Create Your Own Life
Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but upon reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you never would have realized yourpotential, strength, willpower, or heart.
Illness, injury, lost moments of true greatness, andsheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of yoursoul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helpedyou learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everythingthat you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again.
Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and listen to what they have to say. Youcan make anything you wish of your life.
Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

Aid Education in China
Each year, college students, encouraged to aid students in the poverty-stricken areas, volunteer themselves in poor villages for a year and try to improve education in poor areas.
Aid-education has been beneficial in two aspects. On the one hand, college volunteers are really devoted to the cause. They have opened the eyes of students in underdeveloped regions to the outside world by bringing them new knowledge and thoughts. As a result, they are extremely well-received by the children there. On the other hand, college students have received a rigorous training by adapting to the harsh living conditions. They are enjoying the appreciation and no-distance friendship from the children. What’s more, they are greatly inspired by the moving and tireless spirit of the children.
In my opinion, China’s educational development can’t be isolated from each individual and we college students should take the lead in response to the appeal for offering aid to children in poor areas.
