Follow your heart, be the best of yourself
Hello everyone, I am potter, an ordinary person who is fascinated with English, and I’d like to share two stories about myself here.
The first story is about my English study: I come from an small inland town where the English education is not developed. I get in touch with English until I was at seventh grade, I was interested in English study from the beginning, I tried to remember every new word in the textbook tirelessly, and read every sentence in the textbook loudly time and time again.But I learned dumb English at my middle school stage after all, how could your English accent be native while your teacher’s pronunciation is not standard, and the only way for me to learn English is from my teacher when I don’t have computer and even have no idea about internet. When i went to college, I found some of my classmates’ oral English are very good in my oral English lesson, I was so frustrated that i couldn’t even open my mouth then, so I decided to make some changes.I went to English corner inside or outside of my school once I was available, gradually,I became more and more confident, and of course my oral English made a big progress after some days.After my graduation, monotonous life drove me crazy, I began to miss my old days of English study in college, then I happened to find Haizhu square online.I am glad to find that I can meet people from different fields and broaden my eyesight here,and I really appreciate the volunteers’ efforts of building such a wonderful English study platform.
The second story is about my career position:as my major is acoustic,naturally I went into a loudspeaker manufacture and be a acoustic engineer after my graduation, but I found my job was tedious after half a year,then my instinct told me why not give a shot at international trade work since I like English and communicating with others so much.After one tough week,I decided to quit my job and turn to international trade field. In my opinion, it is not a shame for me to give up my major and do what I like.
At last, I’d like to quote a sentence from steve job’s speech at stanford university graduation ceremony in 2005 as a farewell message: your work will fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is a great work,and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.If you haven’t found it yet,keep looking,and don’t settle, as with all matters of the heart, you will know when you find it,and like any great relationships,it just get better and better as years go on,so keep looking,don’t settle.
