for the lack of images on this site, thought i would post one that i just got through email.
S and J's engagement party a few weeks ago. J is extremely tall, as you can tell in the picture.
ok, nothing interesting to say because i'm so tired. i'm praying for more energy these days. i'm maxed out on my extra potent vitamin supplements and caffeine. work out, you say? well, sadly, there are no gold's gym in this city and i dare not run around this neighborhood until i have a chance to figure out where i'm running in the daylight.
perhaps, next weekend?
i miss many people :( ... oh sad me :)

ok, a quick update of my first 24 hrs... in wordwrap mode.
i have a pretty neat room with a balcony on the third floor of a very new house. i moved everything in one trip from my car thanks to all the people who helped. my new rommates are very welcoming. i remembered that i didn't any hangers for my clothes. went to a korean church EM service -- a first in a long time. reconnected with a few friends from the past. explored a new campus... felt like a small fish in a big pond.
observations: definitely more ghetto than i remembered but not too shabby :) had korean, thai and chinese food for the past three meals; i'm ready for some burgers and pizza now. philly girls are very down to earth. philly boys, especially asian boys, have this common look to them - all have semi-spiky hair, look pale and wear glasses. hmm. philly drivers are worse than LA drivers.
emotions: thankful. some underlying worries. more excitment.

sorry i've been neglectful.
it's been... time's been just a few minutes faster than I can handle, if that makes any sense.
someone in small group asked me, are you done packing? i gave her a blank stare. really, why am i moving? i hate packing. i dislike moving. despite what i wrote in my personal statement, i was afraid of making new friends whenever we moved.
received two unexpected emails today. didn't make any sense why i got them, and will remain as a mystery in my mind. to one of which, i knew what to say in response. to the other, had to take some chances and see.
i do like being a 4th year in medical school, but it's tough on me because it requires me to do multiple things at the same time. like scheduling things, calling people, organizing... normal life stuff. i'm a delinquent at stuff like that. i've been feeling overwhelmed that i dropped a nalgene bottle on my foot that left one of the toes quite blue and swollen. what's worse is my judgement to go see an acupuncturist (vs. the emergency dept) and was TORTURED for an hour. i don't like to talk about it because i'm still hurting psychologically from the experience.
maybe someday i'll share with y'all.
okie dokie, perhaps i'll log in next time in the city of... cheesesteaks?

for a second, i thought i found my future husband. you know, the korean version of steven curtis chapman. (and no, it's not the guitar genius on youtube, thank you very much.)
and i was thinking how i can make my interviews coincide with tour schedule so i can be a groupie and stand in front of the crowd to admire his music with adoring eyes... :)
but after thinking long and hard, i decided to move on. his receding hairline is bothersome to this vain girl.
that and i think he's married. oh shucks... ;)
sorry for being so sparse with entries. it's been a long week. maybe another week of this and i'll have a bit more time.
btw, i have a place to live in philly next month! more to come.
