1. Water is great medicine needed to maintain a healthy body and a clear mind. About 60%of your body is water and you must constantly resupply it. The standard recommendation is to drink at least 8 glasses a day. When you are exercising, your need even more water because you are sweating and losing water. Of course, warm temperatures also increase water loss. Just walking for an hour on a warm day may increase your requirement by 2 glasses or more.
要保持身体健康,头脑清醒,水是最好的药品。你身体的60%是由水组成的,你必须不断地补充水份。标准的建议是每天至少喝八杯水。当你做体育运动的时候,会需要更多的水,因为你在不停地流汗、失水。当然炎热的天气也会增加失水。如果你在炎热的天气里走上一小时,就要多喝2杯水。

2. Some people might think that being a foreign student is an easy task to do. It is not true. We live between two worlds. One, a world of memories, a world of the past where we get our strength to deal with the difficulties of growing up to and adapting to new places, a world that nobody here knows. Two, a world of the present, strange and unfamiliar. A world where only we can take care of ourselves. A world where the rules and values are so different from the ones I was born to.
有些人可能认为在国外读书是一件很容易的事情。但事实并非如此。我们生活在两个世界里:一个是记忆的世界,即过去的世界,我们从那里获得力量,来解决成长中的困难、适应新的地方,那是身处现在世界的人并不知道的一个世界。另外一个是现在的世界,一个陌生的、不熟悉的世界。在这样的世界里,只有我们自己才能照顾自己,这个世界的规则和我们生来所知的世界是不同的。
