Speaking

I didn’t relax on CNY days for three or four years. It sounds like a holiday but I have lots of work, homework to do so I haven’t relaxed inside. I didn’t go out to relax because I have to work at home. This year, I will spend time with my parents. I think is about my specific, I studied in Beijing for 2 years and in those 2 years, I study and worked hard. Then, I came to Shanghai for work so I have lots of work to do every day. I felt tired especially last year. But, this year I think it would be better. I need a new beginning.

From February to May I need to do some work at the university meanwhile prepare different examinations. Before these two years, I was excited. I want to take that PhD. Recently, I feel my feelings changed because of the professor. My professors are women. When I was young, I choose to have a female professor. Lots of male professors have something wrong with their female students. But, for PhD, this professor just want to work. She doesn’t want me to have my personal life. So I feel this is my worry. But, I have to have the PhD.

Five years ago there was one professor. He allowed me to be his student for PhD. But, he is a strange man so I refused.
