On November 11th, 1993, 12 year old me finished my first diary. It had been an eventful year and a half full of crushes, a new school and dances. I began as a mere fifth grader and along the way learned how to swear, watched friends have first kisses and get their periods and wondered when my boobs would come in. They haven’t yet, but late in Volume One I did have some exciting vaginal discharge.
Goodbye Volume One, with your soft flowery goodness and well labeled FRONT and BACK.
Thankfully, as much as things change, they will the stay the same. Volume Two is similarly soft and colorful and labeled FRONT and BACK. The updated look — from pastel flowers to a vibrant paisley — is representative of the growth 12-year-old me was going through. Who am I? I asked myself. Am I soft and flowery? Am I a vibrant paisley?
Let’s find out, shall we?
