My Elementary School Diary


Cleaning out my closet this morning, I found two Lisa Frank diaries, circa 2002, that I started at the wise old age of six and a half.

I would post the pages, but the handwriting is a miserable, illegible concoction of papyrus and very comic sans.

“Destiny and I made a “secret” trail out of a cemental path. I guess you could call it a sidewalk. It was made to carry fish & water from one pond to another. It is dry now so we can walk on it.”

I guess you could call it a sidewalk. I actually remember this. We made all these maps of our neighborhood. The adventure days.

“Jonah’s party was a stinkbomb. He got shower curtains and sheets. HAPPY BIRTHDAY I GUESS.”

“Hello. Today is a rainy day. School is in 3 days. I’m stuck in a messy room all day. Half because of punishment half because I want to. I’ve been watching the Ducks. Four are a fox, the other two are pretty smart though. In here I have craft supplies, books, candy, and a tea set.”

“There were no boys.”


Hope you enjoyed! 🙂
