Due to recent events outside of my control, I won't be needing items 1 through 3 in the foreseeable future. I can't give up the dream of beautiful brown skin (see item #6), even though I am perpetually pale and freckled. The pimples seem to have subsided, though. Item #7, paired with a skirt, is Stella's signature fashion style.
I feel heartbroken about the recent events outside of my control. I love school, and I am a great student. I am going to be a dynamite teacher.
