It’s been awhile since we spoke last, but I hope all is well. In this letter I wanted to share something more personal about my life. We all have something in our lives that we find embarrassing. The photos that I have attached are things that make me feel shameful.
The first photo is of a Facebook status that I posted online after I was met with growls and groans for telling my professor how much time was let for his lecture. This situation made me feel embarrassed because I really care about my education, especially because I have to pay for it. It can be frustrating when the class takes so long to be quite. My classes are usually only an hour and fifteen minutes, and time seriously fly’s by. When 15-20 minutes are spent going over things that can be found on blackboard or the syllabus it drives me crazy.
The first photo is of a fence with graffiti. This is fence belongs to the park near my old middle school. When I was in middle school I would go to this park with my brothers and sisters after school, now I like to take my daughter here because it is clean and never crowded. It disappoints me to see that some people don’t care about what our neighborhood looks like. I have nothing against graffiti, and I have seen some really nice graffiti art in New York but this is not art. I wish people would have more respect for our community.
The last photo is of my car. We just got this car a few months ago, it didn’t even have 800 miles on it and someone stole the 2 of the 4 wheels for the rims. I have spent 2 weeks with out my car, I rely on my car for everything. The worst part is that all of this happened right in front of my house while I was asleep. I feel ashamed that I was so naïve to think that this would happened to me. It also makes me sad because although I was very angry I know that this was a survival crime. The person(s) that did this probably had no other way to get money, and they are really taking a big risk in doing this. It’s a shame that some people need to hurt others in order to get by in life.
