be a great year, I can feel it!

Love your faces, my lovely readers. Thanks for an amazing year, and keep posted for more comics and videos!

Looks like my week-long vacation is going to need a short extension.

Sorry! With end-of-year work deadlines and a Christmas musical coming up , the finale to the mini-series will have to wait until Thursday.

(PS: you are ALL invited to the musical! Come and see me try to dance! Emphasis on “try!” Hit the link above for directions and times~)

Until then, enjoy the smooth sounds of some of my very talented friends from Bridgeway and New Hope.

Love your faces!

It’s been a bit of a crazy week for me.

I apologize, my lovely readers, but Mini-Grace and I are going to take a week-long hiatus to get our bearing’s straight and catch up on some sleep~

The mini-series conclusion will be up next Sunday! Love your faces!

PS: 20,000 hits in a year and a half! Thank you for reading!!!
