dear diary,

so i am at home in colorado this weekend and i have been reading my old journals. here are some highlights:

september 15, 1995:
today i went to jill's soccer practice and i saw the cutest boy in third grade!!!!!! and he likes me to!!!! (those last four exclamation points had hearts on the bottom)

december 10, 1995:
today we have to go to church because it's sunday, and eryn is so grose she gives me the worst wedgies.

march 5, 1996:
my mom made this new rule that we can't watch tv on week days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

may 22, 1996:
dear journal,
i know i haven't written in a long time!!!

august 25, 1996:
dear journal,
i know i haven't written in a long time!!! well i'm in fourth grade! i got ms. v, she is nice and she has a boy friend. well you might not have known this, but i had a lizard and it died. :( :(
lower down on the page it says: ms. v is EVIL! she is a witch

***side note: said lizard (lizzy) died because i didn't want to feed him crickets anymore because they were gross. i even had the crickets, i just didn't give them to him. i don't know what the sad faces are all about since i pretty much murdered lizzy.

december 6, 1999:
erik asked me out so i said yes. we had a pretty good relationship. i mean we hardly talked, but hey, this is what everybody does in 6th grade.

at this point all of my entries end with "G2G!"

december 7, 1999:
mrs. s - fat & crazy
mrs. b - 24, cool & married
mrs. m - fat, pretty nice, & makes weird faces
mrs. k - mean & her hair looks like a mushroom
brian - i liked him for a few weeks but not anymore because he is soooo stupid, he flunked 7th grade. when i talk to him i feel like i am babysitting.

december 16, 1999:
today i had a bad day. sara told me what kelly was saying while i was running the shuttle "paige won't beat anyone." guess what kelly, i did!

january 4, 2000:
shea has been really mean to me lately. so from now on i am not supposed to talk to her (her rule).

january 18, 2000:
i decided i wouldn't tell anyone that i liked casey, i really did that! yah, right! lots of people know, i told them. when sara was naming guys she thought i liked on the bus, she said casey so i said "stop asking me questions!" that is how sara and christine found out. other people, i just told.

january 20, 2000:
one of the bands i don't really like is godsmack. they really suck. so does rage against the machine. some of the bands/artists i do like are: limp bizkit, blink 182, beastie boys, 98 degrees (because they're hot), orgy, fat boy slim, madonna, enrique iglesias, creed, sugar ray...and more.

so, what did i learn about myself as a child?
-i was incredibly annoying from about seventh grade until i turned sixteen.
-i cared a lot about boys, probably too much.
-i was unfortunately shallow when it came to my seventh grade teachers.

i'm not gonna lie, i don't think i really like pudge in her young adolescence.

first of all, this may be my favorite post by you ever. second, my journals read almost exactly the same, except i think rage was on my "liked" band list. and I too had a sibling who gave me the worst wedgies.


megan thomas said...

I second that. Favorite post yet. I seriously can't read any of my jr. high and most of high school entrys. I want to smack myself. I especially liked Sheas rule that you couldn't talk to her. I use to tell that to my sister all time. Sometimes I'm amazed she likes me now.

Jill said...

Um amazing. I will forever be grateful for you for posting this and for coming to my soccer game where you found your one true love
