Dear Dumb Diary Review

The Dear Dumb Diary: Utterly Magnificent Boxed Set comes with more than just two great books from the Dear Dumb Diary series by author Jim Benton for you to read. It also includes a journal that’s packed with fun fill-ins and quizzes for you and your friends!


The Books

All Jamie Kelly wants for Christmas is for people to STOP READING HER DIARIES! But where’s the fun in that? Instead, see where the bestselling Dear Dumb Diary series all began with this brand-new boxed set, just in time for the holidays! Inside the special fold-out box, you’ll find Jamie’s first two diaries … here’s a sneak peek at one of her entries …


Dear Dumb Diary,

Tonight at dinner, Mom announced that we're going to be taking care of my little cousin in a few weeks. He's like, my aunt's daughter's brother's nephew or something.
I know that your uncle's kids are your cousins, but then there are things like first cousins and second cousins and cousins once-removed. What does that mean? "Cousins once-removed."
I had a wart once removed.
And, Dumb Diary, just to update you on Mom's Latest Food Crime, last night she made a casserole with 147 ingredients, and it still tasted bad. It's hard to believe that out of 147 ingredients, not one of them tasted good.


Our Dumb Diary: A Journal To Share

Now you and your friends can write about the whole dumb world in your very own Our Dumb Diary: A Journal To Share! You can use this journal to compare how you think to how your friends think. For example, what are some of the ways you’ve grossed yourself out? If your crush sent you a love note what would it say? Would you rather get a makeover from the prettiest girl in school or give the prettiest girl in school a makeover?


Just fill in your answers to these deep, important questions (plus many more). Then pass the journal along to your friends so they can do the same – just make sure they are your BFFs! You wouldn’t want THIS diary getting into the wrong hands!


Journaling Tips

When writing in your diary, the most important thing is to share your real feelings. After all, if someone happens to read it, you would want them to be entertained, right?

No one is given a gun. A person has to acquire a permit, and then has to buy a gun for themselves.  Okay, yes, mental health is an obvious issue. But it needs to be for specific mental health problems. It can't be just because someone has a mental illness, because many mental illnesses won't effect the operation and use of a gun, or make it more likely for a person to hurt someone else with a gun. I support background checks which would include mental health history, but only if it's done right. Similarly, the guy who killed 49 people in Orlando was taken off the FBI watchlist. This tells me that there are flaws with the way that the watchlist is currently being used. Once that system is redone, then we can restrict those on it from buying firearms. But at its' current success rate? Not a chance.  And it's not about what's necessary...well to an extent it is, but hear me out. Weapons are used for self defense. No matter how many gun laws you have, criminals will still use firearms in their crimes. Citizens require at least an equal amount of protection that criminals use to break the law.  In other words, if you were to be the victim of gun violence, would you rather have with you a knife or a gun? Would you honestly bring a knife to a gun fight?  First of all, I agree with you. Mental health is definitely an issue! But together these issues can be addressed!!!! And as I said earlier, we can control our weapons. The government can create a harder way to get a gun or any weapon. Look at criminal records!!!! Even before getting a permit, or a license, CHECK THE RECORDS!!! This will help prevent these mass shootings.

The amendmant is there for a reason. Weapons are useful for protection. Protection is going to keep us alive. The human population, as a nation, and as a world! If we take away our weapons now we are all dead! We don't want that.  Now, killing 50 people in the Orlando shooting. That is just not right at all. It was not the gun's fault, it was the person. Same thing with the death of Christina Grimmie. Now, I personally believe that we should not take guns away, but we should find a harder process into buying a gun or some other weapon, and we should be trained properly! Look at people's criminal records, look at their other records. I don't care! As long as we still have protection, but less mass shootings! Omg, so true.
