Impression on Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken"

            My friends often ask me the same questions: "Why do you prefer going to Canada for a bachelor degree since you are already a sophomore in China? Haven't you found it a waste of time?" At that moment, I really do not know what I should reply. How can you explain to others before sufficiently persuading yourself? However, after reading this poem, I believe the answer has become clearer we can not choose both roads. In other words, no one can escape from making choices, probably because we are human-beings.
             As a matter of fact, many students in my country intend to finish their undergraduate programs, although they are not very interested in them. On the one hand, there are a lot of realistic factors related to job-hunting, which we have to consider primarily; on the other hand, due to the education system we are required to declare our majors before enrolling in a university, and as well we are not permitted to change majors or departments. Thus under those circumstances, not a few students, like me, feel regret for what we are learning currently. But compared with them, I am lucky for I have the financial support from my parents, admission to Saint Mary's University, and I have been granted a one-year visa.
             Going back to this poem, one thing that echoes to me is the line "I doubted if I should ever come back." But one thing I know is that I don't want to return to China at the halfway point. Nevertheless, I still doubt whether I can adapt to Canadian life style; and I am uncertain whether I can manage my studies in Saint Mary's University; also, there is the question whether I will achieve a better future in my career after graduation. .
             Furthermore, I cannot stop asking myself is it really good fortune for me to come to Canada? No one knows, perhaps. It is only if we drink the wine that we can tell its flavor. Let us take Frost as an example. In front of the "two roads diverged in a yellow wood", he "took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
