Last year in summer I was going to see my grandparents. When we arrived, we prepared everything to make a campfire outside, I was going to cut the wood but the axe was pretty big and I hit myself in the hand, but it wasn't a big cut and I just used some bandages. It wasn't a big deal but I was very scared and unfortunately I couldn't help anymore

Last December, I lost my gold charm bracelet when I went out with my friends. It's a beautiful gift from my grandmother. I didn't still understand how it disappeared because I wore it for 6 years. When I told my mum about that, I felt she was very sad also. But she comforted me to be more careful next time. And it was so amazing, my mum found and bought another bracelet the same as a lost one. I was happy and grateful for that.

It was a Maths time in my school, I didn't read all the thread and I was the first one rise hand. When the teacher called my name, I stood up and said the wrong answer. Then everyone looking at me, I was very surprised when the teacher said: "It's wrong!". I was very embarrassed, I sat down and didn't say any words with my tablemate. : >

I had a difficult time in the last year at Secondary School. That time, I was one of the best student represented my school participated a contest. My family, teachers, friends believed in me a lot that I could get the prize and I also believed that at least I could get the second prize. However, in my school's festival, I heard the news about the result that I failed,
there was no prize for me. The worst thing was I was the only person of my school didn't have any prize that time. I cried so much. Thankfully, I overcame that sorrow and achieved success in the next competition. I hope that failure will never emerge in my study life next time:((
*My English is not so good. If you read my comment, please help me correct my mistakes. Thanks!*

Hi Tina,

Thanks for your comment. Don't worry about making mistakes - the most important thing is to communicate in English!
