Yeah, I was kind of obsessed with the Spice Girls. I’m not going to lie. I secretly wanted to be Ginger Spice, I think because she had red hair. Anyway, their first album was the soundtrack to my summer between my freshman and sophomore year of high school. So here are a few posts from around that time. July 4, 1997 Happy 4th of July!
Welcome to Throwback Thursday. I was going to move ahead into summer today, but I decided to share some posts that kind of wrap up the Mickey relationship a bit. Nothing terribly exciting here. The first post is for my fellow Throwback Thursday buddy Laura, thought you’d appreciate this one – did you know Mmmbop is a really good song? May 3, 1997 I thought
Welcome to another thrilling installment of Throwback Thursday. Today I’ll cover some of the post Sadie Hawkins days and the fact that I kind of stayed hung up on “Mickey” for a little bit. I went on my first band trip to Washington D.C. which would be way different than the trip I would take the very next year. Without further ado, here we go.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today is also Throwback Thursday and today’s post I dub the Sadie Hawkins Fiasco of 1997. I’ll share the journal posts – ironically from around this time of year in fact – but then I’ll tell the real story, because I wasn’t even truly honest with myself in the journal entries I wrote! This involves a guy who hasn’t been mentioned
It’s Flashback Friday today! I didn’t get my act together in time to have a Throwback Thursday post up yesterday. It’s almost appropriate to be posting today instead though. Tonight, Laura from One Girl, Two Cities will be reading her journals live on stage for the show Mortified! I’ll be in the audience supporting her and I’m super excited! I give her mad props, I
Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today’s posts are some of the last from the current journal I’m in. Then I’ll have to dig out the one I started next! Guess I need to do some spring cleaning this weekend! Let’s dive on in. November 25, 1996 Happy b-day 2 me! It’s been a cool day. I got a CD stacker and three CD’s from mom and
It’s Throwback Thursday journal time again! Most of these posts are just innocent, normal teenage stuff from my freshman year, mostly during the days of rehearsing for my first musical, Guys and Dolls. I loved being involved in the drama program in high school; it is probably the only thing I ever miss about high school. Otherwise I wouldn’t go back for anything! November 2,
Today’s Throwback Thursday posts will take a look at life after D. It would be some time before I had a boyfriend again, but I had plenty of crushes in that amount of time. In last week’s entry I talked about how my friend and I used to give nicknames to the guys we liked so that if someone got ahold of the notebook we
Well I’ve alluded to it in other TBT posts, you knew things weren’t going to end happily for young Beth and D. Break out the Adele songs, time to talk breakups. October 14th, 1996 D made a mistake tonight. He told me he might not want to go out with me all four years of high school. That’s all fine and good, but what does
It’s time for #TBT. Today’s post remembers some special times with D, though I see a little foreshadowing too. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s just dive in. October 6, 1996 Oh my god. D was this close — to breaking up with me. Thank God he went to Jenni. I also went to Jenni. She was able to knock some sense into his head
