Today I am told to sing a song with one of my classmates. I can’t decide to choose which song to sing. I like singing but when I sing English songs, I’m very nervous because I don’t often sing English songs. In my impression, my spoken English is not very standardized. But there is a common saying says: A penny saved is a penny earned. So I think if I practice more and more, I will speak it well.
It is a sunny day today, so I’m very happy to see the sunshine. Yesterday I felt cold but today I feel much better.
I think the English class given by English teacher has much difference with those given by Chinese teacher. The Chinese teachers attach importance to the grammar but English teachers attach importance to speaking and new words. So I like to learn here.
July 21st Thursday Sunny
On the way to the classroom, beautiful scenery went in my sight. Both sides of the road stood plenty of trees, green and tall. When raising my head, I got a view of many lovely birds flying freely in the blue sky. Then I was lost in thought.
How much I wished I were a bird, which could go wherever it wanted and do whatever it liked. Impossible as it was, I still felt very happy, for I was a man who had the ability to imagine and enjoyed the happiness it brought!
As I walked on slowly, a bright simile bloomed on my face.
July 22nd Friday Sunny
Every now and then, people complain they just miss the chance again and again. They may feel depressed for a long time, thinking luck will never bless them.
However, as a matter of fact, chances just exist around us. It’s no use waiting for the next chance or regretting having missed a chance. It is not whether there still are chances for you but your being ready for the chances which are on the way that really matters. Therefore, we should make full use of time. Only in this way can we keep calm when facing difficulties. And then we can catch the chance and enjoy the happiness it brings.
July 22nd Friday
Today is Friday. It’s fine today. Good weather!
Matt’s class was in the morning. It was a little more interesting. We talked about American football. First Matt showed us a magazine about his high school’s football team and other information on football matches. Then he let us watch a movie called “Friday Night Lights”. That was the name because high schools have football matches only on Friday nights. He also told us other things about football. I don’t like American football because it is too violent. However, I like the movie.
I find that it’s getting more and more difficult to write a diary, a 100-qord diary!
July 24th Sunday
At weekends we have no lessons, but we have many interesting activities.
On Saturday afternoon, we watched the movie Forrest Gump in the classroom. It’s a good movie. It’s very moving, sad and happy. You can learn a lot from the movie. Forrest is stupid but he’s also very clever.
On Sunday we had singing contest. I am one of the contesants. My song’s name is One Love. It’s a song of Blue, a British music group. I went into the “Final Seven”. But other contestants were really excellent. I didn’t get any prizes. Another contestant from our class called Candy was the third-place winner. Congratulations to her! Though I didn’t get prizes, I was very happy. I tried my best.
P.S: All the contestants were girls except me!

Two years ago, my father asked me if I wanted to be a doctor when I grew up. I said No at once because I didn’t like this job at all. But now, I change my mind. A month ago I went to see the doctor. I found that many doctors weren’t careful enough to look over the patients. They liked to give the patients the most expensive medicine. I was very angry. So I make up my mind to be a doctor in the future. Doing this is very rewarding because it can help save people’s lives and make people healthy. My grandma died of cancer. I want to heal people who have cancer. Now we have no ideas and no good medicine to heal those people. Cancer makes many people lose their lives, makes their relatives cry hard and spends much money. So I will work hard from now on. I wish I could work out this difficult problem with other friends.
