#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.

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!
