Never Taught Anything

Dear Not Teaching Anything (important):

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.

Sincerely,

Please, Get A Room!

No Kissing Allowed

Why I wrote this: After losing my appetite day after day because of two people making out right in front of me.

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.

Sincerely,

Teen Drama Queen

Comment below if you have been around people who were hooking up and felt awkward.

Adult? No. Child? Yes.

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.

Thanks for being the example of what not to be,

Teen Drama Queen

Love you Mom!


Real or Fake, I Can’t Tell.

To the pretender,

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.

Sincerely,

Teen Drama Queen

To the Management of the State of Which I Reside

To the Management of the State of Which I Reside:

I am completely aggravated with the traffic lights in this city. Today I was able to experience sitting at a light, waiting, for 20 minutes. Now this light is not far from my school, it is actually the light that turns, left into my school’s parking lot. Let me just tell you, I was late to school. Not only was I late, but also I would have been early if the light stayed green for more than 2 seconds. Two seconds isn’t even enough time for one car to go.

Another reason I was unable to make the left turn was because of the awful drivers in this state! I blame the accidents, the cell phone usage and the traffic on YOU. Do you think that 6 mandatory (for only people under the age of 18) hours of driver’s education is enough? No Way! It took me 4 hours of lessons driving to be comfortable on the boulevard in this city. Not only is the 6 hours too short, but also drivers’ education should be mandatory for ALL AGES. The horrendous drivers in this state are not just teenagers. The blame is put on you for the following reason: you made the driving test the easiest test anyone has ever taken.

One more thing I would like to discuss is the freeway situation. Was there a better time of the year that you could tear down and reconstruct parts of the freeway. Thank you for doing it at night, but honestly it still does not change the awful traffic that this situation has caused.

Please take in to consideration all the points I have shared with you.

Sincerely,

Teen Drama Queen

To the People who “raised” me #2- Broken Deals

To the People who “raised” me,

Don’t you hate it when you make a deal with someone, and they don’t live up to their end of the deal? Well I know that I do. I did what you asked me to do, and still, I have yet to see your end of the deal fulfilled. By this time, you are probably wondering what the deal was because you knew that you were never going to follow through, so you just forgot about it.

THE DEAL

IF I DRIVE ALMOST EVERYDAY FROM AUGUST 19-OCTOBER 1 WITH ONE OF YOU IN THE CAR, YOU WILL LET ME DRIVE ALONE.

So now you remember, and you are probably going to say, “but you didn’t drive everyday”. Well what do you expect, I have school and homework, I had Camp, and only one of the two of you WILL actually drive with me, and the only times you are actually willing to go, are at the most inconvenient times of the day. When I am in the middle of writing an essay at 5:30pm or on my weekends at 7:00am, I DO NOT WANT TO GO DRIVING! Honestly, I have my licence, LET ME DRIVE alone. I can’t stand having you in the car anymore. I can’t stand the radio station that you make me listen to. I can’t stand you yelling at me because I went through the pot-hole, even though I would have hit a car on either side if I tried to go around it. Honestly, next time you are in my car, and you start talking, I am pulling over and you are walking the rest of the way. I am sick and tired of you not letting me drive. If you wait until my birthday to allow me to drive alone, I promise, the few months before then, will be hell. Let me drive, and I won’t hate you anymore.

Seeing as it is October, I should be allowed to drive alone. And I am very upset and have come to the decision that until you allow me to drive without you in the car, I WILL NOT COMMUNICATE WITH YOU, MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH YOU, AND EVEN EAT IN THE SAME ROOM AS YOU.

I SUGGEST YOU LET ME DRIVE ALONE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

Too late is October 17th. And by too late, i mean

I’M MOVING IN WITH GRANDMA AND I WILL NEVER TALK TO YOU AGAIN.

Sincerely,

Teen Drama Queen
