Old Age

Have you wondered what it feels like to be old?

To have lost all your loved ones?

To have lost all your friends?

To be neglected by your family members?

To be treated as a problem in the household?

To be alone?

Please, cherish your old loved ones, before it's too late. One day, you'll be in that position too. Youth does not last forever.

Whoa... Had one fun but tiring weekend!

Note to self: Sleep.

Sometimes, people really need to learn the lesson of humility. The same goes for you, Adrian.

Humility is one of the best policies. =)

Up & Running

Got my momentum back. Up & running now, although one might say it is a little late.

On another note, looked through my readings for Hume for the entire quarter and was pleasantly surprised to realize that I've done something that I always wanted to do - to learn about the different views of the Christian God. Here are some of the author's we went through:

- St. Thomas Aquinas
- Michel de Montaigne
- Francis Bacon
- Rene Descartes
- Pascal
- Spinoza
- Leibniz
- Voltaire

Each one of them had a different view of God and looking through my notes, it's really interesting comparing their different perspectives. =)

Tough Day

My predictions came through after all - this is definitely on quarter where I'll do badly on my academics. Got two essays back, both of them did badly.

Plus, got burnt in the stock market. Ouch.

Then again, this is how life works - where there are ups, there must always be downs. More importantly, I learn from my downs, and appreciate the ups to the fullest.

Keep learning!

Right Thought - Sumangalo

Right thought will lead me on
To wisdom’s holy height,
And show to me the surest way,
To pass through sorrow’s night.

Right Thought will light me through
The shadows of this life;
“Twill ease my heart and peace assure,
And free my mind from strife.

Right Thought will be my guide
Across life’s troubled sea;
My pilot, compass, star and chart,
Right Thought shall ever be.

Right Thought will keep me on
The way to perfect peace,
And ferry to other shore,
Where all Illusions cease.
