Our presentation !!

Yesterday, I can't help seeing the recording again. It reminded me how happy we were when we were presenting.

Before our presentation day, we had spent much time preparing for it. We saw the movie together, collected the materials, amended the powerpoint, and discussed what is the best way to present our novel. At the same time, we also had lots of jobs to do. It made me very worry about our presentation. Could we prepare it adequately by the deadline?

However, our cooperation was wonderful. All members of our team did their assignment on schedule, and we even rehearsed our presentation at the night before our presenting day. We took the presentation seriously, although we did not really know why we had to be so serious, haha! I think maybe it is because we really enjoyed our cooperation. We had the same goal. We really want to make an excellent presentation!

After the presentation, we ate lunch together to celebrate the finish of our presentation. I'm not sure whether our presentation was good or bad, but the lunch was unusually delicious. We really had done our best, and we enjoyed it.

I especially want to mention that we were getting more acquainted because of this activity. Before the presentation, we didn't really know each other very much. But after that, we knew each other more than we did before. That's the most important thing which I really appreciate, and I hope our friendship will last forever!

What is your favourite book and why?

Pride & Prejudice

Every one may have heard about the famous British novel "Pride and Prejudice." It's a very attractive novel to me because it gives me a beautiful dream about love. It's an amazing, wonderful fairy tale, even though it's composed of many humourous conversations and some bad guys!

The author, Jane Austin is very humourous and observed human beings very precisely. Therefore, the plots of the novel are exactly the same as what really happens around us. Although the story is so normal that it's just talking about five daughters waiting to marry, I still can't wait to know what will happen in the next page!

The main female charactor in Pride and Predudice is the bright, pretty young lady Elizabeth, the second daughter in the Bennet family. I really love her because she always does what she thinks, speaks what she wants to say. She isn't like the other girls in this novel, who are just waiting for their handsome Prince Charming to bring them to his castle. She inspects the people around her and thinks of the purposes people have for doing some specific things. It makes her different from the other girls in the story.

However, although she is the brightest girl in this novel, she is still almost missing the true happiness passing in front of her eyes! And it's just because of her prejudice to the main male charactor Mr. Darcy!It gives me an idea. We sometimes think that our opinions are right when we judge a person. But actually it's somehow biased and unfair. We don't really know him, especially when we get along with him only for short time!

We all think that what we think is right, but is that really true? Are we sure it's not our prejudice?

The author is very lenient. Elizabeth finally gets her happiness because of the firm love from Mr. Darcy. And it is proved that Elizabeth's first impression to Mr. Darcy is not correct! And it makes me think of myself! It's meaningful!

Also, I love the happy ending. It makes this novel more attractive. We are all human, and sometimes make mistakes. But if we examine ourselves and try to make less mistakes, success will finally come!

I recommend this book very sincerely, and hope you enjoy this beautiful love story!
