I talked to Mario in 3rd and he said, “fuck Courtney.” “Whatever,” I said, “you always say it — but you never dump her or anything.” I think I have a crush — but that’s all. Went to Shannon’s after school. Came to Dad’s. Had dinner, watched “Romeo and Juliet.” Talked to Sean. I love him so much! Tomorrow should be fun ’cause it’s an early release day and I get to go over to Pansy’s house. Yay! I may even get to spend the night with her on Saturday.
