    CAREER CHOICES - Follow your passion or follow your ability?
    (the topic was once discussed on SEPTEMBER 22, 2016)

    Making a career choice is more than just landing a job. It is a decision that has a huge impact on our lifestyle and the way we achieve our lifetime goals. But how can we decide on a career path when our academic performance suggests an option but we desire otherwise?
    Imagine you make it through four years of college and get your degree; you graduate and get a job in a related field. But years later, you realize it was actually a mistake. What you are doing is not what you actually want to do. You feel bad having to get up each day and go to a job you do not like.
    That scenario is not rare. For many people, it may take years or more to find out what they are good at, and sometimes, their skills and abilities may not equal their interests and passions. That is one reason why many college students change their major halfway through college, and many never do the jobs related to their majors after graduation.
    The fact is that you cannot be successful at something you are not interested in, but if you have no special skill in something you are passionate about, you can be discouraged; your passion can be drained, and it can be another dilemma.

    BURNING JOSS PAPER

    A large number of Vietnamese people believe in the spiritual world. And burning joss paper, which relates to their beliefs, has been a traditional custom of Vietnamese people since centuries ago. In religious sacred rites, or on some special occasions like lunar new year, the Kitchen Gods day, etc., we can see lots of people burning some votive paper on the sidewalks, or even on their balconies. They believe that is the way to deliver the offerings to the gods or their ancestors, to show their gratefulness and pray for health, luck, prosperity and so forth. However, there are some following thought-provoking questions about this activity, which are worthy of a discussion:
     
    1. What do you know about this traditional custom? And do you believe in the connections between burning joss paper and the spiritual world?
    2. Nowadays, with the development of technology, votive products are more and more diversified, like fake 100$ bills, or some other paper products such as iPhone 12 Pro Max, Maybach S600, mansions, and so on. Can you share your opinions about that?
    3. What are the pros and cons of burning joss paper?
    4. Some professionals said that we should give this custom up, while some others said we should remain it. What is your perspective?
