W: Where are you going, Jerry?
M: To the sports store, Mom. My baseball gloves are worn out. I want to buy a new pair.
W: Fine. Please buy some bread on your way back.
M: Lily, are these pictures yours? They are beautiful.
W: No, they're not mine. They're my younger sister, Alisa's. She began to learn how to draw when she was eight years old. She is skilled at it! Let me show you more pictures in her lovely studio, Tim.
M: Hello, I want to make an appointment to see Dr. White this Sunday. Is he free?
W: Well, he is occupied that day. How about Friday morning or Saturday afternoon this week?
M: Then Saturday, please. Thanks.
W: Sam, I promised that I would bring my model plane. But now...
M: What happened, Jenny?
W: My brother is so curious, but naughty. He made a mess in my bedroom yesterday. What's worse, he broke it. Sorry that I can't bring it to you.
W: Our vacation is coming. What are you going to do, Fred?
M: Well, I'm going to save money. My parents keep talking about the cost in university. So I need to get hired. Besides, I want to save up for a bike.
W: Wow, that's great!
M: Excuse me, madam, I'd like to go to the Culture Center. At which stop should I get off?
W: This bus is No. 20. It will not go by the Culture Center. You need to get off at the City Park and then take another bus.
M: The City Park? You mean, the stop after the next?
W: Yes. Then walk along the road for about 10 minutes and take the first turning on the right. You will see a bus stop there. Take the No. 201 bus. You won't miss it.
M: I see. Thank you, madam. Hope I will meet my friend on time.
M: Annie, I will have a football match tomorrow. The final of this semester. Do you have time to come?
W: What time? I will check if I can make it there.
M: It begins at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
W: 4 o'clock? Well, let me see. I will have a meeting at 1:30 p.m. It will last one and a half hours. Yeah, I think I have time to go and cheer for you.
M: Yes! Then please remember to pick up Dad and Mom.
W: OK, I will. They are your big fans.
M: Yeah. They have never missed any of matches since I joined the football club of my school.
W: You're the football king in our family. We are proud of you.
M: Thank you.
W: Shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes. What else do we need?
M: Slippers and towels. Don't forget them.
W: Ah, yes. We need to pick some. Do we need to buy some colorful papers to decorate Calvin's room？
M: Of course. But he is a big boy now. He can choose whatever he likes for himself. Let him choose next time.
W: Fine. Let's go to the food section. Amanda asked me to buy some milk and cookies. She wants to take some with her to school. She always feels hungry after having two classes.
M: OK. Let's go. We also need to buy some vegetables and fruits. What fruits do they like most?
W: Amanda loves apples and bananas.
M: What about Calvin?
W: Calvin？ You know, he prefers to eat vegetables, especially cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce. Ah, and beef.
W: Andrew, you are back. Have you bought some gifts for me?
M: Of course. Some chocolate from Switzerland. Enjoy it!
W: Wow! Thank you so much! It must be very delicious. So how is your trip there?
M: Amazing! You know, Switzerland is not only famous for its watches, but also for its chocolate. A Swiss chocolate producer offers factory tours to guests. Then I had the opportunity to learn about the different production stages of the process.
W: I once watched the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. But I have never been to the chocolate factory. I envy you!
M: You can too if you are willing to spare time for visiting various places.
W: Yeah, I think you are right. Well, you have travelled to many places, like Venice in Italy and Paris in France. So which place do you like most？
M: What impressed me most is Troms, a city in the north of Norway. It is located near the Arctic Circle. So it is a good place for me to fully enjoy the Northern Lights. I will remember that experience forever. And when I was in Troms, it happened to be the Northern Lights Festival. It takes place during the last week of January every year.
W: The Northern Lights? Have you taken photos? I can't wait to see them.
M: Of course. I will show you at lunchtime. Let's get to work first before the boss arrives. It's five to ten now.
M:We live in a world where we could spend our lives pursuing hobbies. But most of us spend our lives working. Achieving a balance between work and entertainment is essential to our health and well-being. Therefore, I spent some time collecting hobbies and then started NotSoBoringLife.com. The website is for you to find a new hobby. Now I will introduce some hobbies on the website to you.
The first is collecting. You can collect buttons, toys, pens, pencil sharpeners and so on. For some, it's the thrill of finding, and talking with other collectors. But for others, it's all about displaying the collection.
Besides, you can look for a tasty hobby. Think about a four-course meal and an amazing wine. Your friends will love you if you pick up a hobby in the food and drink category. It will bring not only the fruits of your labor but also pleasure and relaxation.
Then, a new RC hobby. RC hobbies, namely, radio controlled hobbies, can provide hours of entertainment. There are RC cars, RC helicopters and RC boats. And RC cars are often the least expensive.
If you're looking for a new hobby, please stop by and check out my website.
