Before I go to middle school, I was a lazy girl. I always forgot to do my homework. But since I became a middle school student, I realized that it was time for me to grow up. I needed to be mature. The first thing for me to do was to take care of myself. I learned to wash clothes and cook the basic food, so when my parents weren’t at home, I could solve the problem by myself. They no longer needed to worry about me. I feel so good about the present life. I can make my own decision and learn to be stronger. The progress I made helps me to be a better person.
