4: Inside me Inside me is a lot of sadness and a lot of happiness Inside me is the guilt of blaming my sister for the broken plate Inside me is my four year old nephew and the time he broke my favorite game Inside me is the skateboard my brother gave me And the first skateboard that I got Inside me is the lake by my aunts house And the first fish I caught there And the trip we took to Colorado springs Inside me is my first acoustic guitar And the first song I learned to play on it Inside me is the first house me and my mom lived in on our own Inside me is an F student... And an A student
5: Letter To The Principal You know what you should do?!?! You should really make the weekends a lot longer. You should make it so that we have five days off and two days of school, and then just have a little bit longer of a year. That would be cool. I think you should also have better food in the cafeteria. Also you should have recess be longer. And have an hour of school where you just talk with your friends. That would be so super awesome.
7: Summer Last summer was a good one. One of the best I have ever had. The most memorable part though, was when I went to my aunts house in Texas. That was so fun. My aunt has this huge lake by her house, and we went fishing there and I caught a huge catfish. And there are huge trees by her house to, like REALLY big trees. Me and my grandpa went fishing a lot this summer too. There was only one time though when I got something. But that day I caught like 7. One of them, when I was reeling it in, it plopped it's tail on the water so hard it splashed water all over my face . I really hope that this up coming summer is like the last.
8: This I Believe I believe in god I believe that Everyone deserves a friend In personal opinion I believe that koalas are the supreme animal, because nothing bothers them, and they are constantly at peace I believe in not believing in racism I believe that anybody can do anything they really set their mind to I believe that music is crucial in life I believe in doing what you love I believe in being close to your family I believe that things don't really matter, because we enter this world with nothing at all. I believe that the most important thing in life is not making the best decisions, it's to not make the worst ones. This I Believe

13: Letter To My Dad Dear Dad, Hey. You missed another important thing. My sister graduated college. She is now a respiratory therapist. The party was fun. Bonny was even there. She was telling my sister that you get out soon. It really doesn't matter at all to me. It's not like I will ever see you. It's not like I even want to. Anyway yeah, you missed a lot of stuff. You missed me growing up. You missed my first step. You missed my first word. You missed when i learned to ride a bike. You missed when I got my training wheels off. You missed when I learned to skateboard. You missed everything. The list goes on and on. If you were to stare me in the face, you wouldn't even know who i was. What are you even in for? It was unclear to me when they explained it. Something like you were illegally in some place, or something. Who cares, to me, what does it matter what you are in for? All it is to me is you in jail. I just loved hearing, "My dad is a fire fighter!" Or "My dad is a police man!", when i was eight. They would ask me what my dad does, and i would just say.... "I don't know." I have to be honest dad, i hope that I never see you. Oh, P.S- I'm 13 now! Love, Adam.
