Speaking of Marriage...

Life is full of humor. As soon as I finished writing the previous post, I received an email from a guy on LDSlinkup who wrote me the following message:

miss, it is with joy and pride that I address you. on this site I'm looking to join the woman I want to marry after the discovery of your picture I could not stay without writing you miss I want you to be my wife, I am a member of the church thanks you.

Ask and ye shall receive! Where do I sign up?

The Fortuneteller Tells

So, I went to go get my fortune read again because I was so curious about where I would end up next year. My co-workers and I went to this famous fortuneteller after work. I applied to Columbia, Harvard, UCLA and University of Washington. He said I will be rejected by Columbia and University of Washington; have 50% chance of getting into Harvard; and will be accepted by UCLA with open arms. Well, I was just glad he didn't say I will be rejected by Harvard. At least there is some hope.

He also said that I will tempt or be tempted by a man in June (right before I leave Korea! Amazing timing, Life!). That seems like the highlight of my new year other than the fact that I will be starting school again. (I am soooo excited about that!)The fortuneteller also warned me that if I don't get married by 2016 or 2017, it would truly suck because I would probably have a very difficult time finding someone. All the fortunetellers I've talked to always tell me how hard it would be for me to find a man like I need reminding. (Oh yeah? Really? Tell me about it.)

So, there it is. If the fortuneteller is right, I'll end up in Los Angeles with a "Will Work For Marriage" sign by the freeway exit. I will see you there.

The Christmas Spirit

I have been having a very hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. I have been getting less and less excited about Christmas and it's been very sad. I used to feel giddy and happy when I saw Christmas lights and trees. But since I don't feel the "specialness" of the Christmas season anymore, I just planned on letting December pass by without much anticipation.

Then, I went into the rehearsal of Handel's "Messiah" this past weekend. The choir has been rehearsing "Messiah" since September but the choir director let me come in for the last few rehearsals to sing in the performance since I know the music. As I sang about the birth, death and atonement of Christ, I was reminded of what Christmas was truly about. I was trying to induce the excitement of Christmas through Christmas lights, trees, and presents but nothing worked. But when I remembered the true meaning of Christmas and the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ, my heart filled with joy and gratitude. It is through knowing and accepting the atonement of the Savior that I can have everlasting joy and peace.

This is going to be a great Christmas. :)
