Are you okay? You look as pale as a ghost.
Actually, I’m not. I’ve been feeling under the weather since last night.
Now, my eyes are itchy and I’ve got a terrible headache.

That explains it. It’s probably due to your heavy workload recently.
I guess so.

Can I give you advice? Please don’t bite off more than you can chew. It may seem productive at first, but it will hurt your work performance later on.
You’re right. I may have been overworked, that’s why I caught an illness
so quickly.

Have you taken any medicine?
Not yet, but I’ll make sure to do that once I got home.

Make sure to take enough rest, Emma. I wish you speedy recovery.

The band members seem simple too. I mean, they’re not trying to show off or anything like that. But once you listen to their music, that’s just pure talent right there.
Well, as what they say, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”.

Interesting question. Well, the way I see it, it’s unlikely that aliens exist.

Hmm, you could be right, but there are ongoing space explorations being conducted by scientists. Who knows, they might find signs of life on other planets.
I agree with you on that. It’s an important milestone for science too, so we
should be up to date with their findings.

It’s common knowledge that there are trillions of galaxies in the universe. There are still so many things to explore which could lead to countless possibilities.
I couldn’t agree more. The bottom line is that we should be open-minded
and prepared for any changes so that we can easily adapt.

School
Nowadays, some parents choose to homeschool their children. It is a way of studying at home instead of going to school. A homeschool teacher teaches one child at a time, so there is better understanding. On the other hand, teachers in school teach many students. Some parents prefer such a way and by doing so, more kids learn better in the comfort of their homes.
