I AM BACK！
Today is the third day since I came back to HZ. From the day before yesterday, there has been no sunlight in the sky at all. I can hardly get through the sharp transformation of the pure and blue sky with a smiling sun in BJ to the dark and cloudy sky in HZ. What was better is that it was snowy yesterday, and this proved again that wherever I go in winter, there will be a big snow. Other proofs are: when I went to Xian for the first time six or seven years ago, there was a huge snow, and there had not been snowy for six years yet; when I went back to BJ one month ago, BJ welcomed the first formal and the only snow in the whole winter; and when I went to YT during this winter vacation, it was still snow there saying hello to me! But the gloomy days really frustrated me. With pressures, it almost makes me get tristimania. And the worst of all is that I had to suffer the cold and sodden quilt for another day.
The day before yesterday, I got my Toefl scores. As I wished, the score of TWE is good, 5.0. But the rest is not that good. Especially, the part of reading comprehension is too bad. I had to ask about whether every single part will be a disadvantage. However, thank God, my mother’s fellow has a relative who could help me check the score, or I had to wait for another hard two or three weeks.
Yesterday, I watched two movies. One is about a story of ‘too close to forget’, the other one is about ‘too close to kill’. The former one is ‘The forgotten’, and the latter one is ‘Odd girl out’.
‘The forgotten’ has been for a long time in my movie document of my note-pad. It told a story about extraterrestrial intelligences adopted six children for an experiment to test whether people will forget these we have once been acquainted with or even loved deeply. In the movie, except the hero and the heroine, nobody else could remember those ‘gone’ children, and they even could not remember there was an airplane crushing at all. Only Sam’s mother could remember that her son had existed for eight years, and she then tried to arouse the hero’s memories about his daughter Lauren. Then the two parents began their way to find their children and other’s lost memories. I used to regard this movie as a very horrible one, but now I look on it as a psychological one. The whole story was fabricated with no faults at all. The only thing I can not understand is that why only Sam’s mother and Lauren’s father could remember their children. The other four’s parents, on the contrary, forgot their enamored children easily. If we could calculate this on the ration in the movie, only one third of the world’s parents could remember their children after they were gone. What a pity! No matter how unsuccessful the extraterrestrial intelligences thought about their experiment, they actually won the whole game because they proved that human beings are cold animals, and in most cases, memories have nothing to do with emotions. However, I can not agree with this. Though there is no proof to show that how much a mother can love her child, the memories about the closest person in the world can never be that easily-taken. We can be the forgotten ones for others, but hardly for our parents. We are ‘too close to forget’. Really moving!
The other movie ‘Odd girl out’ seemed to be too simple. It tells a story of high school girls in the United States. The only impression of the movie giving to me is that my high school classmates are all saints. The way they hurt each other can hardly be compared with the behaviors in the movie. Spreading slanderous rumors and satires are only small pieces of a big cake. Cheating and betraying are usual practice. It is not surprising the heroine at last chose suicide. Nevertheless, the Americans are very nice. They finally let the girl get stronger and say ‘you have nothing I want’ to her ex-closest friend. Because of their too close friendship, the girl got hurt very easily, as every secret she had was published quickly, such as she is getting fat or she treats friendship so seriously, and even her original paper! The story seemed to try telling us, never believe in her! She is too close to kill you! And now I know what the standard principle of choosing a friend, being as silent as a grave…… People in 209 will get together again this evening. Anther semester finally begins though I have so much reluctance. In the coming days, I have to begin another hard trip for my GRE tests again, and I just hope I can go with a light heart and get the destination with great achievement!
