My teenage diary – Day One

my teenage diary

‘My teenage diary’ was an assignment for my creative writing class. I found it unbelievably easy to write – the memories are so vivid all those years on.  I think teenage experiences often are. Or perhaps it’s because I’ve never really grown up?

Funnily enough, we have a teenager in our class and he found it an impossible task – too close to the highs and lows of hormonal-induced emotions?

So, this teenage diary is TRUE in essence, although slightly embroidered.

February 12th, 1971

Two days to go, and oh, I can hardly sleep. This year will be the year…I just know it deep inside me. This will be the year when I get a Valentine’s card that won’t be from Mum and Dad and signed with a question mark. I mean, do they think I’m STUPID or something? It’s a total INSULT!!!!!!

As I couldn’t choose between Neil Scott-Evans and Martin Oliver who are both drool-makingly dishy, I’ve decided to send both of them a card. I will disguise my writing so they don’t know it’s from me.

 This evening I sat beside the phone for three hours, thirty eight minutes and seventeen seconds waiting for That Phonecall when Martin or Neil will invite me to the Valentine’s disco.

I listened to My Sweet Lord eleven times in a row, which is my favourite song EVER until Dad ripped the record player plug out of the wall, which just proves he has no soul.

I think Neil and Martin must have been trapped in their rooms by vengeful parents because they didn’t get the chance to phone me. I hate grown-ups. They just want to spoil everyone’s fun, don’t they? Bet they weren’t ever fifteen. They just went from little children straight into being snotty parents.

My Teenage Diary – Day Two –  tomorrow.

Be still your beating hearts.
