Melissa,
        What's more, the administration in my school thinks I'm mean too
because I give real grades in middle school!

Melissa...Thank you so much for putting my sentiments into words. It's good

to know someone else is feeling like I do. It's kind of like the glass
being
half full or half empty. I try to concentrate on the positive energy, even
though it's not always easy.
