Independence is very important for everyone because we will be away from our family to study and work outside one day. Sometimes i feel that I am very independent by myself, sometimes I feel that I am very weak by myself.
This was when I first worked in Shenzhen last year. I lived in my sister's home when I was looking for a job. I didn't do anything while I looked for a job. My sister bought some food such as meat, some vegetables and so on to cook every day. She never let me help when I tried to give her a hand. She would always smile and say, "You look for your job attentively." So I even didn't wash the bowls. I relied on her so much.
Recently I looked for another job. My sister isn't in Shenzhen now. I had to learn to be independent by myself. I was alone when I rented an apartment outside. I like to live in a neat room, so I wipe the floor and clean the room every day. In addition to this, I must learn how to cook and make soup. I cooked twice, but the rice was still very wet. It was same with the soup which was too strong flavoured. It was not delicious. I was successful the third time I cooked. I was very happy that I learnt to how to cook at last.
Sometimes I feel alone in a room. I don't want to ask my classmate or colleagues to accompany me. I know they must be busy working and very tired every day. When I am bored, I read English text and English grammar, listen to music and go online with my mobile.I hope I can find a better job soon but at the same time I wanted to have a good rest and relax while looking for a job.
Independence is a good thing, but I feel that it's better have a person to accompany you. You wouldn't feel alone and afraid. Maybe it is time for me to find a boyfriend.
