白头吟

皑如山上雪,皎若云间月。
闻君有两意,故来相决绝。
今日斗酒会,明旦沟水头。
躞蹀御沟上,沟水东西流。
凄凄复凄凄,嫁娶不须啼。
愿得一心人,白头不相离。
竹竿何袅袅,鱼尾何簁簁!
男儿重意气,何用钱刀为!

Translation: Like the snow on the mountain, if the clouds are between the moon. Wen Jun has two meanings, so he will come to a close. Today’s bucket party, Ming Dangou water head. On the gully, the ditch water flows. If you want to marry, you don’t have to worry about it. Would like to have as one people, old age is not way off. What is the bamboo raft? The man is heavy, how to use the money knife!

Translation:

To a Faithless Husband

Plain as snow on the hill,

Clear as moon among the clouds.

Is your change of heart, they tell me;

And so I’ve come to bid you good-bye.

Today we’ve drunk a measure of wine,

Tomorrow we must part by the canal.

I shall walk beside the royal canal,

Whose waters flow east and are gone,

And wonder if my grief will ever end.

No girl need cry when she’s married.

If her husband is a single-hearted man

Who will not leave her till her hair is white.

Pliant the bamboo fishing rod,

Wet, wet, the tail of the fish.

A man who valued constancy

Would set no store by money!

I think in this picture, there are pretty much showing ethos, after seeing such huge renewable energy sector. And we could not even see where is the end. This picture gives such reliable evidence. We have advanced technologies. And it is not only saved environment, but also, it gives many job opportunities. The new energy sector could help us better live. . As everyone knows, Chinese have the worst air quality in the world. This picture give me a hope that in one day, China could have clean air.

In this pictures, mom is pushes her son in the hallway in order to let her son forget the dreaded of extortion. Her son looks very happy with two arms open. The author wants to shows that people should care about those children who are facing the cancer. However, Cyndie’s face looks not that relax. She knows that her son is facing a big challenge. I even could imaging that after her son go to the operating room, she is crying so hard, and full face of worry. I think this is the point of power of the author wants to show. The contraction of showing the face between mom and son is so powerful with black and white filter. In my opinion, black and white filter is always sad. The propose of this pictures might wants shows how great of mom’ love is. Even though mother is very worried about him, she still use pushers way to let her son forget the scariness.

I could not put my essay in the video yet, but I wrote my essay here. I will work on it later.

 

 

Before I am telling my story, I want tell you something about my parents. Same as many Chinese parents, parents gave me a really high expectation for my future. They want me to study in a high-ranking college and get a good job in my late year. They wish me always follows what they give me and listen to them. I am just a child in their eyes. I don’t have any own opinions and thoughts. I am just a doll and doing things what they want me to do. Here is my story.

 

On my last year of high school, all the things are pretty done beside decide which college I am going to. During that time, I was really frusted. It was really a tough half year for me. I almost finished my high school years, and a big transition in front of me is picking college. I apllied 10 universities and got 7 offers to choose. Before, I choose this school, there is a better choice that my parents think it is suit for me. That school is higher ranking, and good place for study which is located in a small town. My mom even force me to go to that college but the university is not what I want. I more like san Francisco and the weather here. however, this school is not what my parents expect with high-ranking plus all my friends are got pretty good offers.

Literature narrative is basically telling a story about yourself by using narrative way. In this video, it is talking about does the minority influence cultural identity. And how doest it influenced. People’s background will also influenced how they see this world, and how they solve problems. The video shows style is by asking questions and a student answering them to show how it is influenced it. In my opinion, only one person could not represent as a whole. I won’t take the form like him by asking question and answering. When people are watching it, it is pretty boring, and I do not have desire to continue watch it.  The good part is questions are covered  comprehensibly. It is lead us to a clearly thinking.

When I was young, I am really afraid to sleep alone at night. So, I always sleep with my older sister. Once we argued during the day, and she said to me, you cannot sleep with me tonight. At the arguing time, I just forget the fear of sleeping alone and said to her, fine, I can sleep alone. I don’t need you anymore. It was a really naïve of thinking at that time because I think she will forget what I said. However, the fact is when it is time to go sleep, my sister really did not sleep with me. She went to another room. Then, I felt OMG. What have I done?? I could not sleep alone. So I went to my sister room cried so hard to beg her forgiveness. I remember I cried almost three hours to let her sleep with me. After that time, I never made my sister angry because I am afraid.
