پاسخ نمونه بخش ۲

There have been a lot of really happy moments in my life, and usually I’ll try to take a photo whenever there’s a moment that I want to remember.
One that comes to mind is the day I adopted my dog. It was a fairly unplanned event and the day he came home with me was rather unexpected.
When I was a kid, I’d repeatedly ask my parents for a puppy. For one reason or another they’d say no. I was always a little heartbroken when I’d see my friends with their dogs. Whenever I could I’d pet and play catch with other people’s dogs, but I never had my own.
When I grew up I moved around quite a lot and didn’t feel like it was the right time. I knew dogs need stability, and it’s really hard to travel or move when you have an animal to care for. But I knew that one day I’d adopt a dog of my own.
That time came about six months ago. I was living in my own apartment, rather than sharing with housemates, and knew I’d be staying put for quite a while. I was confident I’d be able to give a dog the home it deserves, but the idea was still in the back of my mind and I hadn’t gotten around to going to a shelter or looking online for one.
One day I was in a department store looking for something else when I stumbled across the pet aisle. There were squeaky toys, big fluffy dog beds, and the cutest food bowls. I smiled as I ran my hand over the dog beds and had a look online for where the nearest shelter was.
I ordered a taxi to the shelter and looked at the dogs that were barking and trying to be adopted. There was one that didn’t bark, but looked up at me with the cutest puppy dog eyes. I knew he was the one I wanted.
The volunteer that was working at the shelter took him out and let us play with each other to see if we’d be a good fit. It was love at first sight and I knew this was the dog I’d been waiting for all these years.
The volunteer and I signed the adoption paperwork, took him to the vet for one last checkup before he left, and handed him to me.
I couldn’t have been more excited because I finally had a dog of my own.

پاسخ نمونه بخش ۳

Are people today happier than people in the past?

آیا امروزه افراد خوشحال تر از مردمان قدیم هستند؟

I think in some ways yes, and in some ways no.
Social media, for example, has changed a lot about how we live. For the most part it’s helped people stay connected with their loved ones, however there is a dark side to it.
A lot of people will only post the best parts of their life on social media. They may only post their vacation photos, post about life events such as their upcoming wedding, or successes they’ve had at work. This can lead to a lot of people feeling inadequate and like they’re missing out on life, which isn’t true at all.
I think that people nowadays have it better than ever. Modern medicine can help people lead healthier and happier lives, free from diseases that would have plagued people in the past. They’re able to live life with more conveniences, and have just about everything they want at their fingertips because of the internet, which can lead to greater happiness.

Who do you like to celebrate with more: friends or family?

بیشتر دوست داری با کدام موقعیتی را جشن بگیری: دوستان یا خانواده؟

I think it’s important to celebrate with both, and I certainly enjoy both my friends and family pretty much equally. However, I live thousands of kilometers away from my family, and this makes it difficult to celebrate all but the most important events with them.
I have a broad circle of friends where I live, and so it’s easy to have a party with them, or congratulate a friend on an important milestone.
I do feel like I’m able to let my hair down and relax with my friends more than I can with my family. I’ve always felt like I had to be a little bit reserved around some of my aunts and uncles, but never my close friends.

Can money make people happy?

آیا پول باعث خوشبختی میشود؟

Absolutely. I think if someone doesn’t have enough money it can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety. A lot of broke or poor people are really quite unhappy and having money would make them feel more stable and secure in life; it would alleviate a lot of the problems they’ve been having.
Money itself doesn’t make people happy, but if you have a lot of it you’ll have a lot of options that poorer people won’t. Wealthy people will be able to afford more luxurious vacations and will be able to dine at classier restaurants. I think it’s what you do with money is important, and using it wisely can lead to happiness.

Why are some people unhappy nowadays?

چرا امروزه برخی افراد ناراحت و ناراضی هستند؟

I think it’s for a lot of reasons. As mentioned before, there are lot of people who see the seemingly perfect lives of friends on social media and feel left behind. They don’t realize that it’s just the best parts and these friends will never post about the bad days they have, or the more mundane aspects of their lives.
I think also a lot of people are really stressed out and under a lot of pressure. They feel a lot of anxiety because of their job and end up working harder and harder just to keep up. Maybe they feel like they’re falling behind at university or aren’t achieving certain life milestones at the right times.
Personally I think people on the whole are happier than they were in the past, and the society we live in right now is better than ever.
