Well here it is, My 6th Book of Days.

By the time I finish writing in this notebook my life will have begun again somewhere else.

It has been five days since I ended My 5th Book of Days.  Five days of joy.  Wednesday I went with Rhonda, Lisa and Wendy from school to sell Bear Facts (the school newspaper) at J.S. Waters school.  We went out to eat lunch afterward.  Nice time.

I worked at McDonald’s on Friday night until about 11:00 p.m. and then I went with Kevin, Kenny, a guy named Rodney to go bowling in Asheboro.  I didn’t get home until 3:30 in the morning.

Saturday, I directed a skit which everyone enjoyed at church this morning.  After youth group on Saturday, I took Jenna and Tenielle home and stayed with them for a few minutes.  When Jenna hugged me before I left I licked her cheek.  She always does that to me.

She couldn’t believe I did that.

Tonight we had a birthday party at church for Shurby and I wiped cake icing on Jenna’s face.

The three of us, Jenna, Tenielle and I have come so far so fast.

We have nothing to hide and we get along so well.  I love our friendship.

Cheryl went to the beach this weekend.  She told me that she went with Ryan and that Ryan was drinking.  But Cheryl didn’t drink.  Ryan, I wonder if all of this was ever a reality to you?  Please don’t fall too far, I won’t be there to catch you.

Today, we visited Veronica’s and she got out all the old letters I wrote to her and began reading them out loud.  I couldn’t believe I wrote some of that stuff.  What was I thinking?

But that was in the past.  I have grown up a little.

And by the time this book is finished, I’m afraid I will have grown up a lot.

This may actually hurt a little bit.

Bear with me.

January 13, 1994 – Thursday – 10:02 p.m.

I took my Computer Applications exam this morning.  That is the only exam I had to take.  It was easy.

I got home around 10:30 a.m.  Later today around 5:00 p.m. I called Wayne to ask him for Jenna and Tenielle’s phone number.  I wanted to see if they were interested in Skit Group.

Wayne forgot their number, so instead he gave me Shar’s number.  I called her and guess who was there?  Yep.  Jenna and Tenielle.  I talked to them, I asked Jenna for her number, she gave it to me.

They didn’t know about the VIP thing (it’s the after ballgame thing at Mr. Gatti’s), so I told them and invited them.

I told Jenna about skit group, but she said, “I’m not an actor.”

I should see them tomorrow after work.
