stay hungry, stay foolish.
How to spend the poor and confused years of your twenties?
1 I saw this question on a chat app and after thinking about it, I think I'm still qualified to answer it. I just graduated five months ago and have experienced the panic of being overwhelmed and the confusion of not seeing hope. As a newcomer to the workplace, I have not yet developed the skills to be on my own at work, and although I am constantly learning to improve, I am more confused than adaptable.
You could have, but didn't
Why do people have to work hard? Anyway, you can't die of hunger. Many people have asked me similar questions, and my answers are almost always the same: even if you don't work hard, you can't starve to death in this society, and you can always find a career to support your family; but if you have never worked hard, then at the end of your life, you may find: the most painful thing in life, not failure, but I could have, but I didn't.
Time is precious, forgive me for not being able to waste it with you
Occasionally I would see a student eating alone in the cafeteria. Most of them are holding chopsticks in one hand and a cell phone in the other, desperately pressing and pressing, as if they are really talking to someone very important. At the same time the mouth kept eating very wolfishly, and then left quickly as if the buttocks were on fire, the whole process looks like an anxious monkey.
5 things that make adults feel incomprehensible in a child's world
Since the world of each adult is very different, how much do adults know about the ideas of the world of children? The world in the eyes of a child should appear in many cases that parents can not understand.
Your approval of your child may be another kind of bondage
Children need to know that they don't have to do anything to earn our undivided attention. Children deserve to experience that the very fact that they are here on earth is enough to earn them attention and appreciation.
Children need to be seen, not praised
As parents, we are always pleased with every bit of progress our children make, and we are always ready to praise them. But "praise" is not everything. Sometimes, what your child needs is not the same old, uninspired compliment, but your attention.
The ingenious living bridges of India
When monsoon clouds bring pelting rains to the village of Tyrna, Shailinda Syiemlieh takes the nearest bridge to reach the opposite bank of a gushing stream. The bridge is no ordinary structure made of concrete and metal. Instead, it is composed of a single giant fig tree that sits by the riverbank, and the support that Syiemlieh walks over is a mishmash of aerial roots tightly knotted and woven together. The bridge is not only a part of the landscape, it is helping to support its ecosystem at the same time.
The neglected 'Galapagos of Europe'
It's around 8am and there's a chill in the air as I look out across the foggy horizon of Lake Ohrid, which sits on the border between Albania and North Macedonia. A cluster of small wooden fishing boats, painted in bold primary colours, slowly grow larger as they move towards the shore.
The lost generation of ancient trees
At around 1,100 years old, and almost 11m (36ft) in girth, the Big Belly Oak is the oldest tree in Savernake Forest in south-west England. A tiny sapling at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, Big Belly Oak has lived through the War of the Roses, the Black Death, the English Civil War, the Industrial Revolution and two world wars. Now gnarled and knobbly, Big Belly Oak’s trunk is strapped up with a metal girdle to keep it from falling apart.
The hidden bustling world of hedgerows
Hedgerows are as British as fish and chips. Without these walls of woody plants cross-stitching the countryside into a harmonious quilt of pastures and crop fields, the landscape wouldn't be the same. Over the centuries, numerous hedges were planted to keep in grazing livestock, and some of today's are as historic as many old churches, dating back as far as 800 years. Today, Britain boasts about 700,000 km (435,000 miles) of them, a length that surpasses that of its roads.
