Speaking

Now, because my company is near my home, I don’t have time to read the news. When I watching the news last night, it was about Shanghai event. I really want to go to the expo but I can’t do that because you should book the tickets online but I miss it. I don’t like the entertainment kind of news. I don’t care about them, who marry who. When I was a teenager, I really love the sports news, I will buy the magazine and read in class.
