Hometown ’s winter always very cold, the leaves fell just like butterflies scatter, I hung out on the avenue, wanted to idle away the boring time. When we grown up, we will find our friends be less and less in childhood, some people left the hometown for far somewhere. God bless them!
Don’t feel lonely just like now me. Parents seem to be older, we are not boys but men. However, I still not want to finish my life on school, which I didn’t cherish great days. People always continue to go ahead in infinite regrets. I picked up some snow and had a taste, oh!

Firstly ,I ’ve learned English for 6 years. I spend a lot of my free time listening to English news and watching English movies, so I’m good at English. That is to say, it’s not difficult for me to talk with people in English.Secondly ,I have been interested in science since I was a child. My favorite books are on science. Some new ideas often come out of my mind, which has encouraged me a lot. With these ideas, I have made some small inventions to make my life more comfortable. Finally , I feel like making friends with different people, no matter where they come from. I’m sure that I will get along well with them. I would be most thankful if you could give me the chance.
Blessed with my parents, I’ve been living a happy and worry-free life in the past 16 years. Therefore, I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude to my parents, who have brought me up not only to learn scientific knowledge but also to behave myself. Without their patient teaching and selfless devotion, I couldn’t have been growing up healthily.

face failure bravely勇敢面对失败
I think the right way to do is facing failure bravely. Last year, I failed in a month exam, I was very frustrated，so I even thought that I would give up. Some days later, my mother knew it, she said to me with a smile，“It is wrong for you to give up, do you remember that you succeeded last time，you will get good grades next time if you face failure bravely .” I thought about those words for a long time.
