In the early morning, I usually do jogging at a park nearby my home. After dinner, my parents and I always like to go for a walk in that park.

Yes, I do. I have two types of headphones. One is the typical headphone produced by SONY. The other one is a pair of Bluetooth earphones called Air Pods.
When would you use headphones?
When I talk with someone on the phone at a public area, I’ll put on my earphone in case others may spy (overhear) my talk. In addition, when I want to immerse myself into the music world, I would put on my headphone which can provide me with a high-quality audio effect.
In what conditions, you won't use headphones?
Well, that is an interesting question, there are so many conditions. The first situation that comes into my mind is attending a class at school. When we listen to a lecture, we need to put 100%(percent) concentration on the content of the class. However, wearing headphones in the class not only declines our learning efficiency but also disrespects our teachers.

TikTok is just like the Chinese-versioned YouTube. The video clips on this app can be divided into different categories, such as sports, Geek, anime, English learning and so on. I’m most interested in watching video clips about food, because I’m a foodie.
