Study the following set of cartoons carefully and write an essay in which you should
1) describe the cartoons,
2) state its main idea, and give your comment.
These two cartoons show two contrasting scenes. While the male student spends all his time and money playing Internet games, the female student studies diligently. One could easily argue that a bright future awaits the students who study hard, while those who waste tuition playing games have little to look forward to. The above images encourage students to value their time in school and take advantage of educational opportunities.While students dream of being accepted into college for years, they often become lost once admitted. Without their parents‘ constant support and advice, or because of limited communication with teachers, many students are unable to focus on their future goals. Such confusion leads some to forget their studies and resort to play-ing on the Internet, among other forms of recreation.
Students should not only keep their ambitions in mind, but also seriously strive towards them. Without a clear purpose, one might easily waste crucial years neglecting one‘s studies. Constantly playing on the Internet leads to failure, while continuously studying guarantees success. Students need to appreciate thei-r time in school, and work hard in order to ensure a good future.
As can be seen from the cartoons, different students may have different ways on how to spend their college days: a boy student indulges himself in computer games, wasting money and time; while a girl student buries herself in a large pile of books, striving to get prepared for the future.
After the fierce competition in the entrance examination, some students may have the illusion that they are secure at last in college. Therefore they do not concentrate on their studies and waste money and time. Needless to say, we all have the right to choose our own way of life. However, college students should define and realize their goals. Time in college is one of the most important periods in our life when we can further prepare ourselves academically for a successful future; therefore we should make the most of it when we have this opportunity. Setting goals is an active way of living. Generally speaking, people are better motivated when they want to attain the goal they set for themselves and have a sense of fulfillment when they succeed. This is true for college students as well.
Success requires both setting goals and working hard. Setting goals for our time in college will ensure our chances of success at a time when we should challenge and exert ourselves.
