After a few requests, I am going to post a few entries from the journal I kept as a teenager over 10 years ago. I am so embarrassed. I have no idea why I am even going to post these. Reading them makes me laugh at myself in an uncomfortable way. I feel as if I do not know the girl who wrote this stuff. It all sounds so… silly and cheesy and dumb. What was I thinking?! I hope that I do not look at these blog entries years from now with the same thoughts. Don’t judge me, yo. All of the emphasis, spelling and punctuation is in the original, by the way:
Oct. 30: I haven’t written lately, I’ve been busy. Saturday’s my birthday! 16. Everything has been fine, except my mother and my uncle. First of all, he’s moved in, thirty-something years old and he’s back at home. PATHETIC! Mother is such an ass. She’s selfish, and inconsiderate. Well, gotta go, it’s time for Bio.
Nov. 2: I turned 16 last night (yesterday)!! I can’t wait to drive!! everyone called to say happy birthday. Last night I went out w/Georgette and Lynnece (aka Lynneye), we drank a little (Quanisha got some from the bootlegger) and we chilled at the party at Morgan. It was raining all night on + off. Me and Lynneye went up to Smith St. to see if rick was there but we only saw Collin and Terrance (yuck). Tuesday I have to escort the superintendent’s son around school. (we’ll see about that). – Peace –
When I was younger, I loved Beverly Hills 90210. I don’t just say that. I really loved it. I had pajamas with Dylan and Brandon on ’em. Little black girl with no ties WHATSOEVER to anything those fools on 90210 were talking about, but hooked nonetheless. Well, until they sent Brenda away and shit got crazy.
Anyhow, 90210 is back. Yes, BACK this fall on the CW. LOL worthy in and of itself. This revamped show is being billed as “cooler, sexier, more provacative.” Um, don’t we already have a revamped BH90210? It’s called The Hills/The O.C./Gossip Girl.
Well, there’s ONE positive: Tristan Wilds from The Wire is the token Black guy on the show. I l ♥ him. However, they better not make him spew a bunch of trite and cliche “black talk.” I’m looking forward to the fish out of water, it’s a black thing you wouldn’t understand and interracial mishap storylines. Get this folks: his character Dixon is only in BH because he was adopted by do-gooder rich white folks. Guess they didn’t see the need to go all the way to Ethiopia for a kid.
