I have often been downcast, but never in despair;I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a diferent life from other girls and,later on,diferent from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest,and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side nof the most dangerous moments.
