Is Becoming Rich the Only Goal of Life?
As the saying goes, "Money makes the mare go." Living in the contemporary society, more and more people are becoming money-oriented whether voluntarily or reluctantly. Sometimes, they should be reminded that becoming rich is not the only purpose of life.
If one spends all his life pursuing nothing but money, he might live in a big house and drive a luxury car when he gets old. However, a person's material need is within limits. One cannot live in two houses and drive two cars at the same time. Neither should one take in two persons' amount of food. Besides, people's desire and ambition to make money could be infinite. More of money doesn't always make us happier. More of Money tends to make us used to that money and desirous of having even more of that.
Therefore, we should look around and find other goals of life. For example, one can live a meaningful life by discovering his gift and making the best of it. One can also live a happy life by making more friends and building a joyful family.
On the Senior Empty Nests
For most senior students in universities, the last academic year has nothing to do with academics. To the frustration of professors, few courses are attended by students. And dorms are almost vacant with few lodgers. This kind of phenomenon, which has been called “Senior Empty Nests”, is common among universities of China.
Where have those absent senior students gone? Some lucky dogs have gone to their new jobs while the majority are still striving to get a job or engaging in their internship outside of the campus. The severe employment pressure has pushed senior students into employment market earlier. The anxiety of getting a job before graduation disturbs the restless mind of every student, which leads to skipping school of most students.
In my view, with senior students leaving campus earlier, their time of education has been reduced, which puts them in a disadvantaged position in the employment market. Students should start job hunting after finishing the courses of the last academic year. At the same time, the universities should provide career education for senior students.

Currently，the frequent job-hopping of graduates has aroused wide concern among the public. Does anyone hold the same attitude toward this phenomenon? Definitely not. As to this issue, opinions vary from person to person.
Those who hold the opinion that job-hopping is beneficial to graduates claim that by doing so, the youngsters are more likely to (更有可能)have a better knowledge of （更了解）other fields and then to expand their horizons（开阔视野）. Moreover，changing jobs frequently offers workers a chance to move up to a better position（到更好的工作岗位）. However, others take a totally different view that job-hopping is detrimental to one’s career development. For one thing, as the common saying goes,“a rolling stone gathers no moss.” （滚石不生苔）The more frequent you change your job, the less likely you are to be an expert in a particular area.（在某个特定的领域） Secondly, this behavior will leave on the employers an impression of （给雇主留下印象）instability and immaturity（不稳定和不成熟）. It is no wonder that ,when interviewing a candidate, a employer will raise a question （提问） like“you’ve changed jobs quite frequently. How do we know you’ll stay if we hire you? ”
From my perspective, frequent job-hopping would not necessarily be a bad thing.（并非是件坏事） it may offer them a broader space for career development. （更大的发展空间）When people join a company，the brand new working environment，new colleagues and new enterprise cultural atmosphere （企业文化氛围） will definitely motivate their enthusiasm for （激发他们的工作热情） the new job and thus, prompt their career to a new level.（让职业生涯更上一个台阶） thus, I will try several posts before finding the one that is perfectly fit for me and after that I will remain in the post and spare no efforts to have it well done（竭尽全力将工作做好）.
I’m a 19-year-old female sophomore named Fu Ping. I hereby earnestly invite a foreign young lady—college student preferred—to make a three – week touring trip with me.
My plan is to set off next weekend, when the vacation officially begins. The first stop is Kunming, the world-renowned city for its beauty and mild temperature. We’ll get there by train and stay there for 2 days, and then we’ll head for Jinggangshan, a former revolutionary base as well as a natural beauty spot. After a 3-day visit there , we will take a long-distance coach to a nearby port city by the Changjiang River and board a downstream ship to Shanghai, so that we can enjoy the great scenery alongside the third longest river in the world. As everybody knows, Shanghai is the busiest and fastest developing city in China. I’d like to have a look at its prosperity, so the stay there will be about half a week. And a famous Chinese saying goes, ”Just as there is Paradise in heaven, there are Suzhou and Hangzhou on Earth ”, so a 4-day visit to these two cities near Shanghai is must. All together, our trip will last about three weeks.
I only expect that my travel-mate could split the expenses with me and talk with me in beautiful English, and I would be an excellent guide for her since I major in tourist guiding.
Those interested please contact me either through email (email@example.com) .
