Computer games are just fun, I have been playing them for years, and I have become really good at it. Some of my classmates think that I’m write special. What’s so special about that ?
One day I was having lunch at school. Suddenly a girl I didn’t know came and sat next to me “What do you do for fun ?” She asked . “ I am a gamer,” I said in a low voice. “A gamer!” She couldn’t believe what I was saying and she burst into laughter, with all the apple pie out of her mouth.
Most people think gaming is suitable for boys, but not for girls. Maybe I should cut my hair short and change my actions so that I look like a boy.
Actually, most boys don’t feel there is anything wrong with my hobby. I have met many boy gamers— some online and some face-to-face. None of them think badly about me being a girl gamer. I have made some good friends with them.
Playing computer games is also a kind of relaxing. I don’t know why people feel strange about girls who play games. Girls who play games do it for the same reason as boys do: it’s something fun to do in your spare time.

Light travels at a speed which is about a million times faster than that of sound. In one second, light travels about 300,000 kilometers, but sound travels only 340 meters. You can get some ideas of this difference by watching the start of a running match. If you stand quiet far away from the starter, you can see smoke come from his gun before the sound comes to your ears.
The fast speed of light produces some strange facts. Sunlight takes about 8 minutes to reach us. If you look at the light of the moon tonight, remember that the light rays left the moon 1.3 seconds before they reached you. The nearest star is so far away that light which you can see from it tonight started to travel to you 4 years ago at a speed of nearly 2 million kilometers every minute. The light from some of tonight’s stars started on its journey towards you even before you were born.
So, if we want to be honest, we can not say, “The stars are shining brightly tonight.” We have to say, “The stars look nice. They were shining four years ago but their light has just reached our earth.”

Information Age means that information on technology is the first productive
force (第一生产力) in the society. People say that we are in information age because everything that people do depends on information and related technologies. Let’s take everyday life as an example. People watch TV to get news around the world and use satellite to transmit signals (信号). People communicate through telephones and the Internet, which are information technologies.
We can do many things on the Internet. We can read articles, listen to music and watch videos. We can send letters called E-mail. We can buy things. And we can chat (聊天) in the Chatting-room. We can make friends and find a pen pal. We can play games with someone we don’t know. We can also make a long distance phone call by the Internet and it’s very cheap.
But information from the Internet has advantages and disadvantages. First, information from the Internet is always the latest information. Second, information on the Internet is free. You don’t have to pay for reading and getting information. Third, since the Internet is a place for everyone to give his opinions freely, you are able to see different opinions on the same matter. Like two sides of one coin, information on the Internet also has its disadvantages. The Internet is a place where everyone can express himself, though the information may not be true. And something bad or unhealthy may be spread (传播) on the Internet very quickly.
