E: Have you made up your mind about not going back to your hometown after graduation? Where else would you go?
P: I would try to land a job in Beijing. I just want to go to one of the big cities.
P: many say more development opportunities can be found there.
E: that's true. Beijing is the political, economic and cultural center of the entire country.
P: and there're higher salaries there.
E: well, that's true, but living expenses are also higher in big cities.
P: I've considered that. I'll share an apartment with others to save the rent, and the cost of living won't be too much for only one person.
E: one person? How about your girlfriend?
P: oh, we had to break up because she didn't want to float around in Beijing. She insisted on working in her hometown and having a stable life.
E: sorry to hear that. It seems you have sacrificed a lot to work away from home.
P: sure have. I want to offer my parents a better life; so, I'll have to work very hard.
E: I admire you. Good luck!
