Before I used to meet every day with my friends in the university cafeteria, but now we cannot meet because of covid-19. Now, I always meet them online via meet app.

I met my friends in my childhood, that is to say in elementary school. We usually meet once a year, and we watch movies but we also share our anecdotes. Disputing the food and flavored water made by my parents.

Hello! I hope you are all well, I want to share how I am coping with the pandemic that everyone is going through. I haven't seen my friends in over 8 months, and I stopped talking to them, I really have a lot of things to tell them, we have stopped talking for a while. But not all is lost, a week ago I visited my best friend from Teree High School, it was her birthday party and my classmates were there. It was so much fun to meet so many of them!

There's no special place for me and my friends to meet. I see my friends often in the evening.

I meet my friends when their birthdays have , and also my birthday. And usually we meet at donations and weddings of friends. But It not always . Only one or two times a year! When we meet , we cook and eat something at one friend home .We meet on the whole day from morning to evening. It was the happy times! The last meet is six months ago. Now , we can't meet each other whatever because of Covid-19. And, I sometimes met my partners on Saturday Evenings. They aren't my friends. But we have understanding and kindness each other. We usually went to restaurant and we talk about our job , and then went back to home before night.
