Chai (18) Years of Journaling
In honor of this special anniversary, I've decided to share some of my youthful words (from my first year of keeping a journal) with the public for the very first time. All misspellings and mispunctuations are original.
Thursday, November 24, 1988 [first entry]And thus began my illustrious literary career!
Today is Thanksgiving. This is a present from Aunt J. I got a cloth doll from [Relative Who Shall Remain Anonymous]. I like this better. Im stuffed from thanksgiving supper. I ate 2 cookies and a pear and 1 slice of chocolate cake for dessert. It is 8:00 pm. and we just looked through [the] telescope. We saw the moon, mars, and Jupiter. I saw some craters on the moon but I didnt see the red spot on Jupiter. My toes are freezing. Mommy is kniting a skirt.
Tuesday, November 29, 1988I love this entry for what it says about who I was and who I was not in fourth grade. Fourth grade girls can be so mean. I'm glad that I stood up for the underdog. I'm a little sad for my 9-year-old self who was elated to have hit the backboard twice during gym class.
Today I have gym. I truly hate gym espeshally when we play basketball. But today I have super news. I hit the backboard twice and I actually got the ball through the basket 1 time. I have never done that before. The bad part is that I couldnt do that while we were playing. I hate it when girls say bad things about girls from Russia. I try to tell them that shes not bad but then they say that I dont always need to protect her. I dont have any hebrew homework.
