Laura M., age 14, North Carolina

Wore my new outfit to school and got lots of compliments. Got a school pic of Courtney (finally). I was a little happier than usual today. Came home and got kinda sad ’cause all I had to do was sit around. Didn’t get much done. No news on the transfer. I’m so ready to know — but a little scared. God, hope it’s “yes” so bad. Went to “Madrigal Dinner” with Em, Eddie, his friend, her son. Got home at 10:00.
