  • Topic of this Week: "Are you a competitive person? (October 13, 2019)"

    High school is a memorable time in a student’s life. High school was supposed to be the time for me to create beautiful memories with all my friends and my other half. But I didn’t have it. I boosted myself to study day and day just because I wanted to beat a girl who was regarded by my mother as “con nha nguoi ta”, which means “very excellent “. Even though she was my classmate and she lived in the vicinity of my house, I didn’t want to talk with her.
    After leaving the high school and being in Hanoi, I was in a very competitive environment and I also became more competitive (Aggressive). I was afraid of being left behind by my peers in my freshman year firstly, however, I really wanted to defeat the others. I compared myself with all of the best students in every aspects such as: scores, English, or even guiding skills with boys.
    This character is still in me until now. It gives me a great deal of motivation to do my work with the best I can because I always keep in my mind that “If others can do it, I also can do it and even do it better”. But from time to time, it makes me so exhausted that I just want to come back to Nam Dinh, my countryside.
