-Hi Kim, how are your studies going?
-Everything's ok, thank you for asking Ben. What about you? Are you doing well?
-Well, quite frankly I'm at sea at the moment. I thought I could quickly finish my degree and start something new but it's actually not as easy as I had first thought.
-I guess you have to be patient and see how matters evolve. If I were you, I'd focus on today. Don't spend all your time thinking about the future.
-Hm, maybe you're right. I'll try finishing this degree one step at a time and then plan other things. Thanks Kim!
