Sample 1: How time flies! It is ( has been ) more than two years since I went to the middle school. Great changes have taken place in myself. As for my appearance, I used to be thin, but now I am fatter. And I used to have long hair because I think having this hair style makes me cute but now I’m wearing short hair in order to spend more time dealing with my lessons. Also my personality has changed a lot, too. For example, I used to be more outgoing in the past than now. It takes me much more time to learn my lessons and I can hardly enjoy myself. As for my behavior, I used not to talk in class, but now I become used to talking actively both in class as well as after class.
Sample 2: I think it ’ s one of my bad changes that should be changed back. When I was in the primary school, I used not to be a fan of sports, but now I ’ m caring about sports so much that I often spend my spare time watching sports matches. I think it proves the saying that time can change everything. I used to get up at about 7 o ’ clock and arrive at school at around 7:40, but now I have to get up at 6:40 and arrive at school twenty minutes earlier. Also, I used to go to school by car in the past, but now I go to school by riding the bike`. I seldom talk with my friends on the phone now though I used to have this habit. What ’ s more, computer is not a big attraction for me anymore but it used to be my favorite. Well, in a word, as time goes by, I ’ m not what I used to be.
