    Default go back up hill

    Dear Teachers,

    A. It happens to most college student sometimes in the sophomore year they get interested in academics again, and then things start to go back up hill.
    - “go back up hill” means “become better”, right?

    B. She loves me very much and I enjoy her company.
    - “enjoy her company” means “enjoy being with her” or “enjoy her friends”?

    C. She’s very lucky to have such a caring and supportive aunt as you.
    - I think “like you” is better, right?


    Thanks a million

    Namsteven
