I asked many classmates and friends, “What do you think you will be when you grow up?” 1 of them told me what they would like to be in the future, 2 others said, “I don’t know.” I’m 3 to hear that because I think it’s bad. I think having dreams or hopes about the future will help us do better at school.
As middle school students, it’s time for us to 4 what we want to be in the future. If we know it better, we will know 5 to do it better at school. For example, if you are outgoing and like to meet people, you can be a 6 in the future. Then you should practice 7 more articles. If you’re happy with children and like 8 , you can teach English as a job in the future. And then you are supposed to work harder at English. If you want to9many interesting places, you can be a tour guide.
Of course, all the 10 that we are learning at school will be useful in the future, so we should work hard at all of them.

The story was a true one and still moved me deeply. Thirty years ago，I got to know a 1 lady named Rose. She had no kids and lived alone. 2 I went to visit her, I always took Rose some coffee and food. One day she said she was inviting me to have hunch.
We walked from my work place to a little restaurant on David Street. 3 the way, I began to worry: I knew that she had no money, but if I offered to pay for the lunch，I was afraid I would hurt her.
There were many people in the 4 and all of them were happy. Rose told me to sit and drink coffee by the window. Then she went to 5 in the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, she came out and sat with me. She just paid for one meal and we started to 6 the delicious food together. She told me that the restaurant let people work for a meal if they had no money, or would give them a free meal if they were not able to work. To my surprise, she also explained that the workers who were working there were all 7 .
I still remember the beautiful afternoon I shared with Rose. 8 we had a meal together only once, it was paid by Rose's work. The weather was 9 and bright, and everyone's smile was warm and bright as well.
I’m still thinking that life cannot be easy to us, but we can still do 10 for our friends and neighbors. The world will never be dark if there is a light in everyone's heart.
