Do you agree with the idea that children should be raised by their grandparents? Why yes/no?

We live in the 21 st century, a century of speed that under the development of technology had
caused changes in people’s lifestyle. People have become more and more busy and family life
has changed considerably. Because of these changes more and more children are brought up
by their grandsparents. Parents forget a bout the importance of the environment, children are
brought up in , their education and the fact that parental love and care is indispensable for a
child.
In my opinion children shouldn’t be raised by grandparents on their own.
First of all, if a child is raised only by his grandparents, he will miss parents love and care.
Although a child loves his parents and his grandparents too, these are two different feelings.
For example we can consider parents that go abroud for work. These parents think that money
and material things can replace their love. These children usually become isolated or start
having bad attitudes, they have bad marks, leave school, some of them even tried to comitt
siucide.
Moreover, grandparents might not be able to educate a child properly. Grandparents are
sometimes too tolerant , they spoil them too much and are overprotective. The results of the
fact that they are not authoritative enough can be seen when the child will grow up , he will be
bad and rebellions and will consider that he deserves everything.
Last but not least even if grandparents have enough time to look after a child , they might not
have enough patience or they are not physically strong enough. In theese cases , children
aren’t involved in healthy activities , such as playing in the park or being read bed time
stories.
However , in some special cases , if parents die or the child is abandoned , grandparents
should raised them.
In conclusion , besides of the busy life parents have nowadays , they shouldn’t let their
children be raised only by their grandparents , they should raise them together and never
forget that a child needs parental love and care.

Speak about the things you do to have a healthy life. Give arguments and examples to sustain
your ideas.

We live in the 21 st century, a century of speed that has caused dramatic changes in people’s
lifestyle turning it into an unhealthy one. The main majority of the people , because of the
world in which we live, have adopted unhealthy and dangerous customs beginning with their
eating habits ending up to the way in which they spend their free time.
I had always tried to avoid such unhealthy habits , in order to mentain a healthy life as much
as possible .
First of all , I avoid eating unhealthy food. Because everybody is always in a big hurry and
because they forget about the importance of what a meal should contain and how you should
eat it, most of the peolpe eat junk food and drink soda every day. I considered that this fact is
dangerous for my body so I concentrated myself on some important things. I always take care
that my meal has enough proteins and vitamins and try to avoid sugar, salt and fats, that can
be mainly found in junk food. I take into my attention that a meal request time , at least 20

1
minutes for each meal and that you have to eat slowly . A very important thing that people
forget is that it is not healthy to eat only once or twice a day , big and heavy meals , you
should eat more times a day , smaler quantities of food. Instead of eating a big sandwich from
a fast food or chips , I prefer eating a big fresh salad with some tomatoes and cheese or a
fruit , avoiding fats and salt , replacing them with vitamins.
Secondly , I do sports. Nowadays we are used to travel by car or bus eaven on short distances
and spend most of our time in front of the computer.
We forget that we have to do some sports. I personaly love swimming, so everytime I can I go
for a swim , or when I have to go somewhere and I would arrive too eaqrly to my destination
if I took a bus , I take a walk. I realise that it is very important to combine your everyday
program with some healthy activities such as doing sports.
Last but not least, another healthy thing that I do is trying to spend my free time in nature.
Cities are a poluted and noisy place, that causes you stress. So, at the end of the week
together with my friends we go away from the city, for some fresh air and for a little piece and
quiet. There we relax ourselves and we forget about the stress of the city. Spending a part of
your free time is better than losing nights in clubs and it has a possitive effect on people’s
mind and soul making them more calm and relaxed.
In conclusion , althought we can’t live a perfect healthy life, we can at least try to have some
healthy customs avoiding the unhealthy one’s.

Speak about the impact of music on your life.

Music has always played an important role in each persons life. Besides the fact that music is
an art, it was always seen as a way of getting relaxed or as an source of entertainment.
Seaking about myself , music has become a necesity in my life.
First of all , music is a very good source of relaxation. Nowadays life has become more and
more stressinly , so people search for different ways of disconnecting themselves from the
cotidian problems . The method that has succes in my case is listening to music. At the end of
the day , after a heavy tst or a great effort I listen to some calm music or to my favorite one.
In this time, I forget about my problems and get the chance to recharge my bateries.
Secondly , music makes me get in a good mood, becoming a more calm and optimistic person.
For example , when I am upset or angry only a piece of my favorite music makes me happy
and I instantly forget the reason of my anger or sadness. Another example would be listening
to musoic in the morning making me feel fresh and optimistic that that day is going to be a
perfect one..
Last but not least , music has an important role at each party. How is a party like without
music? Music at such events brings up people together, they socialize , have fun and dance.
Another reason why music is important in my life, is the fact that help me remind events from
the past. I usually asociate events with a certain song, so after years when I hear that song
again I automaticaly rememorate that event.
In conclusion , music has a great impact in my life , not only because it is a way of relaxation ,
it also made me a more calm and optimistic person. For me has became an instrument of
keeping memories and one that always reminds me about the beauty of life.

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of being your own boss. Give arguments and
examples to support your ideas.

2
In our days, in the field of work, there exist two categories of people , those who are
employees of a company and freelancers , people that work on their own and are there own
boss.
Although the ideea of being your own boss may sound atractive, being a freelancer has
besides it’s advantages, disavantages too.
On one hand it offers you some advantages . First , you have more independence , you don’t
have a boss that tells you what to do or what you shouldn’t do. You are now your own boss,
the one that has the absolute power of decision. Secondly you have total freedom of
organising your time . This can be a great help in family life, you can look after your children,
you can help them with homework . In this case you have more time for yourself and for
solving personal problems. If you were employed , you couldn’t go and solve these problems
in the time you wewrw at work, you were obligated to take a day or two off, losing some of
your vacation days.
Another important thing is that you are no longer forced to go to work when you are ill or
caught a flu.You can stay in bed and recover. If you are employed , you are either obliged to
go to work, so you will recover ion a longer period of time either to take a sick leave vacation
and then you lose a part of your salary.
The third advantage would be that you decide the amont of work , in oder to earn more
money than if you were employed . If an employee has to work from eight to ten hours per
day in order to gain a certain amount of money , a freelancer doesn’t have to work that much.

On the other hand besides the big advantages, there exist also disadvantages that can’t be
forgetten. First would be the fact that you have to look for work on your own. This might
cause you a feeling of insecurity because you never know for sure for how much time you will
find what to work.
Secondly , another disadvantage is that all the responsibility is on your shoulders, if you make
a mistake , it is only your fault.
Third, sometimes you have to work longer hours then an employee, in order to finish a project
in time. This may cause a disorganised life because you have periods when you work a lot and
days when you don’t. In some cases it is better to be a worker in a company because you
have a certain schedule that makes your life more organised.
In conclusion , although there exist both advantages and disadvantages of being an employee
or being your own boss, when you decide on which part of the workers you want to be , you
must take them into consideration.

Comment on the following statement: Where there;s a will there’s a way . Bring arguments
and examples tosustain your ideas.

This statement refers to a very simple fact in each persons life. ”If you really want something ,
you will secced in having that certain thing “. This also refers to the mechanism of wanting
and having what you wish.
On one hand the majority of people have wills that motivate them todo something that is use
full or necessary in their lifes. Considering children and teenagers, most of them want to finish
a high school and university , because they think that without a proper education they cannot
succed in life , althought school is compulsory after certain stage. But not all youngsters
manage to finish a school or a university. This is only because they didn’t wanted to or they
weren’t convinsed about the necessity of education .
On the other hand there exist wills that cannot become true only if they are realistic. Some
people that are not happy and satisfied with their work place want to become succesful
business-men, to earn a lot of money. They consider opening a business, but not all of them
succed either because of the lack of motivation the business plan is not a realistic one.
Another categorY of wills are those that go hand in hand with luck. For example , I would like

3
to win a milion dolars with a lotery ticket. In this case, selfmotivation cannot be spotted, I only
need to buy the ticket and luck in order to win.
In conclusion , although not all wills can be carried out in a possitive way, the most important
thing is to know what you want in order to achieve.

grew up in a small town and then moved to a big city, so I have experienced the good and bad
sides of both. I never thought that I would like living in a big city, but I was wrong. After ten
years of living in one, I can't imagine ever living in a small town again.
Small towns and big cities both have some problems in terms of transportation. In a small
town, you have to own a car to ensure a comfortable living .you can't get around without one
because there isn't any kind of public transportation. Big cities generally have heavy traffic and
expensive parking, but there you have a choice of taking public transportation. It's not free,
but it's often cheaper than driving when you consider gas and time, especially if you don't
have a car, you're better off in the city.
I love the excitement of big cities. Small towns have a slow pace. Large cities mean you have
to adapt to a variety of situations, like finding a new route to work or trvine a new restaurant.
I enjoy that challenge very much. Another part of the excitement of city living is the variety of
cultural activities available. There is a wild assortment of theatre music and dance
performances available in big cities. These things are rare in small ones.
The final thing I think about large cities is the diversity of the people. the United States is
made up of people of different races, religions, abilities, and interests. However, you seldom
find such a variety of people in a small town. I think that living in an area where everyone was
just like me would quickly become boring.
Of course, security is a concern, and that one area where small towns are superior to big
cities. Still, I would rather be a bit more cautions and live a large city than to feel secure but
bored.

live in a very beautiful town, placed at the shore of the Black Sea. You can find almost
everything in my town: leisure centres, malls, supermarkets, resorts, cinemas, huge parks,
clubs, pubs, rinks, theaters etc. At a glance, it looks like a perfect place to live in. And it is. It's
difficult to think of something that I would change. We have an wonderful mayor, who is loved
by everybody. Well, by almost everybody... because, last year, he did a very serious mistake:
he didn't reejct teh aide of some bussinessmen to deforest an important area from the nearby
park, allowing a supermall to be built. The dwellers therefore were very upset by this decision,
and protests took place. The trees whici were condemn to fell, were inscribed with texts as "I
am the tree no.150, and I will die soon". It was terrible sad to watch that. Now a serious part
of the park who it used to be so lively and beautiful, have been chopped, being replaced with
parking lots and the mall itself. I decided neither to visit, nor to buy antthing from that mall,
as a form of protest, or a boycott. Therefore, if there is something that I would really like to
change in my beautiful town, would be that mall, who I d like vanished

Some people enjoy their modern life and can not imagine that they can live in an older life.
While others believe that the living in the past would be more suitable for them. As for me, for
sure i will choose to live in the past ,twenty years ago in my chidhood, and in my primary

4
school. I have three reasons to proof my choice, and they are ;sent back to that time, I would
restor my old memories, have no resposibilities, live with my late grandfather.

There is no doubt that, the childhood is the age of the beautiful innocence. What a kid have
deeply in his heart is clearly expressed on his face. So that I would not have to hide my real
emotions. Moreover I would have the right to laugh or to cry at any time and in any place. In
additon to , i would have all my sweet memories with my first experiences. There is also the
old friends i shared with them alot of unforgetable days . Also, i was more linked to my
parents and my brothers as i was spending much more time with them .

Furthermore, in that time, i would not have to think about resposibilities or remember any
duties. that means i would not have my daily routine that i am living now . Besides i would not
have to worry about the money and my expenses. In fact i would think only in joy and having
fun with my peers.In another words ,i would be relaxed and forget the stress life . Inspite of,
when we were younger, we were always wishing to become older,but when you grow up, you
will know that , it was your best days.

Also if i have the chance to do that, I could live with my grandfather. Because of his kindness I
loved him alot. Not only he was my grandfather but also he was my best friend. As he learned
me alot and gave me my first lessons in the life. Moreover i cann't forget till now our early
trips and going to fishing in the sunny days. For all that i wish he could be with me all my life
,indeed, we was the warm corner in my life.

In a nut shell, going back to the past is a very good idea. May be some people prefer their
modern life with all its advatages for them. However, in my opinion, would benefit more from
the earlier life .Because that was all my sweet days , lack of responsibilities and duties and
finally living with my lovely grandfather.

The talisman under the shape of a cat eye, inherited by my mum from my grandmother had
something strange that attracted me from the first time I saw it. Why it attracted me? I can’t
explain that but I felt like every tiny part of my body was full of heat. Even I was conquered
by heat. Then I thought it is a simple coincidence but the curiosity to discover if it is a magic
talisman made me hold it once again in my hand. Fantastic! The experience was repeating.
And from then, every time when I’m covered in pessimism, I take the talisman and hold it in
my hand and the feeling goes away. From what my mum told me, I understood that the
talisman was found at a crossroad where, with very long time ago, the women with
supernatural powers were burn, being declared as witches. There is the possibility that this
talisman should have belonged to one of the witches. Now I wonder and ask myself: “How is
possible that this talisman was not burned?” Should it be a captive force inside the talisman?
My skin shivers only when I think of this. And, it’s mine…

The way we dress is a 'tell, tell' sign about our personality; having said this, body language as
well as our appearance all coincide together. All three are very important elements in which
tells others a little about us. If a person is wearing jean and a tee shirt, this tells us they are
laid back and maybe not looking to get into anything today. On the other hand, if we see some
one in a three piece suit, this tell us the person is going to work and maybe they may have an
important job some where.
If we see a gir dressed skimpy, than this tells us she easy and a free willed person.
Long hair on men use to mean they were pot heads.

This is very true! i would say it is a good thing but not for all of us. especially not for children
who forget to do anything else then to play pc games. but not only the children spend a lot of
time in front of the pc playing games, even grown up people do this. in rest pc and the
internet are very helpful. It would be a very hard life without this two components of our life.
What is a big problem is that children become more and more addicted of pc and internet and
we should expect that in the future we won’t see anymore children outside playing together.
But let’s hope that the world will not change so much and in the near future we will still see
children playing with balls or other games, but not in front of the pc.
Before I met the internet and the pc it all was so simple, but now I can’t imagine my life
without them. And I don’t think that it’s a bad thing because they make my life easier and I’m
not addicted of them wich is the most important thing. Internet really is the greatest
invention. But the parents who buy pc’s to their children should be very careful at them and
they should make them a program, not too long, when they can stay in front of their pc and
play.
Another not so good thing is that since the internet appeared books and newspapers tragically
became less and less used. The authors have a very hard time trying to sale their creations,
and children started to forget about reading old but good books. And of course if you would
ask a child who plays a lot on the pc, about a very famous but old author he won’t know
anything about him unless he studied him at school. This I must say it is a very bad thing and
it’s growing, just like the internet but in the other way

compassionate, also emotional, feels more with the heart rather than thinks with the mind if a

very methodical, loves to learn how things work, thinks more rather than relying on his

emotions for answers, but is aware of the role and sometimes uses them for re-inforcement of
conclusions, and my best friend since 5+ years.

3. another guy - changing from sad, depressed, and negative to something else in a religious
sense, philosophical, analytical, emotional, bases decisions on feelings, funny in a grotesque
sense, uses charisma to advantage, meaning can be fake when needed or give a false face,
searching for meaning in life, mellow, and a close friend of 4+ years.

4. one more guy - emotional, yet once cooled off, realizes and analyzes self and other's
actions, afraid of being backstabbed or attacked in a coversive way, paranoid of others
negative actions and repercusions towards him, very methodical, practical, work-a-holic,
horny, yet faithful, puts a good attitude toward everything, but often can seem a false person,
stubburn, like to control situation, and a friend of over a year that I sometimes wish would
just chill out, relax, and not be so needy or bossy, then we could be closer.

5. a used to be ex-best guy friend - what happened you ask? military and marriage, moved
away and we don't spend as much time together. we grew up together and spent a lot of
childhood days hanging out and discovering the world, sharing everything together, the best
and worst of times. we still talk but not as often, things changed.

In order to persuade or deceive, a person deliberately breaks one of the four conversational

* Quantity: Information given will be full (as per expected by the listener) and without

I strongly believe that movies and television have a great influence in people's behaviour. It is
an undeniable fact that most people in the world have access to either a televison or a cinema
theatre and do make use of them at a regular basis.Some of the ways in which such media
can affect people are stated below.

Firstly, The main group of people who are attracted to the television and movies are the the
teenagers.This is the group that is most susceptible to change.They often try to emulate what
they see on screen and in order to be a hero themselves.It is not uncommon to see young
people try to mimic the stunts and heroic deeds performed by their idols or role-models on
screens.Sometimes, this will have a deleterious effect as young people try to display some
violent and aggressive behaviour that they visualize in the screen.

Secondly, Each country or region has its own culture and it is necessary to preserve them in
order to exhibit cultural diversity to the future generations.There are a lot of programs and
scenes that are being broadcasted in televisions and movies that might not confirm to the
mindset of the local society.But sometimes young people get influenced by these scenes.They
get a false impression that they too should live their life the way people live in foreign
movies.They tend to change themseves according to what they see.This might destroy the
native practces and customs which is highly undesired.

These are some of the ways in which people's behaviour can be afftected by mass media such
as television and movies.So there is a need to look into this matter and to obtain a suitable
solutions to such problems.

Starting from an early age up to the end of our lives, every one dreams to become a famous
person. It's true that there is a lot of hard work, luck and amny responsibilities involved, but
still, it's impossible not to consider all the advantages that the celebrity enjoys.
Just imagine yourself in such a position.... everybody knows you , loves you and even
worships you ! You are in the eyes and heart of the media all the time, everybody is watching
you. Think about all those fan-clubs full of people eager to know everything about you, eager
to predict and comment on your actions. Every single statement you make is seen as a new
law, any style you may adopt projects you in the field of fashion settlers. Step by step you
have become a role model for them, Children wish to be like you when they grow up, teen-

my hand and the feeling goes away. From what my mum told me, I understood that the
talisman was found at a crossroad where, with very long time ago, the women with
supernatural powers were burn, being declared as witches. There is the possibility that this
talisman should have belonged to one of the witches. Now I wonder and ask myself: “How is
possible that this talisman was not burned?” Should it be a captive force inside the talisman?
My skin shivers only when I think of this. And, it’s mine…

It is said that sport is the way in which your body can be kept healthy and full of life. Making
sport not only puts your muscles in movement, but also releases yourself from a big quantity
of stress. It is good at least once a day to have time to do sport. It’s not neccessary to go to a
gym, you can just go for a ride with your bike or jogging. In this way you can make two things
at the same time and that is to combine useful things with pleasure.It’s not a shame to go to a
gym and have a few extra kilos.All can be solved through will and of course sport. Another
efficient method is a diet that must be respected. At the first sight you say “It’s too much to
handle”, but I can say „No” to you. How? Proper food is the key word. What does this mean?
The meal hours must be respected and the food must consist of vegetables and fruits because
these are rich in vitamins. In conclusion, if you want to be healthy, you have to eat properly
and none of the less make a little sport.

In all our life we meet persons which differ a lot from us. We can see this in their personality
and realize that they have been in a different world than us and they see life differently, either
nice or in a bad shape. We must take from them what is best and try to change their bad side.
I admire my English teacher because I always liked to see how others try to do their best in all
they do and try to give others a helping hand in the creation of the man that everyone wants
us to become. It is very nice to meet such people

can’t approve this! And I don’t think that these are improvements as long as they are
damaging the world. Improvement means better and the real improvements have just begun.
The cars will be in the near future electric wich I think it’s the best thing, because the old cars
but even some of the new ones do a lot of damage to the nature because of the gases. And
there are many other things that work with fosile fuel wich burns, and evacuates in the
atmosphere all kind of toxic gases. And all this gases, if there won’t be any major
improvements will soon destroy our precious earth.
Very soon I hope the world will be again a green planet, like it was before the industry
appeared, and the air we breathe will be truly clear.
I think the technological basis for improved standards of living is causes environmental
damage. Though damage is caused to the natural world because of corparations attempting to
fulfill demand the main threats are the stripping of rainforests and carbon footprints. We have
anlternative resources but we dont use them.
I think that the salience of carbon fuels and practices which damage the environment ase
caused by:

The drive for profits


The power of oil corporations
The ideologies generated by powerful corporations to suppress the calling for alternatives and
make people deny global warming.(who probably believe these theorys: they arent
conspirators)

So we could switch to alternatives but powerful influences are blocking and ignoring
alternatives(at there own expense in the future) because it would be a significant sacrifice for
them to change their practices.

I live in a very beautiful town, placed at the shore of the Black Sea. You can find almost
everything in my town: leisure centres, malls, supermarkets, resorts, cinemas, huge parks,
clubs, pubs, rinks, theaters etc. At a glance, it looks like a perfect place to live in. And it is. It's
difficult to think of something that I would change. We have an wonderful mayor, who is loved
by everybody. Well, by almost everybody... because, last year, he did a very serious mistake:
he didn't reejct teh aide of some bussinessmen to deforest an important area from the nearby
park, allowing a supermall to be built. The dwellers therefore were very upset by this decision,
and protests took place. The trees whici were condemn to fell, were inscribed with texts as "I
am the tree no.150, and I will die soon". It was terrible sad to watch that. Now a serious part
of the park who it used to be so lively and beautiful, have been chopped, being replaced with
parking lots and the mall itself. I decided neither to visit, nor to buy antthing from that mall,
as a form of protest, or a boycott. Therefore, if there is something that I would really like to
change in my beautiful town, would be that mall, who I d like vanished.

Many people spend all of their money when they earn it wastefully, but other like to save their
money for the future. In my opinion, It's good to enjoy a small amount of money when you
earn it and save a larger amount of money for the future.

When people earn money, they should use a small amount of it to do what they want. They
can spend money for entertainment, buy a small thing for themselves, go camping with their
friends, have a party with their family..... But they must to pay attention not to spend too
much.

In addition, doing what people want can help them relax absolutely, give them energy and
inspiration to do their job better. Try giving yourself a gift when you earn money, I'm sure that
it's very fun!

Otherwise, if you don't enjoy your money when you earn it, you will live a dull life. Your only
duty is go to work and earn money, so bored! It's good to budget money for necessities as
clothing, rent and for the fun things as vacations, parties, relaxation....

Moreover,with your earnings, if you are ill or lose your job,you will have money to manage
your life.When you are old and your children still go to school,you can pay school fees for
them. And you even lend your friends money when they are in trouble.People don't save
money for the future ,they could have problems.So you had better send your money to the
bank you believe in.

t's obviously right that all the students, would be very happy to get good grades so in my
opinions, it's very right for me to say grades encourage students to learn.

I recall my first English lesson was very intersting. When I was 13 years old, my father sent
me to an English class. I was the youngest pupil in the class. The teacher asked me to write
something about my hobbies, and I wrote about my dear cat, she gave me a good mark with
the comment that: "Your made a good essay, it is clear and lively" I was so happy and at that
moment, I thought that I was not bad at English, then naturely, English became my favourit
subject at school.

It was the story at the primary school, at present, teachersdo not give many marks in
University anymore. We only get final grades a semester, and that grade tells students how
good and how hard did they work last semester. Normally, all the students expect to get good
grades because with good grades they can have a good diploma after graduation, they can
apply for the higher programmes easier and further on, it is also useful to find a suitable job.

12
However, it is not only getting good grades which encourages students to learn. If a student
learnt hard just for getting a good grade he would never become an excellent student indeed.
It is important to learn to achieve good grades in the University but it is more important to
learn how to except the bad grades. In a letter written by Abraham Lincoln to the Headmaster
of a school in which his son was studying, he wrote" In school, teach him it is far more
honorable to fall than to cheat..... Teach to have faith in his own ideas, even if everyone tells
him he is wrong" So I think, becoming a good person is far more important than becoming
just a good grades collector.

Finally, as soon as being a student, in my point of view, good grades really help to encourage
student to learn, but to be successful in life, to be happy let learn and work with the sound of
your heart.

Whether grades could encourage students to learn has been argued for a while. There are
varity of arguments among students and teachers. It is a important topic because it concerns
with the method how we educate effectively our students. From my experience, I agree with
the idea that grades encourage students to learn.

It has been argued that marks could make some students stressful,
especially for the students with poor grades. However, as research on the education indicated
that grades could let students clearly understand their performance and let them know their
advantage and disadvantage. For example, without grades, how could students know what
talent they really have? Grades is the indicator of students' ability to master the knowledge.

Moreover, the teacher can clearly master the status of each student study through grades.
Every one had talent, but no one had all the talent. By grades, the teacher can understand ach
student's talent. For instance, some students may be good at logic thinking, such as
mathmatics, physics; the others may like atheletic, such as baseball, tennis. By grades, the
teacher can give different advice to different student.

Furthermore, only through grades can parents understand how their child's performance in the
study. For example, when I had a poor performance in some courses, my parents always
helped me figure out the reason and help me go through it. Each time I went through this
difficulty, I had more confidence on my study.

In conclusion, grades can encourge students to learn. It can help students realize their talents
and find out their disadvantages. Without grades, how could a student clearly understand
themselves?

Some people enjoy their modern life and can not imagine that they can live in an older life.
While others believe that the living in the past would be more suitable for them. As for me, for
sure i will choose to live in the past ,twenty years ago in my chidhood, and in my primary
school. I have three reasons to proof my choice, and they are ;sent back to that time, I would
restor my old memories, have no resposibilities, live with my late grandfather.

There is no doubt that, the childhood is the age of the beautiful innocence. What a kid have
deeply in his heart is clearly expressed on his face. So that I would not have to hide my real
emotions. Moreover I would have the right to laugh or to cry at any time and in any place. In
additon to , i would have all my sweet memories with my first experiences. There is also the
old friends i shared with them alot of unforgetable days . Also, i was more linked to my
parents and my brothers as i was spending much more time with them .

Furthermore, in that time, i would not have to think about resposibilities or remember any

13
duties. that means i would not have my daily routine that i am living now . Besides i would not
have to worry about the money and my expenses. In fact i would think only in joy and having
fun with my peers.In another words ,i would be relaxed and forget the stress life . Inspite of,
when we were younger, we were always wishing to become older,but when you grow up, you
will know that , it was your best days.

Also if i have the chance to do that, I could live with my grandfather. Because of his kindness I
loved him alot. Not only he was my grandfather but also he was my best friend. As he learned
me alot and gave me my first lessons in the life. Moreover i cann't forget till now our early
trips and going to fishing in the sunny days. For all that i wish he could be with me all my life
,indeed, we was the warm corner in my life.

In a nut shell, going back to the past is a very good idea. May be some people prefer their
modern life with all its advatages for them. However, in my opinion, would benefit more from
the earlier life .Because that was all my sweet days , lack of responsibilities and duties and
finally living with my lovely grandfather.

If have the chance to visit a foreign country, for sure, i'll choose to visit United States of
America. Actually that was my dream since fifteen years. Really, thet would be the most
beautiful journey in my life. I have three reasons to proof my choice, and they are; big
country, diffrent cultures, and meeting many all varieties of people.

Firstly, U.S.A is the biggest and the most civilized in the world. Also, it has the many big cities,
such as, Newyork and Washington. Certainly, I would like alot to live in such big and crowded
cities that has a huge number of people. Moreover, in States you can feel the smell of the old
history in its museums and some old buildings. Simultaneously, you can find also the latest
technology and the highrest levels of modernization.

. You may have your lunch in Italian resturant while take your dinner in Indian food court.
Furthermore, every state has its own differnt laws and legislations. While you are move from
state to another, you feel that you are in different country not in different state.

Thirdly, you can meet many varieties of peoples. Despite the large number of nationalities and
religions, all of them live peacefulliy with each other. Besides, you can see there all colors such
as Nigros, Asians and Caucasians. In addition to, tha larege number of mosques and churches.
In fact, you can see an amazing style of creative interaction between all these kinds of people
there.

May be, some of people are not intrested in visiting foreign countries. In contrast, I am lookin
forward to see every place in this huge world. In a nutshell, the united States gives you all the
fruits of the world in one nice koktail. Since, it is the only country that have big area, huge
population and different civilizations.

“True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of
adversity, before it is entitled to the appellation.”
George Washington

In all that talking with the teen-agers from all over the world, the most frequent thing is
friendship. In our days we assist very often at negative forms of friendship manifestation, from
the most exteriorized ways to the most expressed in vulgarly language.
Friendship is a human characteristic, fact visible even by Aristotle (even before Epicurus), who

14
presumed that “nobody can live without friends, even if he/she has all the fortunes in the
whole world.”
Friendship is also a manifestation form of self knowledge, a capacity of the human being to
refer him self on others. Of course, the human kind must look at themselves, inside and
outside, like in a mirror, not in one deceptive kind of way, but who reflects correctly his
personality, without misrepresenting it, one way or another, underneath one appearance or
another...
True friendship is based on mutual confidence and spirit of sacrifice. It’s distinguished by
devotion and by respecting the given word.
Those are the most common tips of how to be a true friend: treat your friends the way you
want to be treated... keep secrets that are told to you... pay attention when your friend is
talking with you... keep your promises... share things with your friend, don’t be a selfish
person... always tell your friend the true... and stick up for your friend.
August the 3rd is the International Friendship Day for most of the nations in the world, time to
recognize your friends and their contribution to your life. Friendship helps to bring peace and
positivism to the globe. Friends come in many shapes, size and guises: school friends, work
colleagues, siblings, partners, neighbors. Pull out all the stops and let your friend know they
are truly appreciated.
Strong friendships may be the most important stress-fighter you have. Socializing has proven
health benefits, so spend time with your friends.
In the dictionary, friend noun is:
1. a person whom one knows, like and trust
2. a person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; comrade
3. one who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group
4. an acquaintance
The dictionary makes one small omission too. it doesn’t speaks of the years that a friendship
endures, the laughter that fills the air when friends are together, the support, understanding
and comfort a friend can offer or the anguish you cannot escape from when a friend is dying.
The dictionary, I'm afraid, cannot begin to define the word: friend.
So then what is this magic called Friendship? Is there a magic wand that silently transforms
you and those special people on a journey into, what sometimes can be a lifelong relationship?
Is it mutual admiration, common interests, the need to be a friend? Or is it just an enduring
tie that bonds you together, allows you to almost think as one and gives you one of life’s
greatest joys.
Friendships are precious jewels. Treat them as such.
Enjoy them!
Celebrate them!
And never take them for granted.

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. Friendship is one mind
in two bodies.”

Nowadays we can choose one means of transportation from many kinds of tools, such as
buses, trains, ships and planes. However, my favorite one is just by train. Whenever I want to
go outside for a travel, my beloved choice is going by train.
There’re two main reasons why I choose the train. First, traveling by train offers me a valuable
chance to encounter new friends. During the long way to the destination, I have enough time
to talk with strangers sitting beside me. It will add a piece of joyful memory to my trip.
Second, traveling by train is also a cheaper choice when compared with other means of
transportation. As a student, it is especially proper for me to travel by train because I can buy
a ticket suitable for students, only half price of a normal ticket. In this way, traveling by train
can help me save much money.
In conclusion, traveling by train may not only make me have a happy chat with other people
but also help me save a lot of money. Therefore, I’d like to travel by train instead of other
means of transportation.

How To Lead A Healthy Life

If you could become healthier in an instant, without the dread of having to give up all the
temptations and desires that seemingly have prevented you from actively participating in
healthy living, would you choose to be more healthy or less?

The most common stumbling blocks for people who want to be more healthy, yet have had
difficulty making such a decision "stick" for the long term, often are misunderstood sticky
points that carry much more weight than deserved. Despite common beliefs, becoming
healthier does not mean giving up all the things you love, living without sinful flavors, being
bored, or turning life's routine into a chore.

You are one hundred percent capable of taking part in healthy living, and can proactively seek
it, debunking the myths and giant hair-ball of misinformation that has plagued the internet,
adding to droves of innocent, good intentioned individuals constantly seeking improvement
and who want to feel better. You are in control and have been gifted with the one thing needed
to achieve such a healthy, idealistic outcome. You possess it now.

That gift is the freedom to decide IF you want to be healthier or less healthy. I'm afraid too
many folks, often with the hidden agenda of lining their pockets with your misdirection, have
convinced and conditioned you that to become healthy is a complicated task. The fact is it's
not. If you have the smidgen of will power it takes to answer just, one little question, a yes or
no decision at that, you have what it takes to be healthier. You decide which you want. Choose
to be healthier and I'll give you the roads map how to get there.

The even better news is that this is not rocket science. Once you make the decision to feel
better and be better, simple tweaks in your lifestyle is all it takes to get on the cumulative, self
replicating path that continues to reward you the longer you stay on it. And the even better
news is that it does get easier.

Specifically, the journey of 1000 miles begins with just one step. Thus, if you have to convince
or motivate yourself to stick to it, one day at a time. Then do that. Before you know it, a week
will have passed. Then two weeks. And then the magic occurs. At 21 days all those little tiny
steps have transformed themselves into what your brain now defines as a habit, literally.
You've broken through your brain's resistance to change, and it now knows what you've been
doing for the last 20 days is part of the "norm". And from the point on, what you did those 20
previous days just got a whole lot easier, because you don't have to convince your brain that
that's what you gotta do (it already knows).

How to lead a healthy life: eight vital components of living healthy to focus on.

Now, allow me to remove one of the mental obstacles for most wanting to live healthy, but
unsure exactly how to get there. In other words, as crystal clearly as I can state this, just do
this.

I've eliminated your need to think about how to do it anymore.

Simply apply small positive changes. Tiny steps in the right direction add up to big steps in the
right direction. Remember, if you want to change the world, you don't have to solve world
hunger overnight - just one decision, one person can impact the entire world. Imagine, what
YOU can do, just for yourself.

Decide now to improve just a little bit. Having a healthy life can be narrowed down to handful
of key components. Focus on these foundational factors, and track your noticeable
improvements. Adjust what doesn't work and make it better.

True happiness lies in the psychic, or inner divine. Going to that centre and living the outer
human life from there will fill us with felicity. One can make an experiment for that purpose. I
shall start with an analogy.
A work exists at several levels of skills, talents, capacities, endowments, accomplishment,
from the low crude completion of utility to highly professional execution of a graceful act. At
two ends, if these extremes exist, we find ourselves at some middle level. Placed as you are at
your middle level, if you acquire the endowment of any higher level, LIFE can take you sooner
or later to that level. Mother can take you to that high level at once.
A collector's work can be done by a rank promoted officer with care and responsibility; a
secretary of the department at an advanced stage to complete his term as collector may come
down for a short period as a collector and his execution of the collector's chores will be that of
a mature, seasoned, experienced administrator with grace, speed and dexterity. When a writer
of a text book comes down from his professional pedestal and teaches at a primary level, the
teaching will be full of pith and substance, profound, enthralling. But neither the collector nor
the professor can do at his post of duty more than what the post permits. The post has its own
limitations by its level. Experienced persons can raise the quality of their performance very
high, not the content. The collector cannot exercise higher powers than his post permits. The
professor cannot teach in PUC what he can teach at the level of M.A. As the collector's post
has limited powers, the PUC class, even at its best, has limited scope of receptivity.
While you are at a lower job, if you can acquire the dexterity of a higher level job, life quickly
move you to the level to which your skill belongs.

By learning to treat ordinary events as events of great felicity, you will move to a life position
where all events begin to yield high felicity, making all life one of eternal joy.
To look at ourselves, our daily actions, our inmost feelings, especially our motivations from
this point of view, we can at once know what we should do. If we bring a willingness to make
that change or changes, life can turn from one of dull neutrality to one of intense joy.
Take the most ordinary negative event like a wordy quarrel at home. It is easy to see how by
being good-mannered this can be avoided. As a next step take an ordinary positive event like
serving meals. By an effort of expansive goodness bordering on generosity of selfless emotion,
it is easy to see how this flat moment can be made into an occasion of rich interchange,
intense human sentiments. Supposing we succeed here, it will soon be evident that with rich
inner fullness, we lack the outer skill of polite manners and find it difficult to express the inner
good in an outer act of goodness. The importance of that psychological skill will be self-
evident. Pursuing the argument further, we can easily discover the values of talents for being
genuinely pleasant to another. Capacity to be happy, capacity to express that happiness,
capacity to make others happy are values rarely found. The lack of them will be sorely evident
when we examine ourselves keenly. Creating a fund of natural inner goodness, acquiring social
skills that express it, possessing the talent to handle the ripe goodness of heart and sentiment
so as to let it distribute itself across the family, and being endowed with a capacity for inner
generosity that is infectiously sweet are things one can acquire with patience and practice in
humble circumstances too.
These are, in fact, endowments of the highest consciousness, sublime in content. They are
found only in exalted characters, at the top of the world. One who acquires painstakingly these
traits in the humblest of circumstances will, by virtue of them, be elevated in his outer social
position to that of the exalted characters. By itself, these exalted characteristics are welcome
and laudable. If they can also elevate one's position, that is desirable too.

Starting from an early age up to the end of our lives, every one dreams to become a famous
person. It's true that there is a lot of hard work, luck and amny responsibilities involved, but
still, it's impossible not to consider all the advantages that the celebrity enjoys.
Just imagine yourself in such a position.... everybody knows you , loves you and even
worships you ! You are in the eyes and heart of the media all the time, everybody is watching
you. Think about all those fan-clubs full of people eager to know everything about you, eager
to predict and comment on your actions. Every single statement you make is seen as a new
law, any style you may adopt projects you in the field of fashion settlers. Step by step you
have become a role model for them, Children wish to be like you when they grow up, teen-
agers tend to imitate you and adults admire your atitude. Isn't that great ?
Apart from that, your travel all over the world and you can see even the remotest corners of
this planet, and people may have a contact with them through your eyes. I, for one, would be
honored to know this and accomplish the wishes of so many people who cannot otherwise
make this dream come true. This way, they would travel with me trough the cameras,
following me and have a glimpse of the beauty abroad
It is said that celebrities own a lot of money and enjoys luxury. And this is true. They are able
to fulfill all their dreams and other people's wishes, equallt. Most of them are known ti be
charitable and helping the poor, the sick, the unfortunate. I think that this is what really
makes you feel great and important ... showing your feelings and compassion to those who
really need it. Moreover, they will surely appreciate it a lot and turn you into a kind of hero ....
their hero. And now, not only that you feel great by doing this, but also people will love you
even more.
All this being said, I cannot stop thinking about all the advantages Ihave mentioned above and
dreaming to be such a person, even for one day, or at least, half of it!
