By: Backstreet Boys

I know that I, I can't believe
Just what the past has brought me
To the man I wanna be
I know that we have had some times
That we can't forget the struggle
Cause we have so far to go

I know we've changed but
Change can be so good
So let's not forget why
It's understood that

Time, look where we are and what we've been through
Time, sharing our dreams
Time, goes on and on everyday, baby
Time is what it is
Come what may (come what may)

I remember when, mom used to say
That things are getting better
And you'll soon be on your way
Remember those days
When we would sing at the drop of a dime (Oooh)
Way back when nothing mattered (Mmm, mm, mm)



So here we are(here we are)
And we'll always stay together
And through it all you know we owe it all to you, you, you , you
Time goes on and on


Time, goes on and on everyday, Time is what it is
Come what may
Come what may


a great song by the boys ..
well .. one of those great b-side songs ..
remember .. it'll get better ..
so hang in there !

i dun wanna cry

i don't wanna cry ,
cuz my tears had gone dry,
i know where the answers lie,
i just need to go there and find,
my heart is willing,
but the mind is not,
seems like i just can't get outta this box,
can't get outta this flock,
i gotta run,
i have no guns,
to fight the enemies that seems no fun,
ahh ,
i gotta run ...
cause i can't finish my rhyme.

my sister and i .. kert and kerry's wedding .. :-) Posted by Hello

Saturday, June 26, 2004


Here goes another week in the summer ,
i guess during the summer .. weeks go by really fast,
two more weeks then i am done with summer school,
then i'll have to adjust myself back into the 8-5
monday to friday work mode for 2 months ...
don't get me wrong i love working,
i love my job and i love hanging out at my job ,
but obviously it's different from going to school,
granted i don't have to worry about homeworks or exams,
but i do have to worry about computers .. lol ..

talking about adjusting to a full time employee life,
my friend Nick .. shared some insights about that during
my homegroup guys time .. he shared about .. the responsibilities
of a student , ie. school, work .. etc .. comparing to the responsibilities of
a MAN .. ie. family , work , social .. etc .. and how demanding it will be ..
and he pointed out a really good point about spiritual life,
if we (as students / young man w/ lotta free times) cannot discipline ourselves
to seek the LORD .. it will be harder for the days when we get older .. and have a family ..

i totally agree with him ..
so y'all .. start buildin' this relationship with God thru Christ ..
He's always there pursuing us .. it's just the matter of fact whether we are responding
to HIM or not ,
we can choose to run and drown ourselves in this world ,
or we can immerse ourselves in the truth found in the creator of this world.



have a good one ..

that's me .. in my tux !  Posted by Hello

My good friend wedding.

My good friends Kert and Kerry's wedding was awesome,
it was a very neat wedding,
very simple but full of meaningful stuff ,
the sermon was great , reception was fun and family friendly,
i had fun .. i was glad to meet with old friends and making new friends
alike, i also had fun suitin' up in a tuxedo for the wedding ( i looked cute according to cori .. :-P and i looked like a stud .. according to the guys .. esp. ben ) ..

here are some of my thoughts after the wedding,
"WOW" ...
and as i look at my life i wonder when i'll have my wedding
... LOL .. j/k ...
anyways ..
i love the meaning of marriage ..
and how it paralleled Christ marriage to the church.

again ....

well ...
2 1/2 weeks into summer school,
i am already behind keeping up with my math class's materials,
math 311 (linear algebra / multi-variable calculus) is NOT
fun especially when the prof wants the students to
make the connection between Algebra and Geometry,
well .. i m not a BIG fan of Geometry since grade schools,
that makes this class harder ( ya know vector spaces / sub-space / domain / range .. stuff like that)
anyways ..
2 midterms comin' up , one in Statistics and one in Math .... actually both in math .. LOL


my best friend wedding is this friday ...
"my best friend wedding !??!?!? "
haha ...
not really ..
well yea .. one of my good friend Kerry is gettin' married !
wow .. crazy huh ..
:-X speechless.
i'll be at the wedding as an usher ..
.. i'll remember to take some pictures this time !


oh .. ok .. Sports NEWS.
England 1 : France 2 ...
France's captain Zidane had a CRAZY day ...
he scored 2 goals in INJURY time to beat England ..
> tough LUCK ENGLAND !

NBA .. Pistons leads Lakers 3-1 .
it's OVER for the Lakers.
yay .. finally an Eastern Conf. is going to win the NBA Title (since MJ's Bulls)


A&M lost to LSU in Super Regional Baseball .. :-(

stupid lakers defeated the pistons last night,
i am very disappointed !
anyways .. pistons should've fouled any player (esp. Shaq)
when there's 4 seconds left in the game, instead of that,
they let Kobe had a 3 pointer ... ahh ....

the series will shift back to DETRIOT tomorrow !!
yay !

go Mo-Town Bad Boys.

i'll be in Denton , North Texas for the next few days!
that should be fun !

-- gettin' outta my aggie-zone for a few days.

Rainy Day

it is raining out there ,
from moments to moments i can barely see the sun,
isn't that how life is sometimes?
we get caught in a bad weather,
and yet what we need is to see the SON .

~ have a blessed day.

Random stuff

NBA finals ~ Piston leads Lakers 1-0 ... interesting huh .. the other team that Coach Brown used to coach (76ers) .. had the same exactly AMAZING start against the Lakers a few years ago .. but they ended up losing 1-4 .. so .. it's still gonna be an interesting series .


ok .. check this out ..
Bill Board Hot 100
1) Burn, Usher
2) I Don't Wanna Know, Mario Winans Featuring Enya & P. Diddy
3) Naughty Girl, Beyonce

.. and then read the article (Single - ness) that i wrote a few days ago ..


Interesting song by Rapper/Producer Kanye West,

To the hustlas, killers, murderers, drug dealers even the strippers
To the victims of Welfare for we living in hell here hell yeah
Now hear ye hear ye want to see Thee more clearly
I know he hear me when my feet get weary
Cuz we're the almost nearly extinct
We rappers are role models we rap we don't think
I ain't here to argue about his facial features
Or here to convert atheists into believers
I'm just trying to say the way school need teachers
The way Kathie Lee needed Regis that's the way yall need Jesus
So here go my single dog radio needs this
They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus
That means guns, sex, lies, video tapes
But if I talk about God my record won't get played Huh?
Well let this take away from my spins
Which will probably take away from my ends
Then I hope this take away from my sins
And bring the day that I'm dreaming about
Next time I'm in the club everybody screaming out

(Jesus Walks)
God show me the way because the devil trying to break me down
(Jesus Walks)
The only thing that I pray is that me feet don't fail me now

.. what do u think ?

~peace out.

journey to manhood

3 weeks ago i burned the back of my hand ,
a week ago i learned how to fix my car
a week ago i sprained my ankle ... ,
the day before yesterday i learned that everything doesn't have to go my way,
yesterday i learned that someone somewhere somehow (incl. myself) will forget something important,
today i learned sometimes i am really annoying to other people too ...,
ahh .. what a journey to manhood .. ,
so what will i learn tomorrow ,
and what will i learn the DAY after tomorrow ..


welcome to life.

"Welcome to the planet,
Welcome to existance ... " ( Switchfoot ~ Dare you to move)

Single - ness

Hard to live in the world like this,
where Usher's singing "Let is burn" and
"Can't do the right thing and move on .. gotta let it go ... " ,
and Mario Winan's singing " i don't wanna know,
and if you are playing me keep it on the low " ,
are all the single guys that desperate of a relationship,
even in one that they know it might not really work out ?
and choose to live in a lie?
i don't know, i mean i found myself in the similar situation too,
don't wanna move on , and hoping there's another chance,
maybe sometimes we do need patience,
maybe sometimes .. we do need a break from all of it ..
and let guys be guys .. and stop worrying about all these
stuff about girls.
i guess we all demanded truth, wanted truth , yet when it's
time to make the decision we rather hide behind our own imagination,
or our own expectation of what gonna happen next ..
it's always great to have a "REALITY CHECK" from someone,
truth and honesty hurts, and yeah i can testify to that,
but that's only one part of life ,
there are many other parts that we can be thankful of,
thank GOD there's a band called Switchfoot
that sing " Time is never money, life is more than cash, life is still
more than girls, more than 100 dollars bills ... "
and songs like "Hunter" from Dido that talks about freedom from relationships (unprecedented huh .. ) ...
well .. ya know ..
there's a SEASON for everything,
cherish the season you are in ( i need that myself) ...

Here's something to read on ..
Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
