Tonight I made a phone call to my thesis instructor, professor Zhang, asking her something about how to write the thesis. I did not attend the meeting last time for I had to take another final test. She patiently elaborated on the relevant information to me, and more surprisingly, she told me that I got A+ in the test of international accounting and complimented my efforts. My uneasy heart finally got back to the feet.
It is a shame for me to talk about again that I have been busy as a bee for the whole semester but I do not know what I have learnt finally. In the course of international accounting, except attending classes, I did not pay too much effort on it afterwards. During the several days before the exam came, I moved mountain and earth to read through the book and recite relating knowledge. On the day of the test, I got up at 6:00 in the morning amazing and finished all the wash and brush as well as my breakfast hastily. Then I concentrated myself on the textbook. At the beginning of the test, I was stricken by the first several blank-filling exercise, staring at them desperately for quite q while. I had never imagined I would have hated English so much at that time. But the situation turned better later and the following exercise was not that difficult, but still somewhat obscure. Altogether, I had a complex feeling all the way. Luckily, my English foundation was considerably solid and could express myself effortlessly, which rendered me hand in my paper one hour earlier.
Handing in the paper early appears to become my style, but it by no means indicates that I will perform well in the exam. Sometimes I can just pass the exam with a small margin, just like the programming course VB. But to my mind, I think since I have finished those I know, and I can never work out those I don’t know, why don’t I hand in the paper earlier in order to go over the next test? Therefore, after finishing the basic exercise and the additional, I handed over my paper. The so-called additional paper was actually testing your English expressing ability. The body of the question reads like: Do you thing the accounting globalization will become a trend in the future? What difficulties will we come across in the course of accounting harmonization. It was not difficult and simply requires us to present our personal views.
When my teacher told me I had performed exceptionally in the exam, I said to her with great guilt, “Sorry Ms Zhang, actually I feel guilty to you, for my efforts on the course do not deserve your score.” I also told her the confusion and difficulties I encountered in learning accounting. But she always insists on saying that I am already very industrious and I have performed quite well in her last course called financial accounting. She said that she did not work as hard as I do now when she was in college. She has been encouraging me by asking me not to be too hasty and to study what I need to learn step by step. She said that in the future after I go to work, I will have a better understanding of what I feel puzzled about now. She reminded me that my major task now is to prepare for the CPA well. Hearing her words, I was totally moved to tears. After all, there are not to many good teachers like her in our school.
As a matter of fact, I find she is very modest and always says that she did not study hard in college and her English is extremely poor. But even though I had not seen her before, I would have known that her English must be very good! Her major was a accounting when she was a bachelor. In her master’s degree and doctoral degree, she studied international accounting. She has read tons of professional English books, most of which are original compositions. It was also said by her that she was one of the first group of students who passed the CET4 and CET6. The more you deal with her, the more you admire her. She has overcome CPA long time ago. Though she did not teach some courses for a long time, she did not forget the relevant knowledge. I frequently came to her and asked many questions. She always answered my questions easily. When I learnt the consolidated accounts and turned to her, she could work out the answer within a short time.
All in all, professor Zhang treats students very well and I do not know how to repay her. Next semester, I will often ask her questions regardless of accounting, auditing or financial cost management. She is like a cyclopedia who knows everything about accounting. I had never met such an excellent teacher before. Therefore I can definitely say those who are taught by her are the happiest! In order to repay her, I resolve to learn CPA well and pass the exam!
This noon I finally had a lunch with Zhujing and Zhichao and we had a pleasant chat. In the evening I enjoyed the hot pot with my friends. In the past I have been too busy to date with them, so now I have to date with them one by one. It is a happiness as well as a suffering. I feel tough because many of my friends will ask me when to have a dinner with them and I have no idea how to put the priority on the list. At that moment, I could not help complaining about the awful testing system in our school that made us have the finals so late. My happiness means that I still have a large circle of friends, though among which there are true friends as well as fair-weather friends.
I have been enlightened on such a common wisdom that client is client while friend is friend, though I still do not go out to work. Of course, when you touch your client frequently, you two may become good friends, but you should keep in mind that never treat a client as a friend easily, or you will suffer a great loss sooner or later. With the number of people I am touching increasing, I have seemingly cultivated an intuition that who will be the true friends and who are not. Sometimes both my friend and I know something clearly, but we will not talk about it in front of each other. There is a good Chinese saying for valentines that “Good to know and good to leave”. It is the same with those who stand by the same interest with you. When both of us lose the unique value to each other, we may depart forever. The society is sometimes so realistic that it is a good thing to see it through as early as possible. Sometimes we should help others in the way you do not like. Sometimes I am reluctant to help those who are arrogant and say no thanks to me after the thing is done. But I still help them for they are my good friends’ friends! It is inevitable to suffer some sort of loss for the sake of our good friends. After all, it is very difficult for us to come across a good friend! Aha!
Today Zhang Kai phoned me and asked me whether I could have a buffet with him next Monday. He had several free tickets for a canteen and wanted to invite me and some other friends to enjoy. I instantly rejected his invitation for I have eaten so many buffets these days and feel a little disgusted! Now I have to adjust my stomach. Tomorrow I will go to Dongguang to visit Xiaotao, one of my best friends. Meantime, I want to go out to another city to relax myself! Here I am wishing myself to have a smooth and gleeful trip tomorrow! Aha!
