May 6, 1995 – Saturday – 11:00 a.m.

It has started.

I did great on my English exam this morning.  I wrote about irony in four different stories.  I titled the paper “An A+!!”  It was supposed to be ironic, to prove that I knew what irony meant in a funny way.  Mrs. McGinnis laughed.

After I got back I began to get things together and pack up.  I spent a little over an hour doing that and then I stopped so I can study for stagecraft, but before doing so I wanted to write in my journal.

Ellen and Christina were in studying with me in my room last night.  We were studying for English.  Kevin called me while they were here.  He was in Virginia with Dad.  He said that our parents went to the beach.  That means Jonathan is at my house alone.

We finished studying and I went to the dinner with Syndi.  We sat with James, Krystal, Laney, Shadow, and some other people.  Shadow is this black guy who was telling everybody what they were going to be like when they grew up.  I laughed the whole night.

When I got back, I checked my messages and Jonathan had called.  He was worried since no one was there.  I called him back.

He said in a really terrified voice, “Jacob, there is a three-legged-cat outside.”

I told him that my parents were gone, but he could stay there anyway.  He’s doing well, and I can’t wait to see him.

Tomorrow is the last time I will be at church for a while.

Four more days.

I don’t know what this summer is going to bring me.  I don’t know about Emily.  I would love to work with the skit group.  Give me a place Lord, please.

I came to this land with nothing, but now I am leaving with a heart full of love and a scar on my forehead.
