Reflection: The Goal of Blogging

Posted by C Moon on February 11, 2008

My goal of blogging has been all along to portray my life journey, “Working towards my dream.” I know that many blogs have a concentration or two, but I wish to keep the current scope of my blog.

I enjoy learning and participating in something new. This semester, I am lucky to assistant-direct a theatrical production. I love reading detective stories. Agatha Christie is my favorite mystery writer and her stories inspired me to consider a detective or a forensic expert as one of my career goals. I am enchanted with martial arts of the world. I am a 4th-dan black-belt holder in Taekwondo, and aim to learn more others (my next interest lies in capoeira). I love watching the Nature. Photography, capturing moments in time and space, interests me. I hold many other dreams and want to learn various things. I may become a scientist, a mathematician, a detective, an archaeologist, or something else in the future.

Considering time constraint and my limited ability, I do not think that I will be able to express all these aspects of me on my blog. However, I will continue to try sharing myself with others and stepping into the broad virtual world.

Goals versus Happiness

Posted by C Moon on December 7, 2007

In his essay Coming Home Again, Chang-Rae Lee remembers the last days with his mother. Because she was suffering from cancer, the whole family, i.e., Chang-Rae, his sister, and his father, were trying to create a last fond memory if possible. Particularly, Chang-Rae tries to cook many tasty cuisines to stimulate his mother’s appetite. Actually, her last days with her family are a compensation for her long sacrifice. By setting her goal to be her husband’s success and her children’s happiness, Chang-Rae’s mother constantly lowers herself. Moreover, she sends Chang-Rae to a boarding school solely for his success. Even when she cries in the car, the one who makes her cry, Chang-Rae, does not even know that. Though the mother sacrificed her early goals, she was only able to get a slight happiness when her life reached the end.

Chang-Rae’s mother left aside her goals and devoted herself for the others; however, she ultimately failed to attain her happiness. When people seek their own goals, people are more likely to achieve their happiness. After all, people set their goals because they do know what they need for their own happiness.
