INTRODUCTION: My First Diary / Justice For Girls
Mom! Can I pretty please have this diary?
Okay sweetheart, but you have to use it!
Okay where do I start?
Wow. I wrote for 2 hours, but I feel way better.
How are you doing aunty?
Hey Alesha! Tell me. Do you still write when you don't know what to do like when we were kids?
LeeLee I will be fine! I feel great.
I actually do. You should try it.
I pray she gets better.
Maybe I should stress right too.
How did I start writing? This is the story of my first journal. I needed some way to pour out my 4th grade drama without telling the world my secrets.
Honey, I know it has been hectic lately, but you should try to confront it like the rest of us.
I can't. I just want to forget about it.
In the privacy of my room, I began to write in my journal for the first time! This made me realize that writing is a way to deal with some of my emotions and rationalize the things happening around me.
WOO HOO!! Where my party people at1!!!!!!!
Should we be worried about her?
No no! She is just letting off steam. Speaking of letting off steam.. You and me?
She was not fine, and as life got harder my pen began to run out of ink. I wrote until my fingers hurt. I wrote every day. I wrote until I could not write anymore.
You have not been yourself. You do not write anymore. You are partying all of the time. What changed?
Alesha, I am happy you're sleeping over because girl we need to talk.
You are right Junia. This is not me. I have to change.
Oh God. I think I am going to throw up!
My mother was right I should have wrote about the hurt I was feeling, but instead...
This will not hurt forever sweetheart. You need to write about these things like you use to.
I was not making the best decisions, and I certainly was not writing.
Pfft! AS IF! But seriously, she has been acting crazy for the past few months.
After months of mistakes, I realized I was not living the fun of life. I was living the easy life. It was great while it lasted, but it had it's own consequences. That lifestyle added to my issues and laced them with regret.
