It was Columbus Day. We lit the fireplace for the first time that year, and I spent the day making dreamcatchers and other crafts.
October 10th, 2006, 7th Grade
I had a cold, and I was also in the middle of a bad fight with my best friends--something about kicking dirt at each other. My classes were normal. A boy in my science class decided it was his mission to make me laugh, and he managed to do so by telling me he loved me. I spent most of the day trying to reconcile the fight, which I finally managed over the phone, with lots of tears, that night.
