Life (At) Forty

I “right away” soon-will go-pass (my) 40 year birthday. 40 years, how fast (it) went-pass!

I still remember (the) time (of) attending elementary school, every day (I) only knew climbing hills, (and) kicking ball with (my) classmates, that time (I) felt growing-big is one “jian” thing (that is) especially far being-away-from me. But middle-school(’s) three years, high-school(’s) three years, after-that college(’s) four years, “immediately after (those years)” (I) already (was) 22 years old. I in college-inside met my wife. “Once immediately after” finishing-attending college, we together came-arriving Shanghai. I went to one “jia” (of) computer company to go work, she at one “suo” (of) middle/high school to be (a) music teacher.

Now, we already in Shanghai lived almost 20 years! (In the) 20 years, I changed job (for) two times. (At the) time (of) finding the-second “ge” (of) job, me and (my) wife had our child, now, (our) child already (is) 10 years old.

At (the) time (when) (my) 40-year birthday soon-will come, I return-(and)-think-about “really quick” (the) life (of) these 40 years (of my)self: (The) 20 years (in the) front(/beginning), I still was (one) “ge” (of) student, was (one) “ge” (of) child, (the) 20 years (of) (the)-back(/later), I am (a) husband, am (a) father. How many “ge” (of) 20-years can one “ge” (of) person have? Also every one “ge” (of) 20-years all(,) “comparing with” (the) one “ge” (of 20-years) before(,) goes-pass more fast.

(In) the-next one “ge” (of) 20-years inside, I really hope (that) time (does) not go-pass that fast, (and I) also hope (that) we (as) one “family” (of) people all (be) healthy, (and) happy.
