Awaking from Dark Slumber

Fear is something that comes often in life. Usually, when a step is taken to the unknown. Those moments are scary and seem to change our lives the most.

I don’t know if I am going through one of those stages that I feel alone and yet to find a purpose worth living for. How many people have felt like this before? At this point I feel that everything that has been learned has to be questioned. Who am I?

This entire time, people telling me constantly, who I am supposed to be or what is expected.

-To study
-Get a career
-Be a Good person

These are good things, yet they are just enforced these days without clear meaning or a definition from the individual. No sense of a “self” is created.

For these three stated above are common. Every reason leads to a common good. But what is that “good”?

In my “good” the reasons are:

-To study because it will make me an educated person, so I can surpass the last generation in some form.
-Get a career, so I may not have to struggle with the need. And help the needy.
-Be a good person so others can respect me and live with peace.

These are my general answers in which I find myself struggling in. Because all of these find it to go to the end. All the means used to get to this end are taught to us. We have to question these ourselves. Because here it seems that happiness is the motive for everything.

-To study, will bring happiness because I will know things and be able to share with people knowledge.
-Get a career so we can provide our procreation and have a happy life.
-Be a good person because it will cause a joy to know you are respected.

This fear felt is “good”. Because everyone has their view on it. It causes growth if you let it.

By the Grace of God I am what I
am, and his grace to me was not
without effect.
1 Corinthians 15:10

While taught many of these expectations, I am trying to find that meaning. I am awaking from slumber. Not letting everything pass by anymore. We all have great potential in life and we cannot let everyone express themselves for our “self”.

What do you think? Do you let your friends influence everything you do? Your parents? Even society in general?

Will you start to let yourself think and find a meaning for life? I am trying to encourage you to choose to think. Because what good would it be to be told what is the “good”? We have to strive to find it.

Jp here

This isn’t joe, I’m joes sister (: I’m three years younger than him. Well today was my 5th basketball game and its the fourth time I haven’t played -_-
I was going to get ready to quit but its the motivation that I need more of.
I just need to keep going and not drop out because I know if I do I would always wonder “what if I didn’t quit?”
But I’m completely clueless when I’m in the game!! some of our games are like:

Coach: Parra! Watch the ball!
Meh: *gets ball, freaks out and passes ball away. Tries to move and ends up falling on the floor*
Coach and team: ouch..

Yeah it’s crazy, I understand the plays but I can’t seem to fit the pieces together. Then on top of that there’s physics and geometry I have to worry about! No time for playing Pokemon /: my typhlosion is a level 70 though :3
Geometry isn’t hard its super easy. I never do my homework but I always get A’s for all my geometry tests. And physics I just don’t understand. I memorized that an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon a moving object. But I don’t understand the formulas and how they work.

But that’s just schoolwork. I love my friends and everyone (: they never mind me and think I’m funny and pretty somehow… O.o

Well I’m going to the mall with my bro so yeah I’ll catch up to anyone later :3
Peace,
Jp Atireme 😀

Waiting Last Minute…

Totally forgot I had a WordPress Account. I have been busy 24/7. College and work really have their attention arguments with each other. School is fun, work not so fun.

I have to do both though.

Lately, my life has been good, then stressful, then good again. Sometimes I think to myself and ask if I am going crazy? Am I the only one thinking these things? Surely other college students must be thinking these things about how “I should of not played Black Ops 2, and have done my English paper”. Or “should have not went to the Midnight release of this game”.

Crazy stuff, A “college life”.

I, as a College Student, have noticed that even though I have graduated from high school, some habits remain. Procrastination is a reluctant one on leaving. But why? Human nature? Yeah, right.

I wonder how the though process of other is about this “Procrastination”. How can one find ways to deal with it. Luckily, I am good with papers last minute. I do not have proper grammar skills but I do enjoy writing.

Not in my Philosophy class, luck leaves me. If I did not do the readings, then. . . yeah, not a pretty picture.

Professor Wisdom: Joe, what is the categorical imperative?
Joe: Umm, sorry I did not read that article but I read the other one?
Professor Wisdom: -_- Alright, talk to me about your though process for that then?
Joe: I did not really understand it, sorry.
Professor Wisdom: That is alright, *calls on next person, slowly turning from me.
Side note: Philosophy is some hard for this ethics class man!

My Procrastination is sometimes humiliating.

Man is only a reed, the weakest in
nature, but he is a thinking reed. . . .
[All] our dignity consists in thought.
. . . . Let us then strive to think well.
-Blaise Pascal

By this quote I try to state a point that could help many college students right now and many to come.

College is what you make of it. Like anything else, you can learn. Like playing a video game, you can learn things even they are not evident unto our physical nature yet implanted into our unconscious.

Thinking and learning is in our nature. So, is the answer for Procrastination really Human Nature? Maybe so. We are Rational beings and have the ability to discern whether we want to think and do that English assignment due tonight at 11:59 p.m.

So, do you wait, or think last minute about what you should do?

I would love to see anyone post something or leave feedback. I am new to blogging.
