Talking About Time Using Hace...Que/ present tense verbs

If you want to say how long it as has been that you ( or anyone else) have/ has been doing something, here  is the  four-part formula:

Hace + Length of time  that it HAS BEEN since the action of time has been going on + Que + The Verb (in present tense)

or if you want to shrink this down so it can fit in your head or on the palm of your hand...

Hace 10 años que como una dieta vegetariana.
Hace 10 años que  hago ejercicio cada dia.
Hace 10 años que soy sin amigos.

It has been 10 years that I have been eating a vegetarian diet.

It has been 10 years that I have been exercising every day.

It has been 10 years that I have been without friends.
