Time Is Love

Got the following email from Mama Shieh the other day after I finally graduated from MIT. She has sent some questionable stuff to me in the past, but this was particularly thoughtful. In its unedited and fantastic original form…


I was attracted on one of the articles “What Matters Most” in Purpose Deiven Life by Rick Warren. The book we used in my bible study a couple of years ago. I’d like to share the experience, perhaps wisdom.

Chpt 16: What Matters Most.

Highlight of this chapter:
(1) Relationship are what life is all about. Life is all about love… (love to God, friend, neighbor, children, family members….)

(2) The greatest gift you can give someone is your time. “It is not enough just to say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are worthless. “My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action” Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is “T-I-M-E”.

(3) The Best Time to Love is Now. “Whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to others. Do not wait till tomorrow if you can help/show them now”

She goes on to give examples from her personal life which I won’t share but in the spirit of (2), thanks to everyone that spent time with me and made my 2 years in Boston so wonderful.

I’m On A Boat!

Although I showed up a tad bit late to the party, I still had an amazing time in the British Virgin Islands. Great crew, lots of sun, and a wonderful way to spend some quality time with Sloanies that I have come so close with. The past 2 years have been life-changing and unforgettable.

A few years ago, we decided to take a big Europe trip when we all turned 30. I turned 30 at the end of 2011. An amazing trip that I will always remember. Here are some highlights:

– Enjoying the nightlife/morninglife (runtur)
– Renting a Land Rover and driving around the countryside from 6PM – 6AM

Germany (Munich & Berlin)
– 235 km/hr on the autobahn in a Porsche 911
– Relaxing in the beer garden at the Clarchens Ballhaus with new friends
– Walking along the East Side Gallery

– Riding around town on our bikes
Van Gogh Museum
– BBQ and relaxing in the park
