Happy everyday!

There are so many pressure and troubles in life,it seems so difficult to find happiness.
In different period in life,you’ll have different pressure. Everyday you’re surrounded by these stress and pressure.It make you can’t breathe.Where’s happiness?
In my experience,when you’re depressed to heavens, you’ll summon up.You’ll find these unpahappiness is so tiny so ridiculous. How late it is to happy after wasting much time in unhappiness! How ephemeral our life is! Happy everyday no matter what happen.Devote all your mind to the current second,reach your current target,keep you healthy,dig your happiness in your heart,everything will come true!That is,leave aside pressure.

sunny2005liu, You must be proud of yourself, owning a home, having a challenging high-paid job, etc. Your hard work has paid off and you fully deserved it. Yeah, your joy will be more intense as you is sharing it with your family and your friends.

Regarding how to keep the balance between life (in general) and career, no doubt, that is a tough task, especially for a career woman. I am not sure if I am at a proper position to give any advice, although quite a few my female teammates and my female friends are from the best universities, who are intelligent, sharp, warm, witty, etc. general speaking, they are more satisfied and happier than others. I can not find any reason you are not able to cope with that.

Thank you for expressing your thoughts and sharing them with us. You are on the right track to improve your English and other things. One thing I would like to humbly suggest is that when it comes to put your thoughts and impressions (or look and feel) into words, just like an artist painting a colorful sunset, sketching a portrait of an old man with a whether-battered face, I mean, it will be interesting to capture a scene or two in your dairy, and trying to describe them in detail (more or less, which is up to you), for example, a scene of a rush hour, or traders or brokers yelling at each others, and followed by a conclusion and a question that make your readers think. You may read holly's diary as an example.

Keep up your good work! :)

Autumn is just on the corner!

After it enter into September,after several rain days,everything changs little by little before you feel,I like autumn season,especial the Autumn of my hometown in North of China.
There are so much difference between the South and the North during the Autumn season.These days,I always think of the essay “The Autumn in Onetime Capital by Dafu Yu,which really describe the Autumn of North into your heart,as well as the sad for the country.
If you like it,I enclose the essay as follows.
秋天,无论在什么地方的秋天,总是好的;可是啊,北国的秋,却特
别地来得清,来得静,来得悲凉。我的不远千里,要从杭州赶上青岛,更
要从青岛赶上北平来的理由,也不过想饱尝一尝这“秋”,这故都的秋味。

  江南,秋当然也是有的;但草木雕得慢,空气来得润,天的颜色显得
淡,并且又时常多雨而少风;一个人夹在苏州上海杭州,或厦门香港广州
的市民中间,浑浑沌沌地过去,只能感到一点点清凉,秋的味,秋的色,
秋的意境与姿态,总看不饱,尝不透,赏玩不到十足。秋并不是名花,也
并不是美酒,那一种半开,半醉的状态,在领略秋的过程上,是不合适的。

  不逢北国之秋,已将近十余年了。在南方每年到了秋天,总要想起陶
然亭的芦花,钓鱼台的柳影,西山的虫唱,玉泉的夜月,潭柘寺的钟声。
在北平即使不出门去罢,就是在皇城人海之中,租人家一椽破屋来住着,
早晨起来,泡一碗浓茶、向院子一坐,你也能看得到很高很高的碧绿的天
色,听得到青天下驯鸽的飞声。从槐树叶底,朝东细数着一丝一丝漏下来
的日光,或在破壁腰中,静对着象喇叭似的牵牛花(朝荣)的蓝朵,自然
而然地也能够感觉到十分的秋意。说到了牵牛花,我以为以蓝色或白色者
为佳,紫黑色次之,淡红色最下。最好,还要在牵牛花底,教长着几根疏
疏落落的尖细且长的秋草,使作陪衬。

  北国的槐树,也是一种能使人联想起秋来的点缀。象花而又不是花的
那一种落蕊,早晨起来,会铺得满地。脚踏上去,声音也没有,气味也没
有,只能感出一点点极微细极柔软的触觉。扫街的在树影下一阵扫后,灰
土上留下来的一条条扫帚的丝纹,看起来既觉得细腻,又觉得清闲,潜意
识下并且还觉得有点儿落寞,古人所说的梧桐一叶而天下知秋的遥想,大
约也就在这些深沈的地方。

  秋蝉的衰弱的残声,更是北国的特产;因为北平处处全长着树,屋子
又低,所以无论在什么地方,都听得见它们的啼唱。在南方是非要上郊外
或山上去才听得到的。这秋蝉的嘶叫,在北平可和蟋蟀耗子一样,简直象
是家家户户都养在家里的家虫。

  还有秋雨哩,北方的秋雨,也似乎比南方的下得奇,下得有味,下得
更象样。

  在灰沈沈的天底下,忽而来一阵凉风,便息列索落地下起雨来了。一
层雨过,云渐渐地卷向了西去,天又青了,太阳又露出脸来了;著着很厚
的青布单衣或夹袄曲都市闲人,咬着烟管,在雨后的斜桥影里,上桥头树
底下去一立,遇见熟人,便会用了缓慢悠闲的声调,微叹着互答着的说:

  “唉,天可真凉了─—”(这了字念得很高,拖得很长。)

  “可不是么?一层秋雨一层凉了!”

  北方人念阵字,总老象是层字,平平仄仄起来,这念错的歧韵,倒来
得正好。

  北方的果树,到秋来,也是一种奇景。第一是枣子树;屋角,墙头,
茅房边上,灶房门口,它都会一株株地长大起来。象橄榄又象鸽蛋似的这
枣子颗儿,在小椭圆形的细叶中间,显出淡绿微黄的颜色的时候,正是秋
的全盛时期;等枣树叶落,枣子红完,西北风就要起来了,北方便是尘沙
灰土的世界,只有这枣子、柿子、葡萄,成熟到八九分的七八月之交,是
北国的清秋的佳日,是一年之中最好也没有的GoldenDays。

  有些批评家说,中国的文人学士,尤其是诗人,都带着很浓厚的颓废
色彩,所以中国的诗文里,颂赞秋的文字特别的多。但外国的诗人,又何
尝不然?我虽则外国诗文念得不多,也不想开出账来,做一篇秋的诗歌散
文钞,但你若去一翻英德法意等诗人的集子,或各国的诗文的An-thology
来,总能够看到许多关于秋的歌颂与悲啼。各著名的大诗人的长篇田园诗
或四季诗里,也总以关于秋的部分。写得最出色而最有味。足见有感觉的
动物,有情趣的人类,对于秋,总是一样的能特别引起深沈,幽远,严厉,
萧索的感触来的。不单是诗人,就是被关闭在牢狱里的囚犯,到了秋天,
我想也一定会感到一种不能自己的深情;秋之于人,何尝有国别,更何
尝有人种阶级的区别呢?不过在中国,文字里有一个“秋士”的成语,读
本里又有着很普遍的欧阳子的《秋声》与苏东坡的《赤壁赋》等,就觉得
中国的文人,与秋的关系特别深了。可是这秋的深味,尤其是中国的秋的
深味,非要在北方,才感受得到底。

  南国之秋,当然是也有它的特异的地方的,比如廿四桥的明月,钱塘
江的秋潮,普陀山的凉雾,荔枝湾的残荷等等,可是色彩不浓,回味不永。
比起北国的秋来,正象是黄酒之与白干,稀饭之与馍馍,鲈鱼之与大蟹,
黄犬之与骆驼。

  秋天,这北国的秋天,若留得住的话,我愿把寿命的三分之二折去,
换得一个三分之一的零头。

Grapery in my dream

Aside our domitry building in our factory,there is a grapery,maybe it’s too small to call it grapery,but it really brings joy to every person passing.During the summer,it shields fromthe glaring sunshine,gives valuable cool.When it mature,so many grapes hanging from flourished branches and leaves,it’s so alluring.Many workers pick grapes to eat during their off hours.The grapery realize its living significance just like a person.
It make me bethink the grapery in our yard and sweet and happy childhood.
I lived in countryside in North of China before I went to university,we had a big yard,in which we planted many kinds of flowers and vegetable,just like a garden.My sisters loved  flowers,so we collected all kinds of flower seeds for our garden,such as rose,China rose, canna,mum,morning glory,and many other flowers I could’t name.It’s really happy things for little girls to look after flowers.My mother also planted some vegetables,such as eggplant,cuke,tomato and so on.
My father bought some Qufeng(巨峰)grape trees to plant in yard,when they grew up,the whole yard was covered in shades.In summer vocation,we made vocation assignment in grapery,big purple grapes looked so delicious,greedy children couldn’t help to stand on chair to pick grapes. There was also a cement pool for irrigation or even swimming(he he).The garden the grapery supplied us so colorful so sweet childhood.
After father left us,our mainstay fell down, sisters lefe home,father's grapery declined because nobody took care of them,just like my once happy family.
Grapery stands for my happy childhood,is my complex deep in heart.I once seeked many houses on top floor,I dream to have a air grapery also,then my drooly child also can look up the grapes.But it just a dream,for many reasons,I give up the top floor.
Maybe it’s impossible for me to own a grapery in city.
