Share I am not a monster
2016-2-25 13:43
This is dedicated to the single, to those who dare to fight against the enormous pressure imposed on them by family and society. About two years ago, I came back from Australia to celebrate Chinese New Year. One day, one of my uncles decided to treat me to lunch. We were talking about my life abroad. Somehow the topic drifted to my classmates in Australia. I told my uncle that I had a very nice Japanese friend. He suddenly asked me how old she was and whether or not she was ma ...

Share My story of English learning
2014-9-15 12:24
Mind you, if you are looking for shortcuts for learning English, you will be disappointed because I don’t really think there are any. I just want to share my experience of learning English with others. And hopefully, people who are keen to learning English can find something helpful after reading this. Like a lot of Chinese students, I started learning English as soon as I entered secondary school. During the three years in my junior high school, I had learnt nothi ...

Share Back in China
2014-8-31 13:49
Back in China So far, I have been back in China for more than a month. What I have experienced during this period of time is the exactly opposite to what I had imagined. While I was still in Australia, I had pictured the bright future ahead of me. At that time, I believed after I came back to China, I would land a decent job, earn good money and visit different places. Now when I recall it, I suppose I was just too naïve. Also, what I cann ...

Share The things you need to know before studying abroad
2014-6-23 09:29
The things you need to know before studying abroad This article is written for Chinese students who want to further their education in English-speaking countries. There are quite a few stereotypes in China surrounding receiving education in an English-speaking country, such as Australia. With the popularity of studying overseas, more and more Chinese international students suffer from those misleading stereotypes. Based on my limited experience, ...

The things I love about Australia
The things I love about Australia So far, I have been living in Australia for approximately one and half years. Soon, I am going to bid farewell to this lovely country. Before I leave, I want to make sure that I pay due tribute to it. Generally, when we hear the very word “Australia”, the first things that jump into our mind will be the breathtakingly beautiful beach, the magnificent tropical forest, the abundant and adorable kangaroos and koa ...

Share Is studying abroad worthwhile?
2014-6-14 22:45
Is studying abroad worthwhile? It would be me lying through my teeth if I claimed that I had never doubted my decision of studying abroad. As a matter of fact, long before I got my offer from Wollongong University, there was one time I became really hesitant because my parents wanted to pull some strings to get me a position in a Chinese state-owned bank. At that time, I was torn between choosing stability and uncertainty. So I decided to turn to my friends for advi ...

Share The lucky dog
2014-6-5 11:59
I had never considered myself lucky before luck finally hit me. You see, I didn’t get high score in Gaokao. So I wound up entering an ordinary university. After four years in that university, I flunk the entrance exam of graduate school. Next, I got this not so ideal job after graduation. But there was this one time, I was the lucky dog. And to me, that one time to be lucky was more than enough to compensate for all the bad luck in the past. While I was studying in ...

Share Aloneliness can be a blessing
2014-6-3 21:22
I want to thank some friends who soptted the mistakes in this article. So I edited it. I suppose we all feel lonely once in a while. However, loneliness seems to be ubiquitous ( a bit exaggerating) when you live in a foreign country. Under this circumstance, you either drown in aloneliness or thrive in it. It goes without saying that there are reasons why Chinese international students (at least those I know here) tend to live a solitary life. To start with, it is extremely diffi ...

Share Why do I want to work in China?
2014-6-2 17:57
Countless people have asked me this question: why don't you work in Australia? And I am getting tired of repeating the answer. So here I want to answer it in great details. To many people, those who want to continue staying abroad after finishing their study in particular, my decision of going back to China after graduation seems not so understandable, especially when I can speak English fluently. Mark this: please do not just assume! The most significant reason why I desire t ...

    Yesses.Though for me the first idea comes to me when thinking about resolutions to the issues on sharing bikes is we develop higher level of moral which could contain our behavior to the better direction, penalty rules actually are supposed to the better method of solving the issues. Penalty rules are always the starting point to change people's perspectives of their behavior.

    shehemego: At my college, there are two bike-sharing companies under their operations of bike sharings. I can see bike-picking-up workers sometimes drive their e ...
    Yeah I do not think I would invest in bike sharing. With better rules I think that bike sharing can be a more valuable social asset helping with transport and pollution reduction and as consumer purchasing power of the Chinese increases larger profit margins will be possible. And yeah there needs to be adequate penalties for abusing the bike sharing system. I read about two Chinese nurses that were jailed in one Chinese city for tampering with share bikes to give them unmetered access and I think this is a bit harsh but appropriate fines could act as suitable deterrent. I wouldnt get hysterical about bike sharing but I think it can work with the right rules and plan.
