Limited Too Tuesdays- Mean Girls Part I

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.

  1. I am sure my diary entries are the same way if I was to look back at them! I have quite a few stories of the bullying that went on at the private schools that I am sure would embarrass some of the bitches that did it that I don't think I would even white out their names lol they need to be held responsible for some of the stuff they did. Maybe one day lol

  4. I love that Mel e-mailed you yesterday! HAHA! Sorry, maybe that shouldn't be funny... but, it kind of is. I'm glad I didn't keep a diary when I was younger - I can only imagine the things that would be in there! AHHH! 6th graders... the world was for sure ending when things weren't going our way!

  8. Hahaha I remember when I came to that conclusion. I have all of my diaries and I can see clearly how over time I went from just loving EVERYTHING and EVERYONE and then suddenly I was NOT having it anymore. Love it.

  12. I can't believe he emailed you to apologize. That's hilarious! And I think we were all a little bitchy in our diaries at some points. And, let's be real, we all thought we were the coolest things in the world.. or at least that's how we made it seem in our diaries ;).

  22. 1. I'm seriously dying over the fact that he emailed you. 2. "She has turned into a big slut. Still a good friend, nice."

    Good to know your 6th grade self had her priorities in order hahaha

  24. favortism is a word i probably didn't even know until i was at least 21. so i'm impressed.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha, oh my gosh! I would be ashamed of some of the things I probably wrote in my diary. Truth is, we all were most likely evil drama filled 6th graders, at least I know I was!

  26. This makes me want to whip out my old journals and go through them. I'm pretty sure I burned some of them out of embarrassment but there has got to be a few good entries somewhere...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I seriously love that he emailed you about it. I would love to have seen his reaction reading your post. haha And I pray daily that I don't end up in journals like yours as the mean teacher. I've got to remember that favoritism thing. There is a girl in my class that I swear could be you as a 3rd grader. At least I can tell her mom that she grows up and does great things. :)

  28. How fun.. I have all my junior high notes... might have to dig a few out!

  29. Ah this is so great! My 6th grade journal is filled with sob stories of wishing I was friends with the popular girls... I was at the bottom of the 6th grade food chain! I think I hid that journal when I was in high school after I ripped out all the pathetic pages in an embarrassed rampage. But of course, I didn't get rid of the pages, because that would have been a waste of good journaling... It's the thought that counts.

  32. This just made me laugh out loud at work. I now regret throwing out all of my diaries in an effort to purge myself of my angst-filled adolescence. Kudos to you.
