Healthy Living: Realzing

I am going to hang out with my friends, and we are eating Korean food today! :D YAY!

But.. I gotta post this .. and i’ll explain the significant behind it later :)

From SNSD Website

“And right there and then, I knew I had found a place I belong amidst the billions of others that hurry about in a race against time. A race to fulfill every inner desire before we exhale and become nothing more than tracks that once roamed the Earth.

Because our moment of existence was nothing more than a breath. Let’s make the most out of it.”

& ..

  A PSALM OF LIFE

      WHAT THE HEART OF THE YOUNG MAN
                    SAID TO THE PSALMIST

    TELL me not, in mournful numbers,

        Life is but an empty dream ! —

    For the soul is dead that slumbers,

        And things are not what they seem.

    Life is real !   Life is earnest!

        And the grave is not its goal ;

    Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

        Was not spoken of the soul.

    Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,

        Is our destined end or way ;

    But to act, that each to-morrow

        Find us farther than to-day.

    Art is long, and Time is fleeting,

        And our hearts, though stout and brave,

    Still, like muffled drums, are beating

        Funeral marches to the grave.

    In the world’s broad field of battle,

        In the bivouac of Life,

    Be not like dumb, driven cattle !

        Be a hero in the strife !

    Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant !

        Let the dead Past bury its dead !

    Act,— act in the living Present !

        Heart within, and God o’erhead !

    Lives of great men all remind us

        We can make our lives sublime,

    And, departing, leave behind us

        Footprints on the sands of time ;

    Footprints, that perhaps another,

        Sailing o’er life’s solemn main,

    A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,

        Seeing, shall take heart again.

    Let us, then, be up and doing,

        With a heart for any fate ;

    Still achieving, still pursuing,

        Learn to labor and to wait.

Healthy Living: Balance

Friday, August 19th, 2011

I think I have found my balance. Or.. at least I am trying to discover it.

This summer, I have been through many ups and down. And I really learn something from it.

At first, I thought that with eliminated time, it wasn’t hard to get a A in a class. However, this theory was wrong, I realized that “time” can be a friend or an enemy. I realize that during the first part of my summer, I had too much time on my hand, so I use those time to play games and study. But eventually, I got addicted to games.

So, “too much time” = can be a bad thing. So, I had to do something with my time. Thus, I started reading books, going to the gyms, setting academic goals for myself. And lastly.. I would like to take up a hobby.

I want to learn piano again. Its a skill I want to keep throughout life, and play myself a nice song on those days that I feel like listening to music.

And also, I want to try video animation again. I always like animation as a little kid. It was a useful skill that I had picked up after quitting maplestory a few years back. Surprisingly, learning how to edit video has gotten me to many places I never realized I would ended up. Even though, video editing has nothing to do with medicine. It has gotten me a leadership position in high school, and then that leadership position provided me the opportunity to joining the UCI premed summer program. And before I know it, I became invovled in the healthy communities and had met many doctors and gained many mentors. All that through …video editing? haha :) It really do takes me places.

So, to balance out my summer time, and using it productively. I wanted to pick up these skills again. I feel that I owe myself something to do on my free time that I can enjoy. Gaming is no longer an option for me, so I trying to find an alternative. Healthy Living is about balance. And just as I learn to manage to balance my meal, and (hopefully) my weight, I need to start to learn how to balance my life. So, I can be happy and still do the things I love. (studying, spending time with parents & friends, and enjoy the events that comes my way :] )

I’m gonna make a new page to keep a track record of my video animation release. Check it out if you got time :)

It’s a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V!! (I’m kinda geeky when it come to technology! :D I simply love it!) But no matter what, when it comes to photo quality, I am still loyal to my #1 baby..my one and only Canon REBEL XS! :) That’s the camera I use to do all of my Photoshoot! :D

THe BAD: MY midterm is coming.. that mean its time to buckle down and prepare for the midterm.
