I like my school

I Like Qin-Hua Junior High
Jan. 2, 2006
I like my school – Qin-Hua junior high school. The reason is that I have a lot of buddies here and I think my classmates are really kind. When I was in the sixth grade, every time when I had a dance performance, my classmates would start laughing at me as soon as I stepped into the classroom. However, at Qin-Hua, after wearing a silly costume and performing in front of the whole seventh grade, no one has made fun of me.

I was Sick
Dec. 26, 2005
I don’t feel very well today. Therefore, after class was dismissed I went to see a doctor. The ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctor told me that I have sinusitis. The symptoms include nasal congestion. The medication for it makes me dizzy and nauseous. I feel terrible, and I am worried about the poetry recital competition on Thursday. I think I will have to stand on the stage with my stuffy nose. I think I should cross my fingers and wish myself luck!

Bad Luck
Yesterday, when my brother went to the school assembly, a branch of a coconut tree fell from the height of four stories onto his head. He said that it landed on him the moment he stepped out onto the field. There was no warning sign at all, so he had no time to avoid it. Immediately, he was sent to the health center. Luckily, there is only a big bump on his head and no serious damage was done. This kind of accident may happen anytime on campus. I just hope that everyone can be careful and no lives will be hurt.

Chicken Pox

Chicken Pox
Can you believe it? I am thirteen years old and I’ve just got chicken pox. Lately, I haven’t felt well and I found rashes all over my body. Today, when I went to see the dermatologist, he said that it is very bad to get this disease at my age. Usually, the complications are extremely serious. However, I had the vaccine when I was young. Therefore, my symptoms were really mild.

Learning the Guitar

Learning the Guitar
Since I started the sixth grade, I also started learning the guitar. I like to sing along as I play. However, my guitar is for “children.” It’s small. I’ve already grown up now, so I need a standard sized guitar. Today, my mother bought me a second-hand guitar. Even though there is a scratch on the handle, the quality of the sound is still as good as a new one. I’m very satisfied with it.

sing along:邊彈邊唱
grow up:長大
be satisfied with:滿意

As a Little Star

As a Little Star
One of my classmates told me that she works in her parents’ store to earn her own pocket money. I would like to earn my own money as well. I am an English actress at PTS TV station. I play many roles in the English TV programs, including “Let’s talk in English and E4Kids.” Sometimes they even ask me to record English songs for them. I think doing all this is very fun, so I enjoy my “work” very much.
