Whoop. Finished my applications and now all I can do is waiting and praying. LMAO.

Actually, I am not a high-GPA guy. I hate the education system in China, which is exam-oriented, dull and uninteresting. In this system, the high scores go to those who study for tests rather than those who study for knowledge, like me… That’s a pity. I have heard that many students transferred from China to the U.S colleges think it is different between earning GPA in the US and earning GPA in China. In the US you need just work hard on that course and think more, but in China heh, heh, heh.

I hope that’s true. My GPA in High School and in University is totally different from each other. In High School, I am kinda study-master (lol) as I spent little time but get high scores. In college, I spent so much time but earned a JUNK GPA which is lower than 3.0 with a 4.0 scale. I don’t think they have taught me anything and I got to learn everything by myself. Dude!


But anyway, I am back! Will update more for you guys!

OK. Get a rare break from TOEFL. The test I had just taken taught me a lesson that I shall never get nervous in test lol. There’s little hope for me to reach 100 this time but if not so, I will go for my 2nd TOEFL test in the coming few months of 2017. My goal is to get 100+ Score in TOEFL in 2017.

So, As the result of I don’t want to talk too much,  this tutorial will be extremely short. The advantages of ChaCha20 can be easily found through Google, please help yourself if you need it. Be sure to make the necessary changes if you are not using CentOS!

In China, it is only 1 day left before the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party. Lol. To be honest it is the first time that the Communists make such a big noise just for their congress. =(.

I still remember when the 1st Congress was held, they secretly and quietly held the meeting in a lecture hall, hoping that nobody would know.

But today, look at them! Nearly a century later, they are acting proudly as if fearing that nobody would know they are about to have a meeting!

But at the same time, they still fear that someone will come to sabotage. They raised the security level everywhere over and over again, interrupt the express deliveries, cut down the internet communications, and even mute anyone who dares to criticize. It’s hilarious that a post from National Weather Service, a Typhoon Yellow Warning, was deleted due to it is related to the word “Yellow”, which also means “Pornographic” in Mandarin. (Later they deleted the complaint from National Weather Service that their weather warning was deleted by mistake.) In this special period, they are releasing a signal that “No one makes trouble!”.

I guess it is another form of “the government fears the people”? I used to believe that the Communist Party do not fear their people, but I was wrong: they finally noticed that no one is THEIR PEOPLE. More and more people would rather not to believe the Communist Party nowadays.

But, as the Iron Curtain was formed, will it be possible to break it? Nowhere to get the answer. Maybe the Mao II is coming.

Yes, I QUITTED (Actually it is a SUSPENSION but do you guys expect me to go back for it? ) from my UNIVERSITY, Dalian Maritime University. But, why? Why (did) I just give up the most valued thing for normal Chinese senior high school students, the thing they have fought for (at least) 12 years,  making myself become the unordinary one, choose the way of learning TOEFL and maybe SAT/ACT if required, then studying abroad?

The society is rapidly developing and we may be required to migrate our AppleID location. Due to personal reasons, sometimes we are not able to get a payment method in the target country/region so we do not meet the requirement of Apple. (Apple requires anyone who applies for a migration provide an available payment method, such as Credit Card/ Debt Card in the new region/country.)
