It's the first day of Feb—how fast time flies! Had a blessed time in church today. Delicious lunch at Razon's in Timog Ave. Soon-to-be-doctor Ate Michie told me she'd be praying for me as I prep up for the med school interview. I realized that some petty things make my life easier—like an internet connection in my room. Wegs' approval of me coming to her place for free wifi use because the dorm internet won't be restored until tomorrow. The sense of helplessness at the enormous tasks ahead for this week. It leads me to depend on God alone. Good health. All my roommates now suffer from sore throat, flu, and fever. I'm experiencing the initial symptoms, but I thank God I'm not yet completely bogged down.
