My reading of this poem brings me backthethought of the summer holiday ofmyhigh school senior year. The holiday was of great importance because we just took a college entrance examination and facedwith a choice that was perhaps most important in our lifetime.
It is not exaggerating to say that habitsdetermine how much a person can achieve. This is due to the magical power thathabits have. It can redouble the effort of our daily behavior。
The vital choice was to select a college among hundreds of colleges.
Take this for example: if you recite oneword every day, you will add 365 words to your vocabulary by one year, and 700words by two years, and 1400 words before graduation which is by far beyond thecurricular of CET-6. While if you spend two hours on playing computer games—whichis far less than how much time is spent in reality for college students—youwill probably get addicted to it and fail your study. This phenomenon can beeasily found in the college that it is high time for us to be aware of theimportance of habits. We should cultivate good habits and get rid of the badhabits such as staying up late, being addicted to games, consumingextravagantly, etc as soon as possible。
Facing the big question, I spent almost one week thinking how to do it with my father. Aftermuch research, I chose a college insidemyprovince as my first selection and our college asmysecond selection. Why did Ichoose likethis? It wasbecause my parents wanted me to go to a college nearby my hometown, nearby them. However, after the result was out, I was admitted to our college. That result let somewhat my parents downsothey wanted me to study in high school onemore year. At that time, actually, I was also unsatisfied with my scores of the examination because I thought I could getahigherscore.
Rome was not built in oneday. We can accumulate a great fortune by the tiny efforts we made every day. Fromnow on say good bye to the bad habits and stick to the good ones, we will enjoya profitable return in the future.

So then, there were two roads beforeme.Study again or go to college?WhichoneI should choosewasa really really hard choice. Aftermuchthinking, Ifinallydecided to the roadofcollege. It was because I was quite eager to college life and I really didn’t want to experience the high school senior year again.
Maybe you see my subject title you must be very curious. I am sure you will say : what the hell!? Dating with subway? Are you crazy? I know almost people don’t like taking subway,,especially weekday,rush hour,and holiday time, almost the subway is "People mountain People sea" but why I say I have an appointment with subway?
So,you see, I become a member of our class.
Okay hold on dears. Let me tell you my story with him.
金沙网址，In the first few days of college, I, sometimes,wondered what would it had been like if I had chosen to study in high school again. But I think that’s a stupid thought.
I want to show you a picture. You can see these data,right? What’s meaning for these number? I will explain you.
Why to say this?
There aretwo reasons. Ontheone hand, weare alreadythe adults, weare alreadythe grown-ups. We need to be responsible for our decisions. On the other hand,andmore importantly, every road has its advantages and disadvantages. Every time we meet obstacles in this road we have selected we would complain or feel disappointed and say to ourselves: “ Oh, why didInotchoose another road ? How wonderful itwould beenif Iwould chosenanother road.” But when we spenda good timein this roadwe justforgetit.
I live in Gushu, Baoan district, a place which is close to airport , but I work in Laojie,Luohu district. So from Gushu to Laojie, I have to cross 3 districts, Nanshan district, Futian district and finally Luohu district. There are 26 stations from here to there. And one day , double 26, I have to take 52 stations everyday. It spend me more than three hours with the subway, isn't it like my boyfriend? So that why I say “Dating with subway”
Looking backat myfreshman year andthelast months, I don’t feel regretful. Although having met some unpleasant things, I still enjoy my college life. I know you,I know good teachers,I know many friends, I join many clubsandI participate in many activities.My ability has been improved a lot. I learn, I study, I read, I practice, and finally I become better myself. I become better and better myself. So I’m not regretful at all.
Now you hear you might say OMG, unbelievable . Taking 52 stations per day! Perhaps you might say I am crazy . Even you might say Jessica you are stupid to waste the precious time and money. Or you will nice, giving me some suggestions ,like : ask me to rent an apartment near my office , or find a job near my house my family .
Finally, I also want to saysome words to you, that is also to say, I want to make a suggestion to you:
You must curiously ask " what I am doing in subway during 26 stations?
Although that road not taken will arouse our imagination, we should not be puzzled by it.We are what we choose and wecanonlymake one choice once. Thus,we must learn to think before making every decisionin our lifetime, especially those vital decisions. Think both good and bad aspects of the decision and think twice,be patient,finallymake a rational decision.
Am I real wasting time?
To be honest, to beginning of half month, indeed I though I am wasting time .I always watching movie/ TV show,Playing the mobile game and chatting friends in We-chat to spend my traffic time. Even I would download some tv show some movie in phone in advance ，and then I would enjoy in subway. Everyday I do same thing
However, one day, I record a time of day what I spent. Looking at the time report, Let me feel upset. I found many time I waste I do many meaningless things . I know if I no change No take some action . I would blame myself in future . So I want to change . I want to do more meaningful things.
Later, I try to read, try to use of spare time to create values . My initial purpose is to foster the habit of reading. I want through book company me day and night instead of watching videos.
Do you know？So far ,from leaving school to work , Just 9months now. I found I fall in love with Mr. Subway not complain about it at all .Here I gonna tell you good news:There are three achievements I have made.
First of all,I am proud of telling you the one of greatest achievements I've made this year is to foster the habit of reading.
Last night I make a book list which I have read during 9 months. I can't believe it! Nine months , total 10 books I already read, that mean each month I can read a book . This is such a big deal for me. You can't image before 9months ago I completely don't like reading , picking up book just let me feel sleepy! Now I'm so proud of myself!
However sometime I would learn English in subway. I spent time to memorize some words. The second achievement I have done is I finished BEC intermediate vocabulary and Spanish basic vocabulary. I get great pleasure from memorizing words.
The third thing, during the subway,I made lots of interesting friends who have common interests. Some book lover are curious about my book what I am reading. We exchange books and share ideas learn form that books .I always met some English lover ,we exchange English ,and recommend some leaning English app each other . Some foreigners think I am special I can read with crowed and noisy subway.
These three great achievements from me on the subway, I fully use the traffic time to learn and grow.
In fact, today I want to through my story, calling on everyone to cherish and manage our precious time. Time is fair, everybody has 24 hours.But remember that time waits for no one. If we spend more time on the meaningless things , you must be regret one day. Once you let it slip away, you’ll never chase it back. Watching TV, playing games, these can be used as a leisure time to enjoy, but if you have enough free time as I do, let’s picking up books instead of watching videos!
Treasure every moment that we have!Use of free time, do some more meaningful things,create more valuable things ,make you life brightly. I believe that as long as you learn to manage time in the future you'll thank yourself!
Finally I want to say :, . Thank you Mr. Subway.Because of you, I learn a lot.
