Speaking

what are you used to do in the morning?
I am used to brushing my teeth first in the morning, I then pick the clothes I want to wear, go to peepee, have breakfast, put on makeup and go to work

what do you used to do in your free time?
I used to play badminton before, but now I don’t play anymore. I used to work for Tesco, now I choose Zara.

At work, when I look up to the window, I can see the Oriental Tower. It make you feel a good mood. Before the window, there is a boy who is very handsome, sit before the window. When you look out beautiful city and handsome boy, it’s a good day. The handsome boy is married.

I reject to blind date, because I think it’s weird. Two people don’t know each other, and they just show something can be worth by price. “do you have house, do you have car, what’s your salary, what do your parents do?” So I don’t like it. Sometimes I go to hiking to meet some new people, but most of the people like hiking is middle-aged. This is a problem, I don’t meet people by another hobby. I don’t know how to meet some people.

At work, when I look out to the window, I can see the Oriental Tower. It make you in a good mood. in front of the window, there is a handsome boy who is very handsome, sits before the window. When you look out the view and see beautiful city and handsome boy, it’s a good day. The handsome boy is married.

I rejected to many blind dates, because I think it’s weird. Two people who don’t know each other have to show their values. and they just show something can be worth by price. “do you have house, do you have a car, what’s your salary, what do your parents do?” So I don’t like it. Sometimes I go to hiking to meet some new people, but most of the people who like hiking are middle-aged. This is a problem, I don’t meet people outside my own circle/ comfort zone. I don’t know how to meet other people.
