My Pre-Teen Diary
Do you still have your diary(ies)? Probably most girls kept a diary in highschool and I bet they all sounded a lot alike as far as content is concerned. I don't know if most of you dudes kept diaries--I figured that was a chick thing. Anyhow, my highschool diary isn't funny at all. It's all teen angst, coming to a crescendo with the death of my first love to cancer.
So, let's back up a few years to my PRE-teen diary. Now that's one hot piece of garbage! I bought it from one of those class book sale lists, and the thing barely had enough space to write anything for each date. I wrote in it sporadically from the ages of 11 to 13, and now I'm going to foist it on YOU.
So, cast your mind back to a time when Madonna was first hopping around with really, really rat-nesty hair, and a ton of wrist bracelets, everyone went to the movies to see "Back To the Future", and EVERYBODY tuned in to watch LIVE AID, and absolutely NOTHING happened in your life, but you still managed to turn anything and everything into drama...
March 1 1984
Well here it is the first day of March/84 and there's snow up to my knees. I am now 11 years old and I've got such a crush on Mike. It's too bad that he's got such a big bum. My rabbit had babies a while ago and I'm trying to save him/her (premature rabbit). Today my period just started.
The little rabbit I was trying to save died
Today I felt sick
The Duran Duran concert went on today. I couldn't go.
I've been keeping a diet lately. Still no sign of good looking guys.
I've forgotten about the diet but I haven't been eating as much. Today we played baseball and after only 6 strikes I hit the ball and noone made fun of me.
We had a day off of school today and I'm beginning to think of a routine for gymnastics. Today my brother hit me and I cried
Life is so cruel. I'll never understand it. Just today I found a dead fish.
Why do things have to be this way?
(MELODRAMA ALERT! MY GUPPY HAD DIED)
May 30 1985
Well here it is May 30 1985. I think K. is a Jerk and Jason is a gorgeous babe and he's really nice too. I still think Mike is cute but not as much as Jason. I am so sick of school I could just barf. I wish Jason loved me.
I don't think it's fair that I can only stay out til 8:45 on friday nights. It only starts to get dark at 9:30.
I went to play tennis today with T. and the only other person that showed up was Brian and he had his shirt off and I almost threw up because he looked so wimpy. Only 2 more days of school.
Today in school I saw a gay movie called "The Gold Bug." Thank God tomorrow's the last day of school. At grade 8 graduation Jason got the athletic award. I'm so proud of him. I love ya Jay.
I'm gonna miss Jason so much. He was and always will be the nicest and most gorgeous guy in the world. I'll miss ya Jay. I could have killed T. when we went to the movies because I was all set to sit beside Jason and she took his seat. I got a certificate and a game for having the highest percent in the class for french.
Today I hung around with Lisa and played video games. I slept in till 10:40.
I went to Fabricland with Lisa today because she had to get some stuff for her Cabbage Patch Kid. I saw gorgeous Jason at the Park and after he left Cam came and told some funny stories and then rode part way home with me. I have a crush on him again.
We got a new couch today and it's really nice. I'm on a diet and I wish it were so easy to lose weight that I could lose 5 pounds a day. I didn't do anything today. What a boring summer. I wish I had a pool. I hope Cam likes me.
Today I went swimming in Lisa's pool it was 80 degrees and beautiful. I got a bit of a sunburn. I've lost a pound.
I didn't do anything today. I hope I can see Cam some time. I really want to be GOOD friends with him. If my brother finds this diary I'll die.
I now way [sic] 124 pounds! When I started my diet I weighed 135 pounds. Isn't that awesome!?! I walked over to Foodbarn to get some milk and the rotten store was closed. So I walked over to A&P and the stupid broad didn't give me a bag so I had to walk home with 4 ice cold litres of milk in my hands brrrr.
I'm going to the movies tomorrow with Lisa, Matthew and ♥Cam♥. I'm so excited. I haven't gotten any mail from Christy and Kate yet (away at summer camp) and I'm mad! I didn't do anything today and I'm still on my diet. I wish I could get skinny fast! I just noticed that we're leaving for up north on the 13 which is my lucky number.
I went to the movies tonight and the show was great! Cam was hilarious as usual but I was surprised to see Jason who didn't socialize with me, Lisa or Matthew. Cam says Gowan is coming to town. I hope I can go.
I got a letter from Katie yesterday. I got a letter from Katie and Christy again today. I saw Rocky II on T.V. and I cried at the sad parts. That movie was good. I can hardly wait till we leave!
I am not in love with Cam. I just want to be fantastic friends with him. I am praying there is a cute guy up north that will be attracted to me. I didn't get any mail today. I forgot to write that on Tuesday I found out that Jason has a girlfriend named Crissy. Boo hoo! What can possibly be so hard about losing 10 pounds and getting a boy?
We left today and the drive was long and boring (4 hrs). The cottage was plain and the first night I got a mosquito buzzing in my ear, a flying spider by my bed and a daddy long legs crawling on my arm (Yipes!)
Lots of blackflies here. The chipmunks are sooooo cute. The outhouse makes me want to puke. The Live Aid Concert went on yesterday (14 hrs) and my brother taped it.
There are 2 girls that stay near us they are: Tory (aprox. 10 yrs)
Morgan (6 yrs)
They're from a place near Toronto and they come to their cottage on weekends. I rowed the boat and got a blister on each thumb. Today we went into Dorset. I saw a cute guy.
I got a deerfly bite today and the bastard bit me on the bum. I got to row today it was great. I miss P.(brother). We're going home tomorrow instead of Friday because everybody wanted to.
I am sooooooooooo glad to be home!
I'm going to learn how to play electric guitar. How could I ever have loved Cam? I get my period again on the 25th. It'll be my 17th.
I've decided to give up on all the boys at school. I hope some cute guys come!!!!!!!!!!!
I went swimming next door today and put Aimee in the tub but I had a heart attack because she went underwater with one of her hearingaids on. Luckily it seems to be working. Actor Rock Hudson has AIDS. No sign of my period today. Oh well maybe tomorrow.
Sorry I haven't written in so long. Today while hanging out with my friends, Louise's friend Missy was there with a gang of her friends and they were all smoking and one of the girls offered me a drag but I didn't except [sic]. Yay Karen! I saw Brin, who was Louise's boyfriend in grade 4. He is sooo gorgeous now! I'm in love with Russel.
I'm not in love with Rus any more. I'm in love with a new guy named Cory. He's gorgeous. He told me today I have a nice body! I could have died. He wants to phone me bye!
He didn't phone
I am the luckiest girl in the world! Cory asked me out! I said yes!
T. was jealous today. I could tell because she wasn't talking to me. I met Cory's parents they seem to be nice. I also played a game on his computer. While I was gone Lisa told me that T. said she was gonna try and get Cory away from me so she could have him. I hate her for that. At 9:00 I brought him home to meet my mom. He likes the song "The Rose."
My how quickly things change. I dropped Cory today. He is an arrogant conceded [sic] and thoughtless asshole. His friend Adam (who is the nicest guy in the world) wants to as me out tomorrow. I just might say yes.
I went to the Platinum Blond concert today! I could see the guys perfectly. Mark and the rest of the band were gorgeous and had their shirts undone exposing their gorgeous chests! (Muscles galore!) Mark said: "Toronto - you look mahvelous" I swear that he saw me a couple of times. Chris had a long amazing drum solo. They sang "Twist and Shout" and "Back in the USSR." I screamed and got a sore throat and the crowd was so loud that I couldn't hear very well after a while. There was a gorgeous guy sitting near us with spiked hair, pink pants and a white fingerless glove. I've never had so much fun in all my life.
Friday Aug 23 1986
Boy I sure haven't written in a long time! I just got through reading my entire diary (Talk about Queer). Don't I fall in love easily? blah! As I've grown older I've grown wiser. I do not fall in love with every cute boy I see! School on Sept 2 (Wah!)
