The day, long awaited by me and the girls who have spent the holidays, has finally arrived. I really wanted to go back to school and take advantage of every moment to study so that at the end of the school year I can make my parents happy; and since they do their best to be able to educate and teach us all that they can, we too must make sacrifices for them. Some girls remained in the city, others in the countryside like me; and others that have been more laborious and dedicated have not gone on holiday, even if it is useful to rest and distract a little. I cannot wait for tomorrow to go back to school and say hello to the young Miss and to the girls I have not seen for two months that feel like two years; I hope to achieve my resolutions so that in the future I can find a job as a house maid in a good family and can help my parents.
Beginning of the school year
