Knickers in a twist: Americano in China (1/2)

Friday 21 September 2012, 12.30am HKT

WE make wrong choices now and move on in the hope that the experience should help us make better decisions later. The axiom falls apart if the wrong choice should lead to results that are very hard to fix.


A guy from the USA recently has been asking around about the ins and outs of continuing his studies abroad:—

“Anyways, I’m about to complete my undergraduate studies here at the University of [Somewhere] … I got accepted to a school in … the Beijing Normal University, with a scholarship for the next four years. I’m planning to major in International Relations. Should I go?”
Mr Chicken Chowmein Fajita

Mr CC Fajita (obviously not his real name) is half-Chinese/half-Latino or something, knows enough Chinese, and seems to have nothing tying him down in the States — his mother has passed away and father lives in another country. He says he’s not an excellent student but better than average, and admits he’s “a big procrastinator.”

Should he go or just stay put in the USA?
