This week started off with 18 hours of tests. Chinese student across the country are facing the ‘what did you learn in the past 5 months’ truth test. This is the end term exams. 9 subjects, no escape.
Now you can see how hard did you study and what you improved compared to your last scores and what is your place in the 900 students in your grade. I along with other students take part in this… Now, most of the times I did not know what was going on, but I already understood at least some questions😉. Which I was amazingly happy about. I arrived on a stable 892nd place, which maybe is not the worst, but I am thankful because I can go and improve to be better. My next exam goal, which is in April, is that I want to make it in the best 800 😊👍🏼. Achievable, and SMART goal this is.
But for most of the students, this end term exam, means is that it is time to have Holiday. 假期。3 weeks of pure fun… But because it is China, and they are pushing, most of the students out of this 20 days has 10-12 days of studying and going to extra classes. They are really dedicated. I love it. I just look up to every single one of them. I want to study hard like this, I want what they are building in the next 50 years. I want to be part of their growth!
This is why I grow myself on a daily basis, I want to outwork everyone.
I started another new thing which I have never sone before, and it is video cutting and creating. In time, for Shanghai coming up, we gotta make a ppt or something interesting about our life in Shenzhen. The thing is if we wanted to make this into a ppt we would need about 400 slides to show what is going on and up in our lives.
Instead we created and filmed lots of short, as well as long, videos (about 200-300). Out of that I find the awesome ones, funny ones, interesting ones, and make it into a video with music. I will put the link up to blog for you to watch this project as well!
It is actually not as hard as I thought as it would be. Or maybe I am not yet reached the hard part. Anyway it is awesome to learn this as well. I am get more skilled and skilled in different parts of life. Amazing! 😊
Please teach me some crazy things, if you have any, because I am really open to understand an to know what you good at, and how can we make each other grow.
