Student or Learner
I put a big value on being current with my friends. My friend Odette lives back East, and she is not much for writing letters.
Sorry, I checked my dictionary but I couldn't get the meaning of the parts in bold type.
Will you please help me?
Current = up to date, informed on the lives of her friends.
"Back East" depends on where the writer is.
She doesn't like writing letters.
