She has my best interest at heart
When getting advice, some people prefer to go to their parents; others prefer to go to their friends. Which one do you prefer?
When I need advice I usually prefer to go to my parents, specifically, I go to my mom. Although my friends can sometimes offer good advice too, my mom would always know how to help me through a situation. She has a lot of life experience because she’s older and she’s already experienced a lot of the problems that I’m experiencing now. For example, she knows more about things such as finances or taxes, that I have no experience in. And, because she’s my mom, I can always trust that she has my best interests at heart, and basically I know that my mom will always try to give me the best advice possible, and that’s not always a guarantee if you’re talking to someone you just met.

1. Mathematics, 2. Painting, 3. Science.

2. Interest e.g. 5, technique
I would like to add art history to my schedule.
First, I can learn more about art if I take art history classes. For example, I can learn more about the sociological, political and religious factors behind each painting. As a result, I can understand the underlying meanings of the artworks better.
Second, I have been interested in art since I was a child. I started to learn drawing when I was only 5 years old. I still draw every now and then today. While appreciating masterpieces by famous painters in the art history class, I could improve my drawing techniques.
So, that’s why I prefer to take art history classes.
