    Well, the first person that came to mind when looking at this topic was actually one of my neighbors, who I guess must be approaching her 80's now, and so I’d like to tell you a little bit about her, and why I enjoy talking with her.

    As for how I got to know her in the first place, well, if I’m not mistaken, I met her when I was walking my two dogs in the gardens of the apartment complex where I live, and one of my dogs just ran straight up to her, and literally jumped up and gave her a hug! I remember at the time, I was slightly worried because I wasn’t sure if she liked dogs or not, but thankfully, it turned out that she was a big animal lover, so she had no problem with my dogs, and now she even looks forward to seeing them every time she comes out for a walk.

    Anyway, with regard to what we talk about when we see each other, well, it’s kind of hard to say, because there’s not really anything in particular that we always talk about, you know, it could be the weather, my studies, something in the news, but generally what normally happens is that she asks me how things are going, and after listening to me she will then offer some of her thoughts and advice, which I really appreciate, because she’s obviously experienced a lot more than I have in life.

    And just to give you a little example of some of the stuff we talk about, when I bumped into her a few days ago, I mentioned to her a problem I was having with an essay I had to write, because it was a two and a half thousand-word essay about something extremely dull, and, for the life of me, I couldn’t think of anything to write. But she just said to me, “Forget about how much you need to write, just imagine you can write it as long or as short as you want.” And it was amazing, because when I changed my mindset in the way she suggested, it suddenly became much easier to write the essay, and I even ended up writing over three thousand words!

    So this is just one example, and I guess it partly explains why I like talking with her a lot, because she’s always able to give me good advice, whether it be in my studies or any other aspect of my life, and I’m super grateful to her for this.

    Finally, I should also mention that she’s an incredibly nice lady, so it’s always really enjoyable chatting with her.

    Thank you very much for listening.

    Our school uniform is strict but we look smart and sophisticated. I like wearing it because it saves me time in the morning. I don't have to choose my clothes. School uniforms are good for students, they make everyone equal, that's pretty cool! It helps limit bullying, since others can't make fun of your clothes. Some students don't like it because it makes everyone look the same. I think it minimizes social divisions between students. But it's true that in summer, we can get really hot and uncomfortable.
