and there are things that can only be balanced when there are two or more people
imagine trying to write your university assignments in the foreign language you took.
that is what is like to be trying to express your views in something now your mother tongue.
i struggle with learning new languages. and by God's grace, i grew up speaking.. mainly.. only english. well.. bahasa kicks in once in a while, but rarely.. apart from that, i'm practically a mute if i were to convey whats in my mind.
(okay, so i shouldn't blame God that i'm too lazy to learn chinese)
anyways, going back to the point.
they say that education is the key to break the cycle of poverty.
i wonder how many of my course mates that i sit alongside in my classroom are actually interested at all in being there. its as if, they dont really care about the degree...
should i just not bother about everyone else around me, and just focus on myself as an individual, study hard, get good grades, work, get money, buy a big house and a nice car.... maybe have a lovely happy family
what about others around me. should i ever care. if they aren't wiling to help themselves, then why should i?
well thats not true, i'm pretty sure that there are some people who care very much about their studies, its just that they struggle with it. language
but they've been given 9 years to study for it in primary and highschool.. shouldn't we already be on the same level of grasping it? how different a level in proficientcy and command of the language get
you cant even spell proficiency right, anyways... well it really depends who your teach was in highschool. you were blessed. coming from a town. good teachers. who actually spoke english well.
yeah my room mates laugh and chuckle when they say just two or three lines... erm.. words of english. it... amuses me to see they're jovial smiles. yet it pains my heart. to wonder if they can be helped.
didn't you ever have that dream: to just go into a kampung and sit down by the wooden stairs. and the children will rush to gather around you... sitting down, staring up in awe... as you pass down what you have.

A greedy politician in the government will cause the destruction of a nations future.
Buying votes by bribing its citizens. A false image if wealth
Finally some one on their own side of the fence has spoken out against his own people. Well not finally lah, he's been at it for some time now.
Don't just follow the bureaucracy blindly. Don't be a mute stone following the kicking tradition and laws set by men.

What does it mean to be that? Totally devoid of funds? Unable to work my lecturer says.. In dept... Someone else says...
Well it made me think about love and grace.
Am I bankrupt and devoid of love and grace? No. But I would be apart from Christ.. The one true unending source of it.
Yes people might be able yo provide it... But not all the time, not in all circumstances, not in all co conditions..
Richness ( not in terms of money) is given in the fullness of it all.. Found by the one who brought everything into being. The Creator.
And because He is my Father.. Just like how our earthly father provides for us, so I know He will provide for me

Why do gods in all religions desire.. Or demand a sacrifice to be made to them. Be it abaddon from the wicker man.
But they all demand blood to be spilled and things to die...
Our God however... Paid the price himself... Died and shed his blood on the cross.. And rose again on the third day.
No other God resurrected like that, others reincarnate or get reborn.. Not Jesus
He is a living god. One whose not defeated by death nor bound to the grave
Hence, as a living God... He demands a living sacrifice...
He calls us to give our all to him... As a sacrifice for following Him. It pleases Him. Carry your cross daily... Keep focus on Christ. Eyes fixed on that which matters.

- When one has a soar throat and there is constantly phlegm (hard to spell!) being made, thne one wants to spit it out as much as he can right? (no i'm not gonna ask you to swallow it).
- what i think is this, after spitting out the yellow-greenish phlegm, prevent yourself from spitting in 1 or 2 hours. Why? because the theory is this, that phlegm contains anti-bacterial properties and kills the germs. if you spit it out too often, then the germs dont die and the mucus is always white/transparent.
-its like.. dont waste your body making goo. keep it inside you longer for a better result in healing...
on phones and other devices. since now they have 500mA and 2.1Amps. or the general 1Amp.. all devices plug into microUSB which is conviniet. however, i believe that the slower you charge the phone's batteries the longer they will last (not just long term, but the moment you unplug it). why so? i duno. but i find that if i charge my moto G with a 2.1Amp output.. it dies faster than when i use a slower 750mAmp
active boys who exercise regularly sweat more easily than people who live sedentary lifestyles. its like.. if you usually go running, the momment your body start doing walking movements, it triggers the sweat glands to go crazy and start preparing for a workout. or well atlesat thats what your body is condition to think your doing to do.
and people who sit all day long at home, can walk miles without breaking a sweat, because: one, either thier pores are stuck/mulfuntioning due to the lack of use of it... or two, they sweat galnds just dont anticipate the owner to do sports. which... he isnt going to do.. becaseu he's just walking to the bus...
well this three theories are totally unsound. they have no scitific backing. and they are just written for fun.
