Extra-curriculum

In our school teachers set up additional lessons. So all children can learn what they want extra-curriculum. The head teacher gives up his own time to teach us Psychology. Now we can pick up our knowledge and become more intelligent. It is very important if you want to be a successful person. Also it is a good idea to start attending extra-curriculum lessons because students can take up something new if they have free time. Lessons end at 5 p.m. All my friends leave classrooms with happy faces and new thoughts.

A Hasty Winter Day

I was going for a walk and my mom said to me to do up my overcoat because it was very cold. My taxi drew up and the driver got out. It was hard for me to open the door because the lock had frozen up. My favourite song was on in the car so I said to the driver to turn up the volume. A few minutes later news begun. A presenter summed up all situations in a few words. I don’t like news so it made my mood worse. I phoned my friend but she was busy and hung up before I could ask her anything. When I arrived, the party hadn’t broken up yet and almost all my friends were there. It had been a difficult hasty winter day, and finally I was able to relax.

One Day of My Life

I got up early today’s morning. But then I understood, ”It is Sunday, I don’t need to go anywhere”. So I stayed up late in bed. Then I got downstairs, dressed up and went to the kitchen. My mom cooked me a beautiful breakfast. Then I washed up all plates after eating up my omelette and drinking up my tea. I knew that my father would come soon, so I mixed up the ingredients to cook tasty salad. I was very glad that I could cook because I was brought up well. Having done all my house work I caught a taxi and went to my friends to a café.

Day With My Friends

My friends and I were tidying up in my house. Suddenly a shelf with books fell off. My friend had a very deep wound and she was crying. I put some bandage on the wound and  said to her that she shouldn’t cry though it would take some time to heal up. The tallest of my friends put the shelf up back on the wall and fixed it up. Then we went to the shop to buy snacks because we were going to watch our favourite film. We wanted to buy strawberries so we looked up for them on the Internet and went straight to the grocery that was selling them. And when we found them we knew that the price of strawberries had shot up. We went home cheered up because we were about to watch the film. It was a great ending of a day.

You should be able to disapprove of other words

People can accuse you of being rude sometimes. But sometimes you should be able to disapprove of their words. A person can’t become rude for nothing. Some situations in his life made him like that. Life is difficult. And you mustn’t dieof tiredness if you even work a lot of. Remember that life consists of black and white pages. Work hard, play hard. Sometimes you won’t have enough money to pay a bill, sometimes you won’t be forgiven for something, sometimes you will apologize for your mistakes, you are to blame for your actions. You will suffer from loneliness in the nights, and after that you will protect yourself from all bad things that happen in this crazy mad world. You shouldn’t depend on anything; you can’t always rely on anyone. Everything is temporary in this world. Work hard to live on your salary. Congratulate close people on their victories. Take compliments and don’t be shy to compliment someone for what they did or for their look! Live, love and laugh.

Believe in Yourself!!!

Every person should believe in himself. People must believe in their abilities. And we must understand that we can’t succeed in everything because it is impossible! We should search better for what everyone of us specializes in. So, let’s search for our job to say for example  “I specialize in company law”. We must fill our life with wide thoughts, good people, a lot of smiles and with a lot of useful information. This way we provide ourselves with good mood.Good and bad things can happen to us. We can invite good and bad people in our life. But in dark moments we should prefer bad mood to something good. Concentrate on important things. Spend yourself only on something worth it!!!
