I usually don’t meet a lot of people to get to know them. But every day sometimes I see the same people in the cafe where I work from the cafe

I think I usually meet new people in college, most of them are strangers and I get to know new people in some specific activity, like group discussion, report and vacation.

Yeah, I often meet new people when I survey factory with my team. Because if we want to develop new product for our company we have to go to the factory check every thing about material, their employee, factory, gallery…so that why we have to go a lot of factory and meet lots of new people in there.

I often meet new people at work because for some of them our job is only a temporary job. I like that because I always have an opportunity to get to know new people with different life experience to tell me.
