- The point of dating is ultimately marriage
- Why would you date someone when you know there is no future? It is abusing someone.
- Who would ask their pastor to date his/her kids while explaining that they do not expect to marry them?
- Don't worry about dating. Worry about maturing.

You know what really bugs me? People who complain about how ignorant a group of people are, yet their very own statement is a statement of ignorance.
Sure, people can be ignorant... but when someone make the statement, "Christians are ignorant", that person implies that all Christians are ignorant (even if that person didn't mean it). That person also comes off as ignorant, bigoted, and/or incapable of using logic.
To overhear people say that sucks, but to hear someone write it off by saying, "Oh, I didn't mean for YOU to hear that" doesn't justify anything. No apology? Or is that a sad attempt at one? That's another thing that pisses me off. When someone wrongs you, it is easier if you are reassured that they will try to tone down a bit and attempt to make up for their mistake. For some people, a spoken apology is enough. For others, they expect a promise or for the offender to make it up somehow. So if the offender does nothing at all? That's called being a jerk... but you can also substitute some more offensive synonyms in there as well.
I understand that people may be skeptical of Christianity or may be atheists. I don't find anything wrong with that, but I do find something wrong with people who find it funny to make a negative, blanket statement about all Christians. Those who are willing to discuss beliefs, whether disagreeing or agreeing, are okay, but once they cross the line... that just gets on my nerves. There's nothing intelligent about a person who haphazardly throws out jokes about Christians. Of course, there are times where you can make those jokes with friends where they know you do not have anything you or your beliefs, but they just found a joke that was funny... though, delivery and timing of a joke is important if it is meant to be funny.
There are limits to my tolerance and those ignorant statements definitely crosses the line.
People deserve respect... but if you can't respect others, what makes you think other people will want to respect you?

This is a dream that has made me feel like a rebel, made me cry, made me feel like I hit rock bottom, and made me overjoyed! I just want to share it with you.
I'm chilling out with a bunch of my friends from KCCC, all excited for the grand opening of Starcraft 2 (I know, it came out already, but this is my dream). We're at this high tech elevator that floats without wires! As we all marvel at this awesome thing. It looks like we are standing inside a parking lot, but the ceiling is high enough to make us feel like it wasn't a parking lot. Where the elevator should be, there was a huge, jagged, and almost circular opening in the ground. Joseph Lee, my SW, almost stumbles into the "chasm" and I freaked out and pulled him away from it.
As we continued talking, the elevator finally came floating up.
It was marvelous! A towering elevator that looks kind of... biological? The doors opened in a way that looked slimy. A professional looking person in this black suit asks for registered guests to come into the elevator. I'm watching some of my friends go in the elevator and it floats up to the top.
Um... I don't want to sit around... this is boring.
Minutes later, another elevator comes up and I went into it with Joseph Lee.
Joseph Koo: Wait! I don't think you should do that!
Me: Nah, it's okay! C'mon Joseph (Lee)!
Joseph and I entered the elevator and the inside looked like a regular elevator. I found a hidden switch and I press the button to get to the top floor. When we reach the top, the ones who went before me turned around
"What are you doing here?"
Me: I'm just here to check out stuff
The moment I move past my friends, a siren/horn goes off repeatedly in short intervals! Everyone is FREAKING OUT and I see the manager walk briskly towards me, shoving my friends aside.
"GET OUT! You're not registered! The cops will be waiting for you downstairs!"
He said all that while pointing viciously at me. Cutthroat, no mercy... I freaked out and didn't know what to do. I left Joseph with my friends at the event and pressed the button to go to the bottom floor.
"Nah, no way this is real... this can't be happening to me! I'm not really in that much trouble, right?"
I was on the verge of crying, feeling an all time high of immense fear. Holy crap... what's gonna happen to me? I go down the elevator alone. Sad that I broke the law. Sad that I brought my SW with me.
When the elevator reached the bottom floor, it turned into a cart (what the...) and went towards an elevator operator. As I look into the distance, I could see an officer point at me and say,
"Yeah, that's the troublemaker."
He uttered a few more profanities that made me feel lower than a dog. My heart sank as the cart was passing the operator, who kicks the cart towards a fat cop.
"Get out of the cart! HURRY UP!"
I fumble out of the cart.
"Put your hands up! HANDS UP!"
I freak out, start crying, and notice a skinny cop shooting a rifle in the distance, alternating with the fat cop.
The skinny cop tells me,
"I knew this day would come. You almost killed my partner"
Me: What? He was about to shoot me! I had to--" (wait what? yeah... dreams are like that)
Skinny cop: "No, you didn't. You had a choice and you messed up. You screwed up big time ad you deserve to be in jail. YOU HEAR ME? You deser--"
Me: I know, I know, I.. I...I didn't want... It's all my fault..."
I bawled my eyes out and covered my face with my hands.
I thought I might get an easier sentence if I just admitted my wrongs, but the fat guy's expression told me otherwise. I started thinking, "Put me in jail already... I just want to get it over with..."
I lean back, wanting to sleep and forget all this crazy crap that's going on. As I lean back, I find myself resting on a familiar object. It felt warm and I realized that it was. My voice, cracked and coarse from crying, managed to blurb out one word...
I turn around and see Scott's back supporting me. I look in front of me and I see Josh and other guys in KCCC. They're cops, but they were different. They were relaxed, playful with each other. I look to my right and find two guys playfully pushing each other... probably trying to look tough. I look around and saw all the guys chatting away, comfortable and creating an atmosphere of brotherhood.
I ask Josh,
"Why are you guys so nice (to me)?"
Josh: That's just how we are.
I heard Phil's voice butting in,
Josh: These guys, they just have this connection...
Josh: It doesn't matter who you are.
"Whatever", Phil says playfully.
Josh: Whether you're one of us or an Israelit
Phil: You mean... Isrealite? *grins*
Josh: Man, shut up.
Just the fact that they didn't care I was in trouble and didn't treat me like crap... I was overjoyed! They talked to me like I was a part of their group and consoled me while I was freaking out over the whole incident. I felt my heart warm up and tears of joy welled up in my eyes. You guys are the best!
End dream sequence...
I finally woke up and I realized that none of this happened and the story was RETARDED, but I was still touched by all that I faced. Somehow, I <3 KCCC... even though they didn't really get me out of trouble. =/
My heart feels so warm and fuzzy inside. Reminded me of how I accepted Christ and the times we were all hanging out in KCCC... especially freshman year. I never felt so close people outside my family before.
Thank you for the memories. Let's create more for others!

Right now I'm trying to brush up on my programming skills and learn java/xml at the same time. I'm working on a simple flashlight application to get the hang of the android environment and (for today) get used to creating menus.
