  • Susan Wolf's Theory On Meaningful Life

    doesn’t constitute as fulfillment. If we were to spend the rest of our life chasing endless pleasures, what exactly are we accomplishing here? Is life more than going through the motions and get whatever we can get along the way? By participation in religious organizations or social issues impacting the impact the world, we become a partaker in the upcoming changes in the world. In our search for fulfillment, we usually seek our overall happiness in the experience. As stated before, Wolf concludes that our search for happiness is nothing more than “is a form of hedonism, in that its prescription for the best possible life” (Wolf, 2007). In others words, our search for fulfillment is nothing more than self-indulgence. I remember a time when I was a kid, a relative once ask me what do I want be when I grow up. I told her I wanted to be singer, a world class swimmer, a doctor, and so on. The last time anyone asked me that question, I told them I wanted to be writer. As time I went on, I’m not sure who I want be anymore. My search for fulfillment has nothing to down with self-indulgence; my search for fulfillment involve more how I would make lasting impact on society, something that the world will never forget.

  • Personal Narrative: My Time Machine

    theory that the details we don 't know about are ones that they chose not to tell us about. Or perhaps they did tell us, in art, or books or even quotes. As a writer and a poet I know that not all quotes can be interpreted the same way. This works the same in Art. Everyone in the past had something to say and they only chose to tell us some of their life with us. We as humans tend to accuse or even judge before we know the whole story. I can not challenge nor judge the past whether it had been…
