When I come to middle school, I have make friends with new faces and I learn a lot from them. The most important thing is to be independent. My friends can solve problems by themselves and take care of themselves. In front of these fellows, I start to think of myself. When I meet problems, I will ask for help from my parents immediately. Now I realize that I must learn to be independent. So I want to say something to my parents and have a talk to them. I want to let them know that I have grown up and can do the basic thing by myself. I am learning to be stronger.
