Yesterday I woke up in a hotel room in Rochester and went to sleep in Dee’s bed. Right now I’m laying in his bed and I am the second most comfortable I have been in weeks, but the first was last night. We were laying on the trampoline and watching the stars, holding hands while my head was on his shoulder. Then he asked me, “Is it alright if I kiss you right now?” I paused and looked up at him and smiled and he said “Is that a yes?” And I nodded and he kissed me. On the way back he held my hand and rubbed his thumb back and forth on my palm!!!!

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. View all posts by uuggla
