When you underestimate something because you are already used to it, and you thought you are going to remember it foreverrr..Does it ring a bell to you? Well, it does to me.
I had my nth Chinese quiz yesterday, and I was hoping that I could get a perfect score (after a few times of slipping up.It's a decent dream, right?). By the way,I prepared for the quiz the night before and I came across a few familiar characters, which I have known since my first Chinese course. So...I ignored them (not that I totally overlooked them, but I didn't practice writing them as much). I was assured that I remembered every stroke correctly ..
What happened then?Thanks to my confidence that I forgot writing one of the so-called familiar characters during my quiz yesterday. And what did it imply?Good bye to my perfect score, again. Waa..It's been a long time since I saw my laoshi wrote 'Henhao'. Hahaha.
Moral of the story?Never ever thought you know well about something, or else you will really end up remembering them for the rest of your life.
