My Former Self


Recently I have been cleaning out my parents' attic. While up there, I discovered a journal of mine from the 3rd grade ... I found many of the entries entertaining to say the least ... these are some of my favorites (bonus: check out my atrocious spelling):
  • 8 Oct. 1991: "If I could be a ____. " 
    •  If I were a book, I would be a good book and be paper. Lots of people would read me.
  • 23 Oct. 1991: "I pledge to be drug free"  
    • I pledge to be helthy and safe. I want to stay out of trble so I wont be a akalallik.
  • 17 Dec 1991: "Good things about the holidays" 
    • I like to get two weeks off from school. And we get prients.
  • 6 Jan. 1992: "I want to forget"  
    • I want to forget to come to school. And to do my home work.
  • 31 Jan. 1992: "It was nice when ..." 
    • It was nice when I went to the stichu of Liberty. It was fun and I liked it. [*]
  • 17 March 1992: Dear Mr. Lepechaun ... 
    • How are you? I am fine. Why do you where green? Will you bring me a pot of gold? Thinks. Your Friend, Elizabeth
  • 27 March 1992: "I'd like to sell" 
    • I'd like to sell my brother he cryies to much.
  • 28 May 1992: "I'd be glad if ..." 
    • I'd be glad if I had 1,00000 dallars. So I would be rich.



* To this day, I have never visited the Statue of Liberty ... or the stichu of Liberty.

  3. Hey, we all have goals Amanda ... obviously I was worried about the important things when I was 8.

    Oh, and Charlie, will forever be the guy who yells, "wildcard bitches" as he jumps from a moving van.

  4. Selling your brother was definitely the funniest moment for me in this list.
