Today I went paintballing!! It was so fun. I was pretty much badass. I only got shot one time! Emily shot my leg. It only hurt for like 5 minutes so that is pretty cool.
It sucks how when we go back to Duluth everything will go back to normal and Sara and Em will have each other and so will Hannah and Celeste. Whatever! I keep thinking that I need a “best friend” but it’s quite obvious that I don’t.

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.
