An excerpt from one of my diaries that I just stumbled upon:
I’ve never thought about it but… I like school. It’s mainly because you meet friends and people you care about. But you also meet some people that you don’t like. But you’re supposed to be friendly, even to your foes.
So I guess that’s something I’ve believed for over 6 years. It’s built into me I suppose.
STOP BEING PERFECT YOU PERFECT HUMAN BEING! I WANT TO BE AS NICE AND POSITIVE AS YOU ARE!! julie do you know you are one of the few people in this world that I EXTREMELY admire?
I hadn’t realized… I knew you thought of me as one of your bestest best friends… but this is news. And I find it really uplifting. Thank you for telling me. It gives me confidence in what I do. I was beginning to think that I was becoming a bitter person. Maybe I was starting to believe what my mom was telling me. I really look up to you too. I kind of even think of you as a sister. An older sister. Because that’s the only kind I’ve ever had and I hardly contact my real one anymore. I lovee you! :)
