I am so embaressed. I put mascara on wed after school and my mom goes your too pretty to hide your face and i was like whos hiding? my brother is putting down madonna. Well i say fuck him. I figure some day ill write a book about my life. Maybe ill be able to write more personal stuff when i find a place 2 hide my diary. I heart Corey Haim ha ha derek (my brother).

7/31/89
im going to stop centering you around boys. July 20 Kenny called he nees me for an alternate in color guard. Of course I said yes. 4 the past 5 days ive been practicing from 8am-12noon. At first it was hard but im used to it. I have made lots of new friends but i need $90 for overlay, tee shirt, shoes, and more. Then i need a turtleneck and stuff. I hope someone gets sick so I can march.

10/26/89
ive been out of touch. see cathy was my best friend she liked mh. she decided i wasnt her friend any more and asked mh to go with her. she told me she "loves" him. this reminded me of 'total eclipse of the heart' by bonnie tyler. MH isnt treating me very good. I know id absolutly cry myself to sleep every night for at least a week if we broke up. Today i actually felt my heart break. It was so horrible and i never want to feel it ever again. I never loved anybody more than mh but i guess it happens to everybody. better go!

10/29/89
MH just broke up!! No big deal. Im not even upset. Last night was the haloween dance. it was fun! except i didnt dance w/anybody cus mh had to babysit me. what a dick. but he would ruin the next dance. now im singlw who knows who i will go with now.

11/5/89
MH didnt really break up. his friend was being queer. were together for 65 days so far. we were really close sunday (not that way) i dont know its hard to explain. i guess i feel secure. i carved his name in my ankle. i cant wait til these weird feelings stop. i dont have a friend to talk to cathy was the only friend i HAD. Mom says i shouldnt write in you for everyobody to see but they shouldnt be looking at you.

11/29/89
today i flicked school! eric, kat, mh and me. We were spose to be called off but werent. We hid in the woods and built a fire. It was fun but now i got home and my mom says give me your purse so i did. 2 of her friends are here and i really think she knows. (later) my mm took me to the hospital to see if i have been sexually active and for blood and urine tests for drugs! now she will know that i am not the one taking her pills!

12/8/89
today i bought NKOTB funky funky xmas. mh got me a ring and a unicorn figure for my bday! i got 2 wknds of saterday school for flicking. moms bdya is coming up, 43, she is getting to be an old fogey. better go 4 now.

And that was it for that journal. Somewhat irratic. I was a screwed up kid!

**Funny thing about JF. I met him in a bar in 2000, I was drunk and told him how I had the biggest crush on him in school. We danced, and some friends of mine went to his house for a while after the bar. We kissed. It was like a dream fufilled. Unfortunatly I had just met "Z" and never called JF. I thought it was the most exciting thing ever, to hang out w/him after lusting for him for so long!!!!**

Today's Question:

I didnt have a childhood journal. The only journal I have right now is my blog. Sometimes I wish I had a journal so I could put more 'secretive' stuff in there.
