The school allows students to keep pets in their dorms. Do you think it is good or not?
I would prefer no pets should be allowed in campus dorms, cuz dorm is supposed to be a quiet place, where students can get some rest from whole day’s study, and pets are generally very messy and noisy, and some people are allergic to them. Additionally, going to college costs a lot and one should prioritize their role as a student and maintain a high GPA, everything else comes after that, I would suggest students should leave the animals home, and I think it is kind of fair to pets, cuz college are busy, one does not have enough time to be with the pets.
Task 2Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: current celebrities (like musicians, actor/actress, athlete) set a good example as role model to the young people.
Personally, celebrities generally do set a good example for the younger generation. Take Kobe Bryant for example, he works very hard to be a better basketball player, he is so determined to win the game that he never gives up even when his team is about to lose, and I think his willpower and perseverance are contagious, teenagers can learn a lot from him. Additionally, despite of his busy schedule as a player, he sometime volunteers in local school and teaches these little kids how to play basketball. The kids can also learn a good lesson here, since we should care and reach out to the community.
Do you agree or disagree that celebrities such as artists and athlete should be the role model for people?
你同意将popular celebrities such as actors and artists音乐人，体育运动员，作为学习的对象吗?【思路】
1. 有些人认为偶像的力量是很强大的，崇拜偶像会给自己带来很多positive energy，如果能有幸见到偶像就会非常激动，这里其实有很多例子可以举，接机，演唱会，见面会等等，可以举出一个具体的人，描述你是如何喜欢他，他如何让你的生活很有动力，甚至学习时很开心。(比如真的有学生说过，她的梦想就是做吴亦凡的经纪人，所以要很努力的学习变得很牛叉)
2. 另一个角度，celebrities like artists and athlete他们的成功很大程度上依靠天分，外表和机遇，所以并不是个人能决定的。其实有很多人，比如说曾经并不知名的科学家屠呦呦，她坚韧不拔的品质是值得学习的。并且，社会主流价值观应该更加推崇靠自己的努力成功的态度，并不应该过多的在意外表和机遇。
学校要求所有学生下一年开始required practice interview 女生不同意。两点原因：1是学生给面试，大家不紧张，也不会认真对待。2 毕业时太忙，有很多其他的事儿要做（paper exam part-time job）

男的问题：concert and audition 冲突了，Solution1 先去audition然后早走去看concert。Solution2 有个second-day audition 劣势：第二天的视镜都是小角色，没有太多台词，not fun
两个Home based small business 的缺点：
1)没有办法分personal life和business(prepare food，来电话时有孩子在哭，not professional，对方也不会信任)2)邻居不开心，(其他人来帮忙，会占用邻居的车位)
