Paragraph using idioms

When I entered university, I lived in a small town near Tokyo. That was the first time I lived alone. I felt it was a feather in my cap. I had nothing but a small bicycle. But I felt happy every day. I wasn’t afraid to lose my shirt because I always lived on a shoestring. I didn’t become hot under the collar because everyone helped me kindly.

I found a part-time job in supermarket. The owner was a bit of a stuffed shirt. So I tried to keep his shirt on and to handle our customers with kid gloves.

The experience taught me a sense of responsibility.

Thanks Yuuki, I remember my first university years too - so exciting doing everything for yourself, such a thrill at being independent!
