Some philosophical thoughts

17 08 2008

There are some people in this world who try to be satisfied with what they are getting and what they already have, and there are some type of people in the world who think they want this thing but when they get it they start to think, no they don’t want this, they actually want something else — this type of people are never satisfied with what they get. People can give big speeches on everything, but we have to look at how much of that they are doing in reality, and we have to judge them based on what they do rather than what they promise that they will do.

A good friend of mine once told me the following:

(1) You should treat people the same way you want to be treated. When you treat someone badly, you are kind of asking to be treated poorly yourself.

(2) God Himself won’t forgive you if you are mean to other people.

A Former Colleague’s Wedding

11 08 2008

Yesterday evening I went to attend the wedding ceremony of my former colleague. We worked together four years ago.

When I first received an email from her telling me that she was getting married and she would mail me the invitation card if I was coming. At first I thought: wow! this little girl is getting married!!!! I responded with an yes and gave her my mailing address.

I still could not believe she was getting married. When we were working together, we were both doing our masters in Computer Science major in different universities; but we had a few classes in common and we used to discuss about our classes during lunch; and we had similar personality. After we both left that job, we kept in touch with each other for a few months, and then we lost track of each other.

In the mean time, she grew up a lot! Yesterday when I met her at the wedding, she no longer looked like that little girl anymore; she looked like a grown up, matured young beautiful bride at the wedding. She looked very happy at the wedding. The guy she was marrying, she knew him for a long time.

At first they had the American style wedding ceremony, then they had the Chinese traditional wedding ceremony.

After seeing her I realized how much time have passed, and may be it’s time for me to grow up too 😀
