Young people usually prefer living in a mordern apartment building as they often take consideration of the fasionable things, while more experienced adults would rather live in a traditional house as they like the feel of family and the quiet atmosphere around the traditional house. For my part,I would like to live in a traditional house.
First of all,there must be a variety of old things in the traditional house, oweing to many years it has passed by. In my opinion, every old thing has an old story. When you take an old book from the bookself which your gradfather has read, when you use the broom your grandmother ever used to clean the house, when you sit on a chair where your mother ever sat to make a sweater for you, I am sure you will feel very warm from the bottom of your heart.
Second, traditional house is often in a quiet district where you can obtain a good chance to relax yourself and think quietly after your work or study. After the temporary relaxion, you will probably have more energy to put into your job or study.
Third, since it is a traditional house, there must be a good neibourhood around it. If you are in some trouble, the neighbors would help you, and you will feel convenient and joyful living in the traditional house. On the other hand, if you live in the modern apartment building, the relationship between your neighbour and you is so loof that you certainly cannot find warm help as you do in the traditional house.
Admittedly, living in a modern apartment building has a few positive factors, such as, it may be near your work palce, you can save time and money on transportation, you would live closer to modern life, and so on. However, at the same time you will not feel the warmness of the people`s relationship. So if we take a careful consideration, it is not difficult to get he conclusion: living tin the traditional house is your sagacious choice!

Any opinion is, in fact, a judgment. I feel that as Americans we would do well to judge others less often. Still, we must be able to decide whom to spend our time with and whom we`d rather forget. In my opinion, this type of judgment is best after we get to know other people. […]
