B - On Saturday I'm going to finish my project and then go out at night. On Sunday I'm playing soccer in the morning and then having dinner at my parent's house. What about you?
A - I'm going to the mountains for the weekend. It should be a lot of fun!

A - What are you going to do after you graduate?
B - I think I'm going to go traveling for a few months. I'm going to see a travel agent pretty soon to try and organize everything. What are you going to do?
