There is a big discussion among the Chinese community regarding a young fellow who committed suicide while he is serving in Afghanistan as an infantryman. According to the news, he had been expressing himself being assaulted, discriminated and harassed in the military. As one of the Chinese, first I feel very sorry of his death, but I would like to say more that people have to be very strong as a human being while they are in a foreign country or in a battlefield. I don’t remember how many times I was insulted being a Chinese, especially a broken-English-speaking Chinese; however, it is my choice to stay in this country. I have to learn how to deal with this insult! In fact, only few people in this country are real American, why those insulters are so proud of themselves? From my point of view, they are all egocentric! I am quite sure those people who insult other ethic group also love to insult whoever they don’t like regardless they are or are not from other country. They just love to criticize and develop a habit to belittlement and not appreciate for the nature. That’s why we have WAR in the world!
Based on the HIPPA law, I deleted my 2 most recently posts. I read an article and noticed that people have gotten trouble from venting their feelings in the internet even without mentioning the name of their patients. I shared the article with my colleague, we all flaked out because most of us love to express our experiences, joys or anger in the facebook and don’t realize that there are management people from the facilities are watching what we are saying online!
I agreed with the risk and deleted my posts; however, it won’t stop me from writing though! I don’t know who have been watching my blog, but I believe some of my friends are watching it periodically. The man that I mentioned in the deleted posts still alive. I met him in other facilities and both of us were so happy to see each other, thanks God! Does God wants to show me that the outcome might be positive sometimes if our lives are controlling by somebody else? I am enlightened through his survival.
Years ago in 2006, I made a long-term goal to become a Nurse Practitioner before 2012, 40 years old (please review “revision of thinking activities 1.2-1.4 &1.6″). Now I fulfill my goal on time become an Adult/Gerontologly Nurse Practitioner. I have been excited since 6/2/2011, my graduation day from Master Degree. Now, I calm down and feel a little lose again. What should I do next? I have to make up a new long-term goal as soon as possible before my energy completely shut down! In order to keep up my spirit, here I am! I think my first step is to keep on writing something to remind myself.
I am glad that I created this blog which give me a platform to keep a record of the memorandum of events. Thanks for Steve and Professorm from LaGuardia Community College!

Please write two paragraphs about the importance of this belief to your life.
I believe in all men will have certain extent of betrayal to their wives or girl friends when they approach their age of 40-50. There is a lot of evidences show that couples usually having trouble to their marriage during that middle age period. Just in my instant family, I already have four examples to support my belief, my father, two of my brother-in-laws, and my father-in-law are all looking for other women after 40 years old. I have also heard from many of my girlfriends talk about how their partners betray them, no matter how they love each other when they were young. Those women that I know are all good mother or housewives. They respect their husband, teach their children, and fulfill the duty as a wife. Some of them maintain a good appearance although some of them don't. The only or main reason that I can explain is all men are afraid of losing their power in sexual aspect. Since their old partners unable to provide the new excitement to them, they tend to look for the different figures to stimulate their sexual drive.
Men are incompetent to refuse the temptation of other women, especially the middle age men. First of all, men usually look much younger than their wives when their ages are close to each other. Some men even feel uncomfortable to introduce his wife to his new female friends if their wives look older than them. Some men like lying to other people say that they have not married yet when their wives are not with him in order to give themselves more chances to develop a intimate relationship with the new target. Their behavior seems contagious. I want to testify this believe because my husband is 40 years old now and I truely feel the subtle change of his behavior such as losing memory, some erection problem and become less interest in sex. I want to know what cause his change. I don't want to terminate my marriage as easier as other couples just because of the problem of misunderstanding to our physical changes.
