In the conversation, the student is facing a problem that he is taking advanced chemistry course this semester but it takes him so much time that he doesn’t have any time left for his weekly editorial on school newspaper. There are two solutions. He could choose either to change the frequency into one editorial every two weeks or to take a less challenging course – basic chemistry. As far as I’m concerned, the former is a better choice since as a student it is much more important to put one’s focus on academic performance. Not writing editorials on school newspaper or writing less wouldn’t hurt him a lot. Instead, if he gets a low score on his course, he may not get a promising career after graduation and what’s worse he may not even graduate from his university, Therefore, because of this reason I suppose that the first solution is better.
