Dear Journal,

All I have to say right now is that while I was writing my brother was running around, singing the Dennis the Menace theme song and playing with his clicker at the same time. When he was done singing he threw the clicker down and it landed on his foot. Also he jumped in Marks sleeping bag and yelled “Humpy, Humpy, Baby.” Just now he farted on me.

Dear Journal,

It has been awhile since I wrote in this journal. I’m in fourth grade and am almost done with school. My teacher is Mrs. Harrington, she gives a book report every month. It’s sometimes hard but it gets you ready for fifth grade. Today we shared our alians that we could either draw or make 3-D. I decided to draw my alian his name was Venroid and was from the planet Venus. Tomorrow my class will be taking the test on digestion. Yesterday we did our skits on the liver.

Dear Journal,

Today was the day that I came home from up north. I went there because my aunt Vida was having a family reunion. When we got there we had to stay in a hotel like the Addams Family’s house. The air conditioning didn’t work because it was full of dirt. The furniture looked like it was from the 1930’s. There were cracks in the bathtub, and the toilet water was green. The pool was above ground and about 5 feet in diameter. When we got to my aunt’s they had tents with tables and chairs under them. A little bit beside the tents there was a moonwalk, and if we’d go running into a wall, we would fly off. The second day we were there my cousin Matt came. We said hi, but then he said, “look at those pretty girls over there. You want to do some…investigating.” So then we spent the whole day following the girls around. At very end of the day my cousin Frankie gave us tips on girls. We asked him to go talk to the girls and tell them that I liked one girl, and Matt liked another. Finally, when we went over and talked to them I knew I had found my first love.

Oh, and by the way my cousin Mark is spending the night because we have golf league tomorrow.

Dear Journal,

I’m, back, and in fifth grade. My teacher is Mrs. Russ, very tough and strict, but nice and humorous. She says that I am an excellent student, and very smart. Andy Sanford, a smart alec kid in my class who ever since first grade has been trying to be the best in the grade and trying to be smarter than me, is starting to ease up and is starting to slip with his work in school.

Last, on the way home from the mall tonight, I was starting to get a feeling that I had to do something with my life right now, but my brain wasn’t telling me what. It was a puzzling and abnormal feeling. I am still trying to find out what I have to do with my life, and why did that feeling strike me?
