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.
Summer is not meant for schoolwork, but for a break. By giving me summer homework, you are taking away my break. Don’t you think that 3 books, 3 packets and a few essays is a little too much work to do during my summer? The last month of my summer, I spent in my room doing my homework, and I still didn’t finish all of it. I am a slow reader, writing by hand takes me a long time, and it is all just plain boring. I didn’t even have time to see my friends because I was doing homework.
Now I expected that in my classes, we would go over the summer homework during at least the first few classes, but no. In ALL my classes, we had a test on the summer assignments, but never went over the concepts learned or the themes we read. Let me just tell you something: I DID NOT LEARN A SINGLE THING BY “TEAHCING” MYSELF, ESPECIALLY DURING THE SUMMER.
One thing I learned this summer- what it is like to have STRESS!
