This very short blog series is from a recently discovered print-out (dot matrix on perforated computer paper) of a short-lived journal that I kept during the final semester of my senior year at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, CA — in 1987.
I have replaced names with random initials, though those who were in my life during that time will easily be able to figure out who everyone is. I have also kept everything as is with helpful clarifications in [brackets].

Today is Valentine’s Day and it’s also N.O.’s b-day. L., B., K., and I are going to have lunch today.
K. J. called last night. That surprised me. She said that she’s going to Ashland. She wanted to know if I was going to go. I told her I might, I really don’t know if it would be such a good idea for me to go. It all depends on what happens between K. and me.
I can only hope.
