FC: What A Bad Day at School
1: This Book is Dedicated to All Those Children Out There Have Had A Day That Seemed Like It Was The Worst Day Ever.
3: May 4, 2010 Today was the worst day ever. My dog Ran away and wouldn't come back when I called her. Oh poor Sandy. I hope she is o.k and not cold and sick. I really miss her. It would have been nice if she didn't run away with my home work. Boy Ms. Wilson will be very upset at me tomorrow. I really hope tomorrow is better. If its not, them I don't know how long i will be able to take this.
5: May 17, 2010 Well, I got an F on my third and final math benchmark. I can't believe this! Well my birthday is coming next week. I hope things start to look up. Sandy is still gone. I'm getting very sad. I pray every night that she would come back. Dad said maybe we could go to the pound and get another dog..... I know it just wouldn't be the same.
7: May 18, 2010 Sandy is still gone.I am losing hope. I'm too sad to write today.
9: May 21, 2010 Today I actually made up that benchmark! I cannot believe it! I got a b+ now. If I make up a couple homeworks i got an A. Then I will get 20$ cash for an A! Also our neighbor said that they thought they saw Sandy around the dumps. Tomorrow were going there to check for Sandy! Today was awesome!
11: May 22, 2010 Today we went to the dumps to see if Sandy was there. She wasn't. I don't know if I will ever see her again. I'm so sad now. I hope that some day she will come home. Also I failed another quiz that was worth 300 points so i have a D now. I wish that things could come one at a time instead of all at once. Sometimes it is so hard with Sandy gone and school. I hope she can come back soon. It would be great if she did come back.
13: May 23, 2010 I know that I'm talking about talking about Sandy a lot, but I have had her since I was three and well I'm 12 now and to be 13 in three days.
15: May 24, 2010 Today was the worst of all. Our house got a foreclosure. Now school doesn't even matter because we don't have enough money for me to go. I hate my life.
17: May 26, 2010 Today is my birthday. It was awesome. i cannot believe all the cool stuff that happened. Apparently there was an identity theft and that is why we got a foreclosure. The man almost ran away but Sandy came back and started biting him. I love that dog. Well we got our house back, and i got my Sandy back.
19: May 26, 2011 I found my journal again. Boy after reading these thing i only remembered those horrible days. When it happened I thought it would never end. Hahaha I thought that those few weeks would affect my life, but they really didn't. I guess a few bad days doesn't really affect you in the big picture. I'm glad.
