I’d like to talk about the experience I had on a plane when I was travelling to Hainan, which is the southernmost part of China. It was a long flight that lasted for almost 5 hours. I felt really bored when I was on the plane, but we all know that we are not allowed to use the phone when we are up there, not even if the phone is on flight mode. Luckily I got a window seat, so I could look out of the window and admire the views from time to time. However, the view could become less appealing when you spent hours looking at it. The only thing I could do is to read the magazines they offered on the plane, but I’m a fast reader, it only took me half an hour to finish the whole magazine, and I have to say, it was not entertaining at all. And it made me kind of sleepy, so I just fell asleep. When I woke up, I found out it would still take an hour before we could land. So… well, I’m not proud of what I did next, but I was bored to death. So despite the rule, I took out my phone, and started to play video games. Unfortunately, one of the flight attendants noticed what I was doing, and she stopped me immediately. She asked me politely to turn off my phone. So I went back to my nap, ‘cause there was nothing else left for me to do.
Although it was a 5-hour journey, I felt as if it took me a whole day. I just can’t imagine how I survived the long flight without my phone.
1. flight mode也可以叫airplane mode或者offline mode，就是我们常说的“飞行模式”。
2. Window seat就是靠窗的座位，餐厅靠窗的座位也可以这么说。
3. Admire后面除了可以接人，也可以用于表示to look at something and think that it is attractive and/or impressive. 所以我们说“欣赏美景”用这个就很合适了。再例如：He stood back to admire his handiwork. 或者I’ve just been admiring your new car.
4. 一般在描写不让用手机的时候，可能很多情况下需要用到“无聊”这个形容词，我们不要只会说bored、boring，一定记得勤替换。例如可以用mind-numbing替换boring，用bored to death/tears或者bored out of my mind来替换bored.
