Writing Exercise 288 - IS 1000RMB OF LIVING EXPENSES PER MONTH ENOUGH FOR A UNIVERSITY STUDENT? (PART 1) Recently, a video has triggered an ongoing public discussion. In the video, a university student complained of her father providing her only 1000RMB ($155) of living expenses per month and said,‘It is not enough living in a first-tier city.’ Is 1000RMB of living expenses per month enough for a university student? I think that is enough! Firstly, students still depend on their parents, who must try their best to give what they have to their children. They should appreciate what their parents provide. Secondly, students should learn how to make ends meet. Thirdly, students' job is to study hard in universities rather than enjoy their retired-like lives on campus. Last but not least, university students are adults. They can earn spending money by doing a part-time job to get what they want.

I think it is enough! Firstly, students still depend on their parents, who must try their best to give what they have to their children. They should appreciate what their parents provide. (this doesn't support the idea that 1000 is enough to live on) Secondly, students should learn how to make ends meet. Thirdly, a student's job is to study hard at university rather than enjoy their retired-like lives on campus. Last but not least, university students are adults. They can earn spending money by doing a part-time job to get what they want.
Maybe there are two different questions here. Is 1000 enough for students to live on? Is 1000 the maximum a parent can be expected to give. When I was in Changchun it was so cold I didn't want to go out so I lived on 1-2000 per month.
