Dear Diary, I had the craziest day at school today. We went on a trip to some ancient Greek ruins. Even though Mr. Brunner was leading the trip it didn’t make anything better.

She knew I couldn’t do anything as I’m on probation, and apparently I’m on my last chance.

The play reveals both marriages in trouble and many examples of superficial values and prejudices.

I hate when people come and touch my aquarium leaving it with all types of dirty marks and stains and my anger too!! But keeping an aquarium is not that easy as easy it looks. The worst thing about keeping fishes is when they die.
Their mating with bulls was carefully 'shielded from the young girls of the house .Nevertheless these girls managed to witness the cat through holes in the window. This points to the sheer hypocrisy in Indian society about hushing up topics that are in reality not taboo anymore. Libary books once borrowed from libraries never found their way back.
