I can relax during the holiday. I think I can repeat something I do again. When I’m working, I feel like a robot, but in holiday, I can find some interesting things to do, like buy some toy models and go skateboarding, walk my dog. For people, we work like robot but in holiday you can have more things to do. You have more time to spend with your family. Usually 2-3 weeks in a month. My mum lives in my brother’s house here. She helps to care for my brother’s baby. Usually, I go back to Shandong Province once a year.
