On Saturday, April 27th, I had the great opportunity to volunteer and make an appearance at the MLA of Burnaby North, Richard T. Lee’s, Fundraising Dinner at Floata Seafood Restaurant in Downtown, Vancouver.
On April 17th, myself and five other grade 10 girls from my school were picked to see Colonel Chris Hadfield at Hard Rock Theatre, Coquitlam, where we attended an event called “Create Your Future” organized by the BCIT School of Transportation. I honestly don’t know why we were chosen, but we were a lucky bunch, and seeing Chris Hadfield in person was definitely a spectacular experience.
On April 9th, I accomplished a goal that took me more than 10 years to achieve: I passed my Royal Conservatory of Music piano level 10 exam. I feel quite weird about finishing this long and incredible journey where, when I was young, I would have never imagined that I could make it to the end. The thought that all my practicing was worth the time is very satisfying and overwhelming at the same time.
The point of this post is to discuss “life” in general, even though it may seem like the title has nothing to do with “life.”
I was recently inspired from a thought-provoking question brought up by my English teacher, Mr. Roberts, after studying various works of literature and trying to learn a little more on the human condition.
The question was: Ultimately, what exactly are we living for?
