These two cartoons show two contrasting scenes. While the male student spends all his time and money playing Internet games, the female student studies diligently. One could easily argue that a bright future awaits the students who study hard, while those who waste tuition playing games have little to look forward to. The above images encourage students to value their time in school and take advantage of educational opportunities.
While students dream of being accepted into college for years, they often become lost once admitted. Without their parents' constant support and advice, or because of limited communication with teachers, many students are unable to focus on their future goals. Such confusion leads some to forget their studies and resort to playing on the Internet, among other forms of recreation. Students should not only keep their ambitions in mind, but also seriously strive towards them. Without a clear purpose, one might easily waste crucial years neglecting one's studies.
Constantly playing on the Internet leads to failure, while continuously studying guarantees success . Students need to appreciate their time in school, and work hard in order to ensure a good future.
经过多年的梦寐以求终于跨进大学门槛的学生，却往往迷失了自己。因为没有了父母常在身边的支持和建议，或是缺乏与老师的沟通，很多学生找不到自己未来的奋斗目标。而这种困惑就使得一些学生扔掉书本，靠各种消遣 —— 包括玩网络游戏 —— 来打发时光。大学生不应只空谈理想，应该认真地为之奋斗，而没有明确的目标则会让一个人在度过他至关紧要的几年后头脑空空。
