10/30 journal excerpt...

…maybe I shouldn’t be so judgmental or presupposing.  Maybe he owns his own business, contracts this work and does quite well.  I don’t have for– that’s at the peak, the highest and most atmospheric of my wish list.  524 more words

She was a Singer Performing on her stage!

No, this post is not about me, neither it is ‘exactly’ about these beautiful children, though it is about them. It is about HER, whose picture we didn’t have the courage to click. 142 more words

You too could be a novelist!

National Novel Writing Month begins November 1. NaNoWriMo (for short) encourages writers of all ages, including school-age kids, to write a novel in one month. How it works is simple: register your novel idea on the website, keep track of your novel as you write and compare your progress with others taking the challenge, and earn merit badges along the way. 161 more words

印度尼西亚大学生:还是成绩最重要。Indonesian Students: Grades Still is Number One.

上个星期就是期中考试。考完以后,是不是肯定会觉得很开心?(我自己太开心了!)考完以后,我才有时间想一想,看看在我周围里,朋友们对考试的态度是什么样的。我发现,从开始学习,到准备考试的时候,我的同学们差不多都没有什么差别。

开始学习新的课,同学们都很着急,如果他们不能做好问题。他们最常听到的话就是:“怎么做这样的问题,怎么做那样问题?” 然后能做好些问题以后,他们又着急问着教授:“以后,考试的时候,您会给我们什么样的问题?”

我觉得这样的情况有点奇快。是不是?

奇快的是:他们不怕不明白课里的学习资料,他们只怕不能拿到好成绩。不只是学生们,但是也有些教授们,对我们说:“是不是你们的目的就是学好,所以能毕业,拿到好的成绩呢?”

可能这个情况跟我们的生活趋势有关系。他们都想的是能尽快毕业,然后找到好的工作,然后能自己独立地生活。好成绩意思就是更容易找好的工作,好工作就可以说生活更容易。独立生活不是不好,好工作也不是不重要。可是,我觉得,如果学习只是为了成绩,然后以后学过的东西就不能有什么用,那学习是不是就没有什么意思了吗?

我知道,也不能说每个学到的课对我们的未来很重要。可是,如果成绩好,但是没有能力,那不是更没有什么好处吗?过了好成绩和不好的成绩,我自己觉得,有些课,我的成绩不太高,但是,我真的学到些能力和知识。也有些课,我的成绩很好的,不过,对那些课没有什么印象。

我觉得,学习应该是很有意思的经历,学生应该感觉到有好奇心,想知道新的学识。然后,学了些东西,感觉到学个痛快。我真的不想付我在大学的时间天天很着急,怕不能拿到好成绩。我要好好学习,欣赏当学生的时间。

你呢?赞成?

Last week is mid-term exam week. Ain’t it just pure happy after the tests are over? (I’m totally exalted myself!) After the tests are over, I finally got some time to think, take a look at my surroundings, how are my friends’ attitude towards the tests. 390 more words
