Life in Melbourne is so relax and enjoyable that I have never thought before. Since Australia is a multicultural society with different races and ethnic groups, there are lots of worldwide and multicultural events held in city every weekend. I like volunteering in these meaningful events during weekends, since I can not only build my social network and develop personal skills, but also it is a great way for me to give back the community and help the needy. Apart from volunteering, the relaxed and desirable lifestyle makes me feel enjoyable to study in Melbourne. A relaxed lifestyle does not mean that people here are lazy and not working, instead they “work hard, play hard”. They work hard for weekdays and play hard during weekends. This culture strongly influences me in many perspectives, and now I believe that enjoying university life as well as studying hard is important and should be well balanced.
Some people might say Melbourne is a boring city and there is nothing to do besides going to school. However, this does not happen to me and I do think that my university, University of Melbourne, as well as City Council have established many youth programs and also provided lots of opportunities to inspire students and develop our personal skills. By getting involved more in these programs and student societies, I enrich my university life and meet many awesome friends from different countries. It can no doubt prevent me from feeling bored.
Life is to be enjoyed. I have been here in Melbourne for one and half year. Time flies especially when I am having fun and enjoying life. Yet I still remember the time when I was planning which university to study in Australia and which foundation is the best to apply. I would really like to take this opportunity to say thank to my education consultant Denise Chu for providing lots of universities information and helping me to solve out housing issues before I came to Melbourne.
