How can we find truth in a world of ambiguity?

When one thinks of truth, one relates the word with reality, something we think we know for certain exists only in one way. Therefore, if something is perceived as untruthful, it should not exist in the realm we refer to as real. People tend to have confirmatory bias, in which they assure that others agree with their preconceived judgement as to hinder any other ambiguous consideration. If we lose this habit of inductive reasoning, truth would become elusive, as people would be open to more meanings of the same thing. But as most people are reluctant to deny volatile facts, the most agreed-upon evidence becomes acknowledged as true. So in conclusion, truth can only be found in the subjectivity of others’ notions.

The following terror attacks in Belgium shocked me. I thought it was unexpected that it even happened. The fact that the people had feared it would happen is tragic as their worst nightmare became a reality. I hope the country can quickly recover from this spontaneous catastrophe as those numerous people who became victims to the bombs were innocent, and their loved ones, as well as the world, have to mourn their lost. I also hope the group responsible for the execution of this horrible atrocity reevaluate their morals, as violence should not be an answer to whatever their cause is. I pray for all the affected people, as well as hope another attack does not happen.

March Break

For March Break, I will finally be able to sleep in!!! I actually had a consistent sleep schedule during school weeks, but this last break before the break broke it… And with daylight savings coming along, the break is the perfect time to fix my sleeping habits (hopefully). Aside from having a schedule to work on my EE and over-the-break homework, I am putting aside some days to chill with friends. Also, I can have time to play the games I bought from a sale back during the winter break!!! I’m happy and I hope everyone spends their March Break the way they want to!

What new literary feature did you discover while “book chatting” with your partner today?

With my book chat with Ashley and Andrea, I was introduced to the food imagery used in chapters 6-8 that I overlooked. Beloved is described to be hungry for Sethe’s storytelling, which is reflected in the food that Sethe was cooking prior to her reminiscing.
