I’m in Arizona now and it’s beautiful. It’s usually over 100 degrees, but like they say it is a tolerable dry heat. Who is ‘they’ anyways? I always hear people saying ‘you know what they say…’ I don’t know. Anyways, I’m getting pretty tan and I’m really enjoying myself and I feel so grateful to Clara’s family for bringing me with them.
My rabbit Theodore ran away the day before we left. I don’t know. It makes me sad because I fucked it up like everything else, but I guess he’s free now. So those balance eachother out. I just hope he’s ok because I heard it’s raining there today. I don’t know.

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.
