[Every person’s Nightmare: Making choices]

Making choices is an inevitable part of our mundane lives. With every passing day, we have hundreds of choices that ought to be made, choices that can change our lives, choices that can intend sacrifice or choices that can be beneficial! We are often caught in a dilemma while making choices, be it a choosing our favorite meal of the day or a choice of buying one pair of shoes from a store! Often observed, decision making isn’t that easy. As in “The Road not Taken”, poet Robert Frost says:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

This indicates the everlasting effects of decisions we make in life. Some strive for adventure in lives while some choose the easy path ahead of them. All that matters is if we are contented in the long run.

One such major decision making all of us have overcome is the decision of studying at a university. It’s been a tough choice evaluating the various benefits thrown by the universities. More over being an international student, studying at a foreign university like CityU has been one of my life changing decisions, but has been the best decision ever that has kept me contented. So the next time you face the dilemma of making tough choices, just evaluate the pros and cons of the consequences and make the right choice! At the end of the day, it’s just you and the everlasting impact of the choices you’ve made in life!

 

【惡夢 – 選擇的分叉口】

抉擇是凡俗塵世必不可免的。日復一日,我們面對著數百個選擇,或會顛覆人生,或會承受犧牲,或會成己成物!無論是選菜,還是購鞋,抉擇常令人置身於窘境。看來抉擇並非易事。美國詩人羅勃.佛洛斯特那首名詩《未曾選擇的路》寫道:

林中兩條岔路

我選擇了人跡較少的那一條,

人生就此迥異。

他感慨生活中漫不經心的行動可影響終生。有人喜歡探險歷奇,有人喜歡平静安穩。重要的是,我們最後會稱心滿意。

人生其中一大抉擇就是上大學,尤其是你難以斟酌多間大學的好壞。再者,作為一個國際交流生,在一所外國大學如城大上學改變了我今后的際遇,這是我作過最好最稱心的決定。所以下次你在交叉點躊躇時,衡量後果利弊,作個明智之舉!最終,一切都會變得不同。
