This Monday I got a chance to meet some people from my college. They were coming from shanghai and came to Suffolk to talk about some partnership stuff. I was totally exciting about it. Since I am here I haven’t got a chance to back to my college. We talked about my life here and what’s going on in my college right now. Pretty much about everything and amazed me.
All the conversation we had reminded me my college life. A nerdish girl is me. Everyday my life was from dorm to library or classrooms. I didn’t do anything crazy as the college kids here. When I was in my junior year I visited my friend in Hong Kong. It was the time changed my life. We were high school friends she went to college in Hong Kong. It was a really good college as you know Hong Kong is kind of place combine western and eastern culture together. I was totally touched by the western education system and decided to come to America to start my new life.
Yesterday one of my co workers asked me if I don’t need to earn money for life what would I do. That was a really good question. I said I’ll do some art related work. Like play my violin in a pop band not only classic music. Or do some marketing related job like marketing development. But meanwhile I like my accountant career. Every time I figured there is a mistake in the balance sheet I’ll feel very happy. As you know, before you do anything you really like you might have to do a lot of things you dislike. If I don’t need to earn money for live I would like to work with any political related industry. It just reminded me when I was in middle school or early year high school I thought about to work as a professional politician. Oh my god why I stop thinking it as my career? Why I give up music and art?
My co-worker she also asked other people in my office: what will you do if you don’t need to earn money for live? All the answers were different compare with what they are doing now. They are lawyers, legal assistant, etc etc…but are they really want to be the lawyer? Good question. I start wondering: Can life change people’s mind or long term goal or people himself can change his life?
