Dreams for Immortality

With nowadays fast-paced technology, human is probably quite closed to reach immortality. Scientists have already done a lot to help human reach immortality, and they expect within the next 30 years, they will have accomplished their goal.

From an extremely long time ago, immortality has already been one of the biggest dreams of human, and it seems pretty awesome as well. We can also see immortality as a part of the evolution process of human: we grow to our best form, and the process of aging slows down (or even stops) so we can be at our top form for a long time, and it qualifies ‘the fittest survives’ theory. With eternal life, it’s likely that we are guaranteed the best life as we get to do everything we want.

Although it’s good for an individual, when all people on Earth reached immortality, it could be problematic. Overcrowding has already been a problem on Earth at the moment. Some people will probably have to evolve with fins and gills as they will have to live in the water before human can migrate to another planet (Maybe they’d even need to apply for visas for other planet?) In terms of work, with immortality, the retirement age will probably have to rise to thousands years old. Well, it may be fine if you have a relaxing job; but some might have to flip burgers in McDonald’s literally for centuries. With the 50% of global wealth belonging to 1% of people, the rich will still get richer, and the poor poorer. The whole society will also be unsafe, because even 30-year sentence will not be useful against criminals anymore, and they will literally do anything they want!

Well, immortality is probably a good thing to develop, but I think it’s nothing much better than having a meaningful and successful life. It’s probably better to have someone admiring your work, than living a life without anyone noticing. In this world, wealth is like the symbol of the value of a person. Not saying money is everything, but without money we cannot have anything. And in nowadays world, there are only three proper ways to get rich: 1) Inherit money from a posh family (Not for me) 2) Investment (in a sensible way) 3) Start a business/ work at the manager level at least. Options 2 and 3 are still applicable to me, so, apart from having to do well at university and designing my future path, I’d start learning about investment. You never know, maybe this crazy little blogger here can become the next Buffett!

I rarely watched old films since I came to university. A few days ago, I heard the song ‘Up Where We Belong’ on Youtube as it came up as a recommended video. Then, I decided to watch ‘An Officer and A Gentleman’ as it was recommended by my mum for ages. Indeed, I think it’s a very good film.

First, in terms of actor/ actress, it was already amazing. Richard Gere, is like George Clooney, as he is what many guys would want to be when they get older. Although his acting is not that great (I would describe his acting as a piece of wood0, he looks great enough for the film. Debra Winger, as the main actress, is what I would describe as proper fit (Of course back at that time). She looked pretty and sweet. She definitely attracted me to the film even more!

Soundtrack-wise, ‘Up where we belong’ (or ‘Love Lifts us Up Where We Belong’) fits  into the theme of the film so well. Why? Because it’s about how the love relation of Richard Gere and Debre Winger kept Richard going with the U.S. Navy training camp. Well, sometimes when you do things for someone rather than yourself, you might do it better as you don’t wanna disappoint the other party.

I kinda like this film. I found it both realistic, and idealistic. It tells the truth that, some women at that time only wanted to marry navy pilot for the sake of the title. They would even set a trap (get themselves pregnant with the pilot) so the pilot have to marry them. It might happen in this modern world somehow, as in women seducing rich people for the sake of the wealth. They might set the same ‘trap’ too. Why is it idealistic? Debra Winger in the film is the idealistic character. From the first half of the film, we can see she loves Richard Gere so much, that it is nothing much related whether he is a navy pilot. She supports him through the tough time, and finally till Richard succeeds. Is this unrealistic? I don’t know, finding a girl who would support you through the tough time like she did, seems to be difficult in nowadays world, as there are too many choices for them that they don’t really have to stick to you. Well, this film got me, made me wanna go back and live in an earlier time. Well, if I were born earlier, it would mean, easier immigration, more romantic, and probably better, and simpler life, where freedom and warmth are everywhere.

‘Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong’, yea, that’s how people get good.

Girls should fancy guys who study English Literature

Girls should definitely fancy guys who study English Literature.

I remember my cousin ask me how she should choose a boyfriend.
I said ‘Girls should definitely find someone who study English Literature!’

Many people may have a mistaken concept: People who study English Literature are generally boring, and not as careful as the people who study Scientific subjects.
ALL ARE WRONG!
Guys who study English Literature are careful people, they can remember everything, like the publishing year, author, and every single outstanding work from every writer they like: So they must be able to remember all the important dates, like the girlfriends’ birthday, or the date for anniversary.

They have patience to take time for reading: when his girlfriend asks him to go shopping with her for a whole day, I am sure they can still deal with it comfortably.

Guys who study English literature are hard-working. When they are reading, facing lots and lots of words, most of the people are just sleeping. In summer, they read; in winter, they read. They are the toughest people in the planet, and it leads them to become successful in their career!

They definitely know the concept of ‘Words don’t come easy’, and they know it is the same for money. They are used to spending less on their own stuff, so they would end up spending more on their girlfriends. Where else can you find this kind of men?

A man studying Arts should already beat most guys in the world, but a man who studies English Literature can be called ‘the man of man’. Guys who study English Literature SHOULD LOGICALLY be the most attractive to girls!!!

Today, I share my piano covering of Yiruma’s piece , as this is the song I like.

Wait, life is about waiting, isn’t it?
Every thing takes time, so we need to wait. Of course, there is much to do before waiting for the results. Waiting, is an art, a part of life. We need to wait, until the right time, then grab the opportunity, and bring the best of ours. Take my favourite table-tennis player Zhang Jike as an example, he has trained hard in his childhood to get to the Chinese team. He did, and did not stop his hard-work. Finally, in 2012 London Olympic Game, he won the table-tennis men single’s title. He waited until his target (2012 London Olympic Game) came, then gave it ONE SHOT (like Deer Hunter), and that’s it!

Waiting for people can be a hard job. Sometimes, you did so much for her, and she does not notice, you wait, and wait, and wait, as if your waiting never ends. This, can be torturing, with regard to the reason behind your work for her. But… never mind (this is easy to say, but hard to do), at least, you tried your best, there is nothing else you can possibly do. Just keep trying, until the end of your waiting!

I have a friend, who has been facing a difficulty for a long time. I am sure it has been a difficult time for her, and I feel quite sorry that I did not quite believe it when she mentioned it for the first time. But now I know. I would try my best, to help her through (if I am needed). My friend, just wait, can you please wait? You will be fine one day, and I will be here for you.
