One day, when I was six years old, my aunt cane to see us form Shanghai. My parents and brother happened to be out then.It was late in the afternoon. The room was a little dark. My aunt felt tired. I asked her to sit down and have a rest. "When are your daddy and mummy, my dear?" asked Aunt. "
They have gone shopping and will be back in an hour. I‘ll fetch a cup of tea for you, aunty." When I went into the kitchen, a good idea came into my mind: After a ling journey my aunt must be very hungry. I‘ll give her a cup of milk instead of a cup of tea. When I opened the cupboard. I saw a bottle of ‘milk‘ powder in it. I poured a cup of the ‘milk‘ and gave it to my aunt. " Thank you very much. It‘s very kind of you," she said. " Please taste the milk. Has it enough sugar?" My aunt took a sip of the ‘milk‘ and spilt it out at once. " What is it, Ranran?" she asked in surprise. " It‘s milk," I said loudly and proudly. " But it doesn‘t taste like milk. Where did you get it?" I took Aunt into the kitchen and showed the bottle to her. Oh, it turned out to be a bottle of washing powder!
In the evening my parents came back. When they heard what I did, my mother said to me with a smile, " You are great. You have learned to entertain guests without us."Several years have passed. NNow I am a middle school student. Every time my parents repeat the story, we have a good laugh over it.family

Currently, we could hardly live a single day without seeing a celebrity spokesperson promoting a product or a social campaign on TV, net or other media. This is an intensely popular trend that we cannot fail to notice.
There is no doubt that the celebrity spokespeople could boost the sale of a prduct. A host of celebrity spokespersons, however, have emerged as the marketing tool of some companies, even companies producing and selling fake and inferior items. This kind of behavior has produced negative impacts on consumers and whole society, which should be severely criticized and penalized. Of course, as is known to all, everything has both bright and dark sides. Some starss endorsement of social activities and public campaigns raises public awareness, giving rise to changes in public behavior. In this case, they serve as positive role models of the general public. To name only one case: Pu CX, a household figure, acting as the celebrity spokesman of the China AIDS Foundation, contributes greatly to the cause of AIDS prevention and cure in China.
When it comes to November 11, what’s on your mind? Well, as to the old generations, it’s only an ordinary day; however,the young generations will consider it as the Singles’ Day as well as the on-line shopping carnival. In fact, on November 11th, 20xx, Tmall and Taobao(the biggest Chinese online shopping platform) has sold out more than 35 billion Yuan goods, this data has astonished the media at home and abroad.Apparently, people have more interests on cyber shopping than spend the night with their single friends. Some home media even suggest that November 11thshould be the Chinese on-line shopping carnival.
In 2009, Jack Ma, the CEO of Tmall andTaobao, had coined the term “Double Eleven”, aimed to encourage the single people to do something to celebrate their own festival. Instead of datinglovers, people go on-line shopping to relive the loneliness. According to the survey, China had 564 million Internet users at the end of last year and 180 million single people. And the single people are the main force of the China’s spending power. The debut was a great success. Then “11.11” has an unusual meaning, which stands for on-line shopping carnival.
Comparing with the traditional shopping,the cyber shopping has more distinguish features, which quite fit the young generations’ taste. People do not need to go outside, just click their mouse, the goods will be home. The best part is you can do it anywhere, anytime. All you need is acredit card. What we can predict in the future is that on-line shopping is not going to fade away, instead, it will boost like the mushrooms after springrains.

As soon as remembers that night, I then “threw” smile came out ......
That day, night very quiet, moon is dusky, the star babies are afraid as if very much, walks arm in arm in the cloud paternal grandmothers bosom, is not willing to come out the small face dew. Outside the window, blows several cool winds. This kind terrorist “the clever piece scene” as if is the God already prepares well. In the peaceful family, I closely shrank a group, looked around toward in every direction, “bang ~” any sound, I looked toward the window, “mother! The ghost has come!”I am unable to restrain to yell that sees only one “the demons and monsters” positively “to dance with joy” walks to me.
Naivete I run up to the balcony hastily, brought “Jin Kubang”, fits out Sun Wukongs appearance, “dull, the monster, eats my stick!”Wants to hit toward the monster, as soon as calms oneself down looked, is unexpectedly hangs on windows pigs feet, really lets me not know whether to laugh or cry ......
Also remembered at that time, I have done a very weak matter, before sleeping, I used the colored wax pencil to draw the lifelike big tiger on the paper, but also very happily pasted it in the gate, this only then felt at ease goes to sleep, because I believed that had the big tiger to protect me, everybody did not dare to bully me!
First time alone still let me in homes scene have a vivid memory, because that was I first time has learned the independence, was also I one step which succeeded on the rough growth path!
Students mental health has been playing an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life. Indeed, it is widely accepted that it has gained growing popularity among persons in all walks of life. There is a general discussion today about the issue of disorder in brains。
Obviously, it is necessary that effective actions should be taken to prevent problems. Authorities in universities play a critical role in the situation. To begin with, schools, such as colleges or universities, can provide chances for the young men to ease their attention. Whats more, some are physically strong, but psychological problems are able to bring potential threats. Teaches may have a chance to find them in advance. Besides, specialists in this field are to be required to make full preparation for cases in time. Facing the crisis, experts can deal with it in a professional way, which means they have more or better opportunities to save us than others.
From the factors mentioned above, we may safely draw the conclusion that we can free ourselves from mental illness by taking certain precautions. For example, if you have pains or puzzles in mind, finding a friend to express these is a good way to release pressure. Certainly, there is little doubt that further attention will be paid to the issue。
In peoples daily life, there are various recreational activity apart from studying or working ranging from Karaoke or dancing to computer games or sports games.
Such activities are beneficial as well as harmlul to us if undertaken inappropriately. On one hand, recreational activity can help us to not only build our body and mind but also improve our communication and understanding with friends because most of these activities are done with others. On the other hand, if we spend too much time on singing, dancing or other games, we might fail toconcentrate on our duties such as studying our working, which inturn amay lead to further consequences.
The growing tendency among college students to get all kinds of certificates has now evolved into a craze. Just randomly ask a student what he or she is busily engaged in doing, quite possibly, you would get the answer that he or she is preparing for a certificate of some kind. So, whys the craze? The reason behind this phenomenon is common — the enormous pressure of finding a job. Faced with a harsh job market, most students have no choice but to seek more certificates to parlay their qualifications. Another factor is that diploma and certificates still weighs heavily in terms of signifying ones ability. For the sake of increasing their odds of landing a better job, the students are compelled to run from one exam to another.
Though I have an open mind toward the craze on certificates, I suggest that students should be more rational when it comes to certificates, since they do not necessarily tell their ability. Instead, they should be more involved in learning and capability boosting, thus, opportunities would come quite naturally.

I dont know what to tell you girls to do. mr. martin has told you everything you ought to do, and now i must give you some donts.there are three things which come to my mind which i consider ecellent advice:
First, girls, dont smoke -- that is, dont smoke to ecess. i am seventy-three and a half years old, and have been smoking seventy-three of them. but i never smoke to ecess -- that is, i smoke in moderation, only one cigar at a time.
Second, dont drink -- that is, dont drink to ecess.Third, dont marry -- i mean, to ecess.
Honesty is the best policy. that is an old proverb; but you dont want ever to forget it in your journey through life.
Different people have different ambitions. When children study at school, they already have their own ideals. Stone want to be engineers or doctors in the future. Others want to be artists or businessmen. Still others want to be teachers or lawyers. But few want to be farmers.
Unlike most people, I choose to be a farmer in the future and make contributions to development of agriculture. Agriculture is essential to the national economy and the peoples livelihood. Without it there wont be grains on which people survive. Nevertheless, farmers are ignored, even looked down upon by urban people. I determine to challenge the traditional idea and contribute to changing this situation.
However, lt is not easy to he a modern farmer in the 21st century. A modern farmer must be equipped with a variety of knowledge such as chemlstry, biology and meteorology. Therefore, I must study conscientiously from now on so that I can get the chance to study as a postgraduate in an agricultural university.
I believe only a man with scientific knowledge can meet the challenge of the 21st century and assume the task of modernizing agriculture.
The university opening ceremonythe deeply impressing feelings are as much a part of me now as they were a year ago.
As the day to register and become a freshman in FDU approached,excitementincreased.Beingauniversitystudent meant I was finally coming of age. Soon I would be on my own,making my own decisions and doing what I wanted without someone looking over my shoulder.
Despite months of anticipation, nothing could have prepared me for the impact of the actual day.Among thousands of new comers sitting on the broad lawn in front of the famous XiangHui Auditorium, listening to the speeches by the principal and student representatives, I felt myself consumed by a rush of both joy and nervousness. What would college be like? Would the other students like me? And what about the workwould I be able to keep up? Being a student in high school seemed to offer little assurance of my being able to survive college, especially in FDU which is abundant of excellent counterparts. Panic set in.It had been nice being respected as a senior by the underclass students for the past year;I didn＇t quite enjoy the idea of being on the bottom rung of the ladder again.I was not assured whether I wanted to grow up after all.
As if in a daze, I rose up with my new classmates around to show respect to the school song which was to be performed. As the solemn music flowed, I knew that I was hearing not just a song but the foot step of a brand new life. Exciting as the prospeet of a new life seemed, it wasn＇t quite easy saying goodbye to the old onethe familiar faces, the familiar routine. I would eyen miss those days when fully engaged in preparing for the college entrance exams though they were so tiring and the long commute between home and school that took me several hours each week. Good or bad, it was that I knew.
This September, I was one of the volunteers to welcome the new comers and guide them around the campus. I found the familiar mixed feelings shown on their faces. I needn＇t have worried about if I would like FDU, since my year here has turned out to be one of the best years of my life. Although going back to those days is impossible, it＇s comforting to know I can revisit my special memories any time.

Men fear death, as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children, is increased with tales, so is the other. certainly, the contemplation of death, as the wages of sin, and passage to another world, is holy and religious; but the fear of it, as a tribute due unto nature, is weak. yet in religious meditations, there is sometimes miture of vanity, and of superstition. you shall read, in some of the friars鈥?books of mortification, that a man should think with himself, what the pain is, if he have but his finger鈥檚 end pressed, or tortured, and thereby imagine, what the pains of death are, when the whole body is corrupted, and dissolved; when many times death passeth, with less pain than the torture of a limb; for the most vital parts, are not the quickest of sense. and by him that spake only as a philosopher, and natural man, it was well said, pompa mortis magis terret, quam mors ipsa. groans, and convulsions, and a discolored face, and friends weeping, and blacks, and obsequies, and the like, show death terrible.
It is worthy the observing, that there is no passion in the mind of man, so weak, but it mates, and masters, the fear of death; and therefore, death is no such terrible enemy, when a man hath so many attendants about him, that can win the combat of him. revenge triumphs over death; love slights it; honor aspireth to it; grief flieth to it; fear preoccupateth it; nay, we read, after otho the emperor had slain himself, pity (which is the tenderest of affections) provoked many to die, out of mere compassion to their sovereign, and as the truest sort of followers. nay, seneca adds niceness and satiety: cogita quamdiu eadem feceris; mori velle, non tantum fortis aut miser, sed etiam fastidiosus potest. a man would die, though he were neither valiant, nor miserable, only upon a weariness to do the same thing so oft, over and over. it is no less worthy, to observe, how little alteration in good spirits, the approaches of death make; for they appear to be the same men, till the last instant. augustus caesar died in a compliment; livia, conjugii nostri memor, vive et vale. tiberius in dissimulation; as tacitus saith of him, jam tiberium vires et corpus, non dissimulatio, deserebant. vespasian in a jest, sitting upon the stool; ut puto deus fio. galba with a sentence; feri, si e re sit populi romani; holding forth his neck. septimius severus in despatch; adeste si quid mihi restat agendum. and the like. certainly the stoics bestowed too much cost upon death, and by their great preparations, made it appear more fearful. better saith he qui finem vitae etremum inter munera ponat naturae.
It is as natural to die, as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful, as the other. he that dies in an earnest pursuit, is like one that is wounded in hot blood; who, for the time, scarce feels the hurt; and therefore a mind fied, and bent upon somewhat that is good, doth avert the dolors of death. but, above all, believe it, the sweetest canticle is, nunc dimittis; when a man hath obtained worthy ends, and epectations. death hath this also; that it openeth the gate to good fame, and etinguisheth envy. 鈥擡tinctus amabitur idem.
There are many arguments about the advantages and disadvantages of eamination.some people think eamination is the only best way to test how eaminees have mastered what they have studied and it is the only measurement for eaminers to select which persons they need.while, on the other hand,some object that eamination cant measure how the students have really studied.they say it can do nothing but burden the students.
As for me,i think for both eaminers and eaminees,the eamination can show what and how much the eaminees have mastered.the results of eaminations are just like mirrors for both eaminers and eaminees.
Through eamination the eaminees can check their work and get aware of which aspects they have not done well,so that theyll make much improvement in their work.as far as eaminees are concerned,they can not only know how they have studied but also find out what they still unknown or what they havent mastered well.thus,they will be inspired to greater efforts to improve their studying method so as to make greater progress.of course too many eaminations are burbens to both eaminers and eaminees.
In sum,the eamination does more good than harm for both eaminers and eaminees.we must take a correct attitude towards eamination.we should take full advantage of it and avoid its disadvantage.
Today is New Year, I wish my wish, very not easy to get this joyful holiday to come. New Years day, is our country folk ceremonious, the most lively a traditional holiday.

The snake is a long and thin animal that lives in grass or other dark places.
A snake has no legs or feet, but it can move very fast on its stomach.
Snakes usually have green, yellow or black skins, which make them difficult for their enemies to find them.
Some kinds of snakes live in water. They can swim as freely as fish.
Snakes are cold-blooded animals. In winter they hibernatein holes which are narrow enough only to hold the snakes bodies. The snakes can sleep through a whole winter without eating and moving. They can not feel any pain. The hibernation period lasts about five months. When spring comes, the snakes come out and begin their normal life.
Snakes can take many things as food, such as mice, sparrows, frogs,birds eggs, pests and so on. People sometimes can see a snake eat a sparrow. First it moves close to the sparrow, then it puts out its tongue and brings the sparrow into its mouth and swallows it, which makes a lump in the snakes body. After some time the lump disappears.
As snakes are dreadful-looking, people are afraid of them. Many people drive them away whenever they see snakes. But in Chinese fairy tales, snakes are by no means bad. They seem to have human feelings. They can change into pretty girls. People like and respect them. The most well-known is the story about the White Snake and the Blue Snake.
In fact, snakes are not as dreadful as they look. They can help us to kill mice and pests. They can provide us with delicious meat. Their blood is a good drink. Poisonous snakes are especially useful. We can make valuable drugs with them.
