When I saw the cover of the November COSMOgirl (RIP), I noticed that my story had a cover line (see lower left corner), which is usually a thrill. But then I realized I was being branded as a Gossip Girl, which I guess I was, but I'm not altogether proud of it. In any case, I let the magazine print a page from my diary, so I'm sharing it here too. Rest assured that I've learned a LOT since high school. I still like to talk (which is probably why I blog so much), but I keep it positive!
And, after the jump, you can see the real entry from my high school diary, scanned in here just for fun. It's the same as in the magazine (except I so did not write "Dear Diary," but you can see my handwriting, if that's of interest.
PS-Something else to know about today: A Long Island school renames itself Barack Obama Elementary. Cool!
