  1. Whatever встречается очень часто. Практически во всех ситуациях, где присутствует безразличие:

    – I’m going to have another pint, and then we can go. Should I order anything for you?
    – Whatever, man. I don’t mind.

    Welcome to my homepage . I started writing in high school after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for a while before I thought about doing something else.
    I had always loved doing non-fiction writing because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing ability with a love of learning, academic writing only makes sense as a job.
