Young people are always encouraged to have aspirations about their futures. What is your aspiration? Can you make it a reality? While some people think that a high ambition can boost young people’s motivation to work hard, some are concerned that having a grand aspiration is simply building “castles in the air”.

Mother Nature

 

This Sunday is Mother’s Day in Hong Kong. Have you got any ideas for celebrating this special day with your mum? As we all know, the basic meaning of the word “mother” is the woman who gave birth to a child. In many cultures, this form of address is used to describe a quality that protects or nurtures something. Back in ancient times, the meaning of this term was extended to become a personification of nature.

Even though we are not weath e r forecasters, we can make simple predictions about the weather by looking at the clouds in the sky. White clouds mean that the weather is fine, but they turn grey before it rains. Since we are closely related to the natural world, we tend to make use of nature to describe our feelings about life in a philosophical way. 

Don’t feel upset that you lost in the competition. Every cloud has a silver lining.

You might have played a simple but fun game with your classmates. In this game, all players form a circle or a straight line. The teacher whispers a message, which can be a sentence or two, in the ear of the first player. Then he or she passes the message quietly to the second player, who in turn whispers to the next one. The last player speaks out the message loudly. At this point, all of you may be amused that the message has become so “inaccurate” that it is completely different from the original one.

Whether we are students or working adults, we all feel stressed when we hear a phrase like “meet a deadline”. Why do we worry about deadlines? A deadline is a time or date before which we must finish a particular task. Teachers might punish a student who does not hand in his or her homework on time, and managers might fire a worker who cannot complete his or her project before the due date
