Now matter what you say I am not going to tell you my lifes problems. No.no.nope. I know you have things goin on in your life. But look ms.pulse lets face it. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT GOES ON IN MY LIFE, OR IN MY HEAD. I never talk in class, well hardly ever but more than one person. (Ysabella) and even though I am quiet, trust me. I have one million things to say. If I had a latge amount of time to talk to you and I was not afraid to for trouble or whatevs. I would be saying this to your face. Your "i am so fashonista" face. You are not "so hip" and well, ryan doesn't matcj your looks as weird as You looks may be. And you look just fine. But you have this sort of 'air' around you that I do not like. But i do not hate you ms.pulse. i really, truly don't. But just like everyone, you have faults. And i did not list all of these faults but i listed some more at next book.
