Hi mum, How are you? How are things going? How has Lola been? I’m writing to you in English, cause it’s easier for me to write things in English (not joking), I hope you are having a good time as I do here in Ireland.
I give you the thanks, because you gave me the chance to be one year more in this great school “Dublin Oak Academy”, as I already said, I’m having a great time, my friends are always helping me if I need any help, the school in St. Patrick’s is hard but I enjoy my classes, almost any teacher recognised me the first day of school, they thought that I had a brother and that he’d come this year. My grades are good, and I am happy, now I go again every day to mass, do sports everyday and the time that I’ve been here has passed so fast.
Sometimes my friends ask me for any advise I tell them to be good, and that to be good doesn’t means to be a complete saint, I tell them that they should obey and that in this way they will have the best year of their life. Also some friends doesn’t know how to study and I also give them some advice or sometimes I study with them.
I love this year no one hates no one, and everyone likes to do sports, this helps me to do sports everyday, I even catch with some guys to run the Ironman or to go to the gym.
I love this school also because we get closer to God, we learn about faith and because I always have friends beside me who can help me. This is the last outing before going to Manchester, most of the guys are really excited because is our first trip, I am also and we all know this will be a good year for us.
So mum, I hope you like the letter, I wrote for you and you should tell Juliet to read it to you in Spanish so you understand what does it says.
I love you mum
