Becoming Catholic

I am officially becoming Catholic on March 30, 2013. I will receive the three sacraments on that special date which are Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation. I have been preparing to enter the Catholic Church since the beginning of February and I am excited to finally be able to receive the Eucharist at Mass. I pray that God gives me the strength to help me reach my full potential at everything I do and especially in spreading the word of God. I fully accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and I want the special opportunity to be able to show young people through my actions and faith how rewarding and important it is to live life in full acceptance, obedience and accordance to God. I am blessed to have met such great mentors in Father Dan, who is my confirmation sponsor (not many people get to have a priest as their sponsor) and Angelo, who is my current RCIA program instructor. Father Dan and Angelo are very good role models and I'd like to be able to inspire others to do good the same way they have inspired me to lead a life as a Follower of Jesus Christ. In the society that we live in I feel that it is easy for young people to lead astray lives. The society that we live does not value Christian principles. Our role models are the rich and famous. We care too much about what's in our bank accounts. There's too much sex and violence on TV. Sometimes it can feel a little overwhelming and you could feel lost like I did. I always believed that a person is the average of their five closest friends. Fortunately, for me since the beginning of this year my five closest friends all believe in God. And that's just the start. But oh boy what a start! I still have ways to go to improve my relationship with God, but I am closer to Him than ever before. He won't let me down. I can feel His presence and I know he will help me achieve great things as he knew me before I was born. To those reading this post who feel that they are lost or directionless with their lives make God your focal point and everything else will fall into place for you. I will pray that you may encounter the same type of positive people that God directed into my life. Thanks for reading and God Bless! Edited: I prayed and took the confirmation name of Joseph on March 30. I chose Joseph because he was someone who was a great father, a hard worker, a good provider and he lived life in full obedience to God. I admire and aspire to live my life like he did. Amazingly, Joseph is also my sponsor's chosen middle name!

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.

Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
