My Philosophy of Human Existence (PHILOPE finals)

In my previous term in De La Salle University – Manila, I took a class called Philosophy of a Person (PHILOPE). It’s the next class you’d take after you’ve passed Introduction to Philosophy (INTFILO). Our professor in PHILOPE told us that “You will have to write a paper on human existence in place of your final exam”.

And so I began.

Unfortunately, I believe I didn’t get the grade that I deserved, but I guess it was kinda my fault as well. To say “All the things I learned in class don’t matter” well, what kind of professor wouldn’t get pissed off LOL.

Philosophy of Human Existence

First and far most, I want to make this as clear as possible that, although I find all these philosophers and their philosophy to be interesting, I can say that I am only interested in them in an academic point-of-view. I am, as many people find hard to believe, a buddhist, a zen buddhist if you want to be more specific. My friends find this hard to believe because of my long-standing battle against religion. I was, what they called then, a pilosopo back in high school. Continue reading “My Philosophy of Human Existence (PHILOPE finals)”

Something You Always think “What If…” About (30 day Challenge, day 16)

There is one thing that I always regret doing and I’ve been regretting it for about 6 years now I guess? I always thought “what if I never fucked up in High School? What if I actually took my academics seriously?” If you don’t know the history of my high school education… I graduated to high school in Lourdes School of Mandaluyong. I got held back a year there, then after 4 years I got expelled. I went to HSP (kinda like home school, kinda) and I spent two more years there, which shouldn’t have happened since I was only supposed to spend one year then I’d be off to college. But unexpected things happen Continue reading “Something You Always think “What If…” About (30 day Challenge, day 16)”

My Father and His Plan to Ruin My Future

So earlier today I tweeted something about my title of this article

The story goes like this.. I flunked out of my previous high school, Lourdes School of Mandaluyong, and my parents were upset, obviously. My teachers (and I) knew that I was extremely smart, unfortunately I was extremely lazy as well. Hence, my grades on the subjects I hated (which at the time, were more than half of the curriculum) would exponentially drop. On the other hand, subjects I loved had high grades eg. Electronics. I was expelled for my lethargic behaviour and I knew I was in deep shit. I only had a year to go before I could go into college! But I fucked it up. So my parents and I were searching for a school that would take me in with my barely passing marks. LSM upped my grades so that I would be able to transfer to a “decent” school, but alas, my father did not see the opportunity that LSM gave me. He instead took matters into his own hands.
