I could really relate to this. I really liked the images and some of it made me laugh. This would be good for anyone with dyslexia because it is so relatable and shows them that they are not the only one.

I like the style of this, I like that it's a diary because this makes it easier to read. The font is nice and big and easy to read. It's just amazing (like yoda).
