Early in the morning,we all set off for the beach.We took a lot of pictures on the way.By noon we arrived at the hotel.After having lunch there we went to the beach.We were so tired that we spent the whole afternoon lying on the beach and swimming a lot.On the way back to the hotel,we went shopping for presents.In the evening it rained.We all stayed in the hotel and played table tennis.We had a good time today.
This afternoon I went to play basketball with some of my good friends happily.
At the very beginning, I didn‘t want to go playing basketball though my friends invited me to. I was (had been) in a bad mood the whole afternoon because I didn‘t do well in the math exam. With their comfort and encouragement, I went with them. However, I was just one of the audience. I dare not have a try because I was afraid that I couldn‘t play well. Encouraged by my good friends, I picked up the basketball and played with them. And luckily I got scores. I felt very excited.
Now I have become cheerful and above all I‘ve regained self-confidence. I believe that the worst enemy in one‘s life is oneself. I shouldn‘t lose heart just because of one or two failures because I still have chances to try.
In keeping a diary in English， we inevitably run up against a lot of difficulties. In the first place， it often happens that we have trouble finding appropriate words and phrases to give expression to our mind. Secondly， there are many idiomatic ways of saying things in Chinese. And it is extremely hard for us to put them into English properly. Certainly， there are some other roadblocks we may come across in our keeping a diary in English.
As far as I’m concerned， my suggestion is that we should always have a note book and a Chinese-English dictionary within easy reach. Whenever something beats us， we can first put it down in our notebook and then consult our dictionary. We can also turn to our English teacher for help， if necessary. In short， it is of great use to keep a diary in English for the development of our writing skills.
