One of my fdz is gonna study in Thailand for 1 year. She'll leave next week. I just came back from the farewell party. Very informal, no toasts, no tears.  Her plane will leave on 6:30am next week. I can't go see her off! Pity! Just wish her plain trip!

Met 2 other girls from senior high aside from the host. I grow taller after being fed in Northern China for 4 yrs, so I'm the tallest among 'em! Confidence! Yew-pee!  

One is studying medicine n doing her internship here in a local hospital. She's a typical TOMBOY. Still very boyish. Her way of walking n talking never changed.  B4 we said goodbye, she suddenly asked if I studied in the same school with her!   I knew her n still remember her. Gosh! I've changed a lot! Not as boyish, but still sporty sometimes.

One also studied English in Beijing. Now back n trying to find a job. We were classmates. But in the past 4 yrs, I never attended the class reunion. (I'm not into those stuff u know) Thus it's the 1st time in 4 years I met her. Actually, no one really changed except for me n a girl who is a journalist in a local tv station. Then they mentioned another girl, who is also an English major, is working for P&G in Beijing.

While they were talking, yours truly was just sitting there, listening n thinking.

1. What my life will be like if I didn't screw the National College Entrance Examination?

Then I could boast of my uni wherever I go. I wouldn't ended in a common uni in the West either. Life can be unfair. You don't always get what u grow. But do I regret now after graduation? When I look back, an answer "NO!" echoes.  Not in the least! Though I don't enjoy my life in Xi'an. I didn't gain less than those who study in the East. I'm even more successful in terms of academic achievement. God shut the door of top uni, but I learnt many great lessons in Xi'an which I believe contribute a lot to the formation of today's Joyce.

Then what I get after being denied by top uni in China?

① Independence

② Perseverance

③ Critical Thinking

④ Genuine Friendship. To be honest,  I didn't meet any new fdz on campus over the 4 years coz I don't really have time. I spent 90% of my time studying. The rest 10% was practically spent entertaining myself, ALONE. I'm alone, but by no means lonely. With Negro IBM,  I started friendship with people outside of China. Funny, though we never really meet in life, they are even more important than those I meet everyday.

True! Not everyone online is trust-worthy. But I do find a couple of real friends n we've established genuine frienship which hopefully, could last for life!  Sometimes I even feel I don't really deserve it! It never crosses my mind that I could ever befriend "that-kinda" person! Too magical!

With the degree, 4 years'  scholarship, certificates, I graduate with honor! Then what's the point of regretting?  Wut I've learnt  in a common uni are far more valuable than a mere degree from one of the top uni.

 

 

2. What if I didn't take the Gradschool Entrance Exam.

① Applying a gradschool in Singapore. Arranger : My mom.   (My Dad is strongly against. Reason: Safety)

② Study in Paris.  Arranger: My school.  (All my faimily is in support)

③ Like other classmates, find a job in Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou with handsome salary.

Admittedly, Xi'an has more opportunities. And I believe I could secure a job in one of the international corporations by strokes of luck. Again, I don't regret. No regret of choosing an ok gradschool in my hometown when I have the potential to study in the top ones.

When I step into the society n try my feet in the job-market, I finally realize what I should learn to increase my negotiation power in 3 years . I call 'em "Joyce's 3-S" [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED]

①Social Experiences. Those employers are not dumb. They buy me, pay me because I could help 'em profit. In other words, they could use me the 1st day I work for 'em. No one wanna train me, coz training costs their money! I still have a lot to learn, from the basic one - using the copy / fax machine, writing business letters... 

②Social Networks. I read something on MANKEEP online yesterday. According to a report from Standford uni, 87.5% of one's wealth is from mankeep while only 12.5% from ur knowledge. Plus, 80% of one's success is from socialization n 20% is from himself. Conclusion is - one should keep the following 10 kinda fdz.

< Colored: I already have 'em as fdz >

* Those who could get u tickets that are sometimes hard to get.  (To flatter ur important client when needed)

* Travel Agent (get discount air-ticket)

* Headhunter

* Those who work in the bank

* Local government officals n police

* Celebrities

* Experts of banking n financing

* Lawyer

* Repairman

* Media

③ Specific arena to put my talent into full play. Keatsschool taught me a great lesson!

Beside learning etiquette, there is still a long way to go. I'm not as ready as Beijing. But I could still hide in my gradschool for self-improvement. 3 years can be short, can be long!

I'm really sick of those who preach "Top students in school always end moderate in society" coz I'm gonna change it! Just u wait, dumbskull!

 

The world is waiting for me.

 

 

D'ici au succès, J'ai aussi un chemin long de parcourir!
