‘35 and Single’: a video story to improve your English Reviewed by on . Array Array Rating: 1.5

From The New York Times a video story to practice your English.
An Argentine woman shares her intimate search for love and answers: must she settle down or remain a free spirit in order to be happy?

 

Over the past 10 years, I’ve been compulsively filming everyone and everything for no particular reason. All my love stories and breakups have been recorded and systematically kept.

As I continued to change boyfriends and hometowns every two years or so, I filmed my friends with their boyfriends, then husbands, then pregnant bellies, until they were surrounded by children. When my last single friend from school married, I fell asleep the evening of the wedding and didn’t show up.

I’m 35, Argentine, Jewish and single. And these four categories don’t seem to go smoothly together.
