2014: My Body Is Ready

I felt a profound sense of happiness while I was watching the fireworks earlier tonight. Truth be told, that feeling of happiness was so intense that it kinda made me want to cry. It was unlike anything I’ve ever felt on a New Year’s Eve. I didn’t know why I would want to cry though. There was nothing sappy, emotional or dramatic about watching fireworks from across a polluted river. But I don’t know, I was filled with hope, I guess? Hope that this new year could be a year filled with new and better opportunities. Hope that this year could be a tabula rasa, and I could start again with a fresh beginnings. Hope that I would be able to fix all the mistakes I made in the yesteryear, return things to the way they used to be. Hope that I can actually stick to my resolutions, and improve as a person.

Right then and there, I felt like 2014 would be a great year for me. I might be being too optimistic here, but that feeling of happiness/hope (hope-iness???) was so strong, I feel like it can’t be wrong. I am definitely looking forward to this new year. I intend to make it one of my best years. The universe may conspire against me, but I’ll just push on and fight back.

If someone actually took the time to read all this, thank you. I hope you feel excited for this new year too. If 2013 sucked for you, don’t worry, you can do better this year. New year, new beginnings.

Anyway, long post over. Happy New Year, all!

Inception

No, I don’t mean the very confusing movie starring the still Oscar-less Leonardo Di Caprio. 

I mean “inception” as in the establishment or starting point of something – in this case, mah blog.

I guess introductions are in order, since this is probably the first time you, the reader, are meeting me. So uhhh, hi! My name is Josh, I’m a sophomore at De La Salle University, taking up Behavioral Science and Accountancy. I like watching TV shows, reading books, and surfing the net in general. Also, I enjoy taking long walks at the beach at sunset but you don’t need to know that.

Though I created this wordpress to comply with the requirements of my INTFILO (Introduction to Philosophy) class, I want to keep it alive with posts about things that interest me, or updates about my life. Kinda like a Tumblr blog, without all the gifs and feels, and more school stuff and reflection papers. Also, I am sorry for my header. I literally just took the default one and added some text to personalize it. 

I want to close this first post with a video I found today made by Vsauce, one of my favorite educational YouTubers. In this video, he talks about the senses, memory, how we know things, epistemology, realism, solipsism, and a bunch of other philosophical stuff that I assume (and hope) we will be discussing in class at some point. 

‘Till next time!
