I spent this summer vacation in quite a different way. I used to run about every day in previous summer vacations, but this summer vacation I simply could not afford to do so. I would soon be in the last year of my high-school education and would after graduation be up against the college entrance examinations. Though those examinations were still a year away, I had to start early to make myself well prepared by reviewing all those things I had learned at school and this summer vacation was the ideal time for me to do this. At first I was rather dismayed at the thought of this, but later I thought it was better this way because by working hard this summer I could count on endless happy summers to come. With this in mind I then set to work like anything and only occasionally went out for a change or did some physical. I was not at all bored by this kind of life, for I was sustained by a hope.
Today our school had an opening ceremony in the school auditorium. All the teachers and students as well as some famous gentriesand government officials attended. Our headmaster made a speech. He hoped that everybody in our school would work harder and made even more progress in the new semester. School master spoke highly of some outstanding teachers and students and hoped that all teachers and students can learn from them. "Three-good-deed" students were rewarded with prizes. Headmaster also announced that some honor students received Zheng Zhucheng scholarship because they did very well in their studies as well as in lives, although they came from poor families. A famous gentry then made a speech. He shared his learning experience with students and how he achieved success in his career. I was so moved by his stories. This is a new mester, I decide to work harder and performan better than before.
