Homework


Describe your perfect life. Anything is possible.

Writing

For me, I don’t agree that borrow money and have beauty surgery. As I know more and more young girls borrow money from on line p2p lender with high interest. I think it is riskier to borrow money on line than borrow money from bank . If you want to have beauty surgery , it is OK just for your health and physical defect. For example, your noes was hurt and need to correct it. And plan it within your financial abilities. More and more people have beauty surgery just because of social pressure. Losing their own character/personality(?). The beauty of people comes from self-cultivation
