The coolest kids in America* on homework and teachers:

Hi! So you’re in sixth grade now, right? How do you like it?
Well, it’s lot different, because it’s my first year in middle school. I personally think there are too many teachers. Because your teachers don’t care if your other teachers give you too much homework! They just give you more. It’s so inconsiderate! Middle school is kind of fun because it makes you feel older. It’s more like high school. You can do things by yourself.



This is how I feel about life: I'm in the 105th grade now, and I can watch The Twilight Zone at 2 AM and eat lunch wherever I want: rad.

* Or maybe the coolest kids are Smoosh.
