Hi! I'm here! I'm here.


Good. smiley


What's up, Neira?


Would you like to meet for a coffee?


Yes! When?


I'm working now, but I finish work at five. Maybe at 5.15?


That's difficult for me. Can we meet 30 minutes later?


OK. Where?


The Blue Café is nice. I love the tea there. heart


It's closed on Mondays. Let's go to Rocket Boy. It's new.


Is it good?


It's very good!


Where is it? I don't know it.


It's next to the school. See you there?

I meet my friends between week sometimes we meet in my friend's pizzeria, other times we go to another friend's house to make sleeping or see movies. It is always at night at 8:00 pm.

I meet my friends when their birthdays have, and also my birthdays. We usually meet before 8:00 p.m.

I met my friends at school, currently my friends from the normal school do not see them due to the pandemic however my friends from the previous schools I sometimes see them at home or at my house.

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 usually meet my friends in the park in the afternoon after school.
Now because of the quarantine we talk on WhatsApp.

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!

I meet my friends at Starbucks, usually at 6 pm when we finish work, but now I meet them over the phone due to the quarantine

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

I used to meet with my friends in the university cafeteria from Monday to Friday at 9 pm. Now, I always meet with them online through the Zoom app.
