One of my close friends told me that it should be "work hard, play hard, then DIE fast."
Life is something we never know clearly. It is a long,long journey all by oneself.
We have every right to choose the style of our lives. Some people set their lives to leisure edition, whileas some people set theirs to hard working. There is no bad or good in the world. Just different. And difference makes the world more fancy and enjoyable.
I'll work hard and play hard. But it won't possibly lead to die fast.
Life is what it should be. Enjoy everything.
First travel to Birmingham.
For the police registration.
Though it is the second biggest city in the UK, I found it was just industrial and of medium size. The subway station where i went for toilet was old and cold.
The church in the centre of the city was beautiful and impressing. Shopping malls were huge and lots of fun, for i am always a person who is crazy about shopping. I controlled myself successfully not buying useless items this time.
I dislike British food at all. When i felt cold in the rain, what i eagerly need was just a hot cappucino and a warm dish. I still cannot understand the eating habits here in England. Why so many cold sandwiches or baguettes? How strong a British's stomach should be!!!
Vegetable and fruit are cheaper in the open market in Birmingham than in Coventry city centre. But adding the travel expense together, i don't think it worth going to Birmingham for shopping every each weekend. Perhaps once a month is the best.
