I just mustered the courage to open up my box of high-school-era journals - on the first page of one of them (dated circa 1994) was this entry: "I had a dream last night about Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen. I think I was Nancy. Or maybe I was Sid. Doesn't really make a difference, I guess."

Man, I was an odd little 14-year-old.

But an extremely rad fourteen-year-old! It always amazes me how prescient "young adult" writings -- I was a young 20 in 1988 -- can be. LJ gives us a way to reclaim our teenage-ness.

My parents are currently packing up loads of crap in my bedroom in Tucson so they can recarpet the house. The desk drawers in that room are filled with letters and very terrifying poetry (sorted into gift bags of all sizes--apparently I thought this was a good idea?) along with all my journals and notebooks up through high school. No wait, the notebooks might just be in that unmarked box up in my closet here so perhaps the full extent of my fixation on the self-destructing clarinetist boy is still under wraps...

I wonder where the "novel" of curious women coming to near-harm is. I forced my fifth grade best friend to miss 90210 episodes for the writing of that all the time.
