Hello from Alaska!
It is me, Agatha (Aggie). The one kids call "Mule-Face", on 'count I am so freakin' ugly. Well, I AM!! Look at me and tell me that I am pretty, which I am anything but!
Still wishing I had more friends, but school has gotten a little better, only because I go part of the day instead of a full day. Too much name-calling and nasty threats coming my way, and I got tired of it; told my parents, and they decided to cut back on my school hours. I go from noon until four p.m., and I do my homework on the bus, which is fine with me. Just as long as I don't have to see "The Black Widows" (as I call the Popular Kids), then that's good.
I still see them at lunch or when I change classes, but other than their smarmy looks and nasty whispers, I don't say a word to them or dare look at them. They know I've ratted on them, so they hate me even more. Which isn't too surprising.
I am also fighting with Katie-Rose and Bliss, who are my two (gorgeous) older sisters. I would give anything to look more like them, but no ... I was blessed with grandma's (not-so-pretty) looks. Nothing against grandma, but she wasn't that beautiful. I took after her in terms of appearances, and at times, it gets downright embarrassing, especially when the kids tease me and call me names like "Butt-Ugly", "Horse Face", or the ever-popular "Mule-Face".
Life at home hasn't changed that much, but I am getting away from the celeb phase. I am getting sick and tired of hearing how pretty they are when they are nothing but a bunch of fakes. I'd rather see people the way they really are inside. I've had it with celebrity worship!
Instead, I busy myself with school work, church, going to the mall with my family, and helping out at the old folks home as part of my teen church activities. I really enjoy visiting the old people; they are a lot of fun, and I love hearing them tell their stories! It's very interesting to hear how life was fifty years ago!
Sometimes I wish we could go back to that time, when people seemed to be a lot nicer to others!
Well, I am going to go; it's time to eat lunch and then head off to school. I will write in here again soon; I know it's been too long! Take care and talk to you later!
~Love, your friend, Agatha Agnes Deanne Gutman.
