Wow! What a long week! Sorry I didn’t write for so long. I’ll just write a little bit about the past week… At Chippewa Falls, I went to tennis lessons with Alison and made friends with a girl named Anna. Anna was a foreign exchange student from Spain (or “espana”). Then we set up the camper and we slept in it for two days. I went baby sitting with Alison quite a bit, and I also caught a chipmunk in a have-a-heart trap! Those are the main highlights… I can’t remember or write down all the things we did!
Also I went to Ellen’s. She got two goats! They are sooo cute! (Amory and Otis)
Born in 1996
Over the coming months, I'll be publishing several journal entries a day in chronological order. I began journaling in 2007, when I was eleven years old. Even then I wrote as though I were archiving my life, collecting details about my world. As I grew older, journaling became more of a description of my emotional world.
I am an aspiring creative nonfiction writer who is producing very little since graduating college this Spring. But with this unusually thorough account of my entire adolescence, I feel as though I have been given a gift that has been under my nose this whole time.
This is a practice in forgiveness and vulnerability. It is also a way to laugh at myself.
