Just enjoy life in the UK
It is time to write something about my oversea study life-life in the UK. At first, it was very strange to me and made me very curious about it. Then I found many hardness in my life-study pressure appeared and communication barriers due to language and my introverted personality. That period is really hard to me. At that time I found many other Chinese students were happy everyday and they seemed to be confident to manage every thing. So I tried to open my eyes to the new life. Now, I find that happiness is everywhere in our life. Even though sometimes I feel disappointed, sad, pain or other negative emotions, I will find the opposite side if I want to-the key is the attitude to the life.
A new attitude to my hairstyle
I haven’t had my hair cut for almost two months. It never happened to me when I am in china. I am a clean guy and I like the feeling of fresh and cool, so usually I have my hair cut every three weeks when I am in my homeland. I never have a chance for a long hairstyle and I used to consider that it would give people an impress of degenerate, decadence and emptiness loneliness loss. So when I was too tired and too busy to have my hair cut in the UK, I usually could not feel happy and cheer myself up.
But now when I learn to adapt new environment and overcome difficulties, I can find more happiness. Long hair doesn’t always make me disappointed and tired. After taking a shower, I feel it is so cool, my flat mate said so, too!
Attitude is so important. Life can be more interesting if you can accept it in a right way. Do difficulties in my life make me mad? NO! I will overcome them and find the exhilaration of victory!
So just enjoy life in the UK. Keep on and enjoy it!
When it comes to copyright, it is easy for me to understand it. Everybody knows what copyright means but is it close to our daily life? At least it is not so closed or so important to my daily life. I think it is the same with most Chinese people because in china, we just download or copy what we are interested in and never give consideration to copyright, license, etc. the government admit copyright in law but never take effective actions to safeguard it and there is no protection of copyright is not violated especially when it happens to common people’s daily life such as downloading free mp3 or videos from internet rather than commercial or academic context.
I don’t want to criticize the government so much or condemn people’s behaviors as mentioned above to show my noble qualities. I won’t to avoid admitting that I never pay to download music or whatever, either. On the contrary, I think there are some reasonable grounds for crowd behavior.
Downloading music without payment is one of the most common phenomena. So it is a good example to be analyzed. First, I think the essence of composing music is to share it. All the composers want their works be listened to. That is to say music itself (or other artistic form such as video) is composed for audience. So to the extent copyright is a kind of obstruction for music spreading. Second, with the development of internet, people have many convenient ways to obtain what they want. Even though there is no link for a free download, people can also copy the file from the Temporary Folders in their computers after online audition. I think most musicians themselves can agree with me. They don’t anticipate making a living by charging when people download their works. Quite many of them hope people can get their works in an easy way, the more audiences the better. So free music becomes a form of advertisement of the musicians, which make them famous. Then companies will find them and pay them-their works at least step into commercial context. Now you can know how hard Chinese people make a living and reason why there is no platform in China such as sound cloud or myspace where people can sell their works.
Sometimes it is unfair for the artists when their works are used or changed without giving a clear indication of original creators. So I prefer the Creative Commons License because it is between All Rights Reserved and Public Domain.
I hope that Creative Commons License can develop in China.

I haven’t had a habit for keeping a diary, but now I find I like to write something for my blog in the dark night. I think writing a blog is not only a way to “sell myself”, but also a good way to release my emotions. Now I am writing a post in a diary style. The difference with a “real diary” is that I hope my friends to see it. Not too many, one or two who really care about me is enough!
Let’s talk about cry. I can’t remember the exact time when I cried last time. But I am sure when I was born, I must be crying. All of us were crying when we were born but nobody of us knew the reason why we cried because we were unconscious when we were babies. So I believe cry is a gift that God gives us. We begin to know that cry is given different emotions when we grow up. We cry when we feel pain, melancholy and sadness or joyful and excited mood.
Last night I cried. Pain or melancholy and sadness hardly make me cry. The real reason which made me cry was that I was so happy yesterday. My friends! We didn’t have a call with each other for a long time. But yesterday, I must admit that traditional facility-cell phone overcame the new media. The voice coming out from my cell phone was so similar to me. We didn’t use QQ even though we can saw each other when speaking. Without any image, we just listened to each other and I cherished every encouragement and blessing from my friends.
There are few opportunities for men to cry so that they can release their emotions. I am a hardy man and I only cry when it is really worth doing that. Thank you, all my friends! I miss you a lot. I will overcome all kinds of difficulties and enjoy the whole process because I don’t have reasons to give up-just because of you!
I write the post to record the event in my life! I love you!
