today i will share my uneven schooling experiences with you. well, you must know one thing, if you admire the person mentinoned by Dalin in the article, who can face all the difficulies on the way to self-taught exam, you can admire me. why? i am the living example.
in 1995, i sat for the entrance examination. the result of 524 was not bad for me because i was hospitalized just one month before the important exam, and all the teachers and students though i could only get less than 5oo at that time. and fortunately i surpassed the minimum mark for four-year college students. it only required 516. yet unfortunately, i did not meet the requirement of the college (shangxi financial institute. financing was very popular at that time) i intended to go. it required 529. you know, the operation is quite different nowadays. today, you can make up mind which college you want to go after you know your marks. yet, we had to settle everything down before we knew the marks. so, i failed to go to the four year college, but succeeding in getting the chance of three-year college learning in SISU(my mother school, just like you in changsha university. yes, i cried a lot because i was one of the excellent at high school, yet i could not go to key university for study. what;s worse, i was only a three- year college student. yet, i never gave up. in the latter part of the my first year at college, i began to take the self-taught exam. in 1998, i graduated from SISU, with only one subject (the damned politics and economics! i failed it once and i had to deal with it after the graduation)left to get the cerfiticate of undergradtate course. you may say i am so lucky that i can get my certificate soon. yet, it is the just the beginning of my unevenly struggling life. it was hard for to find a proper job in Chongqing just because of my schooling. and they would not accept the self-taught students. with the help of my uncle, i became a teacher in a vocational school. yet, the authorities did not take me seriously because i was a three-year college graduate! they arranged me to "deal with" those naughty girls, and many other inequality occured during the three working years. here, i must point out in 1999 i covered all the undergraduate course and got the cerficate finally. just becuae of the unequal treatment, i decided to struggle against my life. in 2001, i sat for entrance examination for postgraduate. and i made it! you can imagine how excited i was at that time. and i cried again, but with joy. in 2004, after another three-year learning in SISU, i faced the problem of finding a job. at that time, i thought i could find a good one because i was a postgraduate. yet, life is always full of ups and downs. after i posted my resume to all the key universities in changsha, i waited patiently and hopefully. however, the answer to nearly 3 -month's waiting was that i could not be a teacher in the key universities even though i was a postgraduate because i was once a three-year colldge student! and they even did not give me a chace to stand on the satge to show my teaching ability! you see, how unequal the society is! at last, i signed a contract with changsha university because it did not care whether i was a three-year college student or not during the college years and it is near to the university where my husband is still pursuing his doctor's degree. so, here i am! that 's also the reason that you could meet an english teacher, miss yang. hehe!
well, how about my life experience? is it much more struggling that the one described by mr Dalin? i know, my futrue will still be full of challenges, yet, i will never give up. so, i am teaching heart and soul, i am writing some good articles, and in the futrue i will also pursue my doctor's degree. i will not be ashamed of the fact that i was once a three-year college student. on the countrary, i will show to the world that every one can the owner the his own destiny, and i will have my own and leave no regret in my life.
i hope my story can encourge you to fight against the troubles you have these dyas or in the near future. i bet you can also be a successful person in your own eyes!
