Ryan’s Phrase Of The Day: On The Cusp

Meaning: About to do sth/sth will happen soon

Example (1): “My friend in LangFang said there is heavy, torrential rain now and that it’s heading to Beijing. So I guess we are on the cusp of a storm.”

Example (2): “After working hard for the past few years, I need to continue for a couple more months and then I’ll be on the cusp of having enough savings to buy my first property. Milestone!”

See ya!

    We had wild storm here in victoria the night before, with icy winds up to 120km/h and torriential rain till 3 o'clock in the morning. Lying in bed and hearing windows and roof rattling, house shaking, it's pretty scary night. Hope you dont get storm in beijing as bad as we had. 🙏 Sleep tight! Happy weekend! ❤

    @LanaWishin2BRichOver9t Yes, I plan to buy an apartment in Sheffield, England and then rent it out to students or convert into an Airbnb for the next few years while I’m living here.

    @Ryan I'm alright. 谢谢暖男Ryan! You're so sweet!😙 It's been alright today, cloudy, windy n' possibly rain later tonight and 2morrow. There has been a lot of rain this winter and farmers aren't happy for that. Well the forecast suggests that the weather is not going to be too bad for the next 2ws, so for me I could consider booking a flight to china over next week. Let's see. And its weeked again! Enjoy it! Have a super one! xo
