There is a proverb that says, “life depends on sports.” As standards of living have improved, more and more people have begun to play sports regularly. Certainly, people of different ages and from different walks of life tend to hold different views on the purpose of doing sports. Some people play sports to become healthier, others to lose weight or get in shape. I am glad to have the opportunity to share my opinion about the purpose of doing sports.
The first and most important benefit of doing sports is that those who exercise regularly tend to be healthier than those who do not. Exercising is a good way to enhance the functioning of the immune system and keep diseases at bay. Preventing diseases is especially important for old people and the very young. Exercise can also strengthen bones and enhance flexibility.
Second, exercising brings broad spiritual benefits as well. Doing sports leads people to forget their sadness and sorrow, and helps people feel happier and more comfortable. Furthermore, doing sports brings relief from the stress and exhaustion that result from work and study. Exercise leaves people feeling as if they have drunk a magical potion, leaving them energized and confident.
Finally, doing sports regularly improved willpower. Make people are unable to persevere in exercising every day, and quickly give up. However, only by refusing to give in can the greatest benefit be gained. Everyone must try their best to overcome the difficulties that God has sent down. Generally, someone who is able to persevere with sports all his life will probably be successful in other areas as well. In this way, life can become more meaningful.
All in all, doing sports is very beneficial. I hope that more and more people will actively engage in exercising.

Nowadays, we can see high-tech products like computers, TVs, and smart phones almost everywhere. However, if we try to find any TVs in the dormitories at Yulin University, we will be disappointed, even though there are already TVs in our dininsh hall and classrooms. Therefore, I strongly recommend that TVs be put into student dormitories.
Science and technology are developing every day, and the world outside our campus is changing in important ways all the time. As college students, we represent the great future talent of our country. It is important for us to understand what is going on out in the real world, so that we can try our best to keep pace with new developments. Having access to TVs is of great important in this regard.
Watching television can allow students to understand the world better. They can learn about the politics of China and of other countries as well. TVs can also bring other benefits to daily life, such as providing exciting and funny shows on Friday afternoons. Students can sit together
and chat with their roommates while watching TV. Not only would such activities brings students a strong feeling of happiness, but it would also improve students’ abilities to get along well with one another. Dormitories would no longer merely feel like a house to live in, but rather like a home.
Undoubtedly, having TVs in dormitory rooms will cause some inconveniences, and could even lead to trouble. To take just one example, arguments may arise between roommates over which program to watch, or over what is and is not appropriate use of the TV. However, if students are able to live together in one room, they should be able to successfully solve all such disputes.
In a word, TVs should be put into dormitories. The positives of doing so outweigh the negatives.

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date,
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed.But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
