The Rejectionist's Uncontest

So, is doing an uncontest. I was originally not going to participate, but I read other entries and some masochistic part of me said, 'WOW! I was WAY lamer than that. I need to share!'

Whatever respect you may have had for me will soon evaporate. I will pull pieces of entries that began when I was 13 years old and sentenced to a year in an all girls private Catholic School. That's how it felt anyway - a sentence. So, when you read words like 'campus' or 'campused' that means the school and being grounded by the school for less than stellar behavior.

I'm including the spelling mistakes and grammar scariness, mine and Margie's.


January 22, 1988
Met Ron. Me & Paula & Tina faught over him, but we let him choose & he chose me! I stopped seeing Nels. He's an asshole! & stopped seeing Dean. He's got a girlfriend that looks like Tiffany, the singer!

January 23
Met Ron again. I like him a lot. He's a virgin! (note added 05/19/88: Bull Shit!)

Feb 13
Got arrested for drinking underage & Genni arrested for drinking and driving underage. We were with Huey & Greg in his Daytona. Mom's pissed.
P.S. Ron gave me a red single rose! It's gorgeous & perfect, but I'm still campused from getting in car with Todd & Dean.

Inserted note from best friend Margie (who spelled my name wrong)on same page:
Christy - I seriously doubt you will ever read this again escepially since you never touch your diary but remember you are the weirdest person I have ever met & that I ever will! - me

Well, Sunday I met Eric. I met him on Easter. I met Benji on the 8th. I had fun. We made out alot. He lives in Denver. He's gonna take me to California, maybe. I love him.
I'm going to spare you guys the rest. Just take with you the knowledge there are far too many pages in my diary with a new boy name on them. I was the picture in the dictionary next to the term 'boy crazy.'

Do I seem any less lame if I admit to having many drawings of 'the bird' or rock band name lettering in boxes? Probably not. Most pages also contain far too many hearts and the words 'love' or 'kill myself.' 13 was rough, y'all. I ain't gonna lie.

Be thankful I've omitted the poetry.

LOL it's okay, Christi. Sometimes I like to bask in the memory of the freedom of liking a different boy every other day, heh.

oh my goodness! i loved tiffany when i was a kiddo! i remember my mom's friend made me an audio cassette tape of her music, and we didn't own a radio (we weren't rich like that) but that didn't stop me from carrying that tape everywhere! (i think i was seven- i was into coolio by the time i was 13)- lameness!
sorry! love your journal! you were SO wild! somehow, i'm not surprised. :)

First, love, love, LOVE your new layout. ;-)

Second, I wished I would've kept a journal or diary or something. I wonder what I would've written? Mine probably would've been all curse words and nasty thoughts. (I wasn't a good kid)

I love this, Christi. Thanks for sharing it.

The entry about getting caught drinking followed directly by talking about the rose Ron gave you was classic.

You should have posted a scan with all the crazy lettering and hearts.

Steve MC said...

You Catholic girls had all the fun. are the weirdest person I have ever met & that I ever will!

If this is how Margie reassures people, I like her.

Lisa Gail Green said...

You are a far braver woman than I. That's all I can say. ;)

This makes me glad I burned all my journals when high school was done! Glad you made it through 13 - it can be really rough! :)
