So when I was reading Amy Schumer’s The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo this was a tool she would frequently use throughout her book and I thought it would be fun to try on my own. My parents are retired and working on purging their house so I’ve had to claim a lot of my childhood crap including my journals. Yes I was a young closeted gay boy who wrote in a journal because it was the early 00s and I had a lot of feels.
January 17th, 2002
Okay this the worst week. Omg first I have 2 projects due and one done and I’m starting one next week plus exams this week. Plus exams this week during my math exam I got low and it sux.  It’s Lindsey’s birthday and I didn’t get her anything because she has been treating me like dirt lately.  I start gym and computer next week and the only good thing is no more Mr. Raymer and no more wood tech and asshole 8th graders. 
The Next Day….
It’s a girl on Friends  Right now I’ve decided to this summer I want a Homer Simpson attitude I want to be lazy but not dull and be exciting but also effortless.  I had my gym orientation and it doesn’t seem that bad but computer does suck and I don’t want to go
 I mean it’s not exactly an episode of Degrassi level panic.
 I’m assuming I mean a low blood sugar and that is how I spelled “sucks” in the journal. #AOL
 Oh man now we are spilling the tea Also I still remember Lindsey’s Birthday is January 18th. Sorry girl no ill will in 2017.
 I remember having a lot of anxiety about gym, and with wood tech the semester before it wasn’t the easiest place to be closeted. I also remember I was in Mr. Raymor’s class when 9/11 happened.
 Must be Thursday
 I won’t spoil anything for people living under a rock.
 Spoiler alert
 Real talk: this is still my aspiration and I completely forgot its origin. Also even in 2002 the main thing I seem to care about is television.
 It turns out Mr. McNally was a huge prick but I wouldn’t be typing this blog if he hadn’t scared me into learning home row.
For you die-hard fans out there, here is a picture of me on NYE going into 2002 and where I made the resolution to start jounaling. I hope that blows your mind. Also don’t worry it’s just kids champagne and those are just terrible frosted tips.
