Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Quick: Imagine the coolest person you can think of. What do they do? How do they act? What is it about them that makes them so cool? Is this person someone you know? Or is it a musician you admire or an actor you think is very talented? Whoever this person is, you could also describe them as fly. If someone is fly, they are awesome in every way. They dress well, do amazing things, and have an all-around attitude of coolness.

I can not be a fly man. Because I am eating a lot. I can’t move a lot in a day. I use my car for everything. For this reason, I am not fit.

I can’t get the meaning of the word “fly” with Chinese exactly.  I guess it may not be “a fly”, isn’t it? I don’t know.


I did not aware the importance of  healthy when I was young until someday , I got a heavy cold lasted half a month which made me depressed , powerless, uninterested doing anything.  When I got refreshed from that illness at last , it suddenly occurred to me that the healthy turned to be so beautiful .


So, I began to do something to stay healthy. I like sports. So, I go to work by foot every work day. I play table tennis in free time.



Then, I began to reduce the amount of dinner and early to bed. Besides, I read some books as possible as I can. It also is a way to consume excess energy through learning with brain.
