Dear International Students,
On behalf of the Students’ Union, I am writing this E-mail to extend my heartfelt welcome to you, and we are all feeling delighted to share the wonderful college life with you in the following two years.
In order to help you fit into this brand-new life more quickly, here are some useful suggestions and tips: First and forest, living in a Chinese-language environment, you’d better take certain courses to improve your communication skills and get a better understanding of Chinese cultures. In addition, our canteen not only provides the Chinese dishes, but also offers traditional western foods, such as steak, hamburgers, fish and chips, and so forth. Thus, you can choose any food as you wish. Last but not least, every student is supposed to comply with the college rules, which you may look up on our website.
Enclosed with this E-mail are a campus map and a brief introduction of our university, which I hope are beneficial for you.
Our warmest welcome to you again and look forward to your arrival.

As is apparently revealed in the cartoon above, there is a glass on the ground with half of the water in it spilling. The pessimist cries over it, deeming that it is all screwed up, while the optimist cheers for it because there is still a half left. Obviously, they have different perceptions and feelings toward the same incident in life.
The underlying meaning of the drawing is to remind us of the importance of optimism. With an optimistic attitude toward life, people living in the dark shade tend to face the harsh reality bravely and thus achieve a happy and healthy state of mind, because they always adhere to the belief that where there is shadow, there is sunshine. In contrast, if people always feel anxious and pessimistic about the setback and frustration in life, they can by no means enjoy a comfortable and happy life.
There is no denying that, most optimists have a high happiness index, which can hardly be acquired by pessimists. Therefore, we must read our life with a positive attitude. What’s more, the optimistic attitude can infect others strongly, which suggests us to follow an optimistic attitude towards friends around us and they, in turn, will behave likewise. Therefore, let’s keep the famous line of Shelley, the well-known poet, in mind forever: “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
