Weekends to people mean that people can have two days' rest. They can go out or get together at home. Everybody spends weekends in his own way. Some people relax themselves by listening to music, reading in libraries or doing sports outdoors. In a word, different people have different relaxations. I often spend weekends with my family. Sometimes my parents take me to visit our relatives. Sometimes we go swimming or go dancing and sometimes I go to read some instructive books. I often enjoy myself at weekends.
Every year, more than 4 million Americans spend their holidays camping in the national forests and natural parks. The number of visitors is rising. Camping has been a long tradition for the American people. Pioneer Americans hunted and fished in forest streams and used forest trees for building houses. Often in their travels, they camped deep in the woods. Of course, it was not for fun at that time. In later years, Americans began to find great fun in camping, fishing and other activities .The campers go climbing, swimming, boating and horse riding. pick wild fruit, watch birds, and take photos of wild flowers, wild animals and the beautiful views. They also spend time making friends and singing around evening campfires. Of course, people are attracted to the forests for different reasons and purposes. Some want to see the wildlife; others may just want to be in the open or live close to the land. These activities are becoming more and more important, especially for the people living in the big cities. New campers may need some information about camping. For example, good maps are necessary not only for planning trips but also for traveling on unfamiliar roads. Making preparations is very important for camping.
I was not happy, because I was late for school and be criticized by my teacher. It was the fault of my alarm clock. It was wrong this morning, but it never has been like this before. It didn’t work, so I woke up at 10:00 a.m. when I hurried to school, I have missed the morning class. Because I didn’t listen to these classes, I didn’t know how to do the homework. It was really a sad day.
Today is my birthday, when I go home after school, I find a big cake in front of me, then my mother and father say happy birthday to me, I feel so surprised and happy. I am 10 year-old now, it means I grow up, I should be more mature and learn to think about my parents. I make a wish, I hope I can make a big progress in my study.
