Reading Test

            Although we all agree that Time is the most precious thing in life; unfortunately many people often just waste it carelessly. On the other hand, they try hard not to waste money. You can get the lost money back, but you can never find the lost time again. So, "Time is money" is not quite evident. Therefore, if we value money, we should value time twice more. The "lost time is never found again", but the lost money, more likely is.

            Consequently, young people need to exploit their time wisely. All that they need to do is stop being negative, and start reading books to enrich their general knowledge and to instruct themselves. As they are still students, they should revise their lessons and do homework regularly. They should occupy their time the maximum to be successful in their life. They also ought to participate in volunteering activities in community. When you give a hand to other people, you feel satisfied, and get aware of your importance in society.

            In a word, we must make the most of our time now lest we should regret it in the future.
