Today is my 15th birthday! Isn’t that great? Yes. I went to school and after I hung out with Celeste, Sara, Daniel and Hannah! Then I went to Zen House with Ted, Mom, Jess, Noble, Mike, Casey, Daniel, and Clara!
Daniel got me a vintage record player and Contra on vinyl. Seriously, that is so thoughtful. He is so amazing!!

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.
