College Graduates Work as Village Officials
There is no denying the fact that it is a hotly debated topic today how college graduates should choose their careers. Some time ago, it was reported that some college graduates chose to work as village officials. To this people’s attitudes differ sharply. Some hold the positive view while others are against it. As far as I am concerned, I believe that it is a wise choice.
On the one hand, college graduates can contribute a lot to the development of the countryside. First, they can apply their professional knowledge there. Secondly, they can introduce new concepts to the countryside and speed the development of rural culture. As a result, the gap between the city and the countryside can well be bridged.
On the other hand, these graduates can benefit a lot from working as village officials. While too many college graduates are fighting for the handful of positions in big cities, these graduates can find themselves a wider stage of development and realize their value.
Therefore, college graduates working as village officials is a win-win choice and more graduates should be encouraged to work in the countryside.
More and more college students choose self-help trayelijig rather than arranged tours when they plan to travel. The reason inay be that by ananging the route, booking cheaper hotels and taking cheaper transportation means 2.W by themselves, they can save a lot of money.
Convenient and economical as self-help traveling sounds, it still has some potential problems Perhaps the most important one is the safety hazard. Being alone without a group or a tour guide, a traveler may be helpless in face of danger, i.e. robbery, wild animal attacks, etc. In addition, they are more Eikely to be at risk of getting lost when traveling alone in a strange city or in the remote countryside.
In my view, self-help traveling can be exciting and challenging which is worth trying. However, before setting out alone on a tour, travelers should make good preparations. Besides, they should hear security in mind all the time and keep ia touch with their friends or relatives. By doing soa they can enjoy the pleasure of exploring a strange city safe and sound.
It is really a common scene in college classroom and lectures: students are engaged in whatever they can think of except listening carefully to their teachers and reflecting actively on what is taught. For example, they are busy with sleep, playing games with the phone, communication with friends through short messages. Some students even are absent from classes.
This phenomenon is worrying and attracting a lot of discussion among the people concerned. There is an opinion that class attendance should be optional. Firstly, the students have the freedom to choose their universities, their majors, and definitely are free to choose whether or not to go to classes. Secondly, the teaching quality has a great influence on the students choice. Thirdly, if the students are forced to the classroom, their careless attitude hurts both the teacher who may feel his effort is not worthy and other hard-working classmates who may be distracted.
Career or Family: which is more important?
When asked about their opinion of career and family, people always respond differently. Some people deem it more important to pursue their career, while there are always other people who argue that family should be the number one in one’s life.
It goes without any question that career plays a key role in our life. In the very first place, career can give us an aim to live on. Without career, much of our living time will be certainly wasted. What’s more, career can provide us with a means to live on. Most of the people earn their income from a job. On the other hand, family is also an indispensable part of life, as many people will admit. Family is always regarded as a place where we can escape from troubles in life. In addition, we can obtain a sense of belonging to from family. Without it, anyone will feel lonely and desperate.
In my opinion, career and family are not in opposition to each other. Rather, they can enhance each other so that one’s life can become better and better. Therefore, it’s not a choice between right and wrong, but one between ideal and practical.
In recent years, credit cards have gained more popularity among college students. With banks more focus on college market, an increasing number of college students have applied for a credit card and begun to consume by it.
The following three factors can account for the popularity of credit cards in college. Firstly, a credit card provides overdrawing service, which is a big attraction for those students who have no much money for their domination. Secondly, a credit card can help release financial burdens on those poor students, and hence reduce the risk of their dropping school for lacking money. Besides, many banks make some preferential policies on credit cards, like sending a gift, lowering year cost. Drawn by these policies, many college students apply for credit cards.
My View on NEET
注:NEET是Not Currently Engaged in Education,Employment or Training或Not in Education,Employment or Trainin9的缩略语,即我们所说的“啃老族”。
My View on NEET
Now in China the problem of NEET has been brought into public attention.NEET refers to the group of people who are not currently engaged in education,employment or training,instead they just stay at home,relying on their parents.
There are mainly two reasons for this phenomenon.For one thing, since the expansion of university enrollment in l999,an increasing number of college graduates have poured into the job-hunting market.However, some of them are not fully prepared and become unemployed.For another, some young people are the only child of their family and badly spoilt.As a result,they are psychologically dependent even when they grow up.
To solve this problem,first.colleges or the communities should provide pre-job training courses for the young.Second,parents should cultivate their childrens sense of independence in their childhood.Last but not least,college students also have to equip themselves with skills and knowledge and get ready to compete tomorrow.
Should Graduates Spend Much on Job Hunting?
Nowadays college graduates spend more and more money on job hunting. According to a recent survey, almost every graduate spends some money on finding a job. And clothing, transportation, resumes producing and training expense are the main aspects that cost them a lot of money.
As to this phenomenon, different people have different views. Some say it is necessary for graduates to spend money in producing embellished resumes and buying suitable clothes, which can give interviewers a good impression and increase their chance of success. However, others don’t think so. They argue that the high expenditure can increase their parents’ financial burden since most students have no regular income. Apart from that, the decorated resumes do little help to find a job because most HR managers pay more attention to skills.
In my opinion, there is nothing wrong for graduates to invest some money on job hunting. But they should bear in mind that it is their knowledge, skills as well as experience that matter a lot. So they must have a rational attitude toward what they should buy and how much money they should spend.

The seats in our school reading-room are not enough for all the students. Many people get there very early to "seize" a seat every day. So do I. One day a "special" thing happened to me. And I learned a lesson that I shall never forget.
It happened on a Wednesday morning last January, just before our final examation. I got to the reading-room very early to occupy a seat. I put a book on the desk and then went to have breakfast. But when I hurried back into the reading-room, I found someone was sitting on the seat which I had occupied in advance. I ran to him immediatly and shouted at him angrily, "Go away. Its my seat." Everyone raised their eyes and stared at me unfriendly. My face turned red and I felt ashamed of myself. I took my book and fled helter-skelter before so many eyes.
I dared not go to the reading-room for several days. I learned a lesson in the reading-room. Since then I have been keeping the lesson in mind: To be polite to everyone.
The seats in our school reading-room are not enough for all the students. In order to "seize" a seat, I go there very early every morning. Just because of this, a special story happened to me one day. I learned a lesson in the reading-room that I will remember all my life.
It took place on a Monday morning in October. After occupying a seat in the reading-room, I went to fetch a bottle of boiled water. When I returned to the reading-room, I found that a girl student was sitting on my seat. Immediately I ran to her and shouted at her angrily, "Why have you taken my seat? Go away.!" Everybody in the reading-room looked up from their books at me unfriendly. At once I brushed with shame. I rushed out of the reading-room with my book. I can never forget those "eyes".
This is the lesson Ive learned in the reading-room: I shall respect other people.

Optimism is the Road to a Promising Future.
Our history has been filled with a variety of enlightening sayings, and the following is no exception: if you shed tears when you miss the sun, you will also miss the stars. This remark can be naturallyassociated with the significance of optimism: if one intends to witness a promising future, it isadvisable for him to be optimistic.
Optimism is the key to success in all fields of activity, and it can be likened to the road to apromising future. First, as a vital psychologicalquality, optimism brings us power, arouses our enthusiasm for work, and helps us overcomedifficulties. Second, it is optimistic attitude that enables people to build upconfidence, hope and courage. As a matter of fact, successful peoplehave come to realize the necessity of optimism in life, work and study.
Is Homeschooling Advisable?
Today, a growing number of children in China are staying at home, not because they are giving up education but because their parents think they will actually receive a better education at home. They are being homeschooled at every level - kindergarten, primary, junior middle and even senior middle school.
People’s opinions vary on homeschooling. Some people support it, saying China’s current education mode puts heavy study pressure on students and many of them suffer from depression and even commit suicide. Some oppose it, maintaining that students need interaction with classmates, so that they can fit into society. Still, there are people who insist that homeschooling is a game for rich people only, which cannot be expanded to the whole of society.
Personally, I think homeschooling is advisable as long as the family can afford it. As people’s personalities differ, so education should be diversified. What’s more, we do have successful examples of homeschooling. For example, Zheng Yuanjie, a famous Chinese writer of children’s stories had his son study at home after his son finished primary school study. Today, his son has grown up to be a successful person.
A Smile Is the Best Language
It has long been accepted that a smile is the best language.The truth of a smile is that it is like a seed that can grow into a towering tree and at long last it has deep and profound effect on people’s lives.
At the moment we get in trouble,get misunderstood or give thanks,a smile is more helpful than any other expression.Many daily incidents can probe the strength/power of smile.To begin with,we should always smile to ourselves,so as to keep optimistic when in difficulty.At the same time,smiling to others is necessary,too.Sometimes,we may face misunderstandings that are hard to explain clearly simply bu words.Then, a smile can show them the genuine sincerity to win their trust.Besides, smile is a worldwide language to say “thanks” and can bring pleasant feelings to others.
In a word,perhaps the best example of universally understood body language is smile.As the old saying goes,smile to others,and sooner or later they will smile back to you.
Want to be a small fish in a big pond or the other way round? Every graduate faces this question when he starts his career. A large number of college graduates prefer to stay in the big cities. To them, big cities mean more experiences, more opportunities to see the big world and more space for career development. At the same time, higher salary is another temptation.
But some other graduates want to start in small towns. Even though there may not be many big companies, they can have a quieter and less competitive life. Another reason is that they can be a big fish in a small pond. They can easily get the management’s attention and may win promotion earlier.
As far as I am concerned, I prefer to start in a metropolis like Shanghai. A good begin is half the battle, and in Shanghai I can find a job in a big company where I can meet people from different places and cultures. I will learn from them what I can not get from textbooks.
Nowadays, with the rapid development of our society, almost all the graduates have to face a choice: to get a job first or to find the job you like first? As far as I am concerned, the graduates should get a job first and then choose the job they like. The reasons can be listed as follows:
First of all, for many students, even they themselves don’t know what kind of job they want to choose. For these students, to get a job first can help them find out their favorite job through trying different work. What’s more, the graduates are all under great employment pressure. There are thousands of graduates need to find their jobs every year. So if the graduates don’t get their jobs as soon as they leave the school, they will miss the best chance to get a job. Last but not least, one can accumulate experience and broaden horizons in his or her first job. It’s certain that these experiences will contribute to future job. As the famous saying goes “One should apply theory to practice.”, students should apply what they have learned in class to their jobs, thus enhancing their working skills.
Above all, nowadays under the greater employment pressure, the graduates should get a job first and then to choose the job they like. Since students can have a better understanding of what they like and gain experience in the first job.
Fast Food is more popular though citizens, especially young man and children. They eat them at least once a week.
The time of the people to have a break and to eat meal is compressed by citizens who work hard though the fast pace of life in modern society. So they choose Western Fast Food which is made to convenient and you-dont-wait, of course its delicious, that they can have much more time to work.
As for children, maybe Fast Food is the in-thing among them. Eating a KFC will be pride in their young heart. They will share the experience of enjoying KFC or MacDonald to their best friends. Unforgettable delicious for children is as it should be.
As far as I am concerned, the collective canteen which should offer high quality food must be opened more by company. For children, parents ought to educate kids what is healthy food and what food shouldnt be eat more.
How to improve psychological health?
As is known to all, psychological health is as important as, if not more important than, physical health for a student during his/her growth. However, it’s quite worrying that nowadays some students are not quite psychologically healthy.
Undoubtedly, schools and universities should take great account in the responsibilities of students’ psychological health. Relevant courses and activities should be introduced to students so that they would be more aware of the significance of psychological health and find appropriate ways to maintain and improve it. For example, there should be a psychological counseling hotline or office for students to turn to when they need some psychological aid.
Of course no psychological health can be obtained without the efforts from the students themselves. From my perspective, what they can do is trying to stay positive, optimistic and follow the right guidelines from their schools. To be more specific, they can participate in some activities such as voluntary work to cultivate an opening and caring mind. Meanwhile, harmful impacts from the cyber space should definitely be avoided.
You can find many blind-date shows on many channels on weekend evenings these days. People not only watch such program but also discuss the beautiful girls, handsome men and the activities in the shows.
Several reasons result in the popularity of these shows. First of all, love is no longer extremely private and people, especially young people, are not as shy as their parents when it comes to love. Many prefer showing their love in front of people, even millions of people. Secondly, nowadays working young peoples social network is so narrow that they have to extend their targets on these shows. Not only do they have more choices on the show, but also they advertise themselves to the audience.
In my opinion, we can only treat such programs as mere amusement because I do not quite believe that true love can be created through such as short time. This show may be a place where people get to know each other and listen to advice from guests and hosts, but it is never where two people truly become lovers at the end of the show.
The Impact of the Cellphone on Interpersonal Communication
The picture depicts a couple dating in the park. While the man just focuses on his cellphones, and doesn’t pay any attention to his partner or the nature beauty in the park. This picture reflects a common phenomenon in today’s society: people spend too much time with their cellphones and communicate less and less with the people around them.
Nowadays, the smart-cellphones become more and more important in our daily life. They have made our life more convenient. We are timely aware of the most latest news around or faraway from us.
However, everything has two sides. Except for all the advantages, the smart-cellphones also have brought some problems. First, when you’re focus on the cellphone, you may ignore the beautiful scene around you. What’s worse, you are just absorbed in your own small world, rather than share your happiness and sorrows with the family. You hardly talk with your family and the ones around you. You become indifferent to them.
All in all, let’s put down the cellphones and spend more time communicating with our family and friends face to face directly.
Generally the tendencies of three countries keep up though there are some differences among them. The Japanese old people aged 65 and over account for 5% in 1940 which is the lowest proportion in three countries. The situation will remain till about 2030. After that its proportion has a suddenly rise and exceed the other countries’ proportion. Till 2040, it will reach it peak of 27%.
The USA old people’s proportion is a little more than the Sweden’s. However this trend was reversed in 1999. After this year, the proportion of Sweden has a sharp rise till 2015 while the USA ‘s proportion remain a steady at the same time.
In summary, before 2000 the proportions of aged people of three countries were remained under 15%. But after 2030, these proportions will exceed 20%.
With the rapid development of the society, more and more people begin to realize the importance of innovation. Such as, a lot of new things appear in our daily life.
There are many reasons for the importance of innovation. Firstly, for a person, if he has the spirit of innovation, he can be not satisfied with his current situation, and keep going until he succeeds. Secondly, for a team, creation can increase its efficiency. Thirdly, this kind of spirit can help the society develop faster and faster, so that there are more and more new things which can enrich our daily life.
Thus, it is very important for us to encourage innovation. On the one hand, we students should learn to be innovative in our daily life. On the other hand, governments could set some laws and regulations to encourage innovation. Only in this way can we have a better life.
In recent years, Sinology, the study of Chinese traditional culture, literature, history, society etc, has become increasingly popular For instance, it is reported that many primary and secondary schools have set up courses of sinology, in which students are taught classical works by Chinese ancient educators and philosophers, like Confucius- Another good illustration is in the program CCTV Lecture Room famous scholars, e.g, Yu Dan, give lectures on Chinese ancient philosophies and literatures.
Sinology becomes prevalent due to the fact that it is of vital significance for both the individuals and the society. For one thing, Sinology is the essence of Chinese civilization with more than 5,000 years. Thus, for individuals, they can enlarge their scope of knowledge, enrich their experience and adapt themselves to the complicated society. For another, it is acknowledged that the rehabilitation of Sinology can contribute to the establishment of a harmonious society.
In my opinion, all Chinese people should inherit the merits of Sinology. To do so, we can read books by ourselves or to attend lectures on this issue. Besides, we have the gation to popularize introducing it to the world By doing so, we can not only inherit it but also make it glorious and prosperous.
As most people spend a major part of their adult life at work, job satisfaction is an important element of inpidual wellbeing. What factors contribute to job satisfaction? How realistic is the expectation of job satisfaction for all workers?
Nowadays many adults have full-time jobs and the proportion of their lives spent doing such jobs is very high. So feelings about one’s job must reflect how an inpidual feels about his or her life as a whole, and because of this, job satisfaction is indeed very important for the well-being of that person.
Employees get job satisfaction in a number of ways. Firstly, a person needs to feel that they are doing valued and valuable work, so positive feedback from superiors is very important in this respect. A sense of fulfillment is also encouraged if a worker feels the job is worth doing because it contributes to the society or the economy as a whole. Secondly, when someone feels they are improving or developing their skills through training opportunities, for example, then there is a sense of progression and purpose that rewards a worker. The sense of belonging to a team or a working community also contributes to job satisfaction because colleagues help each other to enjoy their working lives. Satisfaction is also increased by a sense of responsibility for and loyalty to a team.
Of course not everyone enjoys their work. Hard economic realities mean that many people have little choice in the kind of job they can get. In some cases an employee is working in a job that suits neither their skills nor their personality. Some jobs are repetitive and boring, and labour relations may be poor and lead to resentment and insecurity rather than to job satisfaction.
However, even though it is unlikely that all workers do feel happy in their work, I think it is not unrealistic to promote more job satisfaction in any job. If the factors identified above are implemented, then any job can be improved and more workers can feel greater degrees of job satisfaction.
A smile is the shortest distance between two people
Mark Twain once said, The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.A smile will unconsciously pull short distance between hearts, which is the charm of a smile. So never stop smiling, even when you are sad, for someone might fall in love with your smile.
Undoubtedly, it is smile that keeps us continually shortening the distance among people. When you fall down, a smile from others will bring you the power to stand up. Besides, smile is a name card which will make the people around you feel comfortable and pave the way for you to make good friends. When you feel disappointed with the life and get heartbroken with the love, just smile, its a good medicine for your hurt soul. Were there no smile, never would we taste a happy and healthy life.
Consequently, from what has been discussed above, it can be safely concluded that a smile is beneficial for us bridge gaps of social interaction and sweep disorders of human communication.

Along with the improvement of living standards, people are no longer content with being fed and clothed adequately. They are more concerned about how to enhance their sense of happiness.
To a large extent, happiness depends on individuals’ understanding about it. For some people, happiness relies on material basis, without which they can’t live comfortably and decently. For others, they believe that happiness has nothing to do with money. Thus to enhance happiness is not equal to improving one’s material living standards. Instead, people are supposed to confront their life with right attitude, to be active and grateful in order to have a happy life.
For my part, money does buy happiness, but only up to the point where it enables one to live comfortably. To boost one’s happiness not only needs the material but also the spiritual enrichment. It encompasses living a meaningful life, utilizing your gifts and your time, living with reflection and objective.
Not all the decisions made quickly are wrong
From my perspective, the rush decision may be wrong if it was made when we were in great anger or when wer were tempted by something. However, some decisions can be made instantly. We make decisions every day, and not every decision is so important that it needs our careful thought. For example, many white-collar workers go out to have lunch every weekday. Obviously, that simple decision does not need ten minutes to consider gains and losses. In some situations, there is not so much time for us to think twice, because the chance may be lost in any minute when we hesitate. For example, someone fells into the river and is drowning. In this case, most people will try to rescue the drowning one without delay. Another case is that sometimes we need to make quick decisions to grasp opportunities. As can be seen, the decisions that people make quickly are not always wrong, especially when we should follow our instinct in certain situations, such as emergencies and once in a lifetime chances.
Recently a blind date including 20 young men and women has been held by an organization. Some people see it as a good way to meet different people while others argue that its not possible to find ones partner between two people who have not previously met. As far as Im concerned, blind dating is worth trying and you can find your true love there!
First of all, nowadays many young people are always busying with their work; therefore they have little spare time to meet with their future partner, leading to more and more leftover women and men. According to a study, a happy life includes work and family balance, which means a harmonious family including the couple may contribute to a comparably happy life.
Whats more, during a blind date, usually the basic information is given to both parts; therefore its more reliable to know a persons family background, his or her job, religion etc. As is known to all, a couple should have the same belief in value, wealth, thus preventing many potential conflicts.
Last but not least, through blind dates, one can meet people with different personalities, thus having a clearer idea about which kind of person is suitable for being a lifelong mate. And blind dates are also great chances to make friends in the same age group.
To sum up, blind dating can be a good way to find ones future husband or wife. Its feasible and reliable. Hope that everyone can find true love in blind dates!
In recent years, it is very popular to rank majors. Major ranking lists based on a variety of criteria can be found on some educational websites or newspapers. These lists have great influence on students and many of them have come to rely on these lists to make their major-choice decisions.
To this phenomenon, people’s opinions vary from each other. Some think that the results of the ranking are helpful for high school students to choose a major field of study, e.g., some lists tell people what majors will lead to decent jobs after graduation. Some people, however, believe that many lists are actually useless. Rankings are only about numbers and they do not tell you anything about the distinct nature of the major. Besides, some majors may be listed as hot majors when students enter colleges, but will be unpopular when they graduate.
As far as I’m concerned, we should not over-stress major ranking. It should be remembered that rankings can play a big role in the selection of a major but it should not be the only criterion. Many factors including your own perception of the major should matter in your final choice.
Addiction to Smartphones
Do you check your smartphone frequently? Do you feel distracted if your smartphone is not with you? When there’s no wifi or signal for your smartphone, will you get irritated? If you say yes, then you’ve got addiction to smartphones. Smartphone addiction is a phenomenon that causes a lot of troubles to people.
In the first place, it may cause some problems to your health, such as visual fatigue, cervical spondylosis, and even neurasthenia. A friend of mine suffers from a serious spine collapse due to her addiction to smartphones during pregnancy.
Secondly, if you keep playing with your phone when you are with your friends or family, you will spend less time talking to them. In fact, it is they who need and deserve to be cared for.
Lastly, an excessive reliance on smartphones may weaken your interpersonal skills. When you cannot find a place, you consult your GPS instead of consulting local people. You spare more time playing mobile games than playing real games with real people. As time passes, it’s possible that you may have difficulty in communicating with people.
Therefore, isn’t it better to get rid of smartphone addiction?
Creating a Green Campus
Recently, with the idea of making and maintaining "a green earth" being the focus of the society, "green campus" has become a more and more popular concept in universities or colleges, which, undoubtedly, will bring us an ever-lasting benefit to both our campus and our society.
The concept of " green campus" does not only mean a green environment but also refers to an environmental sense in peoples mind. Campus plays a crucial role in educating the young generation and the consciousness of " green campus" will definitely produce a profound effect on students various environmental protection activities after their graduation. Whats more, the young generation is under the burden of severe environmental pollution and there are many problems waiting for them to solve.
To make "green campus" come true, firstly, it is necessary to work out effective principles for the development of sustainable and recyclable campus. Secondly, it calls for peoples awareness of the serious pollution around us and actual action to reduce the waste. Last but not least, it is necessary to strengthen the ties between campus and society, so as to ensure that "green campus" can work smoothly with the co-effort of the whole society.
