I really don’t like my life. It’s full of surprises and things I don’t want, for instance, brothers. I have three crazy, weird and embarrassing brothers, and Mother Nature can just have them back!
Don’t get me wrong, I love them and all, but they are after all Boys, and I am just glad we won’t be in the same school together other than high school. People judge others more than enough in my school without a brother getting in the way. They would use every chance they’d get to embarrass me and I have a reputation to keep, it isn’t easy. One of the things that are hard to deal with is my frizzy-curly hair. It takes forever just to make it presentable. I have to get up early just to deal with the frizz.
My school has a lot of groups and not just groups you can think of right off the bat either. I mean there are jocks and weirdoes and jock weirdoes, there are crazy people and nerds, and crazy nerds. I am friends with most of them, and by the way, my best friend is a jock weirdo and she is proud of it! There are quite a few friends to look out for in my school. A rumor spreads faster than a Cheetah that turns around and says, “Eat my dust!” My school is a place you don’t want to be in and here is the bad part, no matter whose problem it is, it’s always my job to fix it. This means as the name applies, drama. Yuck, drama. I hate the word, but at the same time I love it, because I get to be a part of helping my friends. Okay, but this story isn’t about my brothers, mean girls in my school, or rumors in my school for that matter, it’s about me and my drama. Even though half my drama comes from these things, it isn’t about them.
I only have a couple of girls that actually hang out with me, so that’s where some drama comes from, helping them out. I have to bring people together and chase people down. That is way too much drama for anyone to consume. Why don’t I give you some examples of what it is. There is a boy problem and its name is Brian. He is the biggest player in my whole school. He has dated many girls and has played them. He has almost dated every girl in school and isn’t stopping now.
Another person that we have to look out for is Amber. She, of course, is obsessed with Brian. That figures, right? They date on and off and Brian will bounce around to a different girl and back around, and it gets really annoying because you can’t even keep track, so those are two examples of my drama. I am guessing you are thinking that I am exaggerating, but I’m not. If you were in my place, you would think the same thing. So here is a bunch of drama and how am I supposed to deal with it? Here is the answer, I don’t, and I can’t. It’s life, even though less would be good. But that’s the life of a six-grader.
My name is Caylee Brown; I am an eleven-year-old six grader at Lewis and Clark Elementary in Montana. I like riding horses and, I have one named Sugar, and a kitten named Dakota. I have three brothers, no sisters and almost no girl cousins either. This is my first published story, and the last story I wrote, won a contest supported by the Jaycee’s. I won a family trip to the fair, eighty bucks for just food and two family tickets to two shows (rodeo, car racing, or bump in run).
