The Agony Aunt II

Dear little parrots,
Our Agony Aunt is exhausted and she has just received a bunch of new letters asking for advice. Can you help her??

Letter 11

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I have a big problem. I don't know what to do with my future. I don't know what job I want. I have many possibilities, like being an architect, a cashier, a chef, a lawyer, a firefighter...I prefer to be a firefighter because I like fire and I like to help people. 
I am not sure because it's more dangerous than other jobs. What do you prefer for me? I like fire, creativity, history...So please, Agony Aunt, decide for me.
I want a job in two weeks or more. I need you please, help me. 
I hope to have news from you and I hope you read this letter.
PS: I want a tattoo but I am not sure if I should get it.

Letter 12

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I have a problem. I have a very big family but I feel alone. When I spend time with them, they can't stand me. When I talk with them and try to have a conversation they laugh at me. I can't tell  my problems to  my family because they never help me. When I feel bad because I've had a hard day I don't ask them for help because I prefer to be alone and cry before telling about my problems with them. I can't usually overlook this situation because I'm very sensitive. 
Can you help me, please?
Best wishes,

Letter 13

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I live with six people in my house and it's insanity. I can't stand the shouts and punishments and many other problems. 
When I have a bad day I usually pass unnoticed and I feel very alone. The economic problems don't help us and they inflict so much pain on my family. When we are in a family meal I feel separated. I don't know that can do to integrate myself. Can you help me please?
Hope to get news from you soon.


Letter 14

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I have a big problem: my teacher hates me. When we are in class, my teacher shouts at me without any reason. I am a very quiet, peaceful and funny person but my teacher sees me as an ogre. 
We have arguments everyday whitout reason but I think she has an obsession with me. Therefore, I think she hates me, and there are enough reasons for that. Sometimes I speak and shout but I am a good person.
I hope that you read this letter as soon as possible and give me a solution, because my teacher and I will end in bad terms.


Letter 15

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I have a big problem. All started two years ago when I met a boy, Charles. 
He isn't very handsome but he is funny. We started to talk and meet in the evenings. We fell in love but everything was very difficult. We split up in summer.He wanted to make un but I didn't want it. 
Now I'm knowing a boy. His name is Jacob. He's very good with me, he is the best. Charles is a very bad person because he tries that Jacob and I split up.
I'm going to get crazy because I want to go out with Jacob and forget Charles. I need your help!!
Hope to have news from you soon.
PS: I like your space in the web.

Letter 16

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because here, in Mars, we're having global warming, the same that happened on the Earth in the 21st century and the same that has destroyed the planet; here, we're quite worried but I think we have more information about the problem. However, if we don't make decissions quickly we'll all die, so please, I am asking you for advice, what should we do?
Shall we move to another planet or shall we stay here, with the danger of all the problems that would happen?
Hope to have news from you soon.
PS: I've sent you a letter because here, the Internet is collapsed. 

Letter 17

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because today is my birthday and no-one knew it. 
I got up at 7 o'clock, had breakfast and my mum didn't say "Happy Birthday!!". I went to school and, during five hours, nobody congratulated me. 
When I went home, I ate and did my homework and then my brother, who is 7 years old, opened the door of my bedroom and said: "Happy Birthday!!". He gave me a present and a drawing too.
Nobody remembered the date of my birthday, only my brother, and I feel miserable.
Can you give me some advice?
Best wishes,

Letter 18

Dear Agony Aunt,

I don't know what to do with my future because I don't study, I don't do my homework and I'm very crazy.
I'm living a crazy life and I'm not worried about anything. 
I'm very happy with my life but I don't have a future. 
Best wishes.
PS: I think I love you, Agony Aunt.

Letter 19

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I'm new at school. I was born in Ourense and I studied there until I was seven. Then, my father recruited me to the República Dominicana for the WWIII. Then, I started to study in "Isabel de Castilla". 
At the beginning it was very difficult for me to relate with my colleagues because they were very different from me and viceversa. Now, I have some friends but some students hit me and bully me everyday. I hope that you read this letter as soon as possible and answer the letter with a solution.
Hope to have news from you soon.
Best wishes,

Letter 20

Dear Agony Aunt,

I've just learnt that I got a grant to study in a foreign country next year, and I don't know what to do.
I'm a very good student and I always get good marks. I have some very good friends here and I also have my family...and my dog!! I don't want to leave my life but, on the other hand, going to Finland can be a very good opportunity for my future. 
I'm in a mess. Everybody tells me that I should go, without hesitation, but I'm not sure. 
Can you help me please?? I need some advice. 
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

The Agony Aunt

Last week we received some letters addressed to our Agony Aunt. She is very busy with exams so she was hoping that some students will help her answer them. Would you be one of her helpers?? All you have to do is reply the letter and give the writer some advice because he/she is needing it badly!!

Letter 1

Dear Agony Aunt,
I'm writing this letter because I have a big problem. I love my best friend, Peter. I met him last year and we became very good friends quite early. I've loved him since November. He treats me very well and he ignores other girls. I'm confused because my friends tell me that he loves me too since the first time he saw me. 
Please, help me!! 
Yours sincerely,

Letter 2 

Dear Agony Aunt,

I am writing to you because I have a big problem. My problem is that my Latin teacher hates me. She is the most tiring person in the world and she hates me because I am a beautiful and wonderful person. I usually pass her exams but I deserve better marks.
Hope to have news from you soon!
PS: I haven't got any problem with the other teachers.

Letter 3

Dear Agony Aunt,

I am writing to you because I have a big problem: I don't know what to do with my future. Next year I'll leave my school and I have to choose a high school but I don't know which to choose. 
My best friend studies at one high school, "O Couto", but I don't like the people and the teachers of this place; to the other high school, "Otero Pedrayo", a lot of my friends will go and it's easier to pass the exams but if I go there I will be separated from my best friend.
Please, help me!

Letter 4

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I don't know how to find true love. I think I'm very shy. She's my best friend but I don't want to tell her anything. I've known her since I was at kindergarten. We're very good friends and her parents have known me for ages. 
What should I do with her? I'm very confused. 
Please, answer soon!
PS: I don't know if I should enter "" because I'm really desperate. 

Letter 5

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I have a big problem and I need some advice.
Two months ago, a new boy arrived at school. His name is John and he's a great person. He's attentive, sportive, sensible, responsible, friendly and very funny. And he's very handsome too!
We've been close friends since he appeared in my life and I think I'm falling in love with him. But my best friend likes him too and she's a bit obsessed. I don't know what I have to do, whether I have to tell her or not. What do you think? I don't wanna be a bad friend.
I hope that you can help me soon!
PS: I think John likes me too!!

Letter 6

Dear Agony Aunt,

Last week I had a problem with a classmate. She told the teacher that I had insulted her. They almost expelled me. I didn't say sorry to her so I'll be angry forever. 
Best wishes,
PS: They will expel me if I insult her again.

Letter 7

Dear Agony Aunt,

My everyday life is not more interesting than other's but I hope that by telling my problem, someone can answer it. In my classroom, all my friends think that I'm a thief. Maybe I agree but I don't deserve this fame because now I am the victim. In the maths class, when I went to the toilet, my pen disappeared. Somebody has it and I am always the first that people look at when the pens disappear. How can I solve my problem if nobody believes me?

Hope to see you soon,

Letter 8

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because my best friend's boyfriend cheated on her and she is annoyed and very sad, because they are very close. How can I help her? What should I do? They have been together for one year.
Keep in touch.
Yours sincerely,

Letter 9

Dear Agony Aunt,

I'm writing to you because I have a problem at school. Last week my music teacher ordered us to compose the lyrics and the melody of an invented song. My group have already had the lyrics but I don't have enough inspiration to compose the melody and the rhythm. I tried to compose while I was listening to other pieces but I couldn't. I'll tell my best friend to help me.
Best wishes, 
PS: Maybe I'll finish the song on time. 

Letter 10

I'm writing to you to tell you about my problems. Since I was a child, I've never drawn very well. This year, I have a terrible teacher at university. Really, I don't know why I chose this degree so my problem is that, on the one hand, I hate my design teacher and on the other hand, I think she hates me too.
Last weekend, I saw her at a restaurant. She was with her boyfriend, a really ugly boy, so I think when she saw me, she was very embarrased. But surprisingly, she said hello to me and asked me if I wanted to eat with them.
I'm confused because she doesn't usually seem so kind. What should I think about her?
Hope you send me an answer soon.
PS: They've just invited me to her birthday party. What can I do?
