food for thought

something that makes you think a lot about a particular subject

something that should be considered carefully

The video below will give you a lot of food for thought.

Case with Everyday Masters made the video with his daughters. Two oversouls have a conversation about going to earth, the craziest experience they have ever had.


“This short story describes what I believe is happening on the planet. The Frequencies mentioned in the video are real, and they are speeding up the awakening of everyone that attunes to them.” Case

His daughters’ speech is clear, so it’s a good listening practice with lots of useful vocabulary. Listen carefully to pronunciation. Look up the words you don’t know. Notice how words are combined and take notes.

So, did the video give you food for thought?

Take a week off

take the (day/week) off

This means to not work, to stay home from work. You usually don’t use this phrase when you’re going on a vacation. Instead, you use it to describe staying home from work because you’re sick, because you want to rest, because you have a doctor’s appointment, and so on.

If you know how long you’re going to take off, you can say “take the day off”, “take a couple days off”, etc. If you don’t know how long it will be, you can say “take some time off”:

I think I’m going to take the day off.

I need to take a week off so I can look after my children.
