Dear Ex,  
 Today I get up inspired to write about you. Maybe you think I am stupid or that I'm sore because you broke up with me. But, I want to tell you that I am not stupid and I am not sore because you broke with me, it's more that you cause me to laugh because you are so ridiculous.  
I want to tell you that you are the most repugnant person in my life. You think that I never realized that you deceived me, and you also think that I believed all your lies, but remember that there is a big difference between pretending to believe something and that you think so. 
 I’m not going to lie, I loved you very much but then I opened my eyes and I saw the truth: that you are not worth it. When you broke up with me in the beginning I cried, but now I can say thank you God for giving me the opportunity to break up with him.  
Now I feel so happy because as the saying goes, “mejor sola que mal acompañada.”  Maybe you wonder why I say all this about you? Do you remember that day when I broke up with you after school? I told you it was because I found out that you cheated on me, and you told me that they were rumors. But, what you never knew is that that day I went down to the cafeteria at your lunch hour, I saw you with that other girl, but I preferred not to show that, because at that moment, I realized that I was too much for you.  
What makes me laugh is that now you act as if nothing happened, pretending to be my friend and at the same time telling me that still you love me. But for your bad luck and I turned the page where will I write a new story and you are not included. I beg God that no other girl has the bad luck to meet you. 
And finally I hope to God that you stumble with a girl you fall in love with and she does the same to you as you did to other girls and so you feel what I and many of your other girlfriends felt when you played with our feelings.

Dear Ms.Uyen, 
It’s been seven years. I hope you still remember me. If not, it’s okay too! I met you when I was in 4th grade and you were my homeroom teacher. I felt scared when I saw you because you looked so serious and it scared me. I  remember you had black hair tied up as a ponytail, you were wearing glasses, and your face was always emotionless. At that time, I didn’t realize how your eyes expressed your face, all I felt was my fear of your face. Then, one day, I figured it out.  You weren’t as scary as your face looked. You were very gentle and caring to other students. 
I still remember the time a student dropped his badminton shuttlecock in the corner of the stairs. It was a dangerous place because it was really high. Anyone could fall down if they dropped something and tried to reach for it. However, that boy risked his life to catch that, even though nothing happened to him, but the other teacher still brought him to the principal’s room. I remember the sadness in your eyes as you asked  him, “Is it ok to risk your life just because of the ball?” I realized that your face did not express your soul but your heart did.  
My point of view about you changed from that day.  Even if there was a time I did something wrong, you didn’t use anything to hit my hands like my other teachers did before. Instead, you asked me to write 10 times the sentence “I won’t skip my gym class again!” There was a time you comforted me when I had a bad grade on my math final exam. That day, my class celebrated a party and you bought a box of egg tarts for everyone. Then you called me and said:  
“Honey, don’t be sad! Next year, I believe that you can improve your math grade! So don’t be sad ok, everything will be fine!” 
The last thing that I want to say to you is thank you for always supporting and comforting me when I was sad. I miss you, Ms. Uyen! 
I love you, 
Your student
