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 make some plans, but not that many. I usually make one or two plans, like watching an anime and lying on the bed. That's it.

No, I do not make lots of plans for my free time. Because, I can not finish multiple task at the same time. I only set one or two goals, depending on how long time I have that is short or long. And I try my best to finish them in that free time.

When I have free time, a usually make lots and lots of plans, because I always wanna do a lot of things. But, this often doesnt work, either because a unforeseen event or because that was too many things to do in a short time.

When I have a long day off, I usually make lots of plans for what I want to do. In the morning, I am going to prepare breakfast. And then, I am going to watch movies, listen to music and do work out.

In my free time, I prefer to take a nap or just set relax, but then I realize that I can actually watch a movie in English and chilly and practice at the same time. Sometimes with my partner or friends or even alone.
