I was told that if you don't stand up for yourself, you will be taken advantage of. It is sad, but it is the truth. If you want to wait for a saint to save you, then you are doing nothing but wasting your time. The reality is cruel, and the sooner you realize it, the better it is for you.
My mom called this morning, and I couldn't help but think that it is true that only family on the earth will never do harm to you. It's lucky to have a family and you should cherish it with every ounce of your soul. After last week's busy work in the lab, I kind of feel that working there is not really what I want for my future, and I thought a lot about what I should do in less than one year. Will I still be here in Shanghai? What will I do after graduation? Once again, I am on the crossroad, and time is crucial.
I have the examples to follow, and all I need is the determination and perseverence which can make me hold on in the end.
