As a middle school student， usually I’m busy and have no time to do other things. But in my spare time， I like reading and traveling. I think they’re fit for me.
A good book is a friend who never turns his back upon us. Reading makes me get a lot of knowledge. I usually read classics. They improve my philological ability（语言能力） and makes me know much different philological style in different countries.
Well， traveling is good， too. I’ve been to many cities. I think I am just like a modern “Xu Xiake”（徐霞客）. It opens up my eyes to the outside world， and makes me feel many different customs.
In 2001， at the age of ten， I went to Beijing to take part in a chorus（合唱） competition by myself. It was my first time to travel without my parents. At first I felt very excited. I had a very heavy bag， and I had to carry it on my back. Then on the train， I couldn’t go to sleep. I missed my home and my parents， and my tears rolled down my face. In Beijing， I visited a lot of places of interest. In my opinion， Beijing， the capital of China， is a mixture of modern civilization and ancient civilization. In Beijing Science Museum， I got a lot of knowledge. Also， I got a lot from other activities.
Life may be sour， sweet， bitter or hot. It gives us different feelings. Life is like a poem， which gives us taste； life is as beautiful as songs； life is also like paintings， and it is very colorful！
