I’d like to talk about a trip I want to have in the future. In china, there’s a place in Qinghai province, where you can see hundreds of stars at night. It’s far away from the hustle and bustle of modern city. The air’s so fresh, sky so clear. There’s no other place like it in china. I could have that trip a few months ago. However, I missed it.

Actually, it has been on my bucket list since when i was in high school. So couple weeks ago, my friends and I spent weeks making plans for it, booking hotel rooms, reading tons of blogs written by those back packers, buying gears.

Everything went very well. But at the last minute, something came up. I was informed that I needed to go on a business trip to meet some high profile client. It’s urgent, as they said. I asked my boss if if I could do it another time. His words were cold. He just told me that’s impossible. So my trip was ruined. I saw my friends off at the airport, wishing them everything the best. I was so sad.
They had a wonderful time there. They sent me a photo which captured the most beautiful starry night I have ever seen. You can’t imagine how frustrated I was. I swear I will have that trip in the near future.

Part 3

Can you explain why some people always have their plans but some are not?
I think it depends their personality. Some people like to make plans before their action, so they can know clearly what they should do step by step. However, some people like me don’t like plans, because sometimes even you make perfect plans, things will not happen as you planned.

Do you have any study plan? Why?
Sometimes I have. Every new semester, I will make study plans for the whole new term, because as a new term, I think I should have a change. But the reality is that in the first few days, I will study according to my plans. After that, I totally forget my plans.

What`s the goal for young generation? Why?
I guess most young people want to be rich, because they just graduate from college and are under great pressure from their parents and themselves. They want to be rich so that they can support their families and fulfill their own dreams.

What`s the goal for older generation? Why?
For the old, I think they hope that their children have a good job and happy family. Because the old people always care more about their children than themselves. They think only when their children live a happy life can they feel happy as well.

Do you think people should do their own plan every day? Why?
I don’t think so. Just behaving according to plans seems to be a little inflexible. We can’t predict what happens in our lives. We should learn how to deal with accidents.

What do you think some people who doesn`t do any plan ever?
I believe everyone has their own habits and characters. Even if some people never have plans, I don’t think they are wrong or need to change. We all deserve to have different attitudes towards life.

Someone says you cannot success without a plan, what do you think?
Generally it is true. With clear plans, people know what to do and they know the direction of their lives and work hard to fulfill it. According to many successful men, we can know that most of them have clear plans and they know what they want.

How teenagers do their career plan? Why?
Firstly, I think teenager should figure out what they are interested in and what they want to do. Then they can set goals and list the steps by which they fulfill their goals. Certainly, they can take some advice from their parents and teachers.

Do you think it’s important to make money in the future? Why?
Absolutely. Without money, we can’t survive. Additionally, with the help of money, we can fulfill our dreams more easily. For example, if we want to travel around the world, when we have enough money, we can do that with worrying about money.
