某英文报社组织了题为“我喜欢的英语谚语 ” 征文活动，你有意参加。请从下面两句谚语中任选一句作为标题写一篇英语作文，内容须包括：
a) A friend in need is a friend indeed.
b) Where there’s a will, there‘s a way.
A Friend in Need Is a Friend Indeed
A life without friends is a life without sunshine! Friends try their best to help you without thinking of what they can get from it.
Once I doubted the usefulness of study, losing my interests and direction, even confidence. Finally, I decided to stop studying. After knowing the news, my friend encouraged me patiently. She insisted on persuading me until I promised to give up this thought.
Later, I made up my mind to study hard so as to enter my dream university.
Many people will be in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. True friends always come to you when you need help.
Where There’s a Will, There’s a way
Among all the instructive proverbs, the one I like most is “Where there is a way, there is a way”, which tells us that we should stick to our dreams.
For me the saying has special meaning. When I was in Junior Middle School , I was so poor in my studies that I nearly gave up. But my head-teacher was always there and give me confidence every time I lost heart. He used to say, “A little more effort and you will make it”Thanks to my dearest teacher, all my efforts paid off and finally I became a top student.
Nothing is impossible to a willing heart. As long as you keep trying, you’ll make it.
1. With the economy developing rapidly, I’m glad to see our city is taking on a new look.
2. Over the past twenty years or so, great changes have taken place in our life.
3. Tired as I was, I never felt so happy.
I often imagine what my life will be like in the future. I would like to give a general picture of my future life in ten years.
First of all, I will have a warm family where family members will love each other and care about each other. As for me, since being a teacher is my dream, I’m sure that this dream will come true then. I wish to teach foreign students traditional Chinese culture in a college at that time and I will certainly introduce China to the world. Time permitting，I expect to have more spare time to spend with my friends so that we can have a better relationship.
Such will be my future life, the one I have been dreaming of.
1. As the saying goes, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. 俗话有说，入乡随俗。
2. It takes over ten experts and professors four years to finish this dictionary.

假如你是育才中学学生会主席李华，针对目前一些地方血库纷纷告急的情况，请参照以下提示，用英文写一份倡议书，提倡无偿献血 (donate blood for free)
Recently some blood banks across the country are reported to be in short supply of blood.
Some people hold the wrong idea that donating blood does harm to the donor’s health. But the truth is that when a small amount of blood is taken out, the body will make a quick adjustment to work normally.
As we know, donating blood is of great importance. Blood is important to patients, without which many can’t survive. Among young people like us, donating blood is a social responsibility.
We senior high school students, who have a better understanding of medical knowledge, should set a good example for other people. From now on, our school will hold a series of activities to explain the benefits of donating blood.
Donate now and save a life!
