Christy Leung After the Christmas holidays last year, I received my test results. I had high marks in everything but I failed maths. I was really disappointed as I'm usually quite good at maths. I didn't tell my parents about my results because I didn't want them to be disappointed. But they asked me about it a few days later, and I had to tell them the truth. They were upset - not because I'd failed but because I hadn't told them. They said I have to face up to my problems, overcome difficulties and not try to escape from crises. I felt worse about letting my parents down than doing badly in my test. Katrina Weiss I don't get in trouble often, but I do get into frequent heated arguments with my mother. Once when I was in the process of dyeing my hair, my mother called for dinner. With my hair all wet and pinned up, I didn't feel like dressing up so I just went down in my underclothes and a towel. My mother immediately dismissed me, telling me I should dress appropriately for dinner, even in our own home. Of course I was fuming, and didn't have anything to eat that night. The next day, to tease my mother and call a truce, I dressed formally for lunch!
