About five years ago I started at a new school when my family moved to Iowa. I was just a little excited, but I worried I would never fit in with (适应) the other sixth graders.
Lucy, a girl in my class, who I thought was not ready for change, didn’t like me from the start. In fact, I was sure she hated me. I could tell she thought I was a fool.
My teacher made us sit by each other for the last term. Lucy was surprised that I didn’t wear make?up (化妆). I didn’t exactly look like the coolest girl. But, I kept smiling at her and I kept telling her she looked beautiful, even when she was angry.
Finally, Lucy let me talk to her, even in sight of her ＂cool＂ friends. She started telling me how beautiful I looked. I still remember that first time when she smiled at me saying that, and I smiled right back, telling her thanks. Lucy invited me over to her house for a party, and talked to me all the time instead of her other friends.
I may move to Arizona after that, but I will never forget Lucy. She was a great friend. I still smiled at Lucy when she made fun of me. I didn’t think she was right in doing those things, but I still put up with (忍受) it. And we became great friends.
About two weeks ago, I read a sentence by Abraham Lincoln, ＂Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends with them?＂ Immediately, I smiled, thinking of Lucy.

The rise in smartphones (智能手机) among young people may be having a direct effect on how successful they become as adults.
Research from the University of Nebraska Lincoln has discovered university students check their phones 11 times per lesson on average, and more than 80 percent believe this tech addiction is interfering with their learning.
A quarter of students across five American states also blamed poor grades in exams specifically on the fact that they used mobile devices when they should have been concentrating and revising and these grades could determine the jobs they end up going into.
Barney McCoy, an associate professor of broadcasting at the university, surveyed 777 students at six universities across five states about how they used digital devices in the classroom.
The students were from UNL, the University of Nebraska Lincoln at Omaha in Nebraska, Morningside College in Iowa, the University of North Carolina, the University of Kansas and the University of Mississippi.
Around two thirds said they used phones, tablets and laptops for ＂non-classroom purposes＂ up to ten times during a typical university day, while 15 percent admitted this figure was closer to 30 times.
Among the top reasons why 55 percent of students checked their devices so regularly were staying connected and fighting boredom. Less than half said the devices were used for classwork.
Texting was the most popular distraction (娱乐) technique at 86 percent, while 68 percent said they used their phones to check personal emails. Two thirds used social networks, 38 percent surfed the web and 8 percent admitted playing games when they should have been studying.
Despite eight out of ten students admitting their devices were distracting, fewer than five percent considered it to be a ＂very big＂ distraction.
＂I don’t think students necessarily think it’s a big problem,＂ said McCoy. ＂They think it’s part of their lives.＂
