Listen to 1a and answer the following question.
What do you think can affect our feelings? weather, color, environment, moon, music, noise, movie, big event ...
I think the moon can affect my moods. Sometimes it make me feel happy. Sometimes it makes me feel sad, especially when the full moon is hanging in the sky on Mid-autumn Festival. The moon is so round and bright. But I can’t get together with my family. I feel very lonely, and my eyes fill with tears.
The environment can change my feelings. I live in a big city. At night, it’s too noisy for me to fall asleep. I hope to live in the countryside some day. It’s clean and quiet there. I think I will be happier there.
I think the weather can affect my moods. When it rains, I always have sad thoughts. When the sun shines brightly, I feel happy again.
Colors can affect my feelings and moods. Orange and yellow can make me confident and cheer me up when I am feeling sad. Blue and white can make me feel calm. Green is the color of nature. It can give me more energy. Wearing red often makes me active.
Big events can affect me a lot. When I talk about the Wenchuan earthquake with friends, it always makes me sad and worried. But the topic of the Beijing 2008 Olympics always makes me excited and active.
