It's been a while since we've done one of these, so for today, here's a "on this day" post! I'll go through my old journals and tell you what happened on February 25th throughout the years of my life, starting in 2005. Hopefully there'll be something interesting!
February 25th, 2004, Fourth Grade
My brother broke my sewing needle, but I found a pen and my recorder.
February 25th, 2005, Fifth Grade
Apparently, it was a "perfect" day, but I don't elaborate on why.
*No February 25th entry in 2006 or 2007*
February 25th, 2008, Eighth Grade
Today, we started SBA testing, and I helped a friend study on the bus. I thought a lot about how I was getting contacts soon! We practiced hard in Orchestra for the ASTA Festival, and a girl in PE told me that she had the same shirt as me but it looked better on me, which made me feel slightly uncomfortable.
February 25th, 2009, Ninth Grade
I was recovering from being sick and was apparently both quite dizzy and very grumpy at how few people cared that I was back at school again. I was also upset because an agent had rejected me.
February 25th, 2010, Tenth Grade
I went through school as usual. There was a fire drill at one point, and my hip was causing me a lot of trouble. Us LDS kids were given cards to invite people to a lesson thing, which I didn't do, but one of the guys was giving them out to all his "friends" and they kept ripping them up, which was really sad.
February 25th, 2011, Eleventh Grade
I got a really bad sore throat and had to stay home, which was extremely upsetting for me because I was supposed to be going on my first date, finally, and so I sat around and watched Harry Potter and was depressed, and I wrote this long sad thing about how clearly I was not meant to live an epic life but to sit on the sidelines instead.
February 25th, 2012, Twelfth Grade
Today I went to Adams State's "Discovery Day" to prepare to attend the next year. Though very stressed out by social expectations, I did like the school as much as I had every other time I went. I auditioned at the music department with cello and voice and was told that if I declared Music as a major instead of a minor, I would get a scholarship. So I spent the rest of the day trying to decide what to do with my life.
February 25th, 2013, Freshman Year of College
I woke up excruciatingly grumpy, and the first couple of pages of the entry here are mostly the word "no." I took a nap after my first class, though, and then felt somewhat better. I stumbled my way through the rest of the day, was grateful for the existence of my friends, did enjoy working on my editing job, practiced for a cello concert, and very gladly went back to bed.
February 25th, 2014, Sophomore Year of College
Now at BYU-Idaho, I wrote the script for a Lit project where we were filming an adaptation of a short story, most of which appeared in the text of my journal because I totally do my homework in class all the time. I worried that overeating may have become a replacement compulsion for my self-mutilation. Then I spent the evening watching Supernatural.
Thanks for reading, and come back next time for a pic roll!
