The latest handcrafted present I received is a card for new year, which was made by my younger cousin. She made it with paperboard and some pictures drawn by her was everywhere on the card, most of which were red hearts. Despite the drawings, there were another fantastic part. On the cover of the card was a paper flower with several tiers which was a hard project for my little cousin. It is true that the gift was not delicate enough, but what I got was more than a card. With online shopping becoming more and more popular, it is convenient for everyone to buy everything anytime. When people can make things done with money, few will spend time to get the same result. Gifts themselves are gradually replaced by red packet, not to say gifts made by hand. Therefore, it can be easily realized how surprised I was when I received a present filled with love and caring on New Year’s Day. Maybe things made by hand are always rough, but they are priceless for the sincerity of its maker.
Actually I am a person with a bad habit, procrastination. There are plenty of situations that I didn’t have enough time for, though there shouldn’t have been. I am not going to mention them, because I am trying hard to get rid of the habit. An truly urgent situation which impressed me is the debating I joined during my high school life. The contests were intensive and our rivals were strong. What’s worse, due to some accidental problem, my fellows and I were all from different schools. We hadn’t met each other before and built the team temporarily. We needed more time to become familiar with each other and decide the best part for each one every time we picked a new topic. So in the first round, I nearly gave up, since we spent so much time on the primary preparation which was unnecessary for other teams and no time left to discuss the topic. Luckily, our performance was not bad and our opponents were really nervous. We came into the next turn, which inspired me a lot. Even though we finally failed in the last debates, missing the first prize, I could hardly be frustrated, because all the achievements we got was out of expectation.
