Speaking

Last evening, I ate dinner with my friends and we talked about our salary. One friend said she’s very busy but she didn’t make lots of money. Another one said she is not busy, and she didn’t make lots of money too. One of them said he often work overtime, he doesn’t have rest, from Monday to Sunday, he often in the office. His boss was afraid to the employees will sick and he required the employees to have a rest. If they don’t want to have a rest, he will cut their salary. His boss heard of the news: a employee work overtime usually and he died, so he was scared. I think he didn’t pay the money. We talked an app: ZhiHu. In ZhiHu, everyone is rich.

Writing

The weather was so cold yesterday. But I had to went to Baoshan. Because my friends and I had a date on last Monday. We planned to play badminton on Saturday, one of my friends had booked for a place which can play it and it can’t be canceled . Even if the weather was bad, we also went to the gym.
When I left home, I asked my friends to wait for me at Baoshan Wanda shopping mall. They agreed on it. A few minutes later I afraid that they wait for me for a long time because I was far from baoshan so I said that you could go to the gym first and then I were going to take a taxi. A boy said it dose not matter, we will wait for you.
But when I arrived Wanda I couldn’t find my friend. They didn’t wait for me. Nobody answered me when I called them. I was very angry at that time. And then I was so sad because it means that I had to went to the gym alone. The weather was bad. It was rainy and very windy. The gym was far from the shopping mall. If I ride a bike, maybe it takes me for a few minutes but in the rainy day I didn’t want to take a bike.
On the way I walked to the gym I was disappointed. I thought that I never want to come here. There’s no bus, subway. It’s inconvenient.
Finally when I arrived at the gym, my friends were afraid to talked with me. I think I looked very sour. They talked with me very carefully. It’s interested. 🙁
