Just now I checked the academic calendar for the next semester and found that there will be 12 days of classes in September, 13 days of classes in October, 18 days of classes in November, and 17 days of classes in December. There will be 60 days of classes in total. If there were seven hours of classes on average every day, there would be 420 hours in total, or 17.5 days…in other words, the Winter break is only 17.5 days away… What’s heartening? This is heartening…

In just a few days, the senior brothers [older male students] at every university will exchange their flip-flops for canvas shoes or leather shoes, exchange their shorts for jeans or slacks, exchange their tank tops for T-shirts or shirts, they will hold back their lewd smiles, hide their horny expressions, and become mature little men, showing you the way, help you carry your bags, answer your questions, ask for your phone numbers, add you on Renren [a major Chinese social networking site], ask you out to dinner… junior sisters [younger female students], the senior brothers are all ready, how about you?

For the school orientation season, one must read the “Things You Must Know When Entering School”: 1. Senior brothers [older male students] who take the initiative to talk to you are not good senior brothers; 2. Good senior brothers are those who don’t have time to take care of junior sisters [younger female students]; 3. The more senior brothers you know, the less respect you will earn from other people; 4. The senior brothers from your hometown are the most dangerous ones; 5. The senior brothers who are concerned about your academics must be hypocrites; 6. The senior brother’s smile is a signal of mischief, and the senior brother’s ambiguity is the prelude to his “plans”; 7. The senior brothers who are immaculate dressed when welcoming you [during the orientation] are only neat that one day of the year.

A nice warning to junior brothers [younger male students, here referring to first-year students]: Your senior sisters [older female schoolmates] are ours; our junior sisters [younger female schoolmates] are ours, and when necessary, you are ours too.

I visited my parents’ home, in quite a rush, and left the dishes in water in the sink unwashed. When I came home a week later, the dishes I left one week ago were still there in the water. In this hot summer, surprisingly, they had not begun to smell at all. My husband proudly said to me, “Of course! I changed the water every day!”
