January 12, 1999
Today was just a normal day. I wish Christmas break would last forever, but I had to go back to school this week. I got so much awesome stuff for Christmas, and all I want to do is play with it all, instead of going to school. I think one of my favorite things that I got is my talking DW doll that my grandmother got for me. She’s so cool. I take her everywhere. I spent the weekend at my grandmother’s house, because my mom had to work just about every day, but least she has a computer at her house, and I got to bring DW, so it wasn’t that bad.
I also got a ton of games for my N64, and I’ve been in my room playing them forever. I got this awesome game called Banjo-Kazooie, and it’s my new favorite game EVER! I got the new Legend of Zenda: Ocarina of Time game, too, and Pokemon Stadium, AND Hey You, Pikachu!!! Mike is jealous, because I got more Pokemon cards than he did, AND my new games. I don’t care that he’s jealous, because he’s a spoiled brat anyway. We both got the new GameBoy Color though, and the new Pokemon game, but I got the new Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening game, and he got some dumb sports game.
Like I said, I had to go back to school this week. We haven’t been able to go outside for recess at all because of all the snow and ice, and that sucks. Sometimes I hate living in Maine. We got a huge ice storm, right after Christmas, and we lost power for a couple days. Larry, mom’s boyfriend, had to bring a kerosene heater inside the trailer just so we wouldn’t freeze, and it stunk, and made the ceiling black. A lot of people lost power, and some people still don’t have power. It was crazy.
I don’t mind the snow. I’d rather be outside. The cafeteria is so loud after lunch, and I don’t sit near any of my friends. I miss Charlotte. She was my best friend in my old school, but she is only in second grade this year, and won’t be at JFK until next year. She still has my Password Journal that we shared last year, and when my mom saw the stuff she was writing in it, she blamed me. I told her that it was Charlotte, and she told me I can’t be friends with her anymore, because she’s a “bad influence”. That’s SO unfair! She can’t stop be from being her friend next year when we’re in school together. I’m almost 9 years old now. I’m practically grown up!
I get to sit near Jeff at lunch now. He’s the cutest boy in my class, and I got in trouble in Mrs. Berube’s class today because I was passing notes with Kayla about how much I like him. Kayla and Callie told me I’m crazy, because they think boys are stupid and gross, and they don’t like Jeff. Jeff and his friends are kind of mean, but I don’t care.
Yesterday, my mom FINALLY ungrounded me from accidentally killing my new goldfish, so I got to watch all the TV I wanted during Christmas break. How was I supposed to know that I couldn’t put him in a cup of water to watch TV with me? I didn’t think he’d die! All I wanted to do was watch Rugrats, but stupid Mike wanted to watch Ren & Stimpy, and we got into a big fight. He’s so stupid, and so is that stupid show. I don’t like that his dad and my mom are boyfriend and girlfriend, or that we have to live together now. His room is bigger than mine, and he always whines and complains about everything. I miss our old apartment, where he WASN’T living with us!!!
I also got a really cool karaoke machine for Christmas, and the new Backstreet Boys CD, and I can’t stop singing the songs. I might like them even more than ‘N Sync AND the Spice Girls! How crazy is that?! Nick Carter is SOOO cute! Anyway, I’m done writing now. I guess today was a pretty boring, and I’m bored, so I think I’m going to go play my N64 now, so that I don’t have to deal with stupid Mike. Byeee!
Love you forever,
