On My Mind: These Letters to You

Earlier this month I went to a Mortified show in the city where regular adults read excerpts from their teenage diaries. It gave me some inspiration to share some interesting pieces from the diary I kept from February 2000 to May 2007. Not religiously--just a few written posts here and there. Keep in mind I was between 13-16 when I wrote most of this crap rubbish drivel. A time when I thought Mario Tennis was killer and a boy was going to be my soulmate simply because we liked the same cartoons.

This was precious, I liked reading these, sounded not too far from stuff I would have written at the time. The Blink 182 bit was sweet! Loved them :) Have a great Friday doll x

How cute! I think mine are way embarrassing. It wasn't a regular thing I did, but every once and a while I would write whatever was on my mind. A lot of the time it was when I was frustrated or angry. lol

Sam said...

This is wonderful of you to share, its like reading a book from when I was a teen, so adorable! Thanks for your insightful comment, have a splendid weekend doll!

Kim Alston said...

HaHaHa Cheryl! You were too funny girl. I think I burned mine. LOL It's always interesting to go back and read what you wrote. To yourself, you're thinking I said that...I did that...I was worried about THAT? HaHaHa Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Haha, it was so much fun reading your old diary, I think I wrote in the same way you did! :D
I rememeber back then everything was so complicated- all the boy situations & the girl dramas! I am so lucky I survived that phase! :D

Oh how this brings back memories!! I used to keep tabs of almost everything in a lil book, but I must say it's hard trying to keep it hidden so no one finds it. lol!! I remember changing the hiding position everyday! lol!

This is adorable, Cheryl! I actually just uncovered ALL of my old journals and shredded them - I felt like the amount of boy talk was just downright embarrassing. :P

Mari said...

You're so brave! I love this post! It makes me wish I had kept a journal. But alas.

Also, thank you :]
I totally thought of how much you like Chris Hemsworth when I saw your comment.

Love this!

Blink 182 concert!! Oh man.

It's so much fun to re-read our self written histories, isn't it? And, wait, isn't Mr. A your husband now? Or was that a teacher?

Such a fun and unique post :)

LOL, what's with the crutches?

Your diary is way better than the ones I kept. Pretty much all of my entries were full of teenage angst!
