Today is the final day of the blog challenge. The topic is:
Link up a post you wrote on this day (September 28th) from a previous year. If you didn’t publish something on the 28th, link up a post from that week.
However, since I just started blogging a few months ago, I do not have any older posts to link up to. What I do have are my journals from my younger days. You know, the old fashioned blog except you didn't put it out there for everyone to read. I have pulled my old journals out and found an entry from my youth that was written in the fall.
I have left out the names of my classmates.
October 28, 1988
(my freshman year of high school)
Homecoming last night was okay. It could have been much, much better. Such as if boy-one would have asked me instead of girl-one. I can't believe she actually asked him if he was going to pay before she gave her answer. I cried all night practically. I did dance "Shook Me All Night Long" with him but it was nothing major. I watched him dance a slow dance with girl-one. I would have traded her places. He held her sooo close. As I danced I imagined it was with him.
Boy-two asked me to dance about five slow dances. I got so sick of it. I began dreading slow songs. When I saw him coming, I wanted to get lost. I don't have anything against him but, well you know.
I was happy to see boy-one follow girl-one everywhere. She ignored him too. She said something like she's only danced with boy-one. I watched her dance with as many boys as she could. Boy-one can dance with me as much as he wants.
I had forgotten all of the ups and downs of my teenage years. Luckily I immortalized them in my journals. Perhaps I will draw from them for future blog posts.
