An important lesson in my life
The will is exercised here, the mind is washed here, and the behavior is regulated here. This is an important lesson in my life——military training. On the TV, the neat and mighty army’s lineup make me envious, the neat place made me excited, and the standard and powerful movement made me feel upset. I am looking forward to my first military training in my life. I hope this day will come soon. In China, on August 26, 2016, I finally welcomed this day when I was in Grade 9.
Watching TV, the soldiers walked so easily and neatly, the posture was so beautiful and standard. However, when I really practiced it, I felt hard. This seemingly ordinary and arduous training made all of our classmate’s physical and mental strengths extremely experienced. The sun is like a big fireball and it ruthlessly roasted us. After a while, my sweat dripped down my forehead, my feet began to numb, and my hands were hurting. Standing in the military position, stepping forward, repeating the practice over and over again, so that my legs seem to have been filled with the lead as if I did not listen to my call, always trembled. The hot sun is honing our will, and the hot sports field is testing our endurance. However, we stubbornly persisted, no one complained, no one fell behind, we defeated the sun’s roasting, and defeated the disturbing fatigue. We were proud of ourselves. When the whole body was wet, we gradually matured; in the arduous military training, we throw away the fragility and put on the strong armor. Our perseverance is gradually revealed, and our will is gradually strengthened by military training!
Military training is hard, boring, but our body has become stronger and stronger. When we practiced, we once again showed our patience, persistence, and tenacity. When I kneel down, my whole body weight was on my right foot. After a while, my right foot was numb. If at this time my right foot can move freely, if I can stand up at this moment, if… I have a lot of beautiful assumptions in my mind, but I still stick to the end. When I slowly stood up, my feet seemed to lose consciousness. But I am gratified that I have come up with my tenacious perseverance. Because I believe that persistence is victory, persistence is warm spring sunshine, it can melt winter frost; persistence is summer green, gestating autumn prosperity; persistence is autumn fruit, it shows good luck in winter; persistence is winter Snow, it is a sign of spring hope. Hold on for a minute and the victory will be under your feet.
Military training taught me strong will, military training taught me normative behavior. It is a very bitter movement to lift the foot and keep one position for a long time. In 2 minutes, my feet began to shake, and the raised feet slowly hang down. At this time, for me, this is very tormented! But my feet didn’t touch the ground, even though it was so painful at the moment. Finally, we successfully passed the test of the instructors. In the formal practice, the training slogan echoed the slogans of the students: “One, two, three, four…” I learned to face the courage in the face of pain. In the midst of suffering, I learned to overcome it.
Military training is a precious and rare experience. It has always been written into my memory and has become an indelible part of me. In fact, hardship is the cradle of your success. Perseverance is a kind of power. It gives me motivation and support when it is difficult. It gives me eternal wealth and strength in my life journey. As long as the light of perseverance in the heart is not dim, the leaves of life will never rot.

Restaurant review：Tastes of the pier in the alley
Pier 39 is one of the smallest restaurants in Shanghai China, but it also carries wonderful memories belonging to our family. The restaurant is located in Jinxian Road, which is quiet in the middle of noisy. There are always seats available, and you can enjoy the food quietly. As soon as you enter, you’ll smell a characteristic aroma of coffee, and see the gray brick wall which it looks very Nordic. The waiter will ask about your preferences first to help you arrange your seat. The seats there are quite small, and people who feel like it can touch the side table. The restaurant is dominated by Nordic style, with bright floor-to-ceiling windows, brown round dining tables, and soft as the clouds of the sofa seating. This gives a fresh, bright and natural visual experience. Close to the corner of the wall, decorated with a few pots of carefully trimmed, radiant green plants, make people’s mood also brighten up. Because there are not many customers, the waiters are also pretty relaxed. But their meals are as fresh as the restaurant’s décor: the smoked salmon salad is a must-order for every visit. Served with fresh vegetables, orange tomatoes, and topped with an attractive, shiny salmon and golden cheese powder. It is Drizzled with the store’s homemade citric vinegar before serving. With soothing jazz, people talk and chew, enjoying the atmosphere. You can have a salmon with vegetables, the taste of sweet and sour bloom in your mouth. Their chicken breast spaghetti is also my favorite: hot, sweet pasta is perfect for a cold stomach after a salad. Soft chicken breast with mushroom and onion; and with the creamy sauce made with milk, salt, and black pepper, sprinkled with green parsley; and sweet and salty taste cannot be more devotion. Most of the dishes cost only $18, and the amount of each dish is very large: like a salad pot. We celebrated my mother’s 39th birthday in this restaurant, and our photos are still on the photo wall of the restaurant. Spend a 39th birthday at the “39th pier”. This restaurant preserves the precious memories of our family’s birthday, and also allows us to taste the fresh and special “pier” taste. The most rewarding things to do is to be with the family, quiet enjoyment of food and leisure is time.
Reflection: I am proud of my use of imagery and I tried really hard, although I only have some simple words. Next time, I will avoid repetition of words and concentrate on making correct sentences. I will also Strive to use more diverse punctuation. Hope that I can do better next time!
A common life, yet wonderful memories!

I have always wanted to travel around the world. On the road carrying backpacks, I have seen many people, heard many stories, and saw the scenery of travel. In this way, I slowly learned to grow up. Travel is another kind of life. Life is a journey. The footsteps of travel never stop to pick up the beauty and the sky of life, let the travel have more meaning of life and make life more travel. Travel is actually about where you are standing, what kind of people you met, your feelings, thoughts, new things that you care about and discover, the lifestyles of you and others, the arrangement of ideas, you and the unknown world. Dialogue, you ask questions about your heart. All of this requires us to look for it with sincerity. No matter the journey or life, the harvest must be a lot.
