Beth Throwback Thursday

#TBT Journal Edition – Part Two

Once again I’m joining Laura from One Girl, Two Cities and digging into the depths of my teen, well pre-teen years and sharing old journal entries.  Today’s installment brings us into the early part of 1996, the latter half of eighth grade.

Thursday, January 25th, 1996

Help! Major Ragor Boy Trouble. Ok so C is going out with Greta and I just don’t know what he sees in her but whatever. I still really like him and I don’t know how to let him go.  Ok next. I think I like D. He’s a great friend but I might want it to be more than that. One problem – he kind of likes Jenni again. He asked her back out and she’s not sure what she’s going to do. Then there’s A. Jenni and D are trying to fix me up with him. The thing is, I wouldn’t mind. Ever since French Camp I’ve felt a little something for him. So like I said HELP. Anyway, what else is new? I have a declamation meet this weekend, then Sara’s coming over, then I have church. Tomorrow we have no school and mom and I are going to the mall. Tomorrow night everyone’s coming over for Grandma’s birthday party. I’m listening to Mariah Carey right now. I’m bored.  Well better go, ER is on soon! Bye! <3 Beth

Boy my day started off okay. C is in my French class. Greta’s not. But then later in the day they hugged goodbye right in front of me. I really hate this.  Oh well, I’ll just learn to deal with it. G-night. <3 Me

Well last week when I wrote I was depressed. But today – I’m nervous! I like D a lot. So I wrote him a note and well, I may have myself a boyfriend pretty soon! But – I’ll always have a special place in my heart for C. <3 Beth

SO….did D say yes?  Was it everything I could have hoped for and more?  You’ll just have to tune in next week to find out!  Last week’s installment can be found here. Be sure to check out Laura’s flashbacks over here as well!

  1. This is awesome. I love that you were listening to Mariah Carey & watching ER. And oh, the trials and tribulations of all those teenage relationships. Do you still have a special place in your heart for C?? 😉

  2. So much hilarity! God, did we really try to set you up with A-looking at who he became that would have been an ill match! Also I totally forgot he asked me back out…don’t remember it at all. I pimped him out so much to my friends and then he ended up being such a jerk to me! Boys-seriously! Can I say over and over again how glad I am you ended up with Mr. Pants Monkey-seriously?

      1. LOL I love it – yes you guys totally did try to hook me up with one Mr. A – and thank god that didn’t happen! I’m beyond glad I ended up with my Pants Monkey too, believe me!

  3. Love reading these Beth, mostly because I’m pretty sure my teenage diaries sounded JUST like that! 🙂 I’m hanging on the edge of my seat here!
