opportunity(机会). Everyone was afraid of SARS, so I stayed at home with to do. My father brought me a Japanese book. ―Why don’t you translate(翻译) it into Chinese? It will be better than computer games all day.‖ I promised(许诺) to do 2,000 words each day. But I found it was hard to keep the promise. One day in May, the weather was beautiful. But I couldn’t go out. Those 2,000 words were still me. After translating only three pages, I already lost interest in the book. I looked at it for a long time. But I couldn’t make myself turn the pages. How wished I could just go outside and football with my friends! I counted the words again and again. I just wanted to give up. I felt as if two people were fighting my mind. One said, ―Don’t give up! Keep working hard, and you’ll do well!‖ But then the other one said, ―Go and play! It will be more than translating. Do your work tomorrow.‖ I stood up and would the computer. But then I remember my parents had told me: ―Whatever you do, don’t stop halfway.‖ So I sat down and went on with it.
