Dear Diary

June 19, 2013

Where do we go from here?

Britney

This week was too hectic and full of different things like the New York State Earth Science Regents Exam and graduation rehearsals and ceremonies and trying to capture memories that are slowly slipping away as everyone readies themselves for the incoming force that is high school. As it gets closer I can feel its gravitational pull getting stronger, pulling me out of middle school.

Everything is a blur. I keep forgetting to do the simplest things, like writing back my pen pal (sorry) and handing in textbooks. Handing in textbooks is the worst, because I have lug to school a backpack that feels like a boulder, and I must let go of yet another memento of my last year of middle school. Memories of this year play in my mind: Sitting at my desk in midwinter, groaning about wanting to graduate already. Hours spent talking to my best friend about high school and crushes and the universe. Wishing for summer. What happens next? Will high school be better or worse? ♦

    Naomi, Ruby, and Briteny: I so feel you guys (also Katherine)! It is amazing how you basically read the minds of Rookie readers ( even though the “send in your stuff” probably has a lot to do with it). Anyways, great job- these we’re really fun to read!

    College is generally British for the last two years of school (also known as sixth form college) and not ‘high school’. Secondary school (ages 11 to 18) would be a close translation to high school I suppose, although in America that would include middle school. Sorry to be so pedantic! The terms used differ from school to school here so it’s difficult. Some places even use the american ‘high school’ wording’

    Anyway, I thought finishing sixth form would be a huge relief too and I would get to do all these fun things and relax but then I got a sucky summer job cleaning dishes for 8 hours a day for minimum wage. :c

    I hate talking about weight because of HOW PEOPLE TREAT IT.

    For sailing weight is a big topic because it’s makes a difference in the game (No weight is beneficial, just different to sail). And it could be a healthy, regular topic. However, if you say you’re light for your boat, people always are like AWW YOU’RE SO LUCKY. No, it just means they have to work harder. If it were discussed in a better way, people could actually work on how it effects sailing. It’s actually pretty cool on a psychical level.

    I wish people could talk about weight with more sense.

    Also, I loved all of them. As always.

    <3 Unicorn

    Katherine’s diary is so funny!! “McFlurries are the only truth in the world” I think I’ll make a tee with that quote hahaha (no, srsly).

    And I loved in Ruby’s diary when she talks about Sam!! I wish I felt that way about someone…

    Just thought I’d pop by and say that, not only are all of these entries fantastic, but Ruby: yours resonated the most with me because it puts in to words what I can’t about my best friend. It’s really a beautiful entry (as well as them all!).

    Naomi, your entry was so beautiful! Caitlin, I adore your illustration as always. Britney, Ruby and Katherine, I love you all! <3

    Naomi, your last paragraph filled my head and made me almost cry. Your mind so often perfectly expresses my loves and hopes and fears.

    Naomi and Ruby, I’m in a world between your two, and you make it feel so dreamlike, like the best there could be.

    I guess I’m saying thank you.

    Naomi,

    “Where the myth fails, human love begins. Then we love a human being, not a dream, a human being with flaws.”

    Only when we are vulnerable and transparent, can we begin to truly love.

    Here’s to hoping Liam Payne (my future husband, duh) doesn’t like weird wall paper.
