People nowadays seem to have the sense that their time has become more limited. Compared with early generations we spend more and more time working and have less and less free time to engage in leisure pursues. But this premise turns out to be an illusion. the most comprehensive data from major Time Use Service suggests, if anything, Americans today have more free time than the early generations. The number of hours we work has not changed much, but we spend less time now on home tasks. So we have a great amount of time for leisure than in decades past. so why do we feel like time so scare. One problem is that time becomes more valuable and time becomes more worth money. we feel like we have less of it. workers who bill or get paid by the hour, think employer and fast-food workers, report focusing more on pursuing more money than those who get paid by salary and the fact has been fast. In one experiment, people were told to play the role of consultant and bill their time by either nine dollars an hour or ninety dollars an hour. When people billed their time by ninety dollars an hour they report feeling far more priced for time. Thinking about our time as money, changes are our behavior as well. in one study, people who were instructed to think about money before entering a cafe spent less times chatting with the other patrons and more time working. Those who are thinking their time did reverse spending time socializing instead of working。
I have met so many friends in my college life. They have exertedenormous influence on my life. However, one of my most impressive friends is my roommate, Li Ming。
Question 23 to 25
In the classmeeting on the first day of school, Li Ming did not impress us at all. We started to notice him because he was always late for classes. We were thus impressed by hislaziness. I came to know him and hissituation because we were roommates and spent much time together: his mother was seriously ill and sick abed in long-term, his fatherleft him and his mother mercilessly。
23. what does the speaker say now people feel about time?
Hence, it was him that shoulderedthe heavy burden of taking care of his sick mother supporting the whole family. Finally, under great pressures, hebalanced his life and study perfectly: he wasno longer always late, took good care of his mother and even won the scholarship many years in a row。
24. what do the data from time use service show?
The experience of Li Ming can be one of the most convincing cases of thepower of persistence and will. He left adeep impression and imposed a durable influence on me. Indeed, friend suchas him can be regarded as asset andproperty in our life. We have rights to choose our own friends，but we should also beprudent and sensible enough to choose friends who can bring us “positive energy”. (228 words)
