Everday life

Hello,

I'm new here and I hope, you'll like my thread. You can name me Tobias

Let's go:

A lot happens in our lives, almost too much. But we're alive. We are alive and we can help each other, work in pairs and make the most of something. I thought about it, that Corona puts pressure on me. At least in school, because my grades are going deeper and deeper. That means: Someday, I was a very good student, but not so good since Corona. Yes, I'm alive. Yes, I could move and yes, I can get more than at the moment. We all need our motivation, but I'm interestet, from where you take your motivation and your strength. I'm unfortunately so sleepy and annoyed from school (I have almost to 17.10 school). Before Corona, I could learn at least to 20.00. But right now, I can't. I hope, you can understand, what I want to see. So, I've to go to school. Tell me something of your everyday life or take care of my questions, so I'm quiet curious to your answers. Good bye, have a nice day

Hello, and welcome to the Forum.

Your profile says you're 17 and Swiss. What is your mother-tongue?

Hello, and welcome to the Forum.

The Germanic use of punctuation and "name" presumably as a direct translation from "nennen" aptly gave the game away in the first line . (Not trying to be mean - the English is excellent!)

Welcome Tobias. What keeps going me going is the thought that I've saved up my holiday allowance and cash for a plurality of holidays in 2021! As regards strength - things just bother you less as you get older. Losing a year from 17 to 18 would have been rubbish, as so much happens at that age. From 31 to 32, less so!

Hi, Tobias!

You're welcome to our diverse community and I wish you to find it useful, one way or another.
However, I have the feeling you were looking for this website?

https://www.englishforum.com


Hope we could help you too, of course. You know what can help when feeling demotivated? Making plans. Thinking of future projects and adventures. The pandemic will be over one day.

Re: Everday life

Thank you at all.

No, I wanted to go in this forum. I like, that we're a community of switzerland (or other, no problem) and I like to get your opinions like that. Thank u for that much answers. I know now, that we all have problems and we could all get motivation, when we want (fortunately). I'm going to observe that forum and maybe, I'll write Replys to some threads.

Thank u and I'll read your answers in future.
