5. Saturday, August 1


   So I was cleaning my room and I found this notebook between the wall and the side of my bed along with a few pairs of socks, a condom wrapper and some tissues.

   I just reread everything, well the three journal entries I wrote and it was pretty weird. I wish I hadn’t lost it or forgotten or whatever caused me to stop writing. I know I’ve changed since that last entry, I’ve graduated high school and am preparing to move into my new college dorm but it would have been interesting to see how I changed throughout this past year.

   I could talk about everything that has happened since then but there isn’t really much. In between the sleeping and complaining I guess some pretty cool things happened. Christmas, the new year, meeting a nice girl at a Man Overboard show, turning eighteen, getting into a fist fight with one of my friends, prom, a road trip with my best friend. It all happened like you would expect it to. And now it’s all over. I’ve got a real girlfriend now, a few close friends who hate their fucking lives and a future ahead of me. I stay busy day and night so I don’t have time to complain and I’m still just trying to make it through each week.

   I’ve got Kerouac in my backpack, a glass of sweat tea, New Found Glory playing and I know everything is going to be okay.

Well I hope so.
