Well, I haven’t written for a while, and so much has happened. I will start with my “Henry situation”. Okay. Henry sent me a text. Here’s our convo:
H: Guess what?
R: Umm…. you got a dog?
H: No. Even though I have a girlfriend, I’m allowed to say you’re hot.
It was sooo awkward! Because at first I didn’t know what he meant. I thought he meant that he was attracted to me or something. That would be awkward because he has a gf, and he is like, my bff. Later it dawned on me that he meant it as a compliment, nothing more. What a relief! Not that Henry isn’t hot and all, I mean let’s face it, he’s beautiful, I just love him so much that I only want to be friends. It is so hard to explain.
Oh wow, I totally fell asleep while I was writing! lol

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.
