Apr 14 – Journal Entry

I’m proud of myself. I’ve written or transposed, 62 posts since July of 2019. I had a few false starts, but I’ve been consistent with posting since February. I found my groove. Groovy! 🙂

Once I find my teenage journals, I will add those as well. I started keeping a list of all the things I want to write about:

  1. When I fell in love with my drum lesson teacher
  2. Horrible dates – I have about five that are noteworthy
  3. Mom finding my love letter to a classmate
  4. My run-away-from-home adventures 
  5. Joyrides in stolen cars with friends
  6. Love in an elevator (joking – that’s a song)
  7. Ride alongs with my mom to investigate her cheating bf
  8. My first time

So … I’m thinking I’m never going to hear from Dog Walker ever again and then I get a text.

Hey Sam


Sorry I’ve been MIA … This covid thing is frustrating

No worries

Thanks. I’m sure you’re frustrated too + image of his motorcycle

Sweet – I reply to the bike pic and I’m thinking, your feeling are your own, don’t put them on me.

I am not frustrated

He talks about not being able to go outside and the weather – that’s a sure sign it’s over 🙂 AND that explains why he was MIA; he couldn’t go outside!

Every text I get, I think about whether I want to reply – but I don’t want to be that person. I am not a player of games. Although I do love board games, card games and a few video games. Mind games, not so much – they make me feel icky!

We talk here and there throughout the day. I didn’t bother asking him to unpack “This COVID thing is frustrating.” What are you frustrated about? It’s COVID season. Nobody tries to play winter games in the summertime, unless you’re at a year-round ski resort.

Anyway, it goes where it goes.

As I talk less and listen more, I am happy!
