I had a difficult geography project to finish by the end of the semester. My teacher wanted it to be typewritten, so I went to the school computer room. But when I got there, all the computers were turned off. Apparently there was a recent problem, and technicians were fixing it.

学期末的时候,我要完成一项很难的地理作业。老师想要的是打印版的,所以我去了学校的电脑室。但是当我到达那里的时候,所有的电脑都是关机状态。很明显,最近电脑出现了问题,技术人员正在维修。

I knew of some private study rooms downstairs. They were small and dark, and the computers were very old, but I had no choice. At least the computers were operating correctly. I typed and highlighted the assignment's title: "Evaluate the Government's Response to Global Warming. " But I didn't know what to write in my essay. Finally I decided to find a book to help me. I went to the library, checked the book indexes and eventually found a useful book. Then I returned to the computer.

我知道楼下有几间私人自习室。那里又小又黑,电脑也很旧,但我别无选择,至少那里的计算机运行正常。我输入并增强了作业的标题:“评估政府对全球变暖的反应。”但是我不知道该写什么。最后我决定找一本书来帮助自己。我去了图书馆,查了书的索引,最后找到了一本有用的书。然后我又回到电脑前。

When I looked at the screen, I saw something so weird that I nearly fainted! The essay was complete! Had somebody in cyberspace written it? I didn't know, but I was very happy. I printed it out and handed it in. I got an "A. "

凑近屏幕一看,我看到了一些很奇怪的东西,我差点没晕过去!论文竟然写完了!是有人在网络空间写的吗?我不知道,但我很高兴。我把它打印出来交了上去。我得了“A”。"

After that, I used the computer for all my assignments. I'd type the title, wait awhile, and the computer would do it. Every assignment was perfect; I never had to edit anything. I stopped paying attention to my teacher's lectures and spent my extra time in the gymnasium. And my grades got better and better.
