Is there any other reason to live to change the world?
It all happened on Ma’s birthday. The morning had been off to a nice start, a special morning. She’d never seen the house abuzz like this. They were going all out for Ma tonight. Birthdays didn’t happen every day, and Ma’s husband had just been paid his leaving wages. Tomorrow he’d have to scrounge around for new work, but today they’d live like kings. Auguste, Pauro, and even Rosa had scrubbed the place clean, set up chairs for them to get some sun, and Ma was just taking in the sight of her family, not thinking for once about her fingers swelling up or her belly sticking out. The tiny radio was spitting out songs that any other time Ma couldn’t have stood one bit. The Bee Gees were carrying on about fever, and the disco rhythm had Ma tapping her toes, rocking her body back and forth.
If we do not succeed in life
There is a novel "asking for it", in which the main character Walter, from a young age, forever playing that curled up and rolled down the hill loser, he seems to have a bone in his body like to win a simple and easy failure. Then, in the future, after he was fired by his boss, and not too sad, he began to treat himself with a spirit of enjoying failure - while wandering the streets, desperately looking for work, lying to the family, and accidentally revealing. Many people in the review of the character of Walter, "delusional enjoyment of failure" to attach the man, but, at the moment of reading, I only felt a kind of desolation - a kind of ordinary people after the failure of desolation and the greatest compromise on life.
Has your level of effort reached the point of fighting talent
In college, based on our majors, camera shooting was a mandatory course for us. I had a male classmate who had reached a point where he was obsessed with the camera. He said, "In my opinion, there is nothing happier than going to shoot dewdrops in the middle of the night. The moment you see the dewdrops come out, your joyful mood can nourish you for days."
Other people's attitudes towards you are what you allow
1. Saw a post. A parent asked a question on the forum, the general situation is. My son is in 5th grade and there is a boy in his class who doesn't bully anyone, but always bullies his son. Every day when he came home from school, his son's clothes were covered with various pen drawings, and it was very difficult to clean them. When he talked to the teacher, the teacher just criticized him. For many teachers, there is no direct threat to student safety is not a big deal. As a mother, I felt that it was already the last year of elementary school, and in a sense, changing schools wasn't something that had to be done. But every time I saw my son's depressed expression, I was sad and didn't know how to enlighten him.
To change your life, learn to please yourself first!
01 When I was young, I felt that I was not pretty enough, and I did not like people. To avoid being disliked, I never take the initiative to make friends with people, even existing friends, but also easily dare not say a word, for fear of accidentally saying the wrong thing, people will think: this person is ugly and stupid, why not hide away a little?
Thoroughly modern mullets: Style's unlikeliest comeback
Style can be – among other things – a way for individuals to express the influence of the external world. It makes perfect sense, then, that the definitive beauty trend of the previous year – one of the most chaotic and traumatic years in global memory – is the resurgence of one of the most reviled and lampooned haircuts in modern history: the mullet. The long in the back, short on the top-and-sides look has made a powerful and poetic comeback during the coronavirus pandemic, that (like the virus itself) shows no signs of leaving us soon.
The worst fashion disasters in fiction
Parties are often ripe territory for failure. Amid the dancing and the talking and the new encounters, there can lie within you a great, dark pool of apprehension about all the possible ways in which the evening could go wrong. You could arrive at an incorrect time and not know what to say or where to place yourself. You could drink too much. You could say too little. Perhaps you are the kind of person who falls silent and retreats inwards at such events, watching everyone else laugh and glide around with an ease you desperately envy. You may realise at some point, or try not to realise, that you are at the bottom of the social pecking order, your presence yielding more pity than pleasure. You might even have made everything worse by turning up wearing the wrong kind of dress, all hope for a night of fairytale glamour dashed the minute you entered the room and noted the dissonance between your outfit and everyone else's.
Gen X, Gen Z, Millennials: Which has the best style?
Online, Generation Z (ages 9-24) has been criticising numerous aspects of mainstream Millennial (ages 25-40) style, namely their affections for side-parted hair and skinny jeans. In the process they have unleashed a tidal wave of sassy, self-conscious and downright spiteful reactions from Millennials. The trending dispute is so impassioned, not due to a lifelong allegiance to the particular jeans or hairstyle in question, but because the accusation of being outdated has forced Millennials to face an uncomfortable truth: there's been a transfer of generational power.
