Speaking

I guess it’s very safe now. I think in China it’s okay, but no one want to go to other countries. Every year I want to go abroad at least once or twice, but now not really. I think it’s not a good idea. I think the world will pew. When I was young, I watched “2012” and at that time, I really believed that. I bought a lot of food online. Every day I want to shop online. I will go to Tao bao to buy something even if I don’t need to buy anymore. Now, everyone just sells something online.
