Speaking

Yesterday we met an Australia person, he doesn’t have Australia accent, not strong. I don’t really want to go back home, it’s annoying during festival. I don’t want stay at home and do nothing. I’m not close to my relatives. From I was in middle school, I rarely go back home. Overtime I spend all the time with my family, so I don’t want to spend time with other people. Some of them grow up and get married and have children. I know my brother, but I don’t know my brother’s wife and kids. Eventually I don’t know most of them, because they all married. I bought gifts for my sister, my nephew and my parents, but I don’t want to stay at home for longer than a week. I told my sister I want go back at 27th. My sister was a little bit angry because I didn’t go back around one year, during last year. Overtime I go back, I would rush to go back SH again. I don’t care about them, I don’t miss them.
