1. How often do you see your neighbors?
Not really often, I have to say. I’m living in an apartment, so it’s quite hard to see my neighbors frequently. And because I’m working part-time and studying at the same time, I normally set off early in the morning and come back home quite late at night, which even makes it harder to see them.
2. Do you invite your neighbors to your home?
I have never done so. As I’ve said before, I don’t even have time to see and talk to them, let alone invite any to my home. But I think this is a great idea to get to know my neighbors better. So maybe in the near future, I will try once.
3. Do you think you are a good neighbor?
I don’t think so, I’m afraid. I don’t even know who lives on the same floor with me, so I can’t say I have a good relationship with them. But I can say with certainty that I’m not a trouble-maker. I mean, I’m not nosy, noisy or anything like that.
4. Has a neighbor ever helped you?
Let me see. There was once actually. That night I came home super late and I forgot to bring my keys. My phone was out of power as well, so I could not call my roommate to open the door. Luckily, a girl living next door appeared and lent me her phone.
