Speaking

I went to Qingdao for our regular event and then it’s  second to last event of this campaign. We invited a celebrity named Henry he has lots of fans, he’s a singer and he can play violin. For me because this event format is similar as previous ones so it’s lack of freshness to me. Also, I watched a movie in a cinema, named Nezha, it was a quite inspiring movie but my boyfriend don’t like this kind of movie, so I went to see this movie by myself.

We invited a celebrity named Henry who he has lots of fans to the event, he’s a singer and he can play violin. For me because this event format is similar as previous ones so it’s lack of freshness to me Because this kind of event we have held several times so far it became monotonous for me/We already did this kind of event many times before, and thus it became a bit boring to do the same thing over and over . Also, I watched a movie in a cinema, named Nezha, it was a quite inspiring movie but my boyfriend don’t like this kind of movies, so I went to see this movie by myself/alone/on my own.
