Model Answer 1:

Oh, I guess the average families usually own something for a long time, such as a vase, a TV set,  a desk, or anything like that. In my family, there is a worn-out bicycle in the balcony that belongs to me for about 15 years.

It is a simple and cheap bike, not like the mountain bikes that are frequently spotted in the streets rode by some teenage. I got it when I passed the entrance examination to the junior middle school with a high score in 1996. There were about 10 kilometers away from the boarding school to my home, and I could ride the bike from and to the school every weekend with my classmates. I really enjoyed the half-hour cycling because I could share interesting things happened during the weekend with my classmates, or when I rode alone, I loved the feeling of the breeze on my face.

After I left home and went to the university, my bicycle was put into the balcony by my parents and barely used. So it’s gathering dust now. Every time I went back to my hometown, I rode it at times to recall the past simple pleasures of student life.
