Just do it as your heart tells you

2009級高三理(4)班? 王舒園

指導教師:畢勁梅

Do you know Hamlet, the great play written by William Shakespeare, my favorite English writer? He grew up in a poor family and received little education, but his plays and poems are still widely read all over the world. I like him because his comedies and tragedies take me into a fantastic world and his poems show me the beauty of English language. Because of him, I understand that “Life is a stage,” and we are merely actors and actresses on it. Everyone has a role to play, So I try my best to play my role well.

And, every time I read, “If I had the power of sight for three days”, by the author Helen Keller, I can’t help being moved. Unfortunately, she became both deaf and blind because of a serious illness when she was 19 months old. So she had to live in a world of total darkness and silence. But, with the help of her patient teacher, Ms. Sullivan, she learned to write and became a famous writer. Helen serves as an excellent example for us because, despite the great obstacles she had to face, she never gave up and led an optimisticife. Her inspiration could be: We should all value what we have and try our best to overcome difficulties in our life.

I believe that everyone is gifted. The secret of success is not when or where you are, but what you do and how you do it in your life. Just do it as your hearts tells you to. Nothing is impossible!

I’m an angel to show life at its fullest?

2011級高一(5)班? 楊入一

指導教師:申 誼

In the 21st century, our minds are busy but empty, and people just earn their living to show they’re living. I hope that you can understand that life will be richer because of happiness and freedom rather than business and money. I hope I’ll be an angel, so I can help you understand the true meaning of life.

In the morning, when colorful flower petals of all kinds fall to the ground, I’ll gather them up in a hundred baskets and send them toDreamIslandand I hope people’s hearts will be filled with hope.

I’ll sing, and my song will wind its music around you, and it will become great moments of joy. I hope people’s hearts are filled with happiness.

When the sun reaches the edge of the mountain, I’ll be gathering herbs for my supper by the side of a pond, with birds flying in the blue sky and over the green trees. I hope people’s hearts will be full of nature’s beauty.

I will travel to the quiet corner of children’s minds with the dream baskets and pass on love and wishes. I hope the children will enjoy their real life with their real souls even after they grow up.

I’ll guide those who believe in the miracle of love through life. I’ll let my gentle eyes fall upon those who are cruel to let them know the meaning of living.

I hope I can be an angel to let everyone understand that our life is filled with love, warmth and happiness and that you can enjoy everything to the fullest by just opening your eyes and mind.

Hold onto your dream, and you will make it!

2009級高三理(3)班? 吳倩文

指導教師:張黎明

Some people think dreams are like a colorful rainbow, while others think they are like a charming view. How do you describe your dreams?

I think they are a green land in a desert. If you want to get there, you have to go through many difficulties, like thirst, hanger, tiredness, and so on. If you hold onto your dream, you can get it, but if you lack a brave heart, it will stay far from you. If you lose your direction in the desert, the green area is there and can help you find your way. Dreams are a green land in your heart and let you find the road to your future and give you energy.

I’m a senior three student and we’re sitting in a classroom, working hard for a common dream—going to a good college and studying subjects we really like.

To achieve this, we’re going through a difficult time and have to face many tests. Every time I feel really tired, a voice comes into my head and says the green land is close.

We may have various descriptions of dreams, but every one should be respected. We need to try our best to achieve it, and I am on my way to my dream!

Helping animals live a happy life

2011級 初一(2)班? 馮悅蔓

指導教師:李 丹

Everyone has a dream. Dreams are like a compass and that’s great. I have two dreams: one small, the other big.

I want to go toXi’an. That’s my small dream. I thinkXi’anis a beautiful city with a long history. It’s good for me to learn aboutChinaand I like Chinese history and likeXi’an. One exciting piece of news: my mother says she can go toXi’anwith me during the holiday. I was very happy when I heard this news.

The big dream is to be a zoologist. I think zoology is very interesting and if I were a zoologist, I could travel the world. I could go to the South Pole and see the penguins. I could help animals if they are ill. I could talk to people about helping animals and I think that’s fabulous. So, I’ll study hard and read lots of books about zoology.

I hope my dream will come true soon and I hope every animal can live in this world in a happy way!
