Out of trouble

One of my friends, Willy, always get into trouble. He's called the trouble maker by the people who knows him, but he always can solve most of them. Once when we had a long holidays, he enjoyed his break time a lot until the last day when he found that the homeworks were too many for him to finish in a day. He was worry but he made a plan as fast as possible. The next day, he went to school and started to copy others. He chose different teachers' patience to finish his homework and even the short break time. If the class was in the morning, he would do them first. But sometimes he didnt have time to finish them all, and he would borrow the other classmates' work books to let the teacher check after the teacher walked past other row. Sometimes he missed and was gotten by teachers, but his excuses can save his life. Though he is lazy and bored, he still get good grades on the exam.

At the night, when I was studying at school, the sky looked looked just like it does on a normal weekday. Our classroom was still quiet as usual. While we were focused on our work, something happened. Suddenly, the whole building started shaking and the floor moved up and down. All at once, my classmates started to scream and run out of the classroom as fast as they could. The books on the bookcase began to fall and all the junk were fell from the garbage and fell over the floor. After thirty seconds, it was still shaking and the yelling hadn't stopped yet. I was afraid that our old school couldn't withstand this hard attack. I also wanted to escape right away, but our wise teacher asked us to calm down. Soon it stopped, but I won't forget this experience for the rest of my life.

The worst school anniversary celebration of the school

 Last Thursday was our school's thirty-fifth birthday, so our school decided to hold the anniversary celebration differently, with a two-day program. About three mouths ago, they started planning the whole program. First, the PTA spent a lot of money on modernizing the classrooms. But only a very few classrooms get this equipment and it was always locked up. Then the student association and the principal painted some unsightly animal art, where the leopards became cows and the tigers had a lot of  large pocks on their bodies. On the day, most students had nothing to do except dozing and sleeping because the school prohibited from us bringing mp3, comics, pokes, psp and other eletronic things. Although some class can bring all of them, they still needed to watch out for the other teachers. Boring programs and the boring emcees made the celebration into lesable. The next day, the morning program had already  finished by ten thirty so the teachers held an impromtu KTV on the playground.The rain started to fall in the afternoon but the most important program, the relay, hadn't started yet.We had to stay in the classroom until 5 o'clock. This was the worst school celebration of my life and I still can't understand why they didn't hold the relay in the morning!

Embarrasing experience

There is one day that I won't forget for thr rest of my life. That's the afternoon I was practicing in the swimming pool. It was our school team's training time and the coach was there, too. We always swam a lot and for a long time. All of my friends liked to trick the others during the break time. On that day, someone showed us a new way to use the swimming caps. He made a strange sound with it. When he put it near his bottom, it made a sound just like a fart. After the short break time, we often had timed races. I borrowed the swimming cap and tried to make the same sound, but suddenly there was a loud sound: Boom! My face quickly turned white and soon turned to green and I looked at the two pieces of the cap in my hands. It was his time to race. This is the moment that I will remember the rest of my life.

Embarrasing experience

That day was the day I won't forget in my whole life. That's the afternoon of a cold sunny day when I was practicing in the swimming pool. It's our school team's trainning time and the coach was there,too. We always swam a lots for a long time. All of my friends liked to trick the others during the break time and the day someone showed us a new way to use the swamming caps. He made the strange sound by it and when you put it near the bottom that would just like the fart sound. After the short break time we often had the time racing. And then I borrowed the swimming cap and try to make the same sound, suddenly a large sound appeared, boom! My face turned in white and soon turned to green and I looked at the two pieces of the cap in my hands. And the time which is also his turn for the time race. I think people would know what will happen to me in the next second. It was the moment that I will remember in less of my life.

Pop music

Both classical music and pop music are loved by most people. Different groups have their good reasons for liking them. Classical music makes people forget their stress and they can enjoys everymoment listening to the music. The sounds are soft, beautiful and often give you a speacial feeling. Sometimes surprising sound effects come with strong parts. Even though it's popular with a lot of people, sometimes it also makes people want to sleep. When you are just hiking in your dream, the music will scare you suddenly with a hard noise. So I like pop music better. It can pump me up. While the music is playing, I'll follow the tempo without using my brain. And then I will jump up and down and feel the power filling my body. That's why I prefer pop music to all the other.   
Korea’s young people during Choson Dynasty

Young people were the pillar of the Choson dynasty. They worked in many different ways to help their country grow stronger and healthier. The things that they worked on always influenced Choson dynasty a lot.


The young people living during the Choson dynasty had known both Confucianism and Buddhism came from China. When more people began be living in Buddhism, it was driven out by the government. The government destroyed temples and stupa, so anyone who had relation with Buddhism was killed during the Choson dynasty. Some of them ran away, but most people gave up and changed their religion quickly.

Choson was interested in Neo- Confucianism and used it to help them rule their country. When the emperor, Hanja, came to the power, Catholicism came into Korea through missionaries from China. They also brought knowledge of Astronomy. Christianity reached its height and even some government ministers began to receive baptism.

A few years later, Catholicism was driven out simply because the Choson dynasty didn’t like Westerners in their country. But the missionaries from China snuck into Korea to do their work anyway. Soon, the government started to kill Catholics including those government ministers. Many promising teenagers were killed;therefore their lives were harsh, and they couldn’t have their own beliefs except Confucianism.


Young people at this time had to follow the government’s order to study. They did this in order to help them to earn money, power, and respect. The government also set up many organizations about Confucianism. They used it to control the country. Confucianism taught that the ruler should be kind and virtus. People needed to study Confucianism, because the Choson dynasty used the same imperial examination as China. People who passed the exam could become scholar-officials. If they wanted to be officials, they needed to devote a lot of time to study. Therefore, they had to follow Confucianism closely; in this way the Confucianism became their main focus.

Art, culture and daily life

Young people’s lives were difficult, because the Japanese pirates always attacked their country. And most of them had to pay with military service or they could pay money and crops. Choson’s young people always wrote poems to express their mood and it named Sijo. They often wrote about the things around them. Most of the poems were about wars and in the daily life. Painting was also important to them, because young people started to have their own style that different from China. Young people’s creations were about not only source material but also the interest filled with the flavor of Choson dynasty.
