Broke up with my girlfriend of 4 years. Feeling as if the world was about to end, I boarded a double-decker bus. Beside me sat a beautiful girl but I couldn’t even muster the interest to check her out! The conductor came over to sell fare tickets. I thought it was a bus with air conditioning so I handed over 2 kuai [buses in China are divided into air conditioned and non-air-conditioned, with a lower ticket price for the latter]. The conductor glanced at the two of us, tore two 1 kuai ticket stubs off, and gave them to me. I was confused for a second but, being too lazy to explain, I just continued leaning my head against the window thinking back on my four-year relationship and before I knew it, tears covered my face! The beautiful girl suddenly said: It was just 1 kuai, was [inadvertently paying for me] really worth [crying over]?


Over the next semester of four months, do you take studying as your partner, for richer or for poorer, no matter if there is a computer or a mobile phone, no matter how sleepy or tired you are, no matter how much you want to eat or sleep, you will always put studying first, with not flunking a subject as your goal, to share both happiness and hardship working towards the same goal without ever giving up, to cherish her, respect her, understand her, and protect her? Do you? Yes I do~!

Nobody should prevent me from studying.
Nobody should prevent me from studying!

A life’s glory is in 12th grade. Thereafter, flunking was often one’s partner.

I remember one time in university we had a fire drill, so some brothers were upstairs playing the role of victims [people trapped in need of help] while downstairs the university’s leaders stood. Those brothers waved their socks and flirtatiously called out, “Da ye [a respectful way to address older men], come up and play~~~”

Prostitutes in a Hong Kong movie

[Note: The male students were acting like the prostitutes in ancient China commonly portrayed in movies and TV dramas.]

A male classmate is especially good at taking care of his looks. Before going on a trip, he brought along all kinds of cosmetics [skincare products]. Another female classmate made fun of him only for the male classmate to boldly and confidently say, “This is why I have a boyfriend and you don’t.”

#Why Forgo Treatment#

Originally this phrase came from an quote by Yang Yongxin, an doctor who treated youth for internet addiction. Several teenage internet addicts used electroconvulsive therapy [electroshock therapy] in the course of their treatment were criticized and subsequently stopped their electrocunvulsive therapy. “Why forgo treatment” was said by Professor Yang, the original meaning being “why do you want to forgo treatment for internet addictions”, but now often used to tease as well as mock oneself, with the same meaning as “stop taking medicine/stopping treatment”.
