What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Brian: Happy New Year, Sasha! So, what’s your New Year’s resolution?
Sasha: I’m not sure. What’s your New Year’s resolution, Brian?
Brian: Mine is very simple. I want to exercise more. I have a big race coming up this summer, but I was way too lazy over Christmas. I will try to improve my exercise routine from now on. The more exercise I do, the more prepared I will be.
Sasha: I see. Hmm. I would like to spend more time with my friends this year.
Brian: That’s nice.
Sasha: Last year, I mainly texted people because it’s so convenient. But of course, it’s better to talk in person. So, I want to text less. This year, I will make more time for hanging out so that we can chat more.
Brian: Good idea! Let’s hang out more this year.
