Dear Publishing Companies,
I know that you prefer older writers because they have more "life experience", but please don't assume that because I'm young, I'm stupid and have nothing worth saying.
Sincerely, Teenage author whose dreams are being slowly crushed
Please know that it really hurts when you belittle me all the time. I worked hard for that 92%, don't ask me why it wasn't a 100%.
Sincerely, It's still an A
I'm really happy that you all have dates to the dance, but can we please talk about something else for a change?
Sincerely, the only one who didn't get asked
Dear Spanish Teacher,
Please Stop acting like I should know all the answers because I'm Hispanic. My parents are White.
Dear Friends who judge me for not being a vegan like them,
I am allergic to peanuts, walnuts, almonds, gluten, strawberries, sulfites and cilantro. If I didn't eat animal products, I'd starve to death.
Sincerely, your hyperallergic, meat-eating, tired of being judged friend
I hate when you say that you have no money to give me, but then have a new pair of shoes the next day
Sincerely, your daughter
Dear Study Hall Proctor,
Please stop insisting that my AP art project "is not academic work" and therefore cannot be done in study hall. This thing is worth 20 percent of my grade, which, contrary to popular belief,does count into my GPA.
Sincerely, A Student
Dear guy next to me at the gym,
Are you seriously just blasting your music on speaker on your iPhone?
Sincerely, they're called HEADPHONES
Dear pharmacy that won't refill my medication,
I don't care that it hasn't been 30 days yet! I lost my antidepressants in a car accident and I NEED a refill NOW.
Sincerely, Depressed girl heavily reliant on her Lexapro.
Dear girl who sits at my lunch table,
Please realize that just because you're bigger than me and I don't have to watch what I eat, that doesn't mean that you can accuse me of trying to make everyone else feel bad for eating an oreo.
Sincerely, do you want it?
Dear cruel boss,
Please keep calling me stupid and dumb and continue to promote rumors about me that aren't true. It's ok because one day, I will graduate college and get a more respectable and better paying job than you have.
Sincerely, not letting you make me miserable anymore
Please stop giving my brother credit for 'all the studying he does at school' while 'I'm doing nothing all day'. He is actually out partying and drinking with his friends.
Sincerely, your overworked daughter
What did you glare at me for? You're the one who ran into the street when there was a crosswalk 10 feet away and forced me to slam on the breaks.
Sincerely, you're lucky there were no cars right behind mine
Dear obese man who tried to take my seat on the bus,
I got up to give the seat to a pregnant woman. I am fairly certain she needs it more than you do. She is supporting another life, and to me that is more important then your body issues
Sincerely, I have no regrets escorting her onto the seat while watching you get mad at me
