Early Tuesday morning, my dad dropped Lydia and me back at the
New Jersey transit station in Trenton, and we headed straight back
into New Haven, by way of New York.
In New Haven's Union Station, we ran into Ray Park, waiting for a
friend: chilling and watching 30 Rock while eating Subway. Looked
like a good time.
My day-to-day routine for the week immediately
preceding the first Sunday back at UCW (and my first
sermon of the new school year) was inspired by a post
I once read by jeffstaple outlining his work schedule.
I'd wake up around 9 or 10 AM, work on
correspondence and reading until lunchtime
(1-2 PM), eat a light lunch, keep writing letters and
doing reading until dinnertime, go out (downtown) for
dinner with students; return home, watch a movie and
some television, take a quick nap, and work on sermon
preparation until around 2-3 AM. Rinse and repeat.
Our second day back - in lieu of East Melange (R.I.P.),
Lydia and I headed downtown to meet Soyoon and Will
at Ivy Noodle. =[.
Soyoon's view of old campus - deserted.
Look at that sky.

On Friday, after a day of work, I headed downtown (Lydia
decided to stay in that night) to meet up with Stephen, Joe, and a
recently-returned Gina. After Yorkside, we went back to Silliman to
explore Gina's ginormous single.
Another day of work, another dinner with friends from
church: Liz, Garrett, Lydia, and me. Yorkside, best in
