1. I walked into the principal's office and felt like a mother rather than a scared student.
2. Today was a roller coaster ride of emotions, but I stayed on and didn't chicken out. The relief brought by the end of the day is most welcome and I feel that I can step off the ride for the night.
3. I relate a funny incident to my mom over the phone. She laughs and laughs for several minutes and keeps going back to laughing even when we change the subject.
