The person I’d like to talk about is Davy. He helped me a lot when I was
studying in the university. Both of us majored in Math, and he was also my
He was tall, hmm, around 1.79metres. He did know he had some advantages. He
joined the school team to play basketball as a forward. I watched several
matches he was in, and all of our classmates would root for him. He always got
Though he’s awesome, in other aspects too, he’s really humble, for he never
showed off his skills no matter how good he was at it. I quite appreciated that.
He had a good command of computer stuff, and to me, it saved my life at some
moments. Once I was staying up late for my graduation paper, but I don’t know
why somehow my laptop just broke down. I mean, it suddenly turned off, and it
must go wrong for I couldn’t start it. I was driven to mad. What if I lost all
my files, especially my paper? I have to finish it in a day. Tomorrow is the
deadline to hand it in. I felt like it was a doomsday for me. Then, it dawned on
me, Davy! Davy is a computer geek. Maybe he can solve it! I couldn’t wait one
more second and rang him. Thanks god, he answered the phone. After listening to
my “heartbroken” story, he said he would like to help. Then we decided to meet
in the library at 6.00, the opening time of the library. With his efforts for
almost two hours, my laptop could work again. The luckiest thing was all my
files were good. Saying thank you, I grabbed my laptop and rushed back to my
dorm to go on. Everything went well, and I handed in my paper in time.
We would always support each other whenever help is needed. I think we are
really good friends.
