about philosophy

Probably not much people know that I was and am a debater. Possibly only my friends, family, and some other members of my organization back home, Tarakanita 2 Scientific Progression Club (TSPC) know. Back when I debated often, I always think more philosophical. I was the 1st speaker or we call it prime minister in the debate (asian style or parliamentary). I miss it, thinking about motion (topic) philosophically while my deputy prime minister or the 2nd speaker, is mostly talking about practical arguments.

However, it is different how I view philosophy now. After studying in higher education, I approach philosophy as something more western and historical, personally. Like Plato, Socrates, and those kind of dudes. I have no idea why, but I see philosophy as more than what I used to  think.


I know.. philosophy, bla bla bla. I don't care and it's a boring post! Well apart from that I had quite some fun today! By the way, these pictures are taken by my roommate, Natalie. Thanks Nat!


Again getting back the Cedar Falls I used to have: hanging out with friends and being energized, like possessed by sugar. Or my friends call it intoxicated by sugar *they are mean :D
watched a very strange cartoon called Alpha and Omega where Wolves are singing when they are supposed to be howling. I have no idea what was going on in the author's mind.


Coming back to book. It is the first week of the class but I have so much assignments and quizzes ready to eat me alive. Good thing is.... we have one extra weekend which is the Martin Luther King day.
Though I have no special plan whatsoever to do, but at least I am doing some grocery shopping with my ex roommate tomorrow, Hanan my duuuude (who gave me a very cute birthday present written: Catherine & Hanan Dudes Forever) haha cute right?



#Fashion. As I am taking creative textile and apparel class this semester, we are asked to think and make a non-traditional fabric. And I have been thinking about creating a dress out of film from camera rolls, and maybe another dress made by belts. I still have no idea how am I going to assemble those without sewing it or taping it. But let's see how it goes :)  #Philosophy: it's all in your mind. Right?


Trying to be inspiring, but seems like I'm tired enough to be bright. So let's see if I am going to post anything exciting tomorrow.

Have a great long weekend all!
