on myself, six years ago...

"I wonder what happened when God decided to create me. I feel like He sat down and sort of smiled to himself and said, I'm going to create a pretty little girl with blue eyes and a big smile. I'll give her a love of art, music and microwave popcorn. Oh, yeah, and I'll also throw in the complete inability to understand her own emotions."

  1. Ha ha. Oh man, I love reading journal entries etc., from the beginning of college. DRAMA.

  2. Cute.

    The complete inability to understand emotions is pretty common to nearly everyone at 18 I think.

  5. I love this. One of my favorite things to do is read old journal. There should be a whole blog just for that: people sharing these little windows into their younger selves.

  7. thank you so much for responding so quickly! i just found a great etsy shop that makes them, and i contacted the owner so hopefully that works out! for the last few weeks i have been embroidering cards- "thanks you"s, stationary, etc. it takes a lot of time but is so worth it. i absolutely love doing it. i've been crafting for a while, but never really felt my work would be worth anything, but i read that book "craft inc." and it inspired me. i'll let you know when i open up!

  8. I am afraid to read anything I wrote at 18. I feel like I've grown a lot in the last 6 years. Thank God!

    Anything I've written between 1996 and 2003 would have warrented a cringe.

  9. At 22 I still often feel that way. While some things change, a lot stays the same.

  13. HA! While I feel like I have grown up and changed SO much since I was 18. I still feel like I don't understand my emotions at all most days. I really enjoy these entries:)

  15. I have never kept a journal but I *did* keep all of the notes that friends wrote me in middle and high school. Those are fun to look back on and most certainly cringe-worthy, lol.

  17. Can you be any more adorable?

    (No, in case you're wondering.)

    If I were to read something from mine it would say.."well went to the movies last night and we finally kissed"

  22. I love it. It sounds like it came right out of a teen lit book, and I mean that in the best way possible. I find myself wanting to know what little wishcake was facing at the time she wrote that.

    :-)

  25. Honestly, I can't get over your adorable optimism. I know you talk about sometimes losing it, or being worried of losing it, or being jaded by the real world.. But please never, ever, lose it. You are such a breath of fresh air.
