But always it’s the Poor I want a bit more excitement.sooothe problem is that you out grow it so fast.yes you out grow it when you are about 5 or 6 i am 8 and you are lucky I’m sill subscribed. Let me tell you why you get uniterusted.you know why you get uniterustied . Bc you get bored you know why you get bored . Well i will tell you .you get bored bc it’s always the same. The endings are always the same. The poor wins and the rich Loses. Maybe just maybe 1 time the rich could win.just 1 time that you mix it up a little bit . Yes maybe the poor would just live life. Well you know what they say? Life isn’t fair. So please i beg you mix it up😁 so please maybe some drama.😀😄😔😒😭and maybe a little more romace
