  1. Leuk! En is het echt waar dat je jezelf zo weinig nep ziek hebt gemeld? Netjes hoor ;-)

    1. Ja, geen grapje! Ik was op de middelbare school ontzettend braaf. Tijdens mijn studie heb ik af en toe misschien wel iets geskipped, maar niet als het echt belangrijk was. En niet gezegd dat ik ziek was, ik was er gewoon niet.

  2. Ik vind dit echt een leuke tag! Je hebt al behoorlijk wat gedaan/beleefd, vooral dat diving. Zo gaaf!
