Go away


Go away: to leave, disappear or... to go on vacation.

1. When you’re busy with something and don’t have time to chat, don’t you just wish that some people would go away and leave you in peace?

2. Some problems simply go away with time, while other problems will never go away on their own… you have to “face the music” and deal with them proactively. Do you agree with the following statement: “Problems that go away by themselves come back by themselves”?

3 Here is a melancholic yet catchy song, “Go away” by the band “Eisley”: “So go away, go away and leave me on my own”. When you tell someone to go away, you are telling them to leave you alone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl5IX-zMaKw

4. Do you usually go away during your vacations/ holidays or do you stay in your own city – either at home relaxing or going out and doing activities? Usually my financial situation determines whether I can go away on vacation or not.



5. Here is a popular nursery rhyme: “Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3v0rJqyCTM. At the moment are you waiting for the rain or the snow to go away?

6. Out of frustration we often say that we wish something unpleasant would just go away, but unfortunately that is wishful thinking. Do you have any problems you wish would just go away? Are there any social situations you wish would simply go away?

7. HIV/ AIDS is a major epidemic that plagues some parts of the world. I think that it could easily “go away” in just one generation if people were not promiscuous and were faithful to one partner.
