I had received good and bad news, but the good news was more, praise be to god.

recently mmmm i don't think i had any news this period

Congratulations to Ikeda! As for me, I haven't had any goods news recently, but I really wasn't expecting anything: no news is good news:

In this morning I got in an email that said "Congratulations, you interview is the next week". In this moment, I'm searching a job

By the way I don't remember any good news recently, there are good things that happened averydays but nothing to be pleased or celebrate. Now I am just working to use my time in the best possible way and learn a lot english how as possible.

Yes,I had good news from the author itu.They appreciated my work .I started online class for my students during codivid 19 epidemic .I tried my best to help the students for learning at home

Actually, I can't remember any particular good or bad news recently. "Nothing new" I would like to say. Basically, this year not rich for good news, if you know what I mean. It started with COVID-19, quarantine, many people died all around the world, economics decrease, some people lost their job. There also were some bad things in many countries. Tough year, telling the truth. But, I always try to find something good in any circumstance. My family is great, nobody's ill, kids at home, though, and it's wonderful to can spend time with them despite they are noisy and roughy sometimes.
Other bad news - the summer is nearly over but the good one - the autumn is coming and I hope it'll be warm and sunny.
Another good news - I've just finished B1 level of Speaking skill section ;)

Yesterday I received bad news, it's the same situation like this story, because I didn´t get the job, I have a good job profile but currently I really know that I need more english level, so that was the reason I couldn't get that job.

But it won't be an impediment for me to improve my english, now with this bad news is a reason to study english very hard every day, and then achieve my goal.

Yes, I've just had good news from the university where I wanted to enroll. They told me that I passed the entrance exam and allowed me to enter the university. I was pleased to hear that good news.

Well done! Congratulations
