First, I’d like to thank you for your visit to my place these days. I was delighted when you told me you had read through most of the entries in my blog. An English blog attracts fewer visitors due to some difficulties in understanding what I am writing here, and that was why I told you “my sofa is so easy to get..” Heehee. I agree to what you said, I write
in English not to arrest more eyes, but to go on with my old habbit formed many years ago. But, in any case, I always appreciate your support. I am impressed by your English, particularly when I learned that you were a senior high school student that had just taken the national entrance exam in June. As a high school student, your English is fairly good: fluent, with very few mistakes in it. I do think you are qualified as an English major, and you will finally make it!
You also mentioned in your comments that you did not do very well in the exam and might not be enrolled by your ideal college. Sure, you are feeling frustrated. As far as I am concerned, however, college entrance exam is important, but it is not everything. Even if you fail to enter your ideal one, you can still learn what you like in another college. Keeping this in your mind, you will feel relieved and relaxed. You may come acrosss some transitory harships in your life,but it is not the Doomsday, not the end of the world. Just think this way: It took you 10 days to cover 1000 miles, now you need to spend a few more days reaching the destination. It’s just a matter of a bit more time and you can still achieve your goals. It isn’t a big deal, is it? Remember, all roads lead to Rome, right? If I can’t reach my destination through a shortcut, I still have other ways to take. Leave the stuff to yourself and I believe you can manage it well.
guess you also love English and writing in English, too. I began to write English diaries in senior high school and went on with it for years. Sometimes I would find them out and read. I couldn’t help smiling when reading those “naive” pieces, some even full of mistakes. I know clearly it is they that have been supporting and pushing me forward through the years. Last June, I applied for this blog and resumed writing after so many years of suspension. I think it a good way of sharpening my writing skills while recording something happening in my life. Maybe you can also start doing so. It will surely do much good to your English learning.
After two days of rain, we will have some muggy days again. The sweltering weather is beginning to show its teeth now. Nevertheless, to enjoy the coolness we have to endure the heat first. To see the most beautiful rainbow we have to undergo thunderstorms. Life is always beautiful.
BTW, I recommend you a movie, Pursuit of Happiness, by Will Smith. I am sure you will like it. And you will learn something from it, too.
