Thank you for torturing my life along with many other students’ lives. Your books are so unnecessary. Everything they are supposed to teach me will not help me the rest of my life. When am I ever going to need to talk about a zebra and their “pijamamas”, wandering storks and monkeys potato dipping habits again? I have learned this specific language since I was 4 and still, I don’t know grammar or how to use past or future tense. The subjects taught in these books are irrelevant and should not be taught.
Aren’t the books supposed to be finished before we are given a test? I still have 20 pages left in my book. Each class and each level should have their test on the book only after they finish the entire book. Personally I do not think that the specific test date is compulsory.
The stories that we analyze are so frivolous. Do you think that I have no other classes? The amount of homework I have for this one subject is absurd. I spend 20 minutes trying to figure out what one word means. I end up having to write the entire essay on Google translate just to get it in on time. Also, typing in this language is no easy task. You expect us to be able to write 5 pages when it takes me 5 hours to write one sentence.
I understand that the economy is bad, but does that mean that you are limiting the amount of cookies or chips that you put in the package? Today, I bought a bag of chips, thinking that it would be enough for my friend and me to share. I opened the bag, and to my surprise I found that the bag was ¼ filled. Honestly, there were like 7 chips in the entire bag. So I paid $1.00 for 7 chips. That is .14¢ a chip. What a rip off?!?!? Seeing as the chips did not satisfy my hunger, I decided to buy a bag of cookies, hoping for more than 7 cookies in the bag. Well when I opened that bag, there were only 5 cookies inside. I wasted another dollar for 5 cookies the size of a penny. I have paid less for a Mrs. Fields cookie that is at least the size of 10 pennies. Thank you for stealing my money.

Dear A Little Too Much,
What do you think of public displays of affection? Personally, I’m not the biggest fan. I get that you like each other, but honestly in a place where everyone can see you with your tongues down each others’ throats, is disgusting. I understand that you can’t keep your hands off, but do we need to see everything. A hug and a kiss are tolerable, but please, no farther. If I wanted to see that, I would torrent it, but I don’t. I have a question, when you are hooking up in front of people, what are they supposed to do? Do you want us to watch? It definitely seems that way.

Why I wrote this: My mom‘s ex-best friend turned out to be a real witch. And because I love my mommy and know that she is an amazing friend.
When I wrote this: After my mother received a childish text from her “best friend”.
Dear Immature Adult,
You are the one of the most juvenile people I have ever met. I feel like I have done so much in the name of friendship: I missed school to go to your wedding, I stayed up with you the night before your wedding and convinced you to walk down the aisle, I let you have my mom for a week (even though I really needed her here with me), and I even remembered your birthday.
When have you taken the time out of your life to remember anything that has to do with me? I had major surgery and where were you, not even a phone call to see if I was okay. But yet I still try and keep up a relationship with you to no avail. I contact you repeatedly and you do not respond in any way, shape or form; not to my texts, my Facebook messages, my wall posts, or my emails. What did I do? What did my mother do? I know what she did; she took time out of her life and mine to be there for you when you needed her. What is my crime? I am her daughter. I really needed you. You were like a big sister to me; I thought I could count on you and that you were my friend. But now I see that I was wrong and it is sad that you are not what I thought. I am sorry for your hurt because it must be so great for you, an adult to act this way to me. I hope that you and your husband are happy and have a nice life.
Why do you always treat me like dirt? I would really appreciate being included in your lunch plans once in a while. Like after school when you go out, maybe you should consider asking me to join. When I invite you to my house, you ALWAYS say that you have to study and then I find out that you lied and went out with other people. Why have I been at home so much, not just because of all my studying, but also because of you.
Honestly, did I make the right choice by making you my best friend? Obviously you are only my friend when it is convenient for you, but when I need comfort, you don’t even give me the time of day. When I told you that “I would do anything to make you happy” your response was “thanks”. What type of response is “thanks”? I’ll tell you what it is. It is you trying to get rid of me. Well guess what, I got your hints. I’M GONE. I’M DONE.
It is kind of a let down. This always tends to happen with my friends and me. I put in 100% of the effort because you put in none. You say that you feel like you are always the one putting all the effort in, but let me just tell you, YOU’RE NOT! I’m sick and tired being a stepping mat for you to walk all over. So I have decided that you need to work on being a better friend to me and then maybe I will forgive you. But for now, I am extremely pissed. You never cared about me and always treated me like shit.
Not only have you lost me as a friend, but also you have lost my trust and belief in you. I would like to let you know that I have realized that I cannot trust you. You promised not to tell other people what I told you, and you did. You promise to be a good friend, but you are not.
