Oh Alexandra, it´s really hard. I hope this year will bring you good work! This is really exhausting.

Ah, yes... it is so hard... and it leaves one feeling crestfallen.

Sending you much luck, and a dose of energy, too. I need to do the very same.

Du har verkligen gjort vad Du kunde! Och mycket mer därtill!!! Imponerande, men så klart väldigt nedslående resultat! Inte roligt nu, men säkert en erfarenhet! Jag håller tummarna!!! Kram och god fortsättning!!!

Hm...inte kul...men i Göteborg är det säkert lättare, jag skulle för min del gärna vilja ha dig som lärare i tex screen tryck:)
