Every year, there are different kinds of beauty pageants and the champions will be definitely the shinning stars. However, as time past, people have seen so many beauties and they start to have higher expectation. Beauty pageant is no longer the big event, and the audience laugh at the result and are picky about these champions. The real beauty should not be defined by appearance.
Recently, a beauty pageant was held in Michigan, America. The girl who was born in China won the champion and became Miss Michigan. It sounded like a great trip for her, but people were critical about her appearance. They said that she was so ugly. However, if the audience had seen the competition, they must appreciate her, because she was very smart and elegant, which made her the shinning star.
The definition of beauty is no longer judged from appearance, and only the charm from inside can make a girl be attractive. Of course, wisdom is also in need, which makes a pretty face stand out, or people will forget it easily.
Consumption is necessary. It promotes the economy. Consumption brings happiness for some people while it brings annoyance for other people, because they think it wastes the money. There are different viewpoints about consumption between the old and young generation. But I think reasonable consumption is the best.
For the old generation, they are very frugal about everything, even the money. They believe that money is used for solving basic needs, and the rest of it should be saved. While for the young generation, they are more likely to use money to find fun. They like to go to the entertainment occasions, such as KTV, or go to barbecue with friends.
The different ways of consumption are influenced by the living situation. The old generation has gone through the hard time, so they don’t have much pursuit for the entertainment, while the young are in the opposited way. Money should be used to improve life standard, or it will lose its meaning. In my opinion, some part of the money is needed to pay for amusement and social communication.
How to Behave Well?
In order to build a civilized city, we students should try our best to behave well in the activities.
It's a good habit to keep our clothes clean and tidy. Our city should be kept clean every day. Don't throw litter or spit about. It's good manners to say "Thank you" and "Please" and so on. We should never say dirty words. Be friendly to others and always ready to help the people in need. For example, when we are on a bus, we should give our seats to the old and the women with babies. We should also obey traffic rules. When the traffic lights are red, we should stop. And we'd better not talk or laugh loudly in public.
If everyone behaves well, our city will be more beautiful and more attractive.
