It's time for another edition of Limited Too Tuesdays, a post in which I look back through my old diaries to see what middle school me was up to.
Today's selected diary entries reflect the importance of dealing with "Mean Girls." More importantly, dealing with the realization that I was a mean girl.
It all started going downhill in 6th grade.
April ? 1999 - I had a little too much going on to be bothered with silly dates.
As you can see I have chosen to whiteout a few names. Turns out I've got a few followers from my past I didn't realize. Like for starters Mel Crosby! After twenty-three years the neighbor boy who blew out my candles emailed me last night and apologized! Sadly he didn't even remember doing it, obviously I did.
The other reason for the whiteouts is because I'm pretty sure that 6th grade teacher is still around and even though I hate to admit it, I know she was a good teacher. I clearly had a little unnecessary angst going on. And as for the "fat" and "slutty" girls who's names have been blocked, well I'm not friends with them anymore, but I don't want to risk anyone beating me up.
It only gets worse in 7th grade, but those entries will have to wait until next week. Let's just say a few MSN messenger conversations might have been printed. And we all know that means war in middle school land.
*And I'm happy to report me and "Mallory Chaffin" are still friends to this day (even though she was a teacher's pet and I wasn't.)
That's all I've got. Stay warm and be nice. Someone out there might be writing about you in their diary.
