Thanks to the Lord’s glory, I had a very good day, albeit having to awake at 4 am. I did so to get to the basketball game at the Crisler Arena on campus. That made the experience meaningful was not only the Michigan win but the kindness of the people whom I encountered today! I saw God in every single one of them!!!
“I exist because you need me”
The Ferryman by Claire McFall is the first book, in a long while, that gave me a rush of blood to the heart. I finished reading this in the shortest period of time, and damn, every single page I had gone through made it worth it.
I read the Chinese translation because English is just too basic.
Lessons that can be learnt from this book include, but are not limited to：
- I create my own reality.
- Love resolves all.
- One has to give out love in order to attract love.
Because of the background of my family and many more “awkward” circumstances “love” was once, deemed by me, a word so cliche and overused before I finished The Ferryman.
i now know that “love” is neither my sweet words nor my cute face, it is my actions. Love must not be said but done. I now know how to better love myself, my family, my boyfriend (Sorry, Tyler, saying or even typing ‘ily’ is still hard, but I will say it when the timing is right I’ve promised to show you love via my actions~
Let me re-iterate for the 1000000th time, I thank YOU for this website, support and kindness! You rock. It’s amazing to find you, acquant you, know you, befriend you and boyfriend you.
You exist (in my world) because I need you, and I exist (in your world) because you need me.
Thanks for being my superhero ⁄(⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)⁄
Thanks for being there.
I thank you for uplifting not only my mind but my soul.
May God bless us ~ ❤
Disclaimer: Albeit being a sophomore student at the University of Michigan, I still dislike reading English literature, especially the super thick books, so i read the Mandarin translation of this book.
“It has always been a dream of mine to travel around the world; I want to visit as many countries as possible, but I will only do so if one condition is met: if and only if the health and welfare of my family members is established.”
“You should try the water slide in the park.”
“No. I don’t like water. I don’t know swimming.”
“But barely any swimming is involved..Since you won free tickets to Slide the City, you should know it’s an event on water, correct?”
“……Well……I thought by “Slide the City,” the name implies sliding via skateboarding … I didn’t bother to look up the event anyway… I merely won 2 tickets from @ThatsShanghai by luck, you can play, and I’ll just chill.”
“Try the water slide with me!!”
