Today five and six years ago…

Every once in a while, I like to cringe at my previous diary entries and then use then as blog posts. As always, [personal comments in brackets]

6th Grade: Day before Thanksgiving (like today)

No school! [random scrawl of song lyric is here…probably from some DDR song twitch]

My thoughts are whizzing around my head. Do I like [NOPE. NOT REVEALING 6TH GRADE CRUSH.]? Out of all the people I have liked, he was the only one I never regretted. Amazingly. He’s just…different from everyone. But…it’s in a bad way. But how could I? This is crazy! And I really want someone to kiss me. Just to see what it’s like. I’m just afraid if it happens, I’m going to regret it….[I may have been the one of the nerdiest people in a nerd school, but in many ways, I was a typical middle school girl.]

I got an actual crochet hook today! [Previously I had been using a knitting needle…somehow.] The one two problems are that I don’t really know how to use it and that it’s too thick. And I went to the library! Checked out books. (really obvious) I played DDR too!

Day Rating: 9.4 I will definitely reach my goal. [I was trying to stop nail biting at the time…sadly, it did not work]
