I agree with Caputo when he interpreted the part which is about obligations. I always think about what is obligation and what I want to do. After I read this article from Caputo, I like the part which is about that we should star to do something which we want to do. Our life time is limit, so we should treasure our life time. Therefore, nothing will be too late to do. No matter our goals are how much hard, we should overcome it. Just do it right now. Also, I do agree that Caputo said nothing is right and wrong. If we want to proof what is right or what is wrong, I think the answer depends on our mind. If you think its right, it would be right. For example, some of the murderers didn’t think it was wrong that they killed somebody. However, I think it is totally wrong to kill somebody. To sum up, I think we just do something which we love to do.

Re: Jen-Ling Chang from Yi-Hsien Chang

I agree with your idea. I think just do what we want to do in our life is must important and fun things. However, I think it is impossible to do what we really want to do in this real world. This is because we always have to do something we don't like to do but we must do. For example, we have to go to work, school, and other boring things. Moreover, I also agree with your other idea. I think human's mind is must powerful thing on this earth because we can do almost anything we want with our mind.
