PHILOSOPHY BRAINSTORMING: Who am I? What do I believe about life, truth, my future? What do I believe is my purpose? How does the way I live and approach life reflect who I am and what I value?

Think about what texts that we’ve read specifically connect to me
Big ideas, images, lines, etc.

Philosophy, the rational investigation of the truths and principles of being, knowledge, or conduct.
My philosophy on life is to always be yourself and to shoot for the moon. Through the trials and errors of my life, I have realized that the only thing that really and truly matters in this world is being yourself and pursuing your goals. I have learned that some people don't like you or accept you for you. It doesn't matter what others think of you. Their thoughts and actions shouldn't influence you in the slightest bit. You shouldn't have to change who you are to make others like you, it's their loss.
They have no control over you. You are who you are and nobody can change that. Through my fast paced life, filled with school, homework, sports, friends, and family, I have also learned that you can be what ever you want to be. If you truly want it, go and get. You can be anything you set out to be. I find it difficult to fully explain myself. It's not because I am so empty, it's because I am so full. There is too much to share and explain. But the things I find most important to my heart are to be true to yourself, and above all, just be who you are and shoot for nothing less than you are capable of.






If you asked me whats on my mind you probably won’t believe it.
Human as to human
If life was one big pool I’d be in the deep end.

While you just try to figure me out.
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul
and I say It's alright.
I've got some issues that nobody can see,
It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue.




hello-my-name-is.jpg



That's not my name.
She traveled this road as a child
Wide eyed and grinning.
the girl with the broken smile
I speak my own sins;
I cannot judge another.
I'm not the average girl from your video
I can't change your mind, you can't change my color
I cannot sleep for dreamin';
I cannot dream but I wake and walk about the house
as though I'd find you comin' through some door.
I'm feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine,
Make my dreams come true.
The way you play your game ain't fair.
That's just how you live.
Take a bite of my heart,
Take it all.
Take me away,
Kidnap my heart.



Reminisce days of the innocence,box_of_chocolates.jpg
Life is like a box of chocolates.
Remember you was a kid,
Into everyday life.
The future is no place,
You never know what you're gonna get.
There is in every village a torch.
The world keeps spinning around.
I keep on running.
I keep on ducking.
And nothing works,
I can't stop missing you.










I'll be up, up, and away
balloons-1300.jpg
they gonna judge me anyway
Winners never quit,
quitters never win.
Get up, stand up:
stand up for your rights!
Here comes the sun.

Easy come, easy go.
I was shooting for stars,
They say what goes up,
Must come down.
Don’t let me fall.
This is the soundtrack to my life.
