For Happiness

I do not want to have any regrets

I do what I do because I do not want to have any regrets. Now that I am 20 years old, I think it is fair to say that I do have some life experience, and overall I have been happy with my decisions and way of living. In retrospect, I have found a common theme in the memories that put make my heart sink; and that is the fact that they are all filled with regret. I have felt regret in situations where I do not take a risk or take a chance; situations where I am scared of the end result. Looking… Continue

Because They Can't do what I Can

When I was a toddler, I refused to wear any clothing with animals, characters or people on it because I was afraid it would hurt them to get sun in their eyes when I went outside. So I guess my concern and empathy for others is either innate or was taught to me early on, and has definitely contributed to why I do what I do every day and why I aspire to become who and what I aspire to become. I’m a big believer in the notion that everything happens for a reason, which I why I feel so lucky…

Seize the Moment

There is no time like the present.  You never really know when an opportunity will present itself to you again, so why not seize the moment and take advantage of it the first time it comes around?  Oftentimes people will dismiss the chance to experience something new due to prejudgments or the fear that they will not succeed.  Looking back on past events I will regret more the experiences that I missed out on than the things that I did, but did not enjoy.

Everything we do offers the…

Because I want to

     It's 2:00AM right now... I honestly do not know why I'm not asleep yet. In the background Tetra Splendour is filling my ears with their nonsensical lyrics... They sound like the distant wailing of happier days, and more meaningful nights. Why did I do what I did that day, that minute, that second, that instant? Why is always the question of the curious, of the downtrodden. But I think the more important question is how. Yes, How? How do I feel right now? How did I feel at that moment?…

To live a better life than my parents

    In 1975 two students from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia immigrated to United States with nothing but their suitcase and their asspirations. At the time Ethiopia was a nation struck by civil war. Ultimately

this would result in the victory of communist Dictator Menguistu Miriam.

Menguistu ruled with the objective of imprisoning the educated and upper middle

class, thus threatening the…

Report from Cairo, Egypt - Feb 2, 2011

I love what I do... but this national crisis came and has made everything else in my life seem insignificant.



Things have been crazy over here (Cairo) as you know, we just got internet back today (yay:-) how we take some things for granted), the past week was very exciting and celebratory, then today everything turned ugly and very sad. We thought we were so close last night...we thought finally things would change. Yesterday there were over a…

tired of this world

I have no fancy text or picture, I'm just looking to see if there's anyone who I can talk to right now. I am no orphan or a victim of child abuse. My problems started however when my father left me when I was two, I told myself all my life that it wasn't his choice that his job required him to, even though he lived in so many other places that were so far from where I was. My two older half sisters, who's biological father was a drug addict and convict who never tried to be a part of their… Continue

Opportunities passed are lost forever

 

Life is uncertain. Death doesn’t follow a laid out schedule. It’s all unpredictable. Too many times, I put life on hold. I tell myself I will get around to this or that, but the truth is, I might not have time to get around to it. None of us know when we will die; there is no magic clock showing us how much time we have left, and when I die I want to know that I was the best I could be and I did the most I could do. NO REGRETS. For me, this encompasses many things. I want to be…

To Begin Living

Trying to figure out a personal answer to this at a relatively inexperienced age seemed difficult. Regardless of all the possible explanations I began to think of, though most were valid, none were all-encompassing in terms of defining my most basic motivation. Then I began to think of all the goals that drove my actions, everything from making the most of the moment, to building meaningful relationships to harvesting my potential. These aforementioned goals of mine have only been realized…

To Survive

All I have done up to this time of my life is to survive in this advanced and competitive world, and I intend to be the stepping stone or ladder so that my younger brother and possibly my descendants can use for their social mobility.  I have spent eleven years of my childhood in Vietnam, an impoverished country.  I have seen with my own eyes and understood that in many places in this world, many people are born into poverty and could never be able to escape that cycle no matter how hard…

all for my family

WDYDWYD? Actually this question has been kept in my mind for a long time. I always ask myself this question? What is the purpose of doing all the things I am doing now? I guess for now, all the things I m doing is for my parents. For the past 22 years, my parents made all the decision for me. They decided which club I should join in school, where should I go after graduate, which university I should apply and what major I should go for, all the things they decided for me. Maybe I just got used… Continue

I do it because the best can never exist alone

 

For me, I do it because the best can never exist alone.

Life is comparable. Based on our experiences, we would give judgments or comments on something based on our experiences. Yesterday, I had dinner with an old friend in a French Cuisine.  We did not see each other for a long time. Since we have known each other since elementary school, we dated back our childhood and school life.…

To get my dreams come true

My eyes open for the first time, about my future, the day I come to United State, five years ago. I do what I do, because I want to make my future life bright and am trying to get my dreams come true. I know if I don’t work hard now my future life and dreams will be lost. The biggest dream I had was since when I was a kid I love helping kids who doesn’t have parents from the streets. I adopt this dream is because I grow up with my aunty and never got to see my parents until I become 16yrs…

Because My Sister Was My Inspiration…

I had grown around a pool deck since I was 3 years old. My sister Jordanne was 8 when she joined the local swim team. I went with my mom to watch her at every practice and competition that she went too. At practices, I would be running up and down the concrete bleachers looking for the pine cone seeds to collect. For meets she was a fierce…

I do what I do for peace of mind

The question of why I do what I do is a tough one, not just because it requires thought, because many times I contradict myself, my actions, and my words.  As I pondered this question I thought back to a speech I watched online of Apple CEO Steve Jobs making a commencement speech to Stanford University.  He told 3 stories from his life, and one of them resonated with me to the point where it is one of the only ways to describe my actions.  His story, abridged, says that when he dropped out…

...Ah, but what do I do with them?

Life for me is about relationships. They start as little lego pieces without instructions, and some fit together somewhat-perfectly but most of them I don't know what to do with and put aside for later. Mostly I never find those pieces again.

 

I bullshit a lot (i.e. “Friends with benefits” benefits both parties in ways that real relationships could never achieve). I think the first step for change is to be honest with yourself. But often times I don't even know who I am on the…
