Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People's social skills have declined as their use of technology has increased.
Personally speaking, I don’t think the statement is reasonable. Because technology can be used to bring people together. Many report that use of social media platforms, texting, and other apps allows them to stay connected to peers they know in real life. It also can foster the development of friendships with peers around the world who have shared interests and goals. Also, people who often struggle with engaging in social interactions in person may find that online communities and social media platforms allow them to practice social skills and gain confidence with social communication in a more comfortable way.
Some people prefer to go to gym everyday, some people prefer to go when they have free time. Which do you prefer and why?
I guess I’d like to hit the gym everyday as a routine, because it has so many benefits, mentally and physically. Firstly, it enables me to relax after a whole day of busy study. As a first year student in the university, I’ve got loads of classes to take and piles of assignments to deal with, I just really have to do something in order to take a break from all that and relieve the stress from my academic course work. Doing daily workouts in the gym is one of my go-to choices. Besides, since I spend most of my time sitting in a classroom or in front of a computer screen, it’s necessary to move around and sweat a bit just to get my body activated. That’s pretty much why I go to gym on a daily basis.
Imagine that you need to find housing next semester and have found two possible apartments. One is near the campus but a little expensive, the other is a bit far but cheaper. Which do you prefer and why.
For me, I’d probably choose the cheaper one, although it’s a bit far from school. I don’t really have to live close to school, because I don’t go on campus often as a senior student since I’ve already finished all the courses that I have to take for credits. I might have to meet my professor or adviser at school once in a while, but living a bit further isn’t really a problem. Also, I’d take the cheaper one because I’d love to save some money for later use. I’m going to further my study for a master’s degree in New York, and as it’s known to us all that it’s one of the most expensive places to live. Let alone the tuition, I’ll still have to spend money on housing, gas, food and so forth.
