Hargh! I'm annoyed...I forgot to bring my gym shorts today I just discovered. My body screams for some exercise after sitting in cubicle all day. I think maybe I'll stop by the Downtown Sailing Center, pick up my sailing text for next Monday, get my gym shorts, and go over to Hopkins gym. Yeah, not what I originally planned...but sounds like a good alternative sans gym shorts.
ATLANTA (Reuters) - Marlboro, the world's No. 1 selling brand of cigarettes, contains significantly higher levels of a cancer-causing agent than its rivals when purchased in many of the largest markets overseas, U.S. scientists say.
Tests by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (news - web sites) found that the U.S. brand contained higher amounts of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) than other locally available cigarettes in 11 of 13 countries.

That's U.S. diplomacy for ya ;P

Psalm 121


A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills-
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD ,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip-
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you-
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm-
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Comforting isn't it?
Oh...today is a beautiful beautiful day! My window was rolled down, my hair was flapping into a mess, and my mind was dwelling on the goodness of the Lord. There was a brief moment when that stopped though. In front of me was a dusty black Mercedes C240. If anyone has a luxury car, he should wash it. Actually if anyone has a black car, he should wash it! Anyways. I'm going to Best Buy to get an adapter during lunch time for my new MP3/CD player. Need to go out and enjoy this weather while it lasts. ;)

Just got back from lunch with La Mancha. We saw Jennifer there on break from SSA. I finally have my new CD/MP3 player that has been sitting in Mancha's car. I actually have A LOT of work today, but will be like everyone else in this building take my sweet time to finish it. I'm looking foward to Friday, TGIF!!! Saturday will look something like this:
1) morning prayer at 6:30 AM (Hopefully!)
2) Sunday school teacher's Clean-Up Day for Friends of Jesus
3) Help Brothers move
4) Hip hop class at noon
5) Help brothers move some more

Prayer, lifting and serving, dancing, lifting and serving some more. Such is the life. ;)
La Mancha, call Cindy Chan if she hasn't contacted you yet about touring her apartment.

Resubmitting my dumb FAFSA form again. I submitted 2002-2003 for some reason.

Yeah, my dad is an art fanatic and is taking classes at Pasadena Community College in it. They went to USC/LAC Hospital, where the art instructor and pathologist gave them an anatomy lesson they never forgot. My dad wanted to buy a life-size skeleton, but needless to say, my mother was against that idea. Creepy alright...I used to scare my little brother and myself by telling him that late at night the Cross in our living room would start to turn by itself. Hehe...luckily my imagination isn't so wild. Which reminds me...I want to sign up for that Fells Point Ghost walk, should be interesting history to say the least.
Dr. So, you misdiagnosed.

Ok...nevermind. ;P

I called them up, and found out the approximate cost to be $4000, incl. airfare and everything else. Since this is an international medical missions opportunity, need to look for scholarships that might exist to help me with the funds.
4-6 weeks on top of the world helping the sick sounds real good to me.
Oh my Yawn! I was looking foward to a 3 O'Clock meeting with CDC just so I would something but that's been canceled. Oh well...methinks I'll leave earlier today.
I am I, BriGuy,
The Lord of LaMancha,
My destiny calls, and I go!
And the wild winds of fortune
Shall carry me onward ... To wither so ever they blow ...
Wither so ever they blow ...
Onward to glory I go!
Pancho, to De La Mancha's new blogsite!



If his middle name were 'A' instead of J...and you switched the BR with A.S
BRian A. So = well, you figure it out. hehehe

I was showing my roommate some BoA clips last night. He was really impressed when I showed him her songs sung in Korean, Japanese, English, and Chinese. Plus she can dance well and she's cute. Obviously an intelligent girl...according to my roommate, if she's also down-to-earth, then I need to travel to Korea to meet this woman. ;)
Rest assured, my type for a wife isn't the asian popstar kind...but she did inspire me to try some hip hop dancing.

That's so cool...you can order transcripts from Hopkins registrar online now through gettranscript.com...$2 fee but worth saving a trip up there.
Hmmm...me smells another blogger site coming soon!
A little story from the weekend, on God's providence:

At 3:30 AM Monday morning, I received a phone call from a lady who found my wallet. I was shocked by this news as I had no idea I was missing it--thought it was in my backpack...she found it on a street nearby my apartment. Then she took it home and looked for my phone number. Calling information, she got my number an hour later and told me I could pick it up. So later that morning, I met up with her and she gave me my wallet. She kept saying how God blesses those that are honest and takes care of another. Amazingly, all my ID, credit cards, etc were still there! There was no foul play recorded on the credit cards either. Only the 16 bucks in cash were stolen. I think I must have dropped my wallet from my backpack, coming back from volleyball.
She told me that she was walking towards her home three blocks west, and saw my wallet in an alley. She even left a message later Monday to see if everything was okay with me! This was in POURING rain. I am thinking of an appropriate gift to give her.

It just encourages me how the tie among God's people is SO strong that it MUST be divine.

Okay...The End!
