I have a very good friend. His name is Nick. Friends are very important in our life.
My friend and I always do our best to help one another. We discuss all our troubles and try to find the best decision in any situation. My friend is a very good, kind and clever boy. We often spend our free time together. It is not very easy now, because we are going to enter institutes and have a lot of work.
My friend is going to become a doctor and I am going to become an engineer. Our future professions are different, but we like to help one another in our study.
When we have some free time, we go for walks, read and discuss books, watch films, go to discos or play computer games. Playing computer games is our hobby. We are fond of sport. We often go to the swimming pool together. We are football fans and we like to watch and discuss football matches on TV or to go to the stadium. I think he is a true friend.
