  • Jan 28 2013: My major, starting from this March, is Chinese.
    I don't necessarily think it's "for" me.
    I just want to learn it. I want a valuable experience.

    I'm not going to let any of my degrees to define who I am or what I am capable of.

    I'm just so eager to learn something meaningful or useful or fascinating and put it into practice so that I would be able to get a chance to broaden my way.

    Completing my degree is a part of the things in my list.
    Even if it doesn't seem like “it's for me”, I shan't blame myself or anyone.

    God, the truth is, I don't know anything about myself and my future.
    Who knows? Whether you realize or not, it might help you deal with some of your difficult problems in the near future.
    It might give you an opportunity to take an important job.

    It might enable you to make new good friends in different fields.

    I'm sure there'd be no regrets of completing my degree unless I've been forced to complete it against my will.
