"Then stop having your head in the clouds, we are evolved birds and no gulls can dive deeper than us, no birds can get more fish than a penguin".

Understanding English with scarce knowledge of the language was like banging my head against a brick wall. I always wished to master this language but my school friends used to think that I had got my head in the clouds. Years have passed since then, since the first time I looked an old English book with colourful and funny pictures inside, wishing to be capable of reading it. I have made enormous effort to make my wish come true. Besides, it has taken me a lot of courage to take a trip to England on my own and immerse myself in the real English environment and culture. But I would dare say it has all been worth it. Now, I feel confident to say that I have not only learned the language, but I have also achieved my Masters degree in English Literature. This has proved to my school friends that I have an old head on my young shoulders. As a result, they have also started improving their English. More importantly, they have learned a more significant lesson, that nothing is too difficult to be achieved in this world if you are enough determined.

I found this problem when I try to teach my father about computer. Although I graduated in Major of Information Technology, it cannot help to break arguing with him.

Anyway I know he is confusing. That's why I start to teach him from the first step. Sometime I want to bang my head against a brick wall. I'm tired every time I teach him something new. However I love my father so much. I just have boring sometime but I do not give up to teach me again and again.

I definitely have an old head on young shoulders. It was quite obvious since I was five: I used to reproduce what I heard as I lived with very old and wise grandparents. Nothing was as enjoyable back then as watching nonsensical cartoons with angry men banging their heads against brick walls because they were fooled by smart, cheeky two-legged rabbits. My grandparents and their complete lack of rabbit-like cunning schemes made me what I am: a young girl who's got her head in the clouds and enjoys it enormously!
