That's What Friends Are For

I was walking down the hall when I caught Meredith teasing Hilary. "That outfit makes a fat girl look even fatter!" she shouted, without knowing I was in the area, and the other girls surrounding her broke out in laughter.
Hilary looked relieved that I'd shown up, and in the midst of their laughter, I said, "Apparently someone here didn't think that joke was funny."

"Oh, loosen up, Ms. Teacher's Pet. We were just having a little fun."
I was steaming mad but I didn't say anything. Instead I just walked to my next class and took Hilary with me.
Other than this, my life after the open house is still as hectic as ever. Between the social studies fair project I'm doing on bullying, and trying to plan a workable class play, the class field trip, and the school talent show, and writing for the newspaper, and putting together the yearbook, it's a wonder I haven't split into a hundred different pieces already.
As for Meredith, she's still got it in her mind that she is the only person who matters in the entire school. She is the most selfish person I've ever met. Her little followers don't get that Meredith is all about Meredith, that they're just accessories to her, that she wears them like she'd wear a pair of earrings or a necklace, she can take them off whenever she gets ready.

I ran into her after sixth hour today and saw her sucking up to the principal. She gave me this look like, I'm the queen, I'm the boss, and you can't stop me. You talk to just about any one of the teachers, they'd have you believe she's a model student. She manages to talk her way out of detention just about every time, except the one time Kristy actually nailed her. I swear, one of these days...

Meredith is awful. It isn't fair how she gets to run things and get away with things. No one really likes her... her little minions only hang out with her because they think they need her to maintain their own status.

Uh, I hate Meredith! She is such a jerk! I hate people like that, who are super mean, but as soon as they get near a teacher they're perfect.

I hope you don't split into a million pieces! you have a plate ful, though.

Talk to you later,

Ugh. What could be bothering Meredith that she feels the need to tease this way? Maybe you should interview her for the school newspaper...haha...and then maybe you can get a little insight in *her* life. That girl has issues for sure!
