This is going to be another incoherent post: Many in UK, and I believe certain contingents of the US, have been excited about series 6 of BBC One’s Great British Bake Off. I have never really been into Bake Off, preferring other ‘Great British’ food show on BBC Two: The Great British Menu, which is […]
Today is August 25th and that means that I am exactly one month away from submitting my PhD thesis. It’s a crazy feeling to be so close to finishing. It’s an even crazier feeling to consider all the work that I still want to do before I submit the thing! A friend recently told me […]
Welp, Aldon Smith got arrested again. And now he’s been cut from the San Francisco 49ers. If you haven’t been paying attention to the 49ers this offseason, you’ve missed a remarkably hellish nightmare for fans like me. And this is like the icing on the cake. Except the cake is serious rubbish and the icing […]
At the time of writing this blog I am sitting outside of the secondary venue at the Keswick Conference in the Lake District of England waiting for the main speaker to begin his sermon. I just listened to an older white guy warm up the crowd with a vigorously spoken word concerning God’s preeminence over […]
Food is one of the joys of life and food is a great way for people to come together. Being Filipina-American, I grew up going to large family gatherings, where eating was the main event, as my extended family would spend all day eating around the buffet line full of different Filipino and American dishes. […]
Thanks to Logan’s post a few weeks ago, I have been introduced to an absolutely fabulous worship band called Kings Kaleidoscope (hereafter KK). If you’ve never heard of them, go buy their album, Becoming Who We Are, right now. I did the very same thing after reading Logan’s review and I am so glad that […]
Josh Caroll wrote a nice post last week on how doctoral thesis writing is nothing like running a marathon, I particularly appreciated his final point that ‘Unlike a marathon, the end is not in sight.’ Whilst by that Josh means that ‘you feel like you will never really finish the thesis,’ for me ‘the end […]
I grew up, like most Christians, immersed by Christian culture. Left Behind books, Kirk Cameron movies, Tee-shirts with Christian knock-off slogans. Half of me lived in this realm, the other half lived in secular culture. Stephen King, Jim Carey movies, and non-knock off tee-shirts. All people, Christian or not, care about culture. We want our […]
Time and again, through the course of my studies at the PhD level, I have heard the phrase “Remember, it’s not a sprint but a marathon” used metaphorically to describe the process an individual engages in when writing a PhD thesis (especially here in the UK). I thought, as part of an exercise of writing […]
