The singer, Mick Jagger, sings a song that tells us we can’t always get what we want but if we try sometimes we can get what we need. In the past years my parents have told me this saying many times. But I didn’t listen to them.
This year my girlfriend flew off to college in West Palm, Florida. This has been a killer for me because I can’t see her and she is having a difficult time in school. So last month, I tried to get my dad to buy me a plane ticket to go there. My dad told me if I brought him some money he would help me pay for the ticket. I started to complain to him because I had no way of getting any money. I spent several days and nights thinking of ways to earn money. Finally I thought I could get a job and work hard to earn some money. I applied to Safeway Company and I succeeded.
I have worked at Safeway for a bout a month now and work hard to earn money to see my girlfriend. The other day my mom had surprised me and told me that she asked her boss if she could use their business miles(旅费) to buy me a ticket down to Florida for two weeks.

Now students’ English handwriting gets worse and worse. That makes their teachers feel worried. Is your English handwriting beautiful? If not, here are four steps that really work!
Use paper with lines
Using paper with lines can keep you writing straight instead of up or down when you write English words or sentences. Those lines on the paper can help you to write words in the right size. Be sure to fill the lined space completely. And remember that those capital letters are written properly.

Hold your pencil correctly
When you hold your pencil correctly, writing is much easier. Some kids press down really hard when they write. That makes the handwriting not nice. Try to be relaxed and don’t hold the pencil so hard. Let your writing appear nice and clean. If you do so, people will guess you are a student with a good habit.
Draw more pictures
Drawing can improve your handwrit ing. You need to use the skills to control your pencil better when you are drawing pictures. Even though you have no chance to draw at school, you can practice by yourself at home.
