1. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement, school should require all students to have their own laptops. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Personally, I think students should be required to own laptops. To begin with, students might need to write papers, and they can find reference on the internet easily, cuz they can just type the key words in the search engine, and the next moment they know, the answer shows up on the screen, and they basically can find reference on every topic, like technology, history, and even psychology. Also, they need to use lots of software to finish some assignments and projects, so the use of computer is inevitable. For example, I am an economics major, and I need to use statistical software to analyze data, obviously, I cannot do that without the computer.
1. Some people make decisions depending on themselves, while others tend to refer to others for advice. Which do you prefer and why?
Actually, I prefer to refer to others for advice. First off, I can get advice from seniors, they have richer life experience than young people, including good and bad ones. By learning from their experience, we can avoid previous mistakes. Also, it teaches me to be a humble and modest person so I can hunker down and be successful. Most importantly, everybody needs assurance, or a better way to do things and someone out there is always better than you at something. For example, you can ask advice from a doctor if you have a medical condition, one can ask a professor for advice if you have a hard time to decide which topic to write about for a term paper.
1. Some people prefer to write many short assignments for a semester, other prefer to write one or two long assignments for a semester. Which do you prefer? Explain why.
Personally, I prefer to write several short assignments instead of one or two long assignments. To begin with, I don't want to be overly stressed out when the big assignments are about to be due, long assignments are likely to be tough to deal with, actually, as the saying goes, 'Don't put all of your eggs in one basket', by writing short assignments, I can spread the risk, also I will not be worn out, since short assignments are much easier to deal with. By doing assignment this way, I can avoid serious time conflict when other big projects are due at the same time together with the big assignments.
1. When you take a trip, do you prefer to just look around, or do you prefer to take pictures and keep a journal on the trip?
Well, personally, I prefer to take pictures and keep a journal when traveling. First off, taking photographs to record the sceneries and the people you have met during the trip can be great reminisce of the past. I can write down my personal thoughts and what I learned about yourself and about the world. Having a record of your travels is going to come in handy when you’re senile and your grandkids want to know about your life. Additionally, Your journal can be a detailed itinerary, so when your friend asks for advice on a place you visited, you can pull out your journal and actually help instead of saying, ’it was so long ago, I don’t remember!’
