阅读下面短文，按照句子结构的语法性和上下文连贯的要求，在空格处填入一个适当的词或使用括号中词语的正确形式填空。 （1） If you want to work as an artist and you are making a living as a waiter， don’t think of yourself as a waiter 16 hopes one day to become an artist. That puts the work you love somewhere off 17 the distant future. Rather， think yourself as 18 artist， supporting yourself by waiting tables and paint， or draw as much as you can. 19 is possible to earn a living wage as a waiter working 24 hours a week. That leaves plenty of time to devote to 20 （train） or developing your craft in the off hours.
While seeking the work that you love， it helps to expand your 21 （aware） into the universe of all possibilities. You don’t want to be limited to the ideas of 22 you should do 23 what you have done before. Having opened all the possibilities， you can make a final decision and select the work you love as
Doing the work you love requires that you 25 （be） equally comfortable with the imaginative and the practical. It requires the ability to dream big dreams and the ability to face and master all the little details.
When I was about twelve， I suddenly developed a great passion for writing poetry. I gave up all my
16 hobbies， such as playing computer games， collecting foreign coins and stamps， and 17 （spend） all my spare time reading poetry and writing it. This habit of writing poetry on every possible occasion soon got 18 into trouble at school. If a lesson didn’t interest me， I would take out my notebook and start writing poems 19 class. Of course， I did this very 20 （cautious）， but it was not long before I got caught. One day 21 I was busy writing a poem during a geography lesson， I looked up to find the teacher 22 （stand） over me， staring with anger because I was not paying attention. He tore the poem up， with a warning not to waste time in his class. All the same I was convinced that I had written a good poem， 23 that evening I wrote it out again from memory. Not long after， I read about a poem contest and I decided to send in my poem. Weeks later， long after I had given up hope， I got 24 letter informing me I had won the first prize. Everyone at school was very impressed except the geography teacher， 25 watched me more carefully than ever. He was quite determined that I was not going to write poetry in his lesson.
They should be in the prime of their lives， but instead， those in 16 twenties and thirties are in worse health than their parents， a British survey has found. Binge（狂饮）drinking， ready meals and a lack of exercise are all harmful to their health. As a result，the young are 17 likely to have migraines（偏头痛）， catch 18 cold or become stressed than the over-55s. According to the research， nearly a quarter of the young 19 （regular）have headaches or migraines， 20 （compare） to just 14 percent of over-55s. And they are almost twice as likely to have high stress levels. And 21 it comes to alcohol， 20 percent of the over-55s don’t drink what they like， while just 10 per cent of those aged 18-34 keep themselves from taking alcoholic drinks.
Six 22 ten of the elderly make fresh meals every day， compared to less than a third of the young. What’s more， almost 10 percent of 23 admit to eating ready meals for every meal — and two percent say they only eat at restaurants.
The older generation 24 （be）also more likely to take a healthy amount of exercise， with 12 percent spending at least 30 minutes doing so each day. They may appear fitter， 25 only nine percent of the young do that. Chris Steele， the resident doctor on this morning’s TV programme， said：“I have seen a rise in young people suffering from illness such as colds， flu and headaches.”
The world is divided into two main parts. The difference is 16 one part is rich and the other is poor. In the poor part， a lot of people never get enough
17 （eat）. In the rich part， a lot of people eat too much. In one part， children starve and in the
18 ， a lot of people get 19 （fat）and have to go on diet， or do some exercise in order to lose weight.
The poor countries 20 （call） the developing countries. They have special problems. Sometimes the land is too poor to grow anything on. The land can be improved， but a lot of things must be done first. Now farming methods must be introduced. The people must be educated. Water must be found.
Many of these problems are too big 21 one country to solve alone. Help should be given by richer countries， but it must be the right sort of help. Money is not enough. The developing countries must be helped to help 22 . 23 rich countries have problems too. They are not always very pleasant to live in.
24 （usual）， it is the things 25 make them rich and that also make them unpleasant.
It also happens that while we in China are organized to fight the worst snow disaster in memory， many people in the United States are celebrating the 30th anniversary of another snow crisis.
Going down in history as the “Great Blizzard（暴风雪）of 1978”， 16 “white hurricane” that swept North America late January and early February 30 years ago left many Americans with no power， no heat， 17 no transportation for days or weeks on end. People 18 （trap） in their houses or offices or on roads. A state of emergency was declared in several states， and National Guard troops were called in to aid trapped people 19 highways. Many Americans 20 lived through the blizzard have never forgotten it， nor will the Chinese people forget their snow disaster 30 years later.
Statistics show that the1978 blizzard caused ￥500 million in damages 21 Massachusetts alone.
22 is not yet known how much the ongoing snow disaster will cost China， but it is certain that we will be a bit 23 （hard） since it struck right in the middle of the peak travel time for the country’s most important festival. And the snowstorms have hit parts of the country 24 such weather is rare.
What is noteworthy is the similarity of the challenges 25 （create） by the two crises， though they are separated by three decades.
Blind from birth， I have never had the opportunity to see myself. And I have been 16 （complete） dependent on the image I create in the eye of the observer.
There are those 17 think that since I can’t see， I obviously also cannot hear. Very often people will talk with me at 18 top of their lungs， pronouncing each word very carefully. People will also often whisper， 19 （think） that since my eyes don’t work， my ears don’t either. For example， when I go to the airport and ask the ticket agent for assistance to the plane， he or she will always pick 20 the phone， call a ground hostess and whisper：“Hi， Jane， we’ve got a disabled here.”
On the other hand， 21 know that of course I can hear， but believe that I can’t talk. Often， therefore， when my wife and I go out to dinner， a waiter or waitress will ask Kit if “he would like a drink” to which I respond that “indeed he would.”
The toughest misunderstanding of all is the view that 22 I can’t see， I can’t work. I 23 （turn） down by over forty law firms because of my blindness， even though 24 qualifications included a degree from Harvard College 25 a good ranking in my Harvard Law school class. Fortunately， this view of limitation and exclusion（排斥） is beginning to change...
Mrs Smith is going shopping with her son. They are looking for a present for Mr Smith’s birthday. Mrs Smith wants 16 （buy） him a new camera and Tom wants to buy him a jumper.
They drive to the department store on the high street. Mrs Smith uses the lift to go to the Electrical Department on the third floor and Tom takes the stairs up 17 the Men’s Clothing Department on the first floor.
When she gets to the Electrical Department， she finds that cameras 18 （sell） in the Photography Department on 19 ground floor. She takes the elevator down and asks the sales 20 （assist）there for some help. She doesn’t know much 21 cameras and needs some advice. He recommends an automatic camera by Olympus， but 22 is too expensive. She asks him if he has anything a little 23 （cheap） and he tells her about a special offer on the Pentax range. It still seems expensive so she thanks the assistant and decides to shop around first. Meanwhile， Tom is looking at the jumpers. He only has ￡10 to spend 24 he can’t afford most of them. He sees his mother and 25 decide to go to the smaller shops round the corner.
My parents have certainly had their troubles， and as their child I’ll never know how they made it to 38 years of marriage. They loved each other，but they didn’t seem to like each other. Dad was too fond
16 his beer and he talked down to Mom a lot. When she tried to stand up to him， 17 fight would follow. I remember Mom once coming 18 （visit） my sister Leslie and me when we were both at university. She told us that she and Dad were splitting. But finally our parents stayed together because of their faith. They believed somehow that God had a reason 19 them to remain married，and resigned themselves to sharing their lives but 20 （perfect）. The things didn’t change 21 Dad discovered that he had kidney（肾） disease. Among the years of multiple surgeries for the disease，mother was still at his side and even donated
22 kidney to him. All of a sudden， the only thing 23 seemed to matter to Dad was telling the world 24 a wonderful thing Mom was doing for him. A month before the surgery， he 25 （send） her birthday flowers with a note saying， “I love you and I love your kidney！ Thank you！”
It all began as we were standing in front of the bathroom mirror， Amanda was a cute girl， 16 （have） blonde hair. I said， “I love you， Amanda.” “And， I love you，” she replied. “Oh， yeah，” I taunted. “Well， I love you more.” Her eyes 17 （light） up as she recognized the cue for the start of another “I love you more” match. “Nuh-uh，” she laughed， “I love you the most.” “I love you 18 （big） than a volcano！” I countered—a favorite family phrase in these battles of love. “But， Mom， I love you 19 here to China.” A country she’s learning about from our new neighbors up the street. We volleyed back and forth a few favorite lines. “I love you more than peanut butter.”“Well， I love you more than television.”“I even love you more than bubble gum（泡泡糖）.” It was my turn again， 20 I made the move that usually brings victory. “I love you bigger than 21 universe！” On this day， 22 ， Amanda was not going to give up. I could see she was thinking. “Mom，” she said 23 a quiet voice， “I love you more than myself.” I stopped. Dumbfounded，overwhelmed by her 24 （sincere）. Here I thought I knew more than she did. I thought I knew at least everything that she knew. However， my four-year-old daughter knows more about love than 25 28-year-old mom. （由肇庆市四会中学赖梅均老师原创）
