Geek Gossip

Inspired by Rachel Renee Russell's Dork Diaries. Polly Oliver is not popular, in fact Polly Oliver is the opposite of popular; she's a total geek! But Polly's hoping that by moving to a new school she might just stand a chance of making some friends and leaving her old lame ways in the past. But life is never that simple...

I spend all of my cash on sketchbooks, pencils, pens, art camp and other stuff. Hey, I'm so BROKE I can't buy a milkshake at McDonald's! Anyway, when mum came home from the shopping centre with a special back-to-school present for me I was pretty sure I knew what it was. She rambled on and on about how attending a new private school was going to be a stressful time of tremendous personal growth and how my best coping mechanism would be to communicate my thoughts and feelings. I was absolutely ECSTATIC because you can communicate with a new phone! Right?! I kind of zoned out on most of what my mum was saying because I was daydreaming about all of the cool ring tones, music and movies I was going to download. It was going to be love at first sight! But after my mum finally finished her little speech, she smiled really big, hugged me and handed me a BOOK. I opened it and FRANTICALLY flipped through the pages, figuring that maybe she had hidden my phone inside. It made perfect sense at the time because all the adverts said it was the thinnest model on the market. But slowly it dawned on me that my mum had NOT got me a phone and my so-called present was just a stupid little book! Talk about major HEARTBREAK! Then I noticed that ALL the pages of the book were BLANK. I was like, OH.NO.SHE.DIDN'T! My mum had given me two things: a DIARY and evidence she IS, in fact, CLINICALLY BRAIN DEAD!! Absolutely no one writes their most intimate feelings and deep, dark secrets in a diary anymore! WHY? Because just one or two people knowing all your BIZ could completely ruin your reputation. You're supposed to post this kind of juicy stuff online in your BLOG so MILLIONS can read it!!! Only a total GEEK would be caught WRITING in a DIARY!! This is THE worst present I have ever received in my entire life! I wanted to yell at the top of my lungs: Mum, I don't need a STUPID book with 288 BLANK pages!! What I NEED is to be able to communicate my thoughts and feelings to my friends using my very own mobile phone. Wait! Silly me. I keep forgetting. I don't have any friends. YET. But that could change overnight and I need to be prepared. With a shiny, new phone! In the meantime, I will NOT write in this diary again. NEVER! EVER!!
