Article #21 Being a Princess

Sometimes, I think that I would like to be a princess.

A princess would live in a palace and wear beautiful clothes.

She would have servants to do chores for her, and she would probably marry a handsome prince.

People would recognize her.

They would wave to her as she drove by.

It seems like it would be a lot of fun to be a princess.

But maybe it wouldn't be so nice.

Maybe it would be terrible to be recognized by everyone.

Maybe a princess would feel like everyone was watching her.

She would have to look nice every time she left the palace.

There would always be people with cameras who wanted to take her picture.

Article #26 Hot and Cold
I notice that whenever it is summer, people complain about the heat, but whenever it is
winter, people complain about the cold.
VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí
It seems that people are never satisfied.
I don't like the winter.
It is usually much too cold for me.
My teeth chatter, and my fingers turn numb whenever the weather gets cold.

Article #27 Walk a Mile in My Shoes
Have you ever heard the saying "walk a mile in my shoes?"
I think it is a very good saying.
VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí
Do you know what it means?
It means, that before you judge someone, you should put yourself in his or her position.
For example, if someone was running in a race, and they did very poorly and came in last it wouldn't be
fair to say, "oh, he's just a terrible runner."
You would have to look at all the circumstances that made the person lose the race.
Maybe they pulled a muscle in their leg the day before; maybe this is their very first race;
maybe they are not in good form because something isn't right in their lives.
There can be so many things that affect a person's life, performance and moods.
If someone was very quiet at a party, you couldn't just assume that they weren't friendly.
You don't know what is happening in their lives.
They could be feeling ill, or they might have just had a bad experience.
Nobody can know exactly how another person feels.
Even if someone tells you what he or she is experiencing, you still won't fully understand what is going
on inside the other person.
Everyone perceives and feels things differently.
To walk a mile in someone else's shoes is to try and understand things from that
person's perspective.
We are all shaped by the events that have taken place in our lives.
No two people have gone through the exact same things.
So, before you are quick to judge someone, stop and think about what it is that they
might have gone through.
You won't always understand why people do what they do, but you can try to understand
and put yourself in their position.

Article #28 If I Could Go Back in My Life

I would not waste so many hours in front of the television set.
I would get out and enjoy my own life, rather than watching actors in shows.
I would be a little more considerate of other people.
I would realize that my mother has more to do than pick up after me.

I would pay more attention in school.
Tests are easier when you have paid attention, rather than fooling around in class.
I would save more money rather than spend it on useless things.
I would read more.
Reading is enjoyable, and it opens the doors into all kinds of wonderful places both real
and imagined.
I would learn to play an instrument.
Music is always appreciated if it is played well.
I would eat better foods.
I would try to stay healthy through my diet and exercise.
I would take more pictures, and I would keep a journal.
Memories are very precious.
I would take the time to listen to what people have to say.
People appreciate a good listener.
I would take the time to enjoy each day as it comes.
Sometimes, I am so busy looking forward to what is coming up that I don't take the time
to enjoy the day that I am living in.
That's what I would do if I could go back in my life.
In fact, I think I'll just make a habit of doing all of those things all through my life.
I think I would like to live to be 100.

so funny that you felt like laughing.

Article #30 Drugs
There are two different types of drugs.
There are legal drugs and illegal drugs.
Legal drugs are the type of drugs that the doctor gives you when you are sick.
Illegal drugs are the drugs that people sell on the street.
Illegal drugs are very dangerous.
If someone ever wants you to try any type of substance that you are not sure about, you
should always say no.
People who sell drugs on the street are criminals.
If they get caught, they will be sent to jail.
They sell drugs to get money.
They don't care that people's lives are ruined from taking drugs.
If you take illegal drugs, you can become addicted to them.
That means that you just have to have the drug no matter what.

Drugs affect your mind.

Your memory won't be very good.
Your personality won't be the same.
It is very unfortunate that some people do try drugs.
They think that it won't hurt them.
They are wrong.
If you are smart, you will stay away from all drugs, except for the ones that the doctor
gives you.
Drugs are just bad news.
If you know someone who is thinking about trying drugs, tell them that their entire life
could be ruined.
In America, they had a saying.
"Just say no to drugs."
It is a good saying, but I think I would rather say, "I'm just too smart to take drugs."
