Tonight was absolutely magical. I don’t really know why.
It was an early release day, and me and Daniel and Celeste and Sara and Hannah and Emily hung out! It was so nice. We were at Sara’s house but then we had to leave so me and Daniel walked together to Celeste’s.
We were just talking about parents and stuff and I told him that he should call his mom and tell her that he loves her. So he called her right then! It was the sweetest thing ever. I talked to him about all the weird stuff that’s been happening with me and stuff. And then I cried. We can be really open with each other and I love that.

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.
