Room Draw

Room draw is just around the corner.
Everyday during dinner, I see people gathering around the notice board looking at the Mock Room Draw thingy.
Discussing among friends which floor to conquer, and cursing the competitors in the process.

E Block seems to relive its previous glory as the most wanted block, especially E7. (But I think GH is catching up fast.)
Now that, half the floor is opened for girls, competition is really getting 白热化.
I heard people are confronting each other to settle the issue.
But none has done as extreme as the one currently holding the Presidential Suite.

Haha.
I guess I used to be one of them.
But not anymore...

Still, what I observed is that different block seems to attract different pool of people.
And because of that, my personal opinion is that people just have to be wise in choosing their block.
If you cant take noise, have some sense and don't choose a block which is popular as being the most-happening-block.

The law of natural of selection had taught us to change ourselves to fit the environment, and not change the surrounding to fit our need.
Remember... 入乡随俗

Happy Room Drawing!!
I shall see if I have the time to come down to feel the atmosphere of room draw for one last time.

People looking at the Mock Room Draw, KE7 Hall room plan
People looking at the ranking of their Room Draw Points
Just kidding =)

A story to share

皮鞋的典故
很久很久以前,人类都还赤着双脚走路。有一位国王到某个偏远的乡间旅行,因为路面崎岖不平,有很多碎石头,刺得他的脚又痛又麻。回到王宫后,他下了一道命令,要将国内的所有道路都铺上一层牛皮。他认为这样做,不只是为自己,还可造福他的人民,让大家走路时不再受刺痛之苦。但即使杀尽国内所有的牛,也筹措不到足够的皮革,而所花费的金钱、动用的人力,更不知凡几。虽然根本做不到,甚至还相当愚蠢,但因为是国王的命令,大家也只能摇头叹息。

一位聪明的仆人大胆向国王提出建言:「国王啊!为什么您要劳师动众,牺牲那么多头牛,花费那么多金钱呢?您何不只用两小片牛皮包住您的脚呢?」国王听了很惊讶,但也当下领悟,于是立刻收回成命,改采这个建议。据说,这就是「皮鞋」的由来。

想改变世界,很难;要改变自己,则较为容易。与其改变全世界,不如先改变自己-「将自己的双脚包起来」。改变自己的某些观念和作法,以抵御外来的侵袭。当自己改变后,眼中的世界自然也就跟着改变了。如果你希望看到世界改变,那么第一个必须改变的就是自己。
