Be friendly to everyone and look forward to them being kind to you. And it works.

I met many good people and many bad people.
But this is life.

They did not do so in my time.
When you were pregnant on my day, this man married you and you were very happy.
When I got my high school diploma, I was 63 because I couldn't get it when I was young, but I was determined to get it.
I took it by letter and I have to pay but I don't mind.
I got what I wanted.
