I conveniently withheld something unbelievably funny about making out with a boy for the first time! Crucial information!
So I was really extremely nervous to be at a boy’s house watching movies alone, because I’m sure I figured that we would be making out. Anyways I think I have IBS and so basically I clogged his toilet immediately upon arrival.
I had to go secretly tell his mom, fully in tears with embarrassment. She was so sweet about it but I’m sure she didn’t understand why a thirteen year old girl had to shit a volume equal to a greek fisherman as soon as she entered her house.

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.
