I am trying to muster (鼓起) the courage to toss_away my mobile phone to enjoy a more peaceful and ringfree life.
Can you imagine not having your mobile phone? In our hightech，inahurry age，a cellfree life is a hard concept to swallow.Our mobile phones can now access the Internet，and many people feel the need to express their every thought on their blog pages.If I gave up my cellphone，people would think I was mad.
I wish I had the strength to toss away my technology.I have an office phone，a home phone，an email and if people want to contact me，they can.If I’m out，people can leave a message.Do they really need to find me 24/7?However，I’m a bit like Frodo in the movie Lord of the Rings.The power of the ring is too strong and I can’t let it go.
Mobile phones have become necessary tools in our busy life.For most people，they hold all contacts and many of us don’t write up address books any more.The latest phones carry our music，pictures，movies and everything else.We feel lost without this device and when we do misplace it，we feel cut off from our fellow.
“Where have you been?” said a friend，who saw me a week after I lost my cellphone，“I tried calling you，but you disappeared.You disappeared off the face of the Earth.” See，when you don’t have a mobile phone，you don’t exist.
I’m not really going to toss my mobile phone away，in fact.We humans are such social animals and mobile phones serve us well.So in 2009，I’ve decided not to serve my mobile phone.Like all machines，I can always turn it off.

Choosing a nice mountain bike for you is easier than learning how to ride it. Keep these tips in mind：
Decide how you are going to use your new mountain bike.
Are you a new rider who simply wants to travel outdoors on the weekend，weather permitting?Do you intend to test yourself on the rough roads，every day，rain or shine?Or are you going to use your new mountain bike to ride to and from school or work?Be honest about your intentions，and you’re more than half way toward choosing the right mountain bike for you.
Visit your local bike shops.

Don’t be bashful.
Tell your salesperson how you intend to use your new mountain bike，and how much you are willing to spend.Your salesperson will show you a selection of models and brands accordingly.He or she will also help you determine the right size for you.You may ask more without any sense of shyness.
Take a test ride.
All good bike shops let customers take test rides.There’s a good reason for this beyond “trybeforeyoubuy” salesmanship.Since you already know your price range and find the right size，you now have to find out which brand you ride best.They want you to be happy with your purchase.After only a few test rides from more than one bike shop，the right mountain bike will choose you.
