My art class at school, I really like this class, as I really like to draw. Normally the young people memory are very good, and the old people memory are very bad, but my memory is really bad, and I don’t know why. At school I must write my schedule in my calendar, otherwise I will forgot my schedule. Example, when I will go to art class before, I will wrote take paper, pencil, water colorâ¦ in my calendar. If I don’t wrote it, I will forgot take somethings. I think calendar is a good thing, so I will use this forever.
