Things that make me mad


Paulo's diary:
October 1st. I get excited when I play my electric guitar. I played last night after midnight but my neighbor didn't like it. In fact he got extremely mad and banged on my wall to stop.

October 3rd. I get tired when I have too much study to do. Today our teacher gave us too much homework.

October 5th. I get bored when my friends don't call and this week I didn't even see them.

Paula's diary:
September 4th. I'm so sad because my boyfriend didn't phone me. I always get sad when he doesn't call.

September 6th. I get interested in shopping when I have money. Today I'll go shopping because there's a sale in my favorite boutique.

September 8th. I really get motivated when I go to English class
