The Skin Color of Beauty
When we walk on the street， we are easily attracted by beautiful girls. They all have white skin and good body shapes. It has been admitted that white skin is the standard to judge whether a girl is beautiful or not. There are all kinds of skin whitening products. Ads implant the idea to people’s mind that only the white skin can make them to be attractive. In some areas of Africa， a lot of girls are so addicted to using skin whitening products. Some products even threaten their health， but the girls still insist to use them. The world is beautiful because of diversity， and the standard of beauty should not be defined by the skin. The manufacturers spread the wrong idea to people’s mind for making more money. So don’t be lost in the public’s opinion.
Plans For the New Semester
Now the Spring Festival has passed and the new semester is coming soon. Looking back on the past year， I have finished my small plans， but haven’t made any breakthrough. So I make up my mind that I must finish the tasks for the new semester. The first plan is to take regular exercise. I like to play computer games and sometimes I can’t help staying up late， which makes me feel sleepy next day in class， so I need to sleep early and then do some sports to improve my efficiency. The second plan is to focus more attention to learn English. English is the international language， so I must learn it well， not only to make the way for study abroad someday， but also for travelling abroad. I need to have the strong will to fulfill my goals.
Nowadays， people are easy to be lost in free commercial ads， the classic example is the make-up ads. When girls walk in the street， there will be some salesmen come after them and tell them to get free products， so the girls are willing to come to the shop. But then they find that they have been cheated because the salesmen ask them to pay the money to buy another products before they get the free one. There is no free meal. So we need to work hard to get the things we want. In western countries， most parents ask their children to do some house work to get pocket money， because they want their children to understand the coming of money bases in hard work. It is important for us to know we need to pay for what we want.
The Manner We Follow
Since we went to school， we have been educated to be polite， no matter to the young or old people. People follow the manner rules and have a nice communication between each other， but some people ignore the rules and they treat their rude behaviors as something cool. Today， people advocate the individuality， so the young generation wants to do something different and catch people’s attention. For example， they don’t care other people’s feeling and criticize others as they like， or just interrupt when other people is talking， they just show what they want to say and they believe they are special and cool. This is very rude behavior that they don’t respect others and have the wrong idea about individuality. We can do something special on the base of respect others and follow the rules， or we are just the rude people.
I Love My Country
A few days before， a girl who studied abroad had the great honor to speech at the graduation ceremony. When people from her country was looking forward to hearing her wonderful speech， they were shocked by her exaggerate words. She said the air in her country was so bad that she needed to wear face mask every time she went out of the house. But when she stepped in America， she felt the sweet and fresh air. The fact is that the quality of air in her hometown was good， and there was no need to wear face mask. A lot of people criticized her for twisting the fact. They show their love to their own country. I love my country， because of its profound culture and diversity. Chinese food is famous around the world. I think my stomach can’t get used to other country’s food. I love everything of my country.
Last week， I made a plan to go back hometown and took a visit of my grandparents. They were so excited to see me because we hadn’t seen each other for a long time. But my friend invited me to take part in his birthday party， and they had prepared many excellent activities. I really wanted to join and share his happiness. But thinking about the promise that I had made to my grandparents before， I was struggled to make final decision. As I didn’t want to break my promise， I chose to refuse my friend’s invitation. When I saw my grandparents’ smile and the delicious food they cooked for me， I knew I did the right thing. We must keep our promise. If we can’t do it， it is necessary to explain， or we will lose trust from others.
