    " Off the Hook" - cool; awesome; you like it

    "My Calling" - what you are made for

    "Light- years" - distance light can travel in years

    "Off the Hook"

    Something being "off the hook" means that it is superb, of good quality.

    "Light years"

    Is the measure of how far light travels in one year. This can also be used to say that something is really distanced from oneself, "That idea is light years away from me."


    Means that something is revealing, or you have had something revealed to you.

    "My calling"

    From a first-person perspective, one's calling would be the direction they are going in life. EX. "My calling is in medical research." MEANING: This person's career would be in medical research, as that is their calling.

    Never heard of "hole in the ground"

    "Eye-opening" is when something changes your opinion of something, or how you view it because you've been told something.

    A "light year" is a physics thing.. But in your context, it means a long time
