In the word of a French philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, “we are born free but we are everywhere in chains.” In the year 2010, I seem to find myself feeling that I was captive mentally and physically. The days seem faster than the milestones I have set forth to be accomplished. The passing of my youngest brother left me with mixed emotions, and a couple of questions: 1. Should I continue the seemingly endless rat-race-like squirming sperms rushing to get to the almighty kingdom of the golden egg to be fertilized? Or, 2. To set a reachable goal for myself? The latter is my best new year resolution.
