Today was very slow and pretty shitty. I don’t like lunch very much because I don’t like the people that Courtney sits with. Kristen gets on my nerves ’cause she seems kinda bitchy. Guess I’ll have to get used to it. Didn’t dress out for gym. Phred’s getting on my nerves a bit. Talked to him today after school. Talked to Sean and told him we’re dating and he has no choice/way to get out of it. Don’t think he minds! Cool. Now I’ve gotta teach ’m kissing good.
