[In left margin: “Last day.”] We had a stupid reward dance. Pat and me cried ’cause we were leaving each other. I love him so much. I can’t believe he cried because of me. I gave the Crew and Renee tapes I made. Me, Shannon, Ryan, and his friend Steve went to the pool. They’re going out. I played in the rain again.
