People make choice every day. Students choose the class in school. Little children choose the activity they like to do after homework. Graduators choose the job and future. Some choices have good effect in the future life, also some choices are bad. More importantly, some choices will cause huge changes in our lives. Just like in the article “The Joy of Reading and Writing Superman and Me” which was written by Sherman Alexie. In his story, he made an extremely important choice in his life. He decided to save his life by refusing failing in the school work.
In his growing environment, Indian students did not have a fair competition with the non-Indian students. They always want Indian students to be quiet in the classroom. Sherman did not like that. He thought he was smart and chose to change his life. He read more books and believed that he could save his life by books. Finally, he succeed. After reading his story, I remember that I did some important choice when I was young. In my situation, some choices are quite helpful in my future. I think that a great choice is just a start.Order now
The motivation for the choice, family’s support, and the faith of never give up will assist you to make that great choice into success. The motivation which push you to fight for the choice can support people achieve their goal. In the other words, it is you want that achievement. For example, I am an international student. It is hard to a little boy to decide go aboard for study. Like a little bird. He leaves from the cover of their parents, familiar nest, and comfortable life. He spreads his little wings and flies to the spacious sky. I was confused that time.
I do not know my choice to go the USA is correct or not. In the inside of me, I figure that I want to see the outside of the world. I want to increase the value of me. So, I decided that I am going to fight for my choice. During the time of fight, I lost myself once. It is difficult to go to the USA. You need to practice your English skills everyday and get a higher grade in the placement test. I read the English book, finished the reading homework, and wrote the essay over and over again. My friends always suggest me to get some rest. They think I am almost crushed by English.
In my mind, I believe that I can still do it well. Like Sherman said in his story “I am smart. I am arrogant. I am lucky. I am trying to save our lives”. He used all his time read books, studied on the school works. He knew that was only way he can change his life. I tried my best to prove my choice was right. Finally, it worked. I pass the placement test and came to the USA. I am glad that I choose to challenge myself to get higher goal. The choice that I made can be success my family’s support is extremely important. That was a undisputed fact. In many cultures, family always occupies a unique position.
Family is the most soft part in people’s heart. People think that home is always the heaven for soul. That is the reason for why family played in an important role in every society. Family help people to surmount the obstacle and chase the dream by financially support. In my own experiences my father support me to go to the college in the USA by pay the money for everything I cost in here. Before I came here, in the airport, my father told me, “Son, you do not need to worry about the money. You choose this road. You mother and I cannot help you oversea. The only thing we can do is pay the money for you.
Believe in your parent”. I was almost going to cry. I was impressed by my father’s saying. That was the first time for me to think about the family’s importance in my lives. My mother is a sensitive person. She is not as logical as my father on deciding. When I faced some obstacles that I could not over, my mother always gave some useful advise they I can use it to solve the same type question. Like Amy Tan was written in the “Mother tongue”, I want to capture what language ability test can never reveal: her intent, her passion, her imagery, the rhythms of her speech and the nature of her thought.
One time, I did not get a good grade in my math class. I was upset and stressful. Most of my classmate got a great score in the test. I confused by the reasons I did not get the point. Later, I talked to my mother. She thought a while; she said that I gave myself too much pressure. “You need to know how to relax yourself in this situation. Your father and I already know that you are pushed yourself so hard. You also feel that you tried you best in the study. People are difference. Maybe you are not good at math. We do not want you to be the best in the school.
We hope you try your best in anything. Then you will not get regret in your life”. We as human beings do whatever it takes to protect and provide for the good of our family. A faith of never give up also gave me a lots of helps on the way of success. “Never give up. ” These words describes what inside of me and the ways about I doing things. Person has some dreams in his or her life and his or her dream to make it real. Achieving the dream is the most important part of life. Life is of no meaning without dream. I have already made my choice.
All I need to do is working on it and never give up. Maybe I will success or possibly I will fail in the way. At least I tried, I will not regret of that. In China, almost every one told me that the American’s maths class is easy to the Chinese students. I believed that in the China. After I took a math class in college and finally realized that I was wrong. Indeed, the thing teacher taught us in the class that was so easy. The difficult part is I cannot understand what the meaning of the question. I did not do well in the first two test. My math teacher suggested me that to drop this class.
In her thought, she felts that my English skills was pulled me back. I said: “thank you for the concern. But I will fix that. Please give three weeks. ” I never give up. I will show that I can do it. In those three weeks, I felt like a month. Everyday, I learn the math three times. One time is in Chinese. The second time is in English. The third time is for review. In the weekends, I went to the church to practice my listening and speaking skills. I also attended a math club in school. My club friends assisted me a lot. They helped me to understand to questions quickly and told me some trick in the test.
Three weeks later, I changed. I finally follow the class. My English were not pulled me back again. Choice is very important for every individual person in the world. Sometimes if person makes a choice which was against the value of the people, that person will be isolated in his community. I do not know whether my parents agree my choice or not. From now, I can say that at least they are not disagree. I am glad that my parent supporting when I was outside. Also, the inside of me, motivation and a faith make me believe that I did not choose wrong.
