Graduation Ceremony
 
Drizella, Cinderella’s stepsister is running off with Cinderella’s valedictory speech in her hand. “Give it back to me!” Cinderella yells. “Blah, blah, blah.” Drizella doesn’t listen. Instead, she tears up the written speech. “No! Why did you do that?!” Cinderella shouts. “Ella, calm down. Driz, you’ve gone too far!” Anastasia says scaredly as her sisters continue yelling at each other. “You’re a daughter of a servant, you don’t need that graduation speech!” Drizella yells. “Don’t make fun of my mother!” Cinderella shouts. “Cinderella, shut up!” Her stepmother comes out of her room.
“You woke me up with all your yellings, do you even have respects to me as your mother?” She scolds Cinderella. “I’m sorry mom, but we-“ “No buts! You’re grounded from the ceremony!” As her stepmother says that, she feels shocked. ‘There’s no way she can just do that! This is a once in a lifetime graduation ceremony! If Drizella didn’t rip her speech and insult her mother, she wouldn’t shout as loudly as what it takes to wake her stepmother! This is very unfair!’ She thought. Drizella, Anastasia and their mother go out from the house and locked her in. Cinderella feels so upset. She can still see Drizella staring at her through the window, looking all jealous and hateful. Beside Drizella, Anastasia looks sad to see their fight.
 
Cinderella is getting ready for the graduation ceremony. She’s the year’s class valedictory. “Congratulation for being the best student, you deserve it.” Anastasia praises her. Drizella feels jealous. “She cheats all the time!” Drizella shouts. “It’s not true!” Cinderella says.
 
Anastasia loves both Cinderella and Drizella. Drizella is often jealous of Cinderella. Their mother takes Drizella’s side. The family’s condition has become like that since Anastasia, Drizella and Cinderella’s father passed away when they were little Cinderella really wants to go to the ceremony. Her speech is torn up, but that’s not the problem. She already remembers it in her mind. The problem is, she doesn’t know how to get out of the locked house. She walks around, looking for a way out. She sighs frustratedly when she can’t find any. She finally decides to break the window after she realizes how important the graduation is for her. She goes to the school, arriving precisely at her turn to read the speech. Her sisters and stepmother expects Cinderella not to be there, missing her chance to speak on the stage. Anastasia feels sorry for her, knowing how hard she has worked to get the best score. When Anastasia is just about to blame Drizella and her mother about her stepsister’s absence, Cinderella walks up to the stage, a little bit panting as if she ran all the way here, but the excitement is still shown through her face. Drizella, Anastasia and their mother are surprised to see her.
 
Drizella’s expression turns glum. But when Cinderella thanks all her family in her speech, she feels happy that Cinderella still sees her as her sister, no more hatred attached. Drizella also feels bad thinking about the tragedy this morning. As Cinderella comes down the stage, Drizella approaches her and apologize. “I’m sorry for being rude earlier. Congratulations.” She hugs Cinderella. “Me too, Drizella. Thank you.” She replies. Her stepmother follows behind Drizella. “Cinderella, I am sorry for what I did. I’m proud of you for doing your best at school.” She says. “That’s okay, mother. I’m sorry too.” Anastasia no longer feels sad about her family.

Friends are like Stocks

Friends are like stocks

We buy stocks as investment, and so do friends. Investment is useful for our future. It’s supposed to enable us to live a better life in our old days. Friends are expected to work the same way. We make friends to help us in our life, hopefully till we grow old. Good friends are expected to be there for us when we need them, and vice versa. However, not all stocks are valuable for us to keep. Sometimes, we have to let them go for some reasons.

Some friends are like blue chips. This kind of friends are highly valuable. It’s value may keep increasing with time. We may get value security just by keeping them as they are much in demand and are sought after. They are difficult to get and cost a lot since they are the most stable stocks. This kind of friends are those who we can rely on in any situation. These friends will be their when we need them the most. They never fail you or try to hurt you, when others leave you. They are there for us when the rest of the world against you. We earn much benefit by keeping this kind of friends. Therefore, you definitely don’t want to lose them, and only let them go if you don’t have any other options.

Some other friends are like LQ45. This kind of friends are relatively safe to keep, but they don’t worth a lot. This kind of friends are those who you need when you socialize and you don’t want to embarrass yourself in front of others. They are not quite reliable, but still you may have good companies. So, even if you have to let them go, it won’t hurt you a lot or cause you lose much.

The rest kind of friends are small fry stocks. These kind of friends don’t worth much at all. You buy them only to get short term benefit and you don’t want to keep them in long time. They tend to worth less if something goes bad. This kind of friends only cause you more harm than good. They bail themselves form you when something bad comes to you. They are the first to join the band wagon if you are down on your luck and when others point fingers at you. With these sorts, you feel a lot better if you don’t have them in your possession.

All in all, having friends is a great thing for your future life, however choose your sort of friends wisely as you don’t want to suffer in the future because you choose wrong sort of investment. Get as many friends as possible, and make sure you get the ones with high values.
