From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Anne says that if the war isn’t over by the coming September, she’ll never go back to school because she doesn’t want to be so far behind everyone else. But then she decides to work hard at her schoolwork again so she can eventually be a journalist.
She describes a crying episode. Or rather episodes when she can’t hold herself together when alone. It’s descriptions like these that remind you how much stress and fear Anne lives with every day.
Anne has big dreams. She wants to be a writer, impact people, and be immortalized by her writing. Isn’t this sadly ironic? But also nice that her dream came true?
