This past week has marked the beginning of my career as a PhD student. Although quite tame at present, it’s amazing how that will change with the coming week.
As I embark on this journey, I question my decisions and have constant thoughts of doubt. However, I know that this decision was not made lightly; it consisted of several years of planning and contemplating the possibilities. It started with a seed that was planted by God during my last graduate experience.
I am curious about what the next chapter in my life holds and how I will be impacted by it.
As I read with the morning sun beaming into my home, I try to picture the future. What will it look like? Will it be like what I had expected? Or does God have something completely different planned?
Only time will tell.
I have to say that one of my favourite past times is discovering new music. Those who have read my past blogs will remember how I would share what I am listening to currently.
On the Christian end of things, I have been listening to Kari Jobe recently. I really enjoy her songs because they say what I want to say.
On the mainstream end, a variety of artists have been streaming through my iPod headphones. One in particular is Guy Sebastian’s new single, “Battle Scars.” Check it out:

More from me soon.
This year I am running/walking in the Vancouver CIBC Run for the Cure. I thought it would be a great opportunity to show my support for Breast Cancer research.
If you are interested and in the Vancouver area on September 30th, come out and support me or even run/walk with me. I would love the company.
If you want to support this awesome cause financially, feel free to make an online donation:

Many of you followed me the last time I went to Vancouver for Graduate studies. I am really excited to be launching my new website (http://melaniewong.ca) and blog. Please be sure to come back and check out my adventures, thoughts, etc..
