Share Never Give Up On Life
2017-1-15 21:11
This past week, a former classmate of mine in high school, took his own life. No one knew that he was depressed or any had any idea that something was wrong. He was 4 weeks away from retiring from a job he'd held for nearly 40 years. His name was Brian. Brian was one of the happiest, most positive and truly humorous people you'd ever meet.

I was selected as the top blogger of 2013, but, withdrew my name to future competitive events after that, due to the fact that I h ...

However, English has many irregular verbs where this grammar rule does not apply. You must learn these irreg ...

    Ture but most Chinese return to China Plus if your have not mastered English a degree from Harvard with a 75% average means nothing. Now if you end up in the top 10% of your class then by all means it is better. But really how many Chinese end up in the top 10% in any USA university? Maybe 1 out of 10,000.If you do not want to return to China then yes Harvard Degree is better.
