Don’t judge a person by the cover

wise

For this Monday, I would like to share a true story with all of you. This post is about a boy whom I used to tutor. I will call him “Richard” to keep him anonymous.

Richard is a family friend and I’ve known him all my life. I am nine years older than him, and I am also friends with his older brother. Due to our big gap in age, I have actually seen him crawl around his house in diapers.

When he was around 8, I started tutoring him because his mother had asked. Although he was only in Grade 3, Richard was already struggling a lot in school. He was diagnosed with a learning disorder as well as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). He couldn’t sit still nor pay attention in class.

It was very, very, VERY difficult to tutor Richard. We would literally read a paragraph together and I would ask him, “Okay, what is this paragraph about?”

He would reply, “I don’t know. I don’t remember.”

I was so frustrated, “HELLO!!? We just read it like less than a minute ago! How can you forget everything so fast?” Continue reading “Don’t judge a person by the cover”

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 39.

To my dear readers,

Sorry for the wait. I slacked and then I caught a cold, so I am actually two days behind my normal schedule. Nonetheless, I hope you like this chapter. It took me so long. This chapter was very backwards again. Therefore, after translating, I have to put it together in a way that makes sense. It’s almost like playing a jigsaw puzzle.

It is tough to be a translator. I aim to get 10000 views a week. With 40000 views a month, I get about $20 from ads (because half of my readers use adblock). WordPress does not pay me until I hit $100. This means, maybe after 5 months later, I will get some money. Haha. How sad is that? (very sad). I mean, if I translate faster, maybe I can get paid in 4 months…but I don’t have enough willpower. *Sigh*

Anyhow, this is my promoted post: Time and Financial Freedom

Chapter 39     Shen Tui Men

But honestly, this man’s reaction time was many times better than Xuan Luo’s. As Xuan Luo was swiftly approaching with his tai chi steps, the man had already made a move.

Although Xuan Luo was fast, the man’s reaction was dashing. Within a blink of an eye, the man had already pulled out his blade; ready for combat.

Seeing Hu Zi and thinking about Hu Zi’s dead mother, Xuan Luo had decided the death sentence for the man early on. His current abilities may be weaker than the man; however, he still had his hidden card -nei li.

Although Xuan Luo did not purposely practice nei li while he was working with Tian Yu Zi, his nei li still increased while he was in the process of practicing the tai chi fist. The nei li in his core continued to quietly increase even when he didn’t focus on it.

Xuan Luo had already achieved the border of ‘success’. He only had a thin layer to break through, and he shall get there. Once he breaks through this layer, he will see a huge boost in his strength.

There were four levels in total: small success, junior, success, and peak. Each level was very difficult to achieve. The higher up you go, the more difficult it gets. Practicing will no longer be enough to go through the level. The secret to the top required one to seek, comprehend, and feel.

Xuan Luo rushed full on; directly aiming his punch at the man; not holding back the slightest bit. Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 39.”
