For My PERSEF Class

--> The first song is the Alphabet Song, which is the first song that I have learned in my life. Like this simple song, I had a simple and basic understanding about my life.
--> Second, I picked the theme song of Pokemon which is all about fun and adventure. When I was a child, I used to be a person who always want to have challenges and adventures so I can prove to everyone that I am the best.
--> Next in line is the song At the Beginning, which describes my love for my family and buddies. It also talks about the start of a journey for me as a student, a friend and a Christian.
--> The next song is entitled Rainbow, this is the song we performed when I graduated in my elementary school. It talks about the hardwork and perseverance you have done in order for you to passed all the obstacles and hardships you have experienced.
--> The fifth song is the theme song of the TV show entitled Friends, when I started to have friends and buddies that helped me to realize that life is simple and that you should just enjoy it
--> Sixth, the song is entitled Someday We'll know. It is memorable for me because it talks about the questions in life that I can't answer even though I think of myself as the best. This song inspires me to work hard and persevere in life.
--> The seventh and eight song talks about a part of my life when I fell in love and the time when my heart is broken. How sad it is but it encourages me to love more my family and friends because they are my treasures.
--> Go the distance is my next song, it talks about my goal to achieve and be successful in my life given to me. I want to go to the distance and prove to everyone that my goal is to be the best among the rest.
--> Last song in my playlist is the song Through the Years, I would like to dedicate this song to the people who have helped and molded me to be hardworking and a person who is responsible. Thank you for all the good things you have done for me!

If I am a philosopher...

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”

Cliché as it may sound but if I were a philosopher, I am interested to look into destiny as my subject study. Some people believed that destiny is solely dependent on intangible factors such as individual’s luck and God’s plan; they can neither change it nor control it, so they end up sitting and relaxing in a couch as they wait for their fate to befall. In contrast, some people perceived destiny as self made—a thing to be aspired and strived for. Little by little, they strive to shape their destiny with the efforts and decisions they undertake in life.

Different perceptions are already attached to it but neither of it has captured the entirety of what destiny is. Given the chance to be a philosopher, I want to gain a deeper understanding of destiny. With the aid of painstaking research, I want to expound my knowledge and be learned on the fundamentals of destiny. Being pushed by my curiosity, I want to unfold the mysteries and comprehend its underlying principles and rationale.

Picturing myself as a philosopher, I have several reasons on speculating destiny in a philosophical manner. First, it is innate in my personality to be curious on the things that interests me particularly those that seem to be as vague and mysterious as destiny. Second, I want to reassess my initial views on destiny. In the process of understanding destiny in a philosophical manner, I am open to the chances that my perceptions on it will either be reaffirmed or debunked. Lastly, I am personally challenged to explain philosophically the why’s and how’s of destiny.

Being purpose-driven, I’ll be a philosopher who is competent, if a connoisseur, in understanding the realities of destiny.
