Oh my! I cleaned and rearranged my bedroom. It’s lovely! Oh! And Dee will be arriving the day after tomorrow. Throughout winter break, I’ve been spending time with Clara, Sara, and Emily. Wanna know a secret? I’m really glad I put my bed on the floor, because now I can make out with Dee on it… heehee! I’m so excited for him to come see me! Plus, this week is Valentine’s Day, and Dee is my valentine! Duh. 2 more days! I’m prolly gonna go see Holly tomorrow. Woohoo! I guess I don’t know Holly well.
I got some new music, a band called Blind Pilot, on my iPod. I also put some Regina Spektor on there. And even… Justin Bieber. That’s right, that freak might be growing on me.

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.
