May 22, 1995 or 1:00 AM on Tuesday the 23rd.

I kept a journal off and on from age 7 (1984) through high school. In an attempt to reminisce...understand myself....okay to come to terms with the 31 year old me, the following is a randomly chosen entry.

5/22/1995 (18 years old)

So much has happened sine I last wrote.

This week I will catch up on some important events:
  • Lost in Yonkers
  • Prom
  • Ryan Smith
  • College/Job

I only have 2 weeks of school left! Good & bad. Means I have to get a job & soon I'll have to go to college. I just registered over the phone. I'm gonna take American Heritage, Religion (Book of Mormon), English, Math, Ballet, Jazz, Theatre, Musical Theatre Seminar. Sad because I didn't get Tap Dancing; but I might get a singing class & another theatre class that would be fun.

Don't want to go away because I'll be seperated from my favorite people; My Family, Bryan, Kelly, & Elliott. These are my best friends.

Elliott & I have now been going out on weekends since February. We talk about everything & he even told me that he tells me more than anyone else & that I was like his best friend. He's always there for me & it is almost like we are inseperable pals. What's cool is that we are just friends & that makes it easy, not tense. Neither expects to much out of the other. We just know we are there if the other needs a friend. I wish it could last forever. I know when I leave it won't be as good; but I'm going to do my best to keep this friendship alive.

Somethings different about it. We have so much in common. Our thoughts, actions, tastebuds, comedy, etc. I love him to death; just like Kelly & Bryan. I know that our friendship can work; because I still love Bryan despite the fact that I haven't seen him for 2 years. Plus, I haven't written.

But I will write to Elliott because I want to know about his dating scene while I'm away. He is the coolest cat & I am so thankful to have gotten to know him. I am blessed.

Oh man, that made my day. And this Elliot guy sounds really cool.

Also the typing game was loads of fun. I spent a whole lunch break doing it. I'd win except every once in a while this really speedy gal would get up to 90 words.

Jacks, who is Elliot? I've been racking my brain trying to remember. I have a couple boys in mind. I LOVE your journal entries. Ahhh, the memories. I love how you hate everyone (me) one moment and then love everyone (me) the next moment.

Jacks said...

Kelly - Ha Ha! That makes me feel so much better. You totally know who Elliot is:) Maybe I'll tell you off line.

By the way, don't you just love the name Elliott. We would have named a boy that, but we did Ellis and now...alas.

I'm so glad that the journal postings are coming off as balanced. I don't want everyone thinking I hate everyone all the time. I just deal in extremes all the time.

What makes me laugh is how much you are in my journal. Like every single day. Was I obsessed?

Elliot is a great name. We need to talk soon, mainly because I miss you but also so I can hear who the high school crush was.

You should publish your journal. I would buy it.
