A: Hi, John. What's new? B: Hey! No news, Joey. A: what are you going? B: I am heading to Room 17 for Primary classes. A: oh, that sucks. I mean we had that subject in the first class yesterday and it was so boring that even those sitting at the front of the class drifted off to sleep. B: oh, I see. But it is what I always do. I sleep just like some other students. A: All right, I gotta go. Otherwise, I will be late for my class. B: Good luck. If you have this subject for the first class tomorrow, let me know. I have to give some heads-up. How is it going / how are you doing , how are things are all used like HOW are you? As a greeting word but don't necessarily mean the same thing, right?. Hello everybody. Please take a look at my made-up conversation and let me know if it needs corrections. Thanks.

I have to give you a heads-up (about something). ["a" heads-up; it's a countable noun but there is only one ever, haha] How is it going / how are you doing / how are things: are all used like HOW are you? As a greeting word but don't necessarily mean the same thing, right?. Hello everybody. Please take a look at my made-up conversation and let me know if it needs corrections. Thanks.
Very good! How is it going / how are you doing / how are things → They all mean roughly the same thing. "How's it going?" is a little more casual than the others. "How are things?" sounds a little more concerned (there might be a slight implication that you think something could be wrong), but not very much. For this kind of casual conversation dialogue, use contractions as much as possible: "it's", "I'll"... it will make your writing seem more natural.
