My Summer of 2002

My summer was a bad one.  I had to go to summer school. It was so boring there.  The teacher didn’t even teach us anything.  He just gave us documents and wrote notes on the board, but he never explained it to us.  So when it came for me to take the United States History and Government Exam I failed it.
It made me very upset, because I’ve been trying to pass this exam for 2years now and it’s making me madder and madder each time I go and take it.  But this time when I take it in January I hope I pass it.  
I don’t want to be mad.  I just want my diploma.  This way I can go on to college. I really need to go to college so I can get my degree and move on in my life so hopefully I will now pass.
