According to Newton's First Law of Motion, an object in motion tends to stay in motion in the same direction unless an external force acts upon it. This theory can be applied to illustrate my real life experience.Before I came to the United States, I lived in Hong Kong.There I studied in the high school, getting my compulsory high school education. At those times, attending school was nothing more than my daily routine. I did not pay any attention to what was going on in the classroom. Sometimes I even slept during the lectures, or entertained myself playing with my classmates. Now I see that I was lazy and immature, I didn't have any educational and professional goals. I just did not understand the main purposes of attending school. As a result I did not manage to pass the public high school exam, and thus could not advance to the upper level. This fact was one of the main motivations for my parents to move to the U.S, as they wanted me and my siblings have a better academic environment, to get decent education. Since then, my parents' dedication and the new environment of learning have changed the direction of my life dramatically.The first thing I understood after moving to the U.S was the extent, to which my parents loved me, and cared about me, and the extent to which their decisions influenced me. Before I moved to the USA, I always thought that my parent did not care about me. They were always busy with their work. When we moved to the United States, all the misunderstandings were
finally dispelled; I realized that my parents sacrificed a lot for me.
