I'm Thaonhi (pronounced TOWN-nee), 16 in age, and just a girl living her life.
This little "about me" makes me seem like a totally solemn person, but scroll a little down, and you'll see I'm quite the opposite.
"I’ll get lost along the way, and I’ll wager sometimes I’ll stray off the path by a thousand miles, but there’s a general direction I'm heading. Forward."
the best part of today was coming back to my room and changing into this shirt.
over winter break, my family and i went to the local outlets to shop the Nike sale. instead of buying awesomely discounted Nike kicks, my dad and i bought identical, large, lacrosse nike shirts for $1.50 (!!!).
Ba: “Bo (that’s my nickname), come look at these shirts! THEY’RE SO CHEAP. you could wear these to sleep! I’m buying one.”
me: “I’ll buy one too! WE CAN MATCH!”
i love this shirt, and i love my dad.
thank you, God, for giving me joy — that even though today was a rough day, it ended on a good note. (James 1:2; Psalm 89:17)
“Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you where my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.”
continuing my streak of speaking in class (afr) every day! — hooray!
"genetics" was so interesting. i love immunology, even though i don’t understand half of it.
consumed yet another cup of coffee (i’m not a coffee drinker!) and it’s not even real coffee! it’s like sugar + milk + sugar + coffee from jcl, but it makes me feel better. aaa more sleep pls
consumed yet another slice of pizza for lunch. most of my meals are during org meetings, and unfortunately, all they have is pizza. last week, i had pizza every single day — sosososo bad
but my friend/acquaintance j said hi to me! don’t take this the wrong way, but he is so /cool/. i just think he’s a cool, genuine person, and i admire his sincerity and diligence.
study sesh with ariella! twas productive, humbling, and overwhelming. definitely did not feel as prepared as i should’ve for an exam that i would have in two hours
mom’s food for dinner (aka my fuel for this exam week) — hot pot fish (but i just microwaved it), bittermelon, and melon/squash soup (bc idk which one) thank the Lord for my loving mother who spoils me abundantly.
another very personally disappointing chem exam… eh. i don’t even know what to do anymore… how i can improve? how can i try my best? but again, more leaning on the Lord!
on a side note, thanks God for Emily who always listens to my sad, frustrated, nonsensical rants. i appreciate this girl so much. the Lord has loved me so much through her.
and now, i should start finish up my lab write-up and study for genetics ahhhhhhhhhhh IT’S OKAY! God is good, and He’s going to carry me to me the finish line (of this week)
