Carpe Diem, is the expression that means
seize the day, means that one should take advantage of every minute of
this life. Many people do not succeed because they are scared about life.
It is very difficult to accomplish anything in this life if they do not
risk themselves or do not do anything to get what they want. One should
enjoy this life in a responsible way. My particular carpe diem philosophy
is do the right thing at the right moment. My parents have taught me
that without effort there is no reward, and that the duties are due before
distraction. The logical order, is not put the cart before the horse. It
does not mean that one is wasting his or her life because he or she is
studying like crazy and during six years the only thing that he or she is
doing is memorizing information.
The reward will come sooner or later when
one gets a marvelous job and is earning money like crazy. Now I am
living and experiencing my own carpe diem philosophy. Now I am
experiencing my golden chance of having a great education, and I have to
make good use of the experience. The opportunity to come United States to
study is very limited for Spanish students. It is limited because even
when the country is not a third world country, Spain is a country not very
rich, and for a person like my it would be not very intelligent to reject
this great chance. Here I am trying to learn as much as possible about
American life style, culture, language and people. My chance was supposed
to expire in one year but now I have the opportunity to not only finish
high school in United States, but also continue...
