The Happiest Day, Daydream

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keynes @ 4:59 am

I have sailed across the ocean to find my fortune. It was the one of the happiest day in my entire life, the day I arrived at the shore of the United States of America. I believe the fortune is at my hands.

When I was in a major class two years ago, I did not focus on the lecture, but daydreamed. ‘What if I go to study abroad?’ As a matter of fact, for students who have Taxation major in my home country, it is uncommon to decide to study abroad because their career is guaranteed after the graduation as a government employee. However, I wanted to break from the peer group’s pressure. Thus, I have considered studying abroad seriously; and, I could not stop the daydreaming until boarding the airplane to the U.S.

After got to here, I feel often depressed by a lot of stuffs to do. Moreover, due to the lack of language skill, I even feel be isolated sometimes like as there is a predicament between I and others. However, whenever had any problems, I asked myself. ‘What if I did not daydream at that moment?’

Honestly, both of the U.S. and studying at UTD are the happiness by themselves.

I am still on the journey of hope the fortune. Without that, I cannot say about anything.

  1. This is so inspiring! 😀 Don’t give up, and your English is understandable and better than a lot of people who try to learn it.

    • Hold on, that wasn’t worded right…”better than a lot of other people’s English” would be right. See, I’ve spoken/written English my entire life and I still mess up sometimes. 😛

  3. That’s really awesome that you went ahead and followed your dreams. Also don’t even worry about the language thing, even though we haven’t talked much I can understand you just fine, and your writing is way better than mine!
