6 it's summer. it's hot. it's a holiday. i don't wanna write.

so yes.
it's here.
the week you would've all been waiting for
had you known you were waiting for it:
YoungOline in the City...

June 17, 1993
We road the metro down to the Natural History Mauseam and the Jefferson Memorial! My feet hurt so bad! James and David met each other today + we went out to diner. Bought an new journal.

Tomorrow we will go to Mt. Vernon on a boat and then to an art gallery. We are finally starting to adjust to the upbeat, on the go life these people lead. It's so amazing. They have an uncountable # of taxis, trains, and buses.

Everywhere you look people are in a hurry. It's like all they live for is work. People need to slow down and take life one step at a time. It seems that life is not enjoyed as much as it should be. people shouldn't live as if every day were their last day. They should enjoy life. All of it's wonder, grandour, + awesomeness. I think people forget about what life is truly like. As I look around you can see people hurrying through each day and not enjoying it. You should enjoy your life. not be terrified of it. I really enjoy observing the way people act and if they life fast-paced lives they can be very interesting.

I had the exact same diary... I remember the dang rose always getting on my nerves 'cause it messed with my OCD. LOL.

that's hilarious. did you fill in the front part with all your favorites? that's the bit that's most hilarifying.

I LOVE this. Especially the entire last paragraph.

Megan said...

Oh my god, yes... Luckily, I could never keep the diary habit going so most of my inner most secrets are locked away between you, me, and a few select others. LOL.

Random memory: Amy and I playing at Amanda's house in Kindergarten right after we did our Thanksgiving day where half of us got to dress up as pilgrims and the other half were Indians. I think Amy was an Indian. I was pissed off 'cause I was a pilgrim and their outfits were nowhere near as cool.

i think it's safe to say i've adjusted to the upbeat, on the go life.
