Francesco: Sachi? Sachi? Sachiko! 

Sachi: Francesco! Is everything OK?

Francesco: Yes. Yes. Sorry, I saw you and I was across the street … I ran.

Sachi: I see. What's up?

Francesco: Do you have the tickets … for the play?

Sachi: No, I don't. I'm going to buy them this afternoon.

Francesco: Oh good, good. Listen, don't buy tickets for this Friday.

Sachi: Oh? Why not?

Francesco: I can't go to the theatre on Friday. Something's come up. I have a concert this Friday.

Sachi: Another concert? But you said …

Francesco: I know, I know. I'm sorry. I forgot.

Sachi: Francesco! 

Francesco: How about next week? Are you free then? I can definitely go next Friday.

Sachi: Francesco. You did this two weeks ago, remember? I had cinema tickets for the new Marvel movie and you changed the plans then too. For band practice.

Francesco: I know, and I …

Sachi: We also missed my favourite dance group. Because your band was playing at some child's birthday party.

Francesco: It was my nephew's birthday …

Sachi: Ha! 

Francesco: OK, why don't we go out for dinner before my concert? Then, next Friday we can go to the play.

Sachi: Oh …

Francesco: Come on, Sachi. Just this one more time.

Sachi: OK, but promise me next Friday. OK?

Francesco: I promise. I promise!

I’ve been at home for 2 months because of the Tet holiday and Corona virus. In that time, I often played football with my friends. In the evening, we regular played pool near my house. Additionally I learned English when ever i can.

Yes, I have. As a programmer who is just graduated from college, keeping learning is vital. Thus, every Friday I will go to Internet cafe with friends to relax, every Satuaday morning, I will play basketball, and then study program all afternoon, evening is computer game time. Sunday I will lie in, and then it will be same as Satuaday.

when i have free time i would like to do new and amazing activities..for example walk on the beach, or to go to lunapark, or to visit an art city, or even a relaxing walk. i also love little and simple things. But i often don't do all of these because i don't have the right company. So, i often spend my free time at home :(
