Laura M., age 14, North Carolina

School was okay till lunch and then it got incredibly shitty. Came home and did some housework and bathed the dog. Dad picked me up. Went over to his house, then to Courtney’s. The two of us went to “Chili’s” for dinner. Karen called us and told me that Sean was talking to some guy in lunch and was saying, “God, I can’t wait for Laura to come. She’s the best. I love her so much.” I love him, too. (Yes!) Me and Courtney watched “Dazed and Confused.” Best movie.
