Greetings from a warm and sunny Lloret de Mar. We're having a great time, but it's a pity you aren't here. How do you feel about taking care of your mum? You're probably fed up with it, having to do everything yourself as she isn't allowed to get out of bed. I was a bit nervous the day we left, going on holiday without my parents. But we're doing all right on our own. I'm in a really good mood, actually. I've just met a pretty Spanish girl called Pilar. I'm going to take her dancing later tonight, so I'm really excited. Well, I'd better get ready for my date.
My name is Carlijn and I'm from Best in the Netherlands. I'm writing to find out how you've been. How did you feel when your family actually moved to Anchorage? And how do you feel about college now? You can share it all with me. I think sharing your feelings with people is very important. That's why there's also something I want to share with you. I feel miserable because I have no idea what I'm going to do after secondary school.
I really hope you'll write to me.

In my first year at secondary school I looked very different. I used to wear glasses but I now wear contact lenses. The clothes I usually wear now are more fashionable than the jeans and sweatshirts I wore when I was twelve. I think I'm still as fun and outgoing as I was then, but now I go dancing more often, almost every Saturday. And I didn't take street dance classes then. At that time I didn't have my own laptop either. My best friend then used to be Hafida, but not any more. We both used to live here in Leiden but she no longer does, that's why. She moved to Eindhoven two years ago. I have a lot of friends here at school but none of them are as important as my new best friend, Tonisha. I can talk to her about everything, so she's more important. Another important person I have in my life right now that I didn't used to have when I was twelve is my boyfriend Jos.

I used to be terrible at Maths, but, luckily, I no longer am. In the first few months of my first year at secondary school I got nothing but unsatisfactory marks. It made me very unhappy. I hated Maths so much that when they offered me extra lessons I said no. Of course my marks got even worse. As a New Year's resolution I decided to do something about it and after the Christmas Break of that first year I finally followed the extra lessons. Now I'm much better at Maths and I find the lessons more interesting. Because of my high marks for Maths the chances that I will find a nice education or job after secondary school are much bigger.
