Dear Michelle Obama,
I go to school at Grand View. I hate the cafeteria food. It is so disgusting. I have a pet. His name is Bird. He is a rabbit. I know it's confusing.

Dear Michelle Obama,
I think your husband should legalize immigration. Please put a statue of me in Echo Park. Thank you. JK. No, really. I want a tuxedo on the statue.

You are eating 100% healthy. Can you put my dad in a job? You're doing a good job helping the homeless. I'm eating healthy. I'm eating watermelon, melon, mango, and persimmons. I just want to have $200. And you have a very nice house. All I know is one of the rooms is a speech room.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^i took my evidence final today. i'm so happy to have it off of my chest. now on to the next....but can i vent for a minute? why on earth do law school exams have to be so rough?? i mean really. is it necessary that a single test determines your entire grade? is it necessary that exams are 4 hours long? i just hate it. i really do.
