When Dr. Gullickson was assigning project mates for his introduction to experimental psychology class, I secretly hoped he would pair me with my best friend or at least a classmate I could have some fun with. Above all, I hoped he wouldn't assign me to work with the intense, fiercely competitive, singularly serious fellow who always wore dark clothes and apparently had a personality to match. As fate would have it, Dr. Gullickson very deliberately matched everyone in class and announced that I would be working with the one person in class I wanted to avoid.
I went up to my new lab mate and introduced myself. He looked at me as though I weren't there. I felt he treated me as though I would hold him back and probably cause his grade-point average to take a nosedive. He wasn't outright mean or abusive. He just gave me the impression he could do whatever project we dreamed up better if he did it alone.
Needless to say, I didn't look forward to an entire term of being brushed off, but I tried to make the best of it and didn’t say anything, lest I make things worse.
The project required each lab team to develop a hypothesis，set up an experiment to test the hypothesis，run the tests，do the statistical analysis and present the findings. Whatever grade the team received would be shared by both students. When my teammate and I met to discuss our project, I was uneasy. Here was this challenging student who had a reputation for single-mindedness and good grades the exact opposite of me. I was outmatched. I actually wanted to drop the class at one point，but stopped short because I didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of my chickening out.
After lengthy discussions，we somehow agreed to do a study on the tactile-kinesthetic perception of space. I wasn’t sure what it meant，but at least we had a topic.

We started to meet regularly to draw up our plans.
One day I got word that he was admitted to hospital for a serious disease.
这篇读后续写属于适应新环境，我觉得大家不需要受到这篇文章出处的影响，设计过于复杂的情节，比如，我这个搭档有女友需要照顾，有高的GPA需要追求，有无数实验需要做，生病了需要做血液透析，等等。相反，我们要把重心放在室友不行了之后，我如何迎难而上的，还有在我们的合作过程之中，我对这个室友印象的改观。即面对室友的掉链子，愚笨和学识有限的我并没有退缩，熬了无数个夜晚做我们的项目，最终获得了A。我没有拖后腿，同时，也赢得了这个之前鄙视我的搭档的尊重和友谊。大家也可以凸显主旨：What did not kill you will make you stronger.
Paragraph 1: We started to meet regularly to draw up our plans.As we discussed hypotheses, designed tests and found tools to collect and analyze our data, I found this guy both agile and sharp-minded. I, by contrast, was always slow in understanding the concepts and functions he raised. However, he seemed to have adapted to my nerdiness and took on more tasks, which should have fallen in my range of responsibility. Gradually, my impression of him started to reverse and I even fondly hoped we could become friends after the project.
Paragraph 2: One day, I got the word that he was admitted to hospital for a serious disease. As it turned out, my teammate was born to suffer a frail heart and the demanding project invited his relapse. Now that the formidable project was falling on my shoulder, I stayed up innumerable nights to run tests and analyze statistics. My effort eventually paid off as Dr. Gullickson awarded us an A, to which my partner grinned in satisfaction. It was then that I realized not only did my tenacity and perseverance live up to his expectation, but also won the ‘impossible’ friendship from this demanding guy/this previously inaccessible guy
