Part 1 Weather
1. What’s the weather like where you live?
I live in Beijing and Beijing doesn’t not exactly have the nicest weather. Summer is scorching hot, we have a lot of
triple digit temperatures and winter is freezing. We do have
some beautiful weather in the fall, but it’s really short, like only one month. And the air is super dry.
2.Do you prefer cold or hot weather?
I’m gonna go with the lesser of these two evils, I’d pick cold weather. I feel like it’s easier to cope with the cold, you can just bundle up to stay warm, and when you have heat in the house, it’s really not a problem. You might say, well, you can use air conditioning when it’s hot, the thing is, staying in an air conditioned room for a long time always gives me headaches and a stuffy nose. And not having air conditioning in summer is just not an option, the heat wave is just unbearable.
3.Do you prefer dry or wet weather?
You know what? One thing I do like about the weather in Beijing is that it is dry year around. It really agrees with me, mostly because I hate wet weather where the air is always damp and it rains too much, mold grows everywhere in the house, it can be such a nuisance. The sun is always blocked by clouds. That kind weather just makes me depressed.
4.Do yo get in the habit of checking the weather forecast? When/how often?
I don’t think I do. I only check the weather forecast occasionally. Most of the time, I work from home, I don’t go out that much, so I’m not exposed to the elements. The weather outside doesn’t affect my daily plans. Besides, I never take the weather forecast too seriously, it’s just not as accurate as it should be.

Part 1 Snacks
1. What snacks do you like to eat?
Well, I’m not a snack person. I only occasionally eat something like chips when I’m really hungry and I don’t have other food. And I don’t even like chips. Snacking is just not my thing. I always try to have good, nutritious meals. You know, most snacks people eat are highly processed foods, they contain a lot of trans fat, salt and sugar, which are bad for your health.
2.Did you often eat snacks when you were young?
Not really. When I was a kid, I wasn’t like the other kids, I didn’t really like candy, cake, ice cream or anything. You know, I have a cousin who never ate his meals, he only ate snacks, and his parents had to make him eat rice and vegetables. That was never a problem with me, I always had a good appetite for the meals my parents cooked. And they didn’t really buy snacks because I didn’t want them.
3.When do you usually eat snacks now?
Like I said, I don’t eat snacks that much. When I do feel hungry and it’s not meal time, I’d grab some fruit, nuts or yogurt to eat which I think are natural and healthy. I don’t know, I have always preferred natural foods. Sometimes when I go grocery shopping, I do occasionally pick up jellies or biscuits, but I either don’t open them at all or I only eat a little before dumping them in the trash. Just not a fan.
4.Do you think it is healthy for you to eat snacks?
I think I’ve made my point. Most snacks are not healthy. You just don’t know what you are taking into your body, I mean all those unhealthy additives and artificial ingredients. You know why parents won’t let their children eat candy and other sugary foods because they give children cavities and make them fat. And the reason why some adults have a hard time losing weight is that they just don’t cut back on snacks. Snacking is just a bad habit.
