Today I hung out with Stacey. It was pretty fun. We met up at the fountain at a park downtown and walked/biked around. We went to the bookstore and was looking at a book about potatoes. We were like talking out loud and giggling and out of nowhere we heard pages flipping. There was someone else in the room! Haha. We started laughing really hard. Then we walked over to the gallery. That place is so cool! There are a ton of antiques and old photographs. That place is full with three floors! It was raining so we biked to her house and made things with perler beads. Presents for Delia. We watched some of Hercules. Then we went for a walk down to the river and sunk our feet in the mud. We walked back up to the park and talked for a while. Then went back to her house and ate pizza, then I had to leave. Today was a good day! I’m really excited for tomorrow!
Present day me: This was the first time Stacey and I hung out one on one. It blossomed into a really close friendship that held through longer than others from this time in my life. I wish I had perler beads now! I loved creating with those!!!

OMG! Today, well actually last night Tabitha, Delia, Rhonda, Hannah, Beth, and Courtney came up to the cabin for my all-nighter. So, we get up there and we start going for a walk, and “that guy” comes out on his four-wheeler and comes over to us! We all stop, and everyone knows that this is the guy I’ve had a crush on for like the past three years. So, Beth pushes me like over by him and yells my name. So, he asks us where we’re from and why we’re in this tiny town. And we just talked until it got like pitch black out. Yeah, we were all cold, so he went in to get something to eat and we went in to get warm. As soon as we got in and sat down he comes over and comes and eats with us!!! Yeah, he brought over a box of cheese crackers. After eating, we went to play LOL – Lines of Laughter. But we all just kept talking. Hannah was really flirting with him. But she didn’t even know she was doing it. I didn’t get mad at her. It wasn’t a big deal. And then we played BS. After that he had to leave. Then we went to bed. Well, no, it’s an all-nighter! We talked and played the circle game. That was really funny. Courtney fell asleep at 2:30 and everyone else fell asleep past 4. It was a lot of fun! Then in the morning, we went outside to take pictures, and to “get the mail” and he came out again and we talked to him some more. Hannah didn’t flirt as much. And I was standing right across from him in our circle! So, I think he was looking at me a lot. And he had a little five o’clock shadow, that was so cute! 😊 yeah, well then, we left. But that night was one AWESOME night!!! I will never forget it. Oh! And his name is Aaron! He’s a sophomore in a different high school from ours, and he has his driver’s license!
Present day me: this entry was a fun memory to revisit. This was the first time a guy was almost geographically close enough for me to interact with in person and possibly go out with or date. But he ended up going out with a different girl. It was probably because I lived in a different town full time, went to a different school. He dated a girl who went to his school and lived down the street from him/my cabin. My friends were funny around him too since they didn’t have much experience around guys. I remember staying up all night and then getting ready in the morning before taking pictures. I stayed in my pajamas, but I did my hair and made sure I looked good.

Yesterday (first day of summer vaca weekend) me, Meryl and mom walked downtown to the post office. On the way home we walked by the farmer’s market. It was pretty cool looking. We didn’t buy anything. Then that night me and Tabitha went to Hannah’s house for a party. We had a water fight. 8th graders and 7th graders against 6th graders! I got really wet! It was a ton of fun though! All the 6th graders had all the water guns and the 8th and 7th graders had cups of water. Haha! Then me, Tabitha, Rhonda, and Maria hung out, talked and danced to my CDs! Everyone danced and sung along! 😊
Then today, I went over to Tabitha’s mom’s house. We ran through her sprinkler and went over to a playground nearby. We ate subs for lunch. It was good!! I rode my bike home and mom took me over to Delia’s house. We watched Epic Movie (not that good) and had mac and cheese and smoothies! Now I’m home! And I should go to bed soon!
Present day me: Boy did I get into a lot of fun stuff when I was a kid. I was so lucky to have this many friends who wanted to do all these things together. I cherish these memories. They have made me who I am today to some degree.
