As Time Goes By
As time goes by, we all grow up. Freshmen, are you still puzzled or are you ready to fight for your future? Well, I am ready for a new start, and I will take new steps towards my future. Now, I will tell you something about my plan.
Firstly, of course, I will study hard and be a good leaner. I am going to get up early to do morning exercises and have a quick breakfast. Then, I will read in the morning and listen to my teachers carefully in class. After class, I will borrow some books from the library to read. Also, I will be active in English Corner and Chatroom. I will also listen to songs and news in English.
Secondly, I ought to take good care of myself to stay in good health. Meanwhile, I will make more friends with others and keep in contact with my old friends. I would also like to communicate with my parents more and let them know that I am doing fine at school.
Next, I am going to try my best to improve myself by learning to be outgoing and getting along well with my classmates. At the same time, I will take part in more clubs and practice doing more things. For example, I would volunteer to help students who are poor in speaking English. In this way, not only can I help others, but also I can get some good experiences. So, I will be more independent and make great progress.
Finally, I should be positive and optimistic about the future. I will go on fighting, getting ready for my future. Only if I am ready, when chances come, will I be there and be successful. So, everyone, get ready, you will get your success.

Value Your Time
Since I entered college, I have felt a great burden off my mind and I just want to relax. So do my classmates. We enjoy playing cards and are very skillful at it. We seldom work on our lessons unless there is an examination. Then we work under pressure. I know it is not good, but what I lack is self control. Most of us know it is a problem, and it is time we did something about it.
As youth, we are in the prime of our lives. We should make good use of our golden time. The teachers take pains to teach us every day so that we can acquire more knowledge. We should not fail their expectations. I should not rest with content with what I have done. Entering college is just a step in the threshold of the palace of knowledge. The road is long. The modern age needs the well educated. The future world will be highly competitive. If we idle away our time while young , who shall regret it in vain when we are old.
From now on , I will concentrate all my energy on my studies as to qualify myself as a talent in the 21st century. Time and tide wait for no man. I should value my time. What about you, my friend?
Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once.
I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep it up for a life time.
Just for today I will be happy.
This assumes to be true as to what Abraham Lincoln said:
"Most folk s are as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my ''luck" as it comes.
Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer.
I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.
Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as good as I can , dress amusingly, talk, act courteously, criticize not one bit, and try not to improve or regulate anybody by myself.
Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it.
I will save myself from two pests, hurry and indecision.
