I have two best friends. Benny is a bit bossy but he is a good friend. I can rely on him. I know that if I have a problem or get in trouble, he will help me. Dave is very quiet. Not a bit selfish. Everybody likes him.

My best friend is Ian. He’s such fun. We have so much in common. We are both football fans, we hate heavy metal and love SF films. It’s never boring with him. Besides, we understand each other very well.

Gemma is my best friend. I love her because she is so interesting and fun. We share things. We even wear each other’s clothes. My sister says we are stupid. But she is a health freak. You know, she does exercise, is a vegetarian, goes to bed early and … always complains about me. Boring, isn’t she?

I don’t know what a good friend is because I don’t have any. The TV and my computer are my best friends. My parents are angry at me. They call me a couch potato because I spend so much time in front of the TV set. They say I should go out and find myself a friend. The truth is I don’t know how to make friends. My classmates call me a computer wizard and they say they admire me. Still, they never invite me to their parties or call me out. I’m very unhappy about that, but I don’t show it.

1. Read the sample of autobiography and consider the questions on page 25.

• I was born on a cold winter night in my native Bennington, Oklahoma. I do not remember much of my early childhood, but my mum said that I was a very active, curious, and communicative child. I would ask dozens of questions each minute, even without waiting for the answers. I suppose that was why my parents offered me books and educational movies as early as my third birthday.

• Fortunately, my thirst for knowledge did not come to an end when I was at school. I was fond of history and science. This passion helped me gain good knowledge in these areas. Today, I am a student at a law school, and I feel very happy about it.

• I am certain that my good results in studies will become my ticket to a better tomorrow. I want to become a lawyer. I study hard and devote my free time to reading reviews and watching interviews with recognized specialists in the field.

• Of course, I understand that life is not just a bed of roses, and challenges or difficulties are an integral element of life. Since my parents could not help me cover my college expenses1 in full, I combine a part-time job and full-time study to earn my living and my educatіon. I feel satisfied at the beginning of every month when I receive my salary2 and plan how I will spend my money.

1expenses [ık'spensız] — витрати

2a salary [sælәrı] — заробітна плата
