Hello, and welcome back to On This Day in My History! We'll take a peek through my old diaries to see what was going on in my life through the years on June the 28th, starting with 2004! Here we go.
June 28th, 2004, Ten Years Old
I had a decent meeting for the arts and crafts club I decided to found this summer.
No June 28th entry in 2005.
June 28th, 2006, Twelve Years Old
This was the end of our vacation in Hawaii in honor of my grandparents' 50th anniversary. We did a brief tour of the area and then got on "a horrid plane ride." I peed my pants because of the extra humidity in Hawaii, and then had to sit by strangers and couldn't sleep. Whoo!
No June 28th entry in 2007.
June 28th, 2008, Fourteen Years Old
I'd really wanted my crush to win his baseball game and so I made a deal that if I went to the temple, God would make him win. So I went to the temple (not happily, because temple baptisms are hard on me) and found a scripture that assured me it would happen. And then it did! And I was ridiculously excited.
June 28th, 2009, Fifteen Years Old
Today we got a new Young Women's church group presidency, which I wasn't happy about, and I complained about my brother Nathan a lot. Then I talked about how bored I was and how much I wanted to go back to school.
June 28th, 2010, Sixteen Years Old
Amidst a very long description of a dream, I talked about taking the final for my online Health class. Then Mom decided we needed to have some family time, which is basically always a bad idea with my family, so we went on a little hike out in Pajarito Acres, while I contemplated the differences between Romanticism and Trancendentalism. I also talked about how I wanted to learn more about literary interpretation and I made a list of classic novels to read over the rest of the summer. (My challenge for that summer, read more about that in this post!)
June 28th, 2011, Seventeen Years Old
We were in the midst of the Las Conchas fire, the biggest fire in NM history, at this point, so we had evacuated and I spent most of my time watching the news reports and wondering when life would go back to feeling normal. I was also annoyed at my brother Michael, who wouldn't stop asking questions, and at the church, because they intended to continue with our Youth Trek despite the fire. Which turned out to be the best experience of my life thus far, as talked about in this post, but there you go.
June 28th, 2012, Eighteen Years Old
I spent the day reading and then watched Iron Man as part of my challenge for this summer.
June 28th, 2013, Nineteen Years Old
On this day, I experienced an instance of sexual harassment that was the last straw into throwing me into a mental breakdown, which eventually led to me finally getting my diagnosis of OCD. Basically, there was somewhere I didn't want to go for a church function, and a guy who had been kind of propositioning me for some time came over to my house when my parents weren't home to try and convince me to go. He sat very close to me and rubbed my back repeatedly even though I didn't want him to while insisting he would protect me from anything dangerous, which made me feel threatened, and I eventually said I'd go just to get him to leave. Then I spent two hours crying, and finally my brother helped me to get out of going to the event. But, the damage was essentially done.
So there you have it, my history on this day. Hope you enjoyed, and I'll see you next time for our July humor post!
