God is… Patient

I can’t remember the last time I threw a temper tantrum with God.

No no, I remember the last time I got upset with God. But I cannot remember the last time I actually stomped around, doing what He has told me to do without an ounce of happiness or joy. As if I was saying, “Fine, I’ll obey. But I don’t have to be happy about it.”

The best part about it is that I could feel God with me the entire time. He never left me to my own devices, neither did He get impatient with my inability to obey with a smile and a nod. I’m sure that will come with time, but until then, He is patient with me.  Continue reading

When the unthinkable happens: there’s a post for that

This post, that is. And I’d like to apologize in advance for any unfortunates who come across this post, as it was written right after the unveiling of a test score that I had been waiting for ever so religiously. The reason why I’m mad, dear unfortunate reader, is because I can’t possibly understand how, or why, this happened.

Things my dad used to say [1]

“You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” He’d always tell me that when I complained that I wanted everything and got nothing. Of course, back then it’d be about how I wanted to play and instead they made me study.

Funny how some lessons never go out of style.

Creativity is Addicting…

…and I’ll tell you why – because there are no rules.

I can make anything, dream everything, make time move quickly and suddenly come to a halt. I watch lives change, end, and start again. I make friends, kill my enemies, kill my friends and make more enemies. I travel to worlds unheard of, and places I’ve never been. I can fly, I can love, I can experience a tragedy and still come back to reality no more the worse for where.

Or do I truly come back unscathed? Continue reading

When the goin’ gets tough…

… the first thought that came to my mind was, “How can I get out of this?”

Of course, it’s impossible to get out of a college essay assignment, especially if said assignment has been assigned for the past three weeks. The only notable thing about this situation is that it is the longest essay I’ve ever had to write up to this point, a whole six pages, and while I’ve been able to BS a couple essays back in the day, I’m not sure just how able I am to fill up a whole six pages with ideas about nothing pulled out from my… Continue reading

Dear Susie:

– a message from a college student

One of the strangest things about study time is not the fact that its everything our all-girl’s high school prepared us for, but the fact that there are now guys joining the study circle. You may have been in situations where you used brain power with the opposite sex, but in my case, where the previous example never applied, it’s quite the interesting experience. It could be because of the deeper cadence of their voices that mingle strangely in the overall conversation that poses a new situation for me, or perhaps its because some of their… attributes are fairly distracting. Either way, I thought I should let you know: studying with boys is a strange thing.

Sincerely, l’amour de ta vie: the one and only – Elewa Soma
AKA – the extremely inexperienced girl when it comes to the y chromosone
