Parallels

When we went to the dormitory in Nor Hajn, I started to make comparisons between them and me. I saw that a bunch of people were living there in small rooms. And I'm unable to share a large room with my sister; almost every day I kick her out. There, almost all of the people have one pair of clothes. And I, who have a dozen dresses, still protest to my mom that I have no clothes. Most of the people in the dormitory only eat potatoes, but I obey my whims and eat only my favorite foods...
The youth in Nor Hajn are the very best. It's true that it's a little cramped, but everyone is warm-hearted.
