Share The value of higher education
Min1989 2017-10-8 11:20
The value of higher education I have been planning to write this for some time. But there is always something getting in the way. Mark this please: I am not writing to dish out suggestions about how you or any of us should live a life. The sole purpose of this piece of writing is to record my thoughts and to be used as reference in the future to examine my revolution of mentality. My determination of writing this culminated when I bumped into an article titled as “Should Every ...

Share Student & Teacher
Min1989 2017-9-12 11:48
Student Teacher I was a difficult student, naughty, rebellious and disobedient. I was so attention-craving that I would go against virtually all the not-so-important wishes or orders made by my teachers. I never excelled in academic studying, nor any other field. Even though I made to the top of class sometimes, that came like a flash in the pan. Of course, without a shred of doubt, I was never likable or anywhere near a standardized good ...

Share Paper Towns
Min1989 2017-6-12 15:36
I decided to read Paper Towns mainly because I thoroughly enjoyed another book "The Fault in Our Stars" written by the same author-John Green. But I honestly believe this one isn't as good as the another one I read before. I personally reckon the former one about life, death and relationship is rather thought-provoking as well as tear-jerking to a certain extent. But this one which focuses on growing pains we all experience when we are maturing seems to pale a bit compared with that book. ...

Share 30
Min1989 2017-5-17 11:51
Strictly speaking, I am still a step away from turning 30. Here I just want to write down my feelings for the soon approaching 30. 30 in Chinese traditional culture is quite special which is shown in the Chinese saying that a man should be independent at the age of 30. In many people's mind, someone should have already achieved some important things in life at this age including having formed his/her family, having climbed to a certain level on the ladder of ca ...

Share Dangal
Min1989 2017-5-15 10:55
The day I watched Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was when the movie 'Dangal' started being shown in the mainland of China. If I had known it was such a great movie, I would go to watch this instead. The Hollywood blockbuster is lame on many levels compared with this Indian movie. People on social networking websites started lavishing praise on this movie as soon as it was shown in cinemas. I finally got to watch this well-applauded movie today. I knew a bit of t ...

Share Lord of the Flies
Min1989 2017-5-9 15:27
Lord of the Flies I noticed this must be a classic years ago as it was always on the recommending list of books sent to me by Amazon. But I never thought that I would get hold of it and finish reading it to know the mystery of the story. I decided to read it mainly because of the conversation I had with one of my students. She told me that her English teacher asked them to read this book and analyze the characters depicted in this novel and then write an essay about ...

Share The Sun is Also a Star
Min1989 2017-5-9 15:25
The Sun is Also a Star This book was on the top 20 books in 2016 recommended by the editor of Amazon. According to the brief introduction in the post, this book is about a love story. Generally, love stories don't deserve that much applaud as even though love has always been considered an eternal topic, love is too universal to inspire or to enlighten people on different levels like some great books dealing with more serious topics do. I know normally this sort of b ...

Share What I didn't know
Min1989 2017-4-27 17:27
In the past half year, quite a lot of emotional tumult has been witnessed in my life. For some time, I was even sightly depressed. One of my friends even suggested me to seek for professional advice. Nothing made me happy. I was utterly disappointed with myself and with my life. About two and half years ago when I was hunting for a job after securing my master degree, I wrote this blog about how harsh reality hit me in a totally unexpected way and in a way sort of dragged me ...

Share My Bike?
Min1989 2017-3-19 10:17
My Bike? Last weekend, I was hanging out in the downtown with my friend and sister. We were walking at a public spare when all of a sudden a heated arguing between a student and a middle-aged woman arrested our attention. Out of curiosity, we all stopped to look around and found that they were arguing over an Ofo bike which recently got quite popular in this city along with two other bike-sharing companies including Mo-bike. From what we observ ...

7. Life teaches us a lot of lessons which I believe that we would be far better off with first hand experience regarding to those lessons rather than second hand one. This also perfectly explains why we cannot lead a decent life after being lectured by others all these years. Our parents always believe that we should follow their advice because they have been through the journey we are taking and because they are giving their hard-earned lessons to us so that we can ...
