Hi there! I’m so glad that I finally managed to post here. I missed that.
I started high school, with super weird new teachers. But hey, good news! Finally, our English teacher, you know, I think, that person who told me at my LVC project that Lee is ugly 😡 announced us that she can take us on a trip in our beautiful country this month. Yay!

I know I lost so much since I have not been here before. I need to read what you posted these days.

But... one question, which I wanted to ask you since I saw this mark...

Does “Van Cleef & Arpels” is related to our Lee Van Cleef?
Those jewels are really gorgeous. Hey, but once I saw that that firm sells perfume too!

Maybe I don’t know so much about this firm, but sure is headquartered somewhere in USA.

Ah, yes, my name. I wrote my name “Joan” because it’s easier for those who spell my name incorrectly, and not for my friends or classmates or even parents to recognize me here. I don’t want to be mocked again!

Many hugs! ❤️

          Now I understood. I never thought about Netherlands when I was reading this name. Or about Germany. Very interesting and useful information. Thank you. And thank you, I’m glad that you like my real... more
