Why Do We Attend University
When we consider why we should attend universities, different people have different ideas. In some students' eyes, studying in universities means a bright future after graduation. They think they are bound to find good jobs with a good college education. However, life in the colleges and the jobs that they can find are usually somewhat disappointing.
Especially under the severe competition of today's society, it is not very easy for a college graduate to find a satisfying job. As far as I am concerned, universities can provide good study opportunities and essential facilities for those who want to acquire knowledge for the construction of our country, and this is the reason why we attend universities.
02. On Super Girls
Our class has recently held a heated discussion about the super girl's phenomenon which was hot news in these years. The students show their different opinions about it.
62% of the students support it, they think that it provides a chance for those with talent for singing to show. In this way, some new singers can be trained and so it can promote the development of music and it can also improve their consciousness of competition.
However， 38% of the students are against it. They believe that many students spend too much time and energy on the competition. Some students even long to become famous overnight and can't concentrate themselves on studies. What's worse it can cause some students to worship their idols blindly.
In my opinion, we can have our preference but we shouldn't lose ourselves in the star pursuing tide.
03 Can Money Buy Happiness
Nowadays, a lot of people in society think the more money they have the more happiness they will obtain. As a result they will try their best to get money, even without considering the law.
But in my view, the greatest happiness lies in one’s satisfaction with one’s surroundings. So long as we can look at things with a happy heart, we can be happy. It has nothing to do with a mount of money we have. Therefore, people shouldn’t pay too much attention money we have. On the contrary (相反地) what they should do is to put their money to good use and try to have an optimistic outlook all the time.
04 The Advantages and Disadvantages of Surfing the Internet
With the development of computer technology, the internet has become more and more popular.
Opinions are divided on whether students should surf the internet after class. Some students regard it as a great helper, the main reasons for this are listed as follows, first you can surf the internet for any information you need in a short time without working hard in the library; besides it is convenient to communicate with others by using the internet.
However, other students think that there are some disadvantages of the internet because there is also some information that's not good for the students. In addition, spending too much time playing games online will not only have a bad affect on study but also do harm to our health.
Therefore，we should make proper use of the internet. It is of great importance for us to separate good plans from wild weeze.
05 Natural Resources
For many years, we have been told that China is rich in various natural resources so many people take it for granted that they are inexhaustible. people have not considered that one day some of these natural resources will be used up and that we will then be faced with energy crisis.
As a matter of fact, many of the natural resources can't be replaced once used up such as the coal mines or oil fuels, etc . energy crisis will threaten our existence because of our excessive exploitation and because of the growing population.
Considering the above the government should try to take some action to protect the natural resources and people should be educated not to waste them.
There are many arguments about the advantages and disadvantages of examinations. Some people think that examinations can help them review the lessons regularly, while others maintain that too many examinations have frustrated them.
To me I think an examination is a good thing for both the teachers and students. Teachers can find out how much the students have grasped and then improve their teaching, students on the other hand will learn what their weak points are and then study even harder.
All in all, we should not waste time arguing whether examinations are good or not. What we should do is to try to improve the exam system and try to adjust it to our different requirements.
Nowadays, more and more people in society have realized the importance of quality education. However students in primary schools and high schools are still complaining that they are overloaded with too much homework.
In many teachers' eyes, homework offers a good methods to strengthen the knowledge the students have obtained, yet they ignored the disadvantages that homework brings. For one thing too much homework will take up all the spare time of students leaving them unable to enjoy the rest of their lives; for another too much homework will do great harm to students' health both physically and mentally.
It is high time that schools thought more about the function of homework and tried to take practical measures to promote the all-round development of students.
08.Work and Rest
Just as a famous saying goes: all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. It is obvious that people should have adequate rest in order to work hard.
Yet some students especially those who are preparing for the college entrance examination are worried about their lessons and spend all their day time going over them. In their eyes they should sacrifice their rest time in order to get high
scores on tests. As a result they suffer greatly from poor health and some of them may do poorly in the examinations.
In conclusion, we should be aware that nothing is more valuable than health which is a foundation of one success. With a poor health one can hardly succeed in anything he does. Therefore a student we should have enough rest to ensure a healthy body to work and study.
09.Is Honesty Going out of Style
Most Chinese people are quite familiar with the story of the three wolves cries. We taught to be honest when we were very young.
However, as we grow up we find that it is difficult to be honest all the time. Sometimes we are forced to tell lies and other times we find people who are dishonest can enjoy great pleasures, while honest people have to suffer failures and still there are times when we have to tell lies in order not to hurt others. Consequently people wonder whether honesty is going out of style.
As far as I'm concerned honesty should always be an important feature valued by Chinese people we should try our best to avoid telling lies even white lies only in this way it's a fair society awaiting us.
10.My Views of the Ban on Firecrackers
Most of us may still hold a happy memory in our minds when we were young, the spring festival was celebrated with the company of the flaming box and the loud explosions of firecrackers, but because of the numerous disasters caused by them, governments in some big cities have completely banned firecrackers in the downtown areas.
Some people are sad about this decision. They argue that they will lose the tradition of the Spring Festival. Regardless of the fires and the damage to human bodies caused by firecrackers they only focus on the pleasure firecrackers can bring about.
With the development of the modern society, more and more changes will take place in our lives. Some of which may be great challenges against the traditions, but we should support the government's policy and the consideration of the whole society. What's more upon step into the new century we should celebrate the Spring Festival in a more civilized way.
11.The Positive and the Negative Effects of Advertising
In the modern information era, one can't avoid being surrounded by various kinds of advertisements. They serve as a direct bridge between manufactures and consumers. By advertising, manufactures can easily introduce their products and attract the attention of consumers. On the other hand, consumers will have more opportunities to get to know more about the things they are interested in. However, there is still lots of people who complain that many of the words in advertisements are rather misleading. Some manufactures spend far too much money on advertising their products without trying to promote the quality of their goods. To make things worse, some people even use false descriptions in their advertisements for the sake of making money.
Perhaps it is not advertising that should be blamed rather we need to strengthen advertising law. Only under the firm control of government, can advertisements benefit people in the broadest sense.
12.The Generation Gap
Nowadays many young people are complaining that their parents can not understand them very well. They say that their parents take care of every aspect of their lives leaving them a neighbor to have their private space yet parents are worried that their children don't show any respect to them and never give them any trust.
Consequently the household phrases spreading it is the generation gap. By using this phrase both the young and the old have found a good explanation for their misunderstanding of each other. Yet they don't bother to take any measures to cover the distance between them.
In my opinion I think we should first admit that there are indeed some differences between parents and children then we should try to take some time to communicate with each other frequently. Not only the parents but also the kids should be equal when they're exchanging their views. Only by the joint efforts can the parents and children breach the generation gap between them.
13.Science and Human Life
With the development of science, human life has changed tremendously. People living in the 18th or 19th centuries would never imagine the advanced
household appliances we are now able to enjoy. Every aspect of our lives for instance, in the field of medicine or agriculture has witnessed great improvements through the application of science.
However, many people complained that science has also brought disasters to human life. Some evil scientists have used their knowledge to do some illegal things. They may use science for the creation of weapons to destroy thousands of lives in wars, they might also use their knowledge to produce drugs to make a lot of money for themselves.
Generally speaking, science has provided us with many valuable things but if used wrong way it can also lead to harm. We should try to keep science under control and put it to the best use of mankind.
14.Do Lucky Numbers Really Bring Good Luck
Do lucky numbers really bring good luck? Some people think lucky numbers like 6 or 8 would bring them good luck. Because they bare similar pronunciation to the related Chinese characters which mean “good luck”. As a result, some young couples choose a date in which there is a 6 or an 8 to hold their wedding. Well, many shops choose such dates to celebrate their opening ceremony.
However, it’s rather ridiculous to think numbers can bring good fortune to people. One success has nothing to do with the number which one choose, but is rather related to one’s own efforts. Numbers are only numbers, we should not attach too much importance to them. If you really think that a number can bring good luck to you, simply choose it, but don’t forget to still go out of your way with your own effort. Without your own contribution, good luck won’t simply fall on you automatically.
15.Film is Giving Way to TV
There is a common phenomenon in our daily lives. During the period from 1975 to 1985, films goes decline dramatically 85,000 to about 12000 while TV watches sprung up from 5,000 to100,000.
As to the reasons, we may consider the following aspects. With the popularity of TV in our households, more and more people want one because of its cheapness and convenience. On the other hand, TV programmes can offer us more options at the same time.
Nevertheless, films have not fully given way, some people still prefer going to the cinema. They feel that the audio visually effect offered in the cinema is a permanent temptation.
16.College Students Going to Rural Areas
There is a common phenomenon in recent years, more and more students are willing to go to rural areas to put their knowledge into practical use. In 1993,the numbers of students going to rural areas was only 5% of the total number graduates, however, five years later; that percentage have more than doubled. Upon thinking about the reasons for this change, we may find some interesting things. First of all, with the development of society, college students have changed their way of thinking. They are becoming more practical. If they can get a better paid job and if they are more likely to have a nice future in the rural areas. they will no longer stick to the idea of becoming assistant in big cities, on the other hand, the government to also educates that choice of working in the rural areas which encourages more young students to leave the big cities.
With the development of a balanced economy, big cities will gradually lessen their attraction for the college graduates.
As we know, when senior students graduate from school, most of their reference books as well as their text books which are still in good condition are thrown away. What a great waste it is! I suggest that we should recycle these books.
On the one hand, recycling them can save a lot of natural resources which can be reused to make textbooks. On the other hand, senior students may have made plenty of useful notes on the pages, they are very useful to the following users. At present, the whole nation is hold on to build an energy saving society. I think it is certain meaningful to our long term interests. In fact in Australia and some other countries, recycling textbooks is popular which gives us a good example.
18. My Views on Tradition
Many people especially the aged hold the idea that we should stick to the traditions of our country. Otherwise they think we will lose our distinctive Chinese character. In their eyes, we should be proud of the great traditions left by our ancesters, we should maintain these old traditions in order to differentiate
ourselves from other nations.
But many others are strongly oppose to it. They argue that we should not be confine to our own traditions. As to some traditions, they are clearly obstacles to the development of our society. We should certainly not hesitate to give them up. While on the other hand, tradition may be improved through the international communications. We should perhaps not be obsessed with our own traditions. On the contrary, we should brave enough to take in all the valuable traditions that comes from different nations. Only in this way, can our society be run properly and only in this way, can we improve on our traditions.
In recent years, China has witnessed the prosperity of fast food restaurants in big cities. It is quite easy for people to have meals at KFC or Mc Donalds. At lunch time, it is hard to find seat in some fast food restaurants.
While so many small restaurants are worried about how to attract more customers, foreign fast food restaurants have rushed into China. Why can they draw so many people's attention? Firstly, fast food is very fast and convenient, people can stuff themselves within several minutes. Secondly, the restaurants offering fast food also provide a very comfortable environment as well as a warm atmosphere. people can not only enjoy the food they have but can also feel the foreign flavor the restaurants try to display.
However, most of the people who regularly go to fast food restaurants rarely realize the facts that although the food may taste delicious, fast food usually has little nutrition. I think they should eat less for the sake of their health.
Books play an important part in our daily life. There are numerous kinds of books and each one can be categorized according to its content.
Books are to human life like food to our bodies. Our lives become colorful because of the existence of books. By reading books, our knowledge can be enriched. From books we can get to know many unfamiliar things; from books we can learn how people live in other counties; from books we can broaden our minds and no longer be isolated in our own living circle. In short, books can provide us with so many things.
Yet, some books are harmful to us when reading them we will be greatly affected. Therefore, try to choose good books and read them in a well planed way.
