Environment & Our life

When talking about Global Warming, the first thing came into my mind is the movie- The Day After Tomorrow. It is a sad story that global warming made the weather condition a super severe change from normal to super cold. Because of the higher temperature, the ice mount of the polar area soon melt away. Lots of ice turned into water in a very short time. Then the salt-water ratio of the oceans suddenly got a big difference. This fact switched the ocean’s flowing route so that an enormous amount of heat could not spread well as usual. Finally the hot areas became hotter, the cold lands colder. Then there came a super freezing storm to the U.S. many people were killed by the cold weather. Thank God the storm did not last very long; otherwise the mankind must be extinguished.
After watching the movie, I thought it could be not only a film but also a mirror that reflected mankind’s behavior to the environment. We know that there’s only an earth but we still damage it every single day by a various kinds of pollution. The earth is not a strong and young planet anymore, if we do not take care of it as soon as possible, it would die. Saving our environment needs everyone’s effort. Let’s do it!

Gloomy Sunday~ a song from hell

It is autumn and the leaves are falling.
All love has died on earth.
The wind is weeping with sorrowful tears.
My heart will never hope for a new spring again.
My tears and my sorrows are all in vain.
People are heartless, greedy and wicked...
Love has died!
The world has come to its end, hope has ceased to have a meaning.
Cities are being wiped outMeadows are coloured red with human blood.
There are dead people on the streets everywhere.
I will say another quiet prayer:
People are sinners, Lord, they make mistakes...
The world has ended!

Big Fish

Big Fish by 以中
Edward Bloom has always been a teller of tall tales. The story follows him from a young man when he traveled from a small town in Alabama, around the world, and back again. He has a knack for telling stories ranging from giants to witches to blizzards.
These larger-than-life stories enchant just about everyone, except his estranged son Will. As a result, Will's mother tries to reunite son and father in this heartwarming tale of a son coming to terms with his father's great feats and great failures.
Life is just like a film. Everybody has his own story. When you want to be happy and successful, be in the present. When you want to make the present better than the past, learn from the past. When you want to make the future better than the present, plan for the future. Always remember that life is too short to be little. We ought to spend our life on beautiful things.

yichung's self-introduction

My name is yichung. I was born in a middle class family in Taipei, Taiwan. My mother used to be an English teacher with a bachelor degree of art, and now runs a small business. She always plays a pivotal role in guiding and encouraging me to approach a broader field of my study. She always tries to satisfy my curiosity of life and to teach me the important morals of our society. My father is my role model. He is my hero. I especially liked his commanding baritone voice when he told me about his life in the Air Force. He explained to me how important an air force officer is to the isolated small country. He retired as a lieutenant colonel from the air force with honor about 5 years ago. He inspires me to be an air force officer. My younger brother was born with autism. He cannot live a normal life. It makes me appreciate my life more and always help those people with disadvantage whenever and wherever I can.
With the encouragement from my parents and the strong desire to be an air force officer, I made one of the most important decisions in my life to attend the famous Chiang Kai-shek Military Prep School for juniors. I had a very strong desire to be a good soldier from my childhood dream. During my 6 years in the Prep school, I always worked hard and persevered from all kinds of mental and physical training. I am a very good team player, and I am very popular among my classmates.
I enjoy all kinds of activities, but most of all, I like movies and jogging. Movies let me experience other people’s ups and downs. They enrich my imagination. Jogging makes me feel better about myself and be more confident through all the miles I conquered.
My ambition is to be a successful air force officer. I have been working hard to achieve this goal. I am a junior of the Air Force Academy which created a lot of real war heroes in my country. I know a lot of successful stories of my alumni. They inspire me just as my father inspired me when I was a little kid. I am sure I can be a very good air force officer through my hard work at the academic level in CAFA.
