look! there is a rainbow! on the first day of my university life, when i walked into the campus, there was a rainbow bridging over the fountain, i hadn’t seen rainbow for a long time. i was so excited, and leaped high with joy. my ponytail danced with my happiness. it was a propitious sign indicated that my life in university would be colorful, and actually it is!
after my entry into university, i found my life so busy. what i should do is not only gaining the scholarship but also being a good monitor and leader of shanghai university percussion band. i got the 1st and 2nd price of scholarship in my 2 years of study. i organized charity donations for schoolmates with financial difficulty or disease. every week, i give drum lesson to new members of our percussion band. and there are always a lot of non-business performances, such as entertaining guests, celebrating party, cultural exchange with foreign students delegations and their bands. of course, part-time job is indispensable in my vacations. i ask for no payment but aim at getting accustomed to the society.
sometimes, my friends advise me not to tire myself out with such a tight schedule. i wake up before the rooster crow, and continue working till very late when others are enjoying their sweet dreams. every time i come back from the rehearsal of percussion band, i have to finish my homework with the help of my own charged light because of the blackout in out dormitory. maybe such kind of life is something like an ascetic, but we should work hard and try hard in our youth, aren’t we?
when i represented shanghai university to take part in the pond’s new century lady competition held in may, when i show off on the stage, when i emerged as “the girl of vitality”, i made use of every bit of time to compensate the classes i had missed, i made use of every chance to learn from other girls with vitality, versatility and intelligence, i made use of this opportunity to present our university students’ state of mind.
there is a little bitterness in my busy life, but at the same time, there is sweetness. it is colorful. i make fun out of it. i love it. when i snatch a little leisure i lie on the green grass, reading books, i cripple myself in the window-seat in our library---the 2nd largest in shanghai---i absorb knowledge like a hungry sponge, i wonder along the bank of river, listening to oriels in willows and get a splendid sunset view of the campus. the sky is drunk with the sunset; i am drunk with the sweetness of my like.
