It’s about time I write in here. Today, Meryl, Eddie and I picked up sticks and logs from the big tree limb that fell into our yard Saturday night. So that was actually okay. And I should let you know…. David broke up with me in June. I don’t remember the exact date, but it was a Thursday. So anyway, then he went out with Samantha Talky and now he’s going out with this chick Alexy who lives in his town with him. So, I’m glad he moved on. I HAVE NOT! I still *kinda* like him. But I can’t. I did meet the guy from across the street from the cabin! I don’t know his name, but I’m going to find out! Well, TTFN!

Present day me: David was my very first boyfriend. We didn’t live in the same town, we met through a summer camp. We talked on the phone and on AOL instant messenger. It was fun back then. Now as an adult I’m glad I had a safe experience with my first boyfriend.

Today our foreign exchange student, Adela came. She’s from Spain and she doesn’t know much English. But she knows enough. We went to the park down the street and we played cards. Crazy Eights! It was okay, I think she was overwhelmed by mom though! But she was okay. And tomorrow Marina is coming to Band Practice with me so she can meet my teachers. And everybody else! I hope she likes it here.

Present day me: I remember the day Adela arrived at our home. She was nervous and wary of us at first. She got to sleep in my own room, and I slept in another room that was considered the upstairs tv room. I think she may have felt she was imposing since I lost my bedroom while she was there. But overall, we had fun experiences with her visit and I learned more Spanish!

I don’t know why but I’m seeing double. It sucks. Well anyway today Meryl had her third flute lesson at school and Eddie and me played tennis in the tennis courts. It was really hot out so we only played for twenty minutes. Then we went into the school, got a drink and walked around it all. It felt weird being in school in the summer. So after Meryl’s lesson we biked home, it took us half an hour but it was okay, I guess. And then (this is the best part) when Mom got home at 3 we went to the bank to take out money. $200 I never had that much REAL money in my hands before! I withdrew it because I got a NEW DIGITAL CAMERA!!!!!! It is soooo awesome! Nikon L4! I LOVE IT!

Bestest Camera Ever! (In cursive flowy writing)

And yeah, they gave me a $10 gift card for buying the camera, and my mom got a queen CD with it! Also she bought me a memory card and I bought some rechargeable batteries. My camera uses double A’s!

**Walmart suggestion: Go to service desk and ask to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway**

Present day me: I remember this day well. This is a really good memory for me and I loved using that camera!
