My flight from LAX to Detroit, Michigan included a layover in Houston, Texas. I sat next to a nice 58-year-old fellow named David who was apprehensive about flying. Continue reading “David, met (#17).”
Long post, be warned.
Three months ago, I flew into Oakland International Airport and didn’t know what I was getting myself into. These months have flown by fast (pun intended). Continue reading “Berkeley: what else to say but thanks?”

Quick blog before I sleep. I spent an hour typing a blog last weekend only to have the browser crash. Since the Yahoo takeover of Tumblr, the pages no longer save as draft. Shame. That was a long post that we’ll never, ever read.
Three months ago, I was hoping for my future to be on the east coast or in Asia. Continue reading “From San Francisco, with love.”
On Sunday, 8/4/13, I watched the Citi Open 2013 finals. I went with fellow friend Jina and it was our first time watching live professional tennis (with the exception of last week).
We first watched the men’s doubles final. Front row seats, are you kidding me?
Today started off as a good day. I slept the most I have in the past three weeks and woke up at 10:30am. I went to the Cal Alumni Club annual BBQ in Virginia with a great turnout. I ate damn good food and conversed with past, current, and future Cal Bears. Continue reading “The Disadvantage of an Elite Education: “Ahh, is that what the rankings say?” (2/2).”

Yesterday, I took a break for half of the day and volunteered at two local efforts. From 9-12pm, I helped prepare salads for homeless people at D.C. Central Kitchen. I met many interesting people from different sectors of life: an army Captain getting his masters degree from George Washington University, a woman who worked in politics for 26 years, and a woman who was born in North Carolina and moved to DC to live and work.

A friend of mine shared a video of a Muslim political journalist debunking Western conceptions on his religion. I think it was a valuable talk which requires further discussion. I learned something from him, and I would like to extend my thoughts to the public. Continue reading “A discussion on modern religious debates: the simplicity of such a complicated topic.”
Tonight, people around the world watched the Muhammad Ali, the Roy Jones Jr., the Mike Tyson fall from the top. We watched a man get debunked as immortal. We watched someone appear human. Continue reading “Anderson Silva taught us a valuable lesson tonight.”
