Patrick: Hey Katie. What’s up ?
Katie: Hey Patrick. I’m going to Paula’s school. I think she messed up again.
Patrick: That’s the third time this month. Why don’t you talk to her?
Katie: I did. I guess she’s all worried about her exams. She’s under a lot of pressure.
Patrick: She’s a freshman. The first year can be tough.
Katie: I know. I talked to her four three hours yesterday.There’s a lot of pressure on students these days. She didn’t listen to me and just started crying.
Patrick: That’s bad, Katie. Maybe you should take her to a therapist.
Katie: I think that’s exactly what I’ll do.
Katie: Hey Shawna. Can you help me out with something?
Shawna: Sure Katie. What is it?
Katie: Paula’s been under a lot of pressure lately. I don’t know what to do.
Shawna: Why don't you ask her to join something she likes? What are her hobbies?
Katie: Well, she likes to play her guitar. She also likes painting and sketching.
Shawna: Do you think she’ll like to join an art or music class?
Katie: I think so. Music and art are her favorite hobbies.
Shawna: Great then. I know a place which offers weekend programs for teenagers. We can go there tomorrow.
Katie: Thanks a lot Shawna.
Penny: Hey! I’m Penny. We just moved here last week.
Katie: I’m Katie. Nice to meet you. Welcome to the neighbourhood. Anything I can help you out with?
Penny: Actually, yes. My son is a freshman and I don’t know anything about schools around here.
Katie: My daughter’s a freshman too. She goes to Belmont. It’s a nice school.
Penny: Oh, really? That’s nice. Does Belmont have a good football team? My son was in his last school’s football team. He wants to continue playing.
Katie: Sure. Don’t worry about it. It’s a great school. I take my daughter to school every morning. You should come with us and have a look around.
Penny: That would be great. Thank you.
