Choose Life

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?

Learning Chinese

By the way, I started learning Chinese some months ago, bought some books, took some lessons and finally had the idea to look on the Internet for some resources.

And I found an absolutely fantastic podcast called ChinesePod.com, there you can download free daily podcasts and, if you want to go further, pay your subscription to get access to other resources like transcripts or exercises.

They have 4 different difficulty levels (newbie, elementary, intermediate, and advanced) and the podcasts are meant to address everyday life and business in China in a very practical way.

If you are learning Chinese or have ever planned to do so, just give it a try: ChinesePod.com
