理发

今天早上背单词,一个叫 strop 的家伙引起了我的注意: 中译:滑车带;带索;环索;磨刀皮带; 英译: a piece of leather used for keeping the blade of a razor sharp a short rope or piece of leather tied in a way that forms a ring, used for lifting heavy things Macmillan 词典显示非常用词,但是磨刀皮带这个解释,还是勾起了我对童年的回忆。剃头师傅在一条黑亮的皮带上打磨手中的剃刀,像一幅遥远的黑白GIF动画,浮现在脑海,为什么柔软的皮革可以克制坚硬的刃口?

单词叫我如何说爱你

If you really want to learn, and learn more quickly and deeply, pay attention to how you pay attention. Think about how you think. Learn how you learn. ——题记,全文转载自扇贝博客 直到今天我一直可以清晰地回想起自己当年背GRE单词时所受的种种折磨,常常有一种在发疯和崩溃边缘的感觉,我的精神告诉我需要继续下去,可是大脑却告诉我应该放弃这件无聊低效痛苦的事情。现在每每想起来总是觉得心有余悸,同时也会思考一个问题,为什么学单词这么痛苦?为什么学单词效率就这么低?我们在不知不觉中掌握了数以万记的方块汉字和词组,可以在玩游戏的时候记住几百个技能和上千个小技巧,可以记住N多衣服化妆品的牌子,和他们价格质量的对比,可是我们记住几千个单词却常常要花几个月甚至几年的时间,最后常常效果不佳气馁而终,是不是? 背一本单词书,一学期了终于从A list背到C的list里,有没有? 打开单词书的第一页,第一个词是什么?是abandon,是放弃,有没有?

不要再怅然若失的空想未来会怎么样,只是要自己不放弃,总能找到一条活路的。 痛苦、压抑,又有什么用,除了摧毁自己的健康。 光阴流逝得比以往任何时候都快,虽然内心孤独,却也难得的清净。 决定调整一下自己读书的方向,读完《红太阳是怎样升起的》和《毛泽东专政始末》之后,潜心半年只读英文,书虫、床头灯,和以下四部我大概知道情节的原版小说:
