I know I haven’t been updating as regularly lately, and I do regret that. Because other than using this website to stay connected to friends and family, make new friends, hopefully entertain someone who reads it, and have a place to express myself, I also want this website to contain a record of these years of my life. I want to be able to go back later, read it, and remember what was going on in my life at that time. So at least for that reason, I wish I had written more lately even if it’s just to report on what my day was like.
That is exactly the kind of writing I used to do. I kept a journal for a lot of my life. Not always consistently, but I have a whole box full of them. I thought it would be fun to pull them out and share with you. So today we go back in time to 1990, when I was 8 years old. This is from the first journal that I ever received. I didn’t write in it all that often, but it is still so nostalgic to remember how simple my life was then. I’ll try to type it exactly as I wrote it:
March 3, 1990
I was given this book
March 15, 1990
My Brother and I PLAYED TOGETHER ALL DAY!
March 16, 1990
I went to ADVENT SCHOOL.
March 24, 1990
Barry Buged us.
Barry and I played.
April 29, 1990
Today I played Don’t let the Grown-ups see you with my brothers.
Ah, life as an 8-year-old. I can’t wait till we get to my junior high years. That’s where the real entertainment is!
