I am a lucky girl.

I have the nicest parents to take care of me and arrange the life besides studies. In my childhood, Almost every weekends they would take my brothers and I to go outside instead of being a couch potato. NCKU was really an ideal place. Bridges and trees make the college of literature more romantic just like the Tang poems had praised. Also, we often went mountain-climbing, too. Every time I climbed up for the bambo-shoots-soup vendor at the mountainside and went down for chicken soup at the bottem. And the bookstore was one of our favorite place, not only because of the air-conditioner but the mountain like bookshelves. My brothers are the best, too. They always let me pick what I want first and help me when I was stuck by the computer problems. To be honest, I am really poor at anythings connected to machines.

That's how I grew up. When other members dedicate themselves to the family, I just took them for granted. I didn't learn to take on more while aging. Still being a little princess, which never exist in a realistic world. I was quite arrogant and selfish when I was young. And those weren't the parents should afford.

The volcano would finally explode.

Once, when my parents were busy participating in my class trip, help preparing and carrying the the food. I did nothing but keeped asking how well they had done as well as saying "hurry up." At the morning before going, I sat at the sofa, watching parents busy setting stuffs. My Dad was quite angry about that. He yelled at me" Stop asking others to do things for you, think about what you can do to others." I was shook at that time. Tears came out immediately. During the trip, I am much more quite than before.

After, I didn't change lot. But I learned a lesson that I should do something active rather than waiting for help. Now, I would help when Father and Mother are busy. Though I still not a good daughter but better than before.
