再加一篇写给UC Berkeley的Essay。。。写一个experience的。。。

In front of me,the way forked one trail extending directly to my terminal along a country road,the other winding into a forest. A rare chance to touch the green, I thought. Aftera brief scruple, I surrendered to my innate passion for nature and went intothe forest.

The forest was charming.Cypresses consumed the ultramarine sky with a blanket of deep green, soft sunlightpenetrating thick leaves, casting a long yet dim shadow of the trunks on theground, meanwhile oranging the nameless weeds and flowers permeating hearteningfragrance. Honeybees hurried around, pollinating; sparrows called out inenjoyment, hunting each other in and out of sight; multi-colored butterflies wheeledaround, enticing me forward. Squatting down, I picked strawberries, hulled andchewed them, swirling the fresh juice around in my mouth and the sweetnessaround in my mind. Satisfied, I stood up and went on, feeling as if I was wanderingin fantasy.

Suddenly, I hearda slight yet clear creak from the brushwood. Seconds later, a squirrel jumpedout across the muddy path, pausing halfway, eyeing me curiously. Since I had neverseen wild animals closely, the squirrel sparked my interest and I began to runpurposefully in pursuit. However, I did not catch up with it finally: the squirrelleapt through the brush swiftly, while I doddered among numerous lurking traps,which broadened the gap between me and my quarry until it totally disappearedfrom my eyesight. Downright disappointed, I stopped running, pantingshort-windedly. Worse, when I recovered a little and tried to recognize the surroundings,I found myself on an unexpected path. I went astray.www.liuxue.la

‘Is anybody here?’My words hung in the forest. No response except the echoes mirrored back. Body slappedby chilly wind and mind by doomful blank, I was no longer the master of my legswhich swung back and forward automatically, trying to flee out of the maze. Thenight impending, I walked in a purgatory of increasing horror. What would happento me in the dark? Fierce wolves? Ghostly

Terrified by my own ominous thoughts, I accelerated my speed, striding aheadfretfully, jogging forward, stumbled and struggling for balance, then sprintinghysterically until out of breath. Irrationality only makes things worse. Itold myself to stop before running out of strength. Finding a meadow, I laydown and began to contemplate a well-rounded plan. Asmy heart calmed down, gradually from the west, some noise, like the rattle of tailboard and cough ofpowerful engine, whispered to my ears. I could feel my adrenalinelevel rising. Getting up, body feeble, I trod forward laboriously to thatdirection, my sneakers caked with brown mud, feet picking a slow careful routeto the hope. The next minutes wore on like hours, my body paying price for theprevious waste of power, my mind seesawing between doubting my last straw was justa hallucination and confirming myself the exit was not far away. However whenI, for the twelfth time, turned around a corner, I felt totally relieved: infront of me was the familiar country road, cleansed by thin, pale moonlight, onwhich dozens of cars roared past.

After that, everythingaround me went on as it had always gone on. Regular schooling, drudginghomework, I had never got the chance to try that path again. But that adventureremains fresh for me: the attractive green, the tasty fruit, the animatesquirrel, and even the plight I encountered will be forever inscribed as aspecial life feeling in my mind, a vivid piece in my colorful recollections—becausefor a child possessing only a routine life, it is the light gaiety, indeed withthe dark risk as well, that colors the blank mediocrity.
