Expand one's horizons
作为万能理由的第一条，expand one's horizons 绝对是不二之选。究其本意，单数的horizon 是“地平线、海平线”的意思，但复数的horizons 却指人们的“眼界、视野”，其英文注释为：The limit of your ideas, knowledge and experience. 略举一例：World history is a course of study that will broaden your horizons.

It occurs to me that Mr. Bean is the person who always makes me laugh. Mr. Bean rarely speaks, but his exaggerated/odd facial expressions usually make me burst into laughter. He usually misbehaves himself, for example, he once drops his coffee on a man’s laptop and then lets someone else take the blame. Besides, his ignorance of what’s going on around him also appears to be funny to me. For instance, in one scene, while Mr. Bean is driving, he falls asleep at the wheel.
I keep several Mr. Bean series in my computer, and when I feel upset or low, or want to have a study break, I usually open the files and watch a few episodes. His zany behaviors never fail to make me laugh.
(备注：素材中选取的人物是Mr. Beans，大家在练习的时候，针对不同的题目，可以把人物换成不同的对象，比如my father，my friend等等)
