as is well known, books teach us to learn life, truth, science and many other useful things. they increase our knowledge, broaden our minds and strengthen our character. in other words,
they are our good teachers and wise friends. this is the reason why our parents always encourage us to read more books. reading is a good thing, but we must pay great attention to the choice of books. it is true that we can derive benefits from good books. however, bad books will do us more harm than good.

it was the third day of our winter holiday. today, there are many business in my mother’s company. so my mother told me to help my uncle who is the manager of my mother’s company. i sat in my mother’s office and help her answer the telephone. while i was free, i was writing my homework. although i also have a lot of time to do my homework, i still do it. because in my mother’s office, i had nothing to do. if i did nothing, i was wasting my time and my life. i can’t do the foolish thing. we should take good use of our time.

today i found time was a cruel thing. whatever man is, time always goes on. it won’t stay to wait for somebody. you can’t use anything to exchange time. time is also a fair thing. although you have a lot of money or you enjoy high reputation, time won’t leave them more. today i found i hadn’t enough time. although i have more than a-month holiday, but i found i had a lot of things to do. i had a lot of homework to do and i am essential to complete the homework as soon as i have time.
4、a model student
do you mind being called a bad student? of course not. so far as i know, everybody intends to be (become) a model student.
however, to be a model student is by no means an easy thing. first, he must do his best to obtain knowledge. a man without sufficient knowledge will not succeed. secondly, he must remember to improve his health. only a strong man can do great tasks. thirdly, he should receive moral education. if his conduct is not good, no one will consider making friends with him.

i have rested for a week. i began to feel bored. so i went out with my friends. they are my best friends in the middle school. we didn’t go to someplace special. we just saw the other. we had lunch together. while we were having lunch, we were still talking about the new school and new friends. yes! a year later, we have grown riper. and we learned much more things and got new life. we haven’t enough time to play, to waste and to lose the way. we only have two years. two years to go, we will get the real life which belongs to us.
