Dear Diary, Nov.13/84

I started on my 2nd catechism lesson. I just washed my face and mom and dad don't believe me. I hate that when parents are wrong and they think they are right. And they get mad at you. We didn't have very much homework today. Sorry I'm so messy! I can't think of anything to say. I wonder what my picture is gonna look like? Probably dumb. Celines was pretty. I got one then I lost it. We had volleyball practice today. Everybody was grouchy. Especially Mr. Little and Blah Blah. Gee!




Dear Diary, Nov. 14/84

I was done all of my Essay today so I got to do some artwork. I'm doing better in science now then at the beginning of this year when I got in heck. We are gonna do our hobo bags tomorrow forsure. I sure hope we didn't have homework because I didn't bring any I can't remember anything. I can't wait til Christmas. It's gonna be fun. I don't know if I should write to Santa Claus or not. Mom and Dad might think I'm to old. I don't know what I'm getting mom and dad this year. I hope I will think of something.

Better be going!


Dear Diary, Nov. 15/84

Guess what? I am so proud of myself. I made my hobo bag. It looks good. It's blue with white polka-dots. Now I can carry all my stuff in it. My well Celines and my Tri-Kem stuff came in. It's pretty. Gee it cost Blah Blah more to by one of the hobo-bags than it did to make them. I don't know if Blah Blah and Blah Blah could handle all of this responsibilaty that you have in pathfinders. There sure is alot. I'm production manager and I have to get everything ready that were gonna do. Like make posters for it ask people if we can use a certain place.

Today I played with grandma's computer. It's fun. I'm on the 3rd one one the second term it's kind of easy but then again maybe not. Blah Blah and Blah Blah were being snots at the end of school Because I wouldn't hurry up and finish my first one on the computer. It's not my fault if I get some wrong and have to do it over again.

I don't have very much to say. I went to volleyball practice. Mr. Little worked us out hard today. He made us run like crazy. We got our envelopes (our, papers) for ski school. But some of us didn't get it. I don't know why. If they want to learn how to ski they should teach them it's just like us. Willie is sitting beside me right now. (Being good!). Finally. But not for long. We learned a french song in french today.
