弟弟:(Do) not think “(in) this (way)”, (admitting that fact that it) is difficult, but you (are) that hardworking, will (it be) not okay? (You) should believe in (your)self!

哥哥:(It) “is not (because)” (that I do) not believe (in my self), (it) mainly “is (because)”, students (that) want to take-test (for) Beijing University (are) too many, plus (the ones that they) attend all are the best high schools (in) there (where) they (are).

弟弟:But when (it is time that people have) not take-test-(with the result of)-finishing-(the test), we all (do) not know how (the) result will (be). (Do) not think too much, (just) work hard to prepare (for it)!

Paint-paintings and Life

(It) was from elementary school 4(th) grade (that) I started to learn paint-paintings, now (I have) already (been) painting (for) 10-something-years that long. When I attended college/university, (it) was also paint-paintings (that I) studied. Now, I(,) in one “suo” (of) high school(,) teach paint-paintings, (I) am (a) teacher. (My) friend(s) ask(s) me, why (do) you love paint-paintings “this much”? (It) was “(in) this (way)” (that) I answered:

When (I was) little (it) “was (because)” (that I) felt painting-paintings (was) fun, (I) can paint little dogs, little cats, additionally (I) can paint (my) dad(,) mom and (my) good friend(s). Now (I have) grown-(with the-result-of)-(growing)-big(/up), I more and more feel (that) painting-paintings is not one type of interest, more (over) (it) is not one “fen” (of) job, it already(,) the same as eating-meals(, and) sleeping, is one type (of) my life habit. When (I am) happy, (I) can paint one “fu” (of painting), when (I am) sad, (I) also can paint one “fu” (of painting). (The) paintings (that I) paint when (my) body (is) healthy and (when I) get sick, also are not the same. I additionally especially like to paint-paintings when I go out to travel, to paint (the) people and things (that) I encounter there. I think, after very many years waiting (until) I (am) really old (already), again take-out these paintings to look at (them) “really quick’, would (be) very interesting(, isn’t it)?
