I hope that if I look back on my life when I am old, getting that toefl score would be something of a turning point of my life.
What is after Toefl? I haven’t thought much about it before. SAT? Filling in college admission form? I cannot not care about it this time, because this time, it IS getting real; this time it IS about making THE significant difference. Few things really matter in life, and this is one of them.
In fact we hold the course of our lives all the time, ALL THE TIME. But we aren’t until we realize it. Every second of what we are doing CAN alter our life path. If you change every second of your life, in several years you can be completely different from what you are right now.
I cannot think of the future this time, it comes too soon enough. Dreams are good, but they aren’t what they are until one realizes it. Sometimes you just know what the future is going to be, you just know it.
