Imperfection is the Perfection

Albert Einstein once wrote, "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new". People are always afraid for failure. They always want to live a perfect life. Life should be convenient, easy, and comfortable. To do this, avoid committing mistakes. This is where everyone is wrong. People should not be scared of failing. Failure makes us stronger and wiser in the future.

Oftentimes, imperfection is the way to achieve perfection. This is true (as I think it is for me). I am not encouraging people to keep failing and making mistakes in life, rather, to be able to stand up and take responsibility of whatever it may be that comes along the way. Mistakes are good foundation for a successful way of living. You made mistake, you eventually learn and make better decisions in the future.

This is another problem of the society. Everyone deems themselves perfect. There is nothing wrong with achieving perfection, but at least understand that we need cooperation rather than division.

The Next Destination

In exactly 25 days,  I am finally graduating from college. The question I always asked myself every time i wake up in the morning waiting for that special day, what is next?

All my life I dedicated to school and work. Nothing else. I remember most of the people I know would call me boring, that I don't know what is fun. They are quite right, I never really done anything in my life that can be considered "fun". I never understood that.. I believe, studying and going to school is the only thing I know that makes me feel good and that i consider "fun" except for those weeks that I am dragging to finish all  my homeworks and study for tests...

So what's next? Would I be one of those jobless fresh graduate students, or would I make a difference? I still have yet to reveal the answer for that soon, and yes, it is fast approaching. I have already identified who I am. Making it in the real world would be a great accomplishment for me. Next chapter, here i come!

The Clash of Cultures

How do you feel when you are caught in between two rocks? For all i know, it is not as simple as i think it can be.

One day you are a different person and one day it is magic, you are a different person again. How is this possible? We always adapt to our environment. When you do not like mushrooms and your friends like it, you become a different person and eat mushroom because you do not want to be an outcast. Is this considered hypocrisy? yes, i would consider that. We are all hypocrites in our own ways. I think it is part of human behavior that sometimes, at the end of the day we can no longer identify who we truly are.

Is this what we want? They said we are all unique, but how is it that we want to be alike in several ways? This is unfortunate. We deny hypocrisy, we do not like hypocrites, but we act on it. Accept it and do nothing, or reject it and prove I am wrong.
