Dear Daughter:

亲爱的女儿:

As we drove off from Columbia, I wanted to write a letter to you to tell you all that is on my mind.

当我们开车驶出哥伦比亚大学的时候,我想写一封信给你,告诉你盘旋在我脑中的想法。

First, I want to tell you how proud we are. Getting into Columbia is a real testament of what a great well-rounded student you are. Your academic, artistic, and social skills have truly blossomed in the last few years. Whether it is getting the highest grade in Calculus, completing your elegant fashion design, successfully selling your painted running shoes, or becoming one of the top orators in Model United Nations, you have become a talented and accomplished young woman. You should be as proud of yourself as we are.

The letter to father
Dear Dad,

Today I was at the shopping mall and I spent a lot of time reading the Father’s Day cards. They all had a special message that in some way or another reflected how I feel about you. Yet as I selected and read, and selected and read again, it occurred to me that not a single card said what I really want to say to you.

You’ll soon be 84 years old, Dad, and you and I will have had 55 Father’s Days together. I haven’t always been with you on Father’s Day nor have I been with you for all of your birthdays. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to be with you. I’ve always been with you in my heart but sometimes life gets in the way.

又是一年高考时...

俱往矣,峥嵘岁月稠。

6月7日,又是一年高考时。
不知道这是我高考后第几次写关于高考的文章了,但是我知道这绝非第2次。而今天,则更为值得,因为我今天亦和千万名考试一起参考试:人家进行的是高考,我进行的是新东方英语版的结业考。
也许是好久没有这么紧张过了,尽管昨晚很早就休息了,闹铃定的也早于从前,但早上还是搞的我慌慌张张的,原因是我习惯了工作日的那种紧张,还不熟悉周末的生活-闹铃虽然设定了,但是设定的是工作日,今天是周末,固然没响。当我7:45睁开眼的时候,已经发现离规定的8:30已经为时不远了。再然后就是慌张的起床、洗漱、赶车等等等等。
再然后就是考试,一轮听力、比试、翻译、写作、口语下来之后,为时半年多的新东方英语培训算是画上了一个不为圆满的记号。
想起自己的高考,至今已经整整七年,前天看到一位同事在帮今年高考的妹妹找寻报考学校,然后几个人就开始讨论起了那难忘的当年,什么英语呀,数学呀,报考呀,大学呀,等等,一幕幕的又过了一遍…
而如果自己已成为工作3年整的老鸟,真是忘事如风呀,都成为过眼烟云了。
只是为去年毕业还没有找到工作的哪些孩子们感到叹惜,在如今经济危机、知识爆炸的年代,唯有在校时好好读书,方可在毕业时找到一份工作而取得自保,除此,别无他法。也希望他们都可以意识到这点。
从北京回来之后,就一直觉得累,每天都昏昏沉沉的,尤其是过去的一周刚开始的那两天,下午那段时光最难熬,出奇的困,没有精神。
幸好一日两次的例行体温检查可以排除我并非中了“猪流感”的毒,要不,我非被隔离起来。无奈的是,福建的HINI的病例的数目于日剧增,我的周围也被“猪流感”所包围。
本来说从北京回来后会上载在北京的照片,但是因为种种原因没有实现,也只好陆续的曝光了,这篇博文的照片即是我在北京大学拍摄到的。为排到这张照片,我可是等了很久,今天先拿来用了,至于北京行的其他照片,定会择日分批上传。

窗子已经打开,未来总是美好。祝每一位考生的未来,绚烂如花。
