Yet another day is done. NOTHING special. Happened today. Courtney and Liam are SO cute together. Today I’ve been really thinking about how much I’ll miss her. Nothing is “too good to be true.” Did homework, watched TV, ate dinner. Talked to Karen for an hour or so. Watched TV with Em. Tomorrow’s Wednesday!

Yes! Got through Monday! School SUCKED. Courtney wasn’t there. Did homework at home. Had soup for dinner. Mom and Kathy went to the mall. Talked to Karen. Good conversation, as usual. Sat down and watched Melrose. The phone rang — it was SEAN! I was so happily surprised. 🙂 We talked for about 10 minutes and I told HIM I had to go, even though I didn’t!

Today at school went pretty good, I guess — faster than usual, thank goodness. Came home and raked. Watched story. Bryan got here at 4:30. (Early!) Ordered pizza. 🙂 Watched “My So-Called Life.” Pretty good. Talked to Sean. Didn’t sound happy to hear from me, or he was just sad. Don’t know. Me and Bryan chilled in my room.

Today sucked. I hate Thursday school days. That’s when I have PAWS class and I don’t like ANYONE in there. Lunch wasn’t very good, either. But, I came home and things got better. Did homework. Chrissi called me. 🙂 She made me very happy. She said everyone’s excited that I’m coming…even people I don’t know. Talked to Karen. 🙂 Went to Eddie’s. Did normal stuff. Came home. (Brit gave me X-mas present.)

Today was good, I guess — except for lunch. Courtney got caught smoking in the bathroom, but she ended up admitting to her coach and didn’t get in trouble! *Honesty is the best policy*? Came home, changed, went to Dr. Silber’s. Kinda boring. Came home, did some Math. Went to Dad’s. Had bean burgers. Yum! 🙂 Talked to Brittany. She didn’t get her transfer. 🙁 Talked to Karen. 🙂 Did homework.

Today was OK. Lunch was better than usual because we laughed a lot. But I’m still trying to keep my distance from everyone. Came home. Went on a walk. Came home and cleaned the bathroom. Did my homework and watched the story. Ate chili for dinner. Talked to Karen. 🙂 Watched regular TV. Slept.

I’ve had better days…this one was really slow. And this was just one day out of 3 LONG weeks. Came home and went on a walk, then did homework. Talked to Karen after dinner. I love talking to her. Then I talked to Sean and told him I didn’t want to lose his friendship just because he’s DATING LESLIE. God — I have to get him back. Watched “Melrose Place.”

Got up at 9:30 ish. Showered and went to Irregardless for brunch. Very full. Came home, did homework and got depressed. Came to Mom’s. Had dinner. Talked to Sean 🙁 it didn’t go well — still like him, though. Talked to Karen. 🙂 Can’t wait to be with her. Three more weeks…
