After graduating from high school, I faced the choice between going to college domestically(在国内)and studying abroad. Although it happened more than three years ago, the tangled feelings(纠结的心情) I experienced at that time are still impressive to me. Studying abroad was fairly attractive to many students, including me, for mainly two reasons. The first reason was that going abroad was aperfect excuse for us to avoid the college entrance examination, which was, it is not exaggerated to say(豪不夸张的说), everyone’s nightmare. The other reason is that many of us are curious about life in a foreign country, away from the control of parents. However, considering thatmy English skill isnot good enough to pass the SAT and I couldn’t communicate with local peoplesmoothly, I finallydecided to stay in China and join the college entrance examination. In this way, Iwould have moretime to improve my English. Actually, now I can say, that was a wise choice. Afterthe high school, I went to another city to go to college. At first, I felt overwhelmed(不知所措) aboutfacing all the stuff in a completely new place by myself, but I gradually got used to it and started to enjoy the freedom.I also made many friends coming from different countries. It felt amazing that people from all corners of the country(来自五湖四海) with different habits and stories were gathering together.Therefore, I feel really grateful about the choice I made, because I can’t imagine what I would miss if I chose the other way.
