fine, it's a little bit complicated...  when i was at the uni, the son of a friend of my family finished a TOEFL
course in New Oriental School in Beijing and found it useful. My dad then asked me to attend such a
course as well, to improve my English level to pass TEM 8 test later. I reluctantly followed his requirement
because i didn't consider TOEFL has anything to do with TEM and at that time i didn't want to study abroad.
However, those lecturers were so excellent, they encouraged us to pursue our study overseas. After
finishing the course, i decided to study abroad and did whatever i could to realize the dream. So here i am,
held a MSc's degree from a UK uni and found a good job in Beijing. I believe i cannot get all of this if i didn't
study abroad. So who changed my life? the son of my family friend? My father? or those teachers in New
Oriental School? or myself?

Who?
--- My parents, who gave birth to me otherwise I might have been born as a lion in the bush.

To good or bad?
--- Too good to be bad.  Life is short, whatever we experienced, are experiencing and will experience, it is, was and will be our life.

生活
是一团麻
那也是麻绳拧成的花

Life-
A flocky mess, a messy flock-
Twisted, knitted into a beautiful pattern.

My parents, teachers, friends, etc. have taught me the usual stuff and the basic things, No much that really and radically changed my outlook or my value.

Somehow, in my life journey, a few rare encounters, an old man, a book, a word, like a SPARK, would jump from them to me. When it did, it let me changed!!
