Marcy S., age 19, Missouri


Bright and windy and cold. Had cramps at noon something awful!! Real good lunch. Did shorthand during siesta. Then spent rest of afternoon studying for history test. Had more fun!! Betty finished around 4 and thought I was crazy to spend so much time on it but my brain needed the exercises and I really enjoyed memorizing and concentrating! Went in and talked to Mary Jo and Jane awhile. Good dinner. Spent evening studying history again – until 11:30. Jane brought us a roll. To bed at 12. Felt as if I knew something, though.
