First time

I stayed up late to finish an experiment. Exhausted, I wanted to go home, with a kind of desperation that led me into thoughts of curling in bed with the fan blowing full-speed.

When I went out, there wasn't a single soul to be seen. The silence was only occasionally disturbed by the passing taxis or the howling of stray dogs. It was 1 am—what do you expect?

I normally ride the jeep from Albert Hall to Yakal, but, this time, I wanted to try walking. The night was cool, the air was crisp, and the possibilities of me getting maimed, robbed, or kidnapped was high. It sounded like fun.

So for the first time, I walked alone. I passed through University Ave, walked past the Theater, turned right to Melchor Hall, and before I knew it, I was home.

As I got ready for bed, I realized how blessed I am for the chance God gave me to do what I enjoy—not just early morning walks, but the experiments I'm doing, and the things I learn from them.

Ah, Colossians 3: 23! Suddenly all exhaustion vanishes when one realizes he's done it for God.
