27th April 1985 (Saturday)

One minor change at work this morning.  I start quarter of an hour earlier & Kell finishes quarter of an hour later.  My times used to be 8:30 - 12:00 & Kelly's were 8:15 - 11:45 but now we're both 8:15 - 12:00.  I don't mind at all.

Then after work I had to wait while Melissa played netball.  So I took my homework with me.  Didn't do much though.  I wrote a bit more of my English speech then wrote a letter to David.   Then I tried to go to sleep because I was unusually tired (I did all this in the car).  And when we got home I had a 2 hour sleep.  So by the time I woke up I didn't have much time to do all the homework I wanted to get done before we went to Mass at Ridgehaven.  I didn't do any when we got home either because I watched "Hey, Hey, It's Saturday." Unreal show!!

26th April 1985 (Friday)

Today's the kind of day which seemed to drag on forever because so many different things happened.

Karina wasn't at school today because she had a Geography excursion.  That means half of the grade 12s weren't there.  Plus, the zone football trials were held at our school so we had teachers missing and lessons watching football etc.  So today was pretty jumbled.  Anyway I got half of my English speech for Monday written.  I saw the Guidance Officer today about Ancient History but he hasn't seen my teacher yet so I'll have to see him again on Monday.

After lunch we had double English but our teacher was away so we had a study first then we watched football.  I couldn't pick out any exceptionally good looking guys.  When I was waiting at the bus turn-around after school I was standing next to a footballers' bus.  I wish I was pretty because they were calling out to all the pretty girls and I just stood there looking ugly.  And I got myself all depressed, and wouldn't talk to Joanne on the bus.  But then I complained to her about me being so ugly & such a dag.  And she was really terrific.  She really made me feel better.  Mainly because we were mucking around.  We have a lot of fun when we muck around, but that's not very often anymore because of Kate (yes, you detect a sign of resentment).

Anyway, to make my good mood even better, I found another letter for me when I got home.  But, surprise, surprise, it wasn't from Ann or Yoko or Paul O'Leary or even Eric, but Paul Street!!  I was quite surprised because I didn't even write to him first.  A guy actually wrote to me without me writing first!!!  I was stunned.  But it wasn't a very exciting letter.  Although he did have one point of interest, David Parker.  In my letter to Eric I told him to say a special hi to David etc.  Paul read Eric's letter and told me David said to say hi to me and he'll write to me IF (of course) I write first.  And you can be sure I will!!  In Eric's letter I also told him to tell Paul I was first for the deb.  But in Paul's letter he said he already knew.  Don't know how.  But that's something I can ask when I write back.

Deb practice was great tonight.  It's really fun.  I love it!!

I paid my deposit for the ski trip today.  I'm going to the Snowies with the school in August!!! It should be fantastic!

25th April 1985 (Thursday)

This morning, I, amazingly, did some homework.  I did some Maths.  But I didn't do anything else until Mrs Willett picked us up at 12:30 for musical practice (by the way, today is ANZAC Day, so there's no school).  Practice went until 5:00 from 1:00.  Marcus (Geoff's friend) also went in with us.  The practice was really fun.  I thought I was only in two scenes but I discovered I'm in four.  And I sing two songs.  Not solos, of course, only in the chorus.  Anyway, by the time we got home at 5:30 I didn't feel like doing anything, so I didn't.  Mum brought us home.

24th April 1985 (Wednesday)

Today was very busy.  First of all we had sport.  I didn't take my racquet so I was going to do some Maths.  But instead I wrote a letter to Eric from Karina (she dictated).  I told her to put stuff in about David Parker.

After that we had a committee meeting.  We just wrote down ideas for the newspaper.  It should be good if we do it right.

Then I had musical practice after school.  Not many people turned up which was maddening because we go on stage in four weeks!!  And it's not very far advanced.

Then the good news for the day.  When I got home I found a letter from Eric.  This is totally amazing because he posted mine at noon yesterday and he would have got mine yesterday after he sent his.  We even wrote them on the same day.  And we wrote a letter to him today.  That's three co-incidences.

This morning Karina & I had to put up the flag at assembly because we had an army captain coming to talk to us about ANZAC Day tomorrow.  And because we were the closest people around we were the ones who got sucked in.  Total embarrassment!!

Tonight I started sewing my jamies.  I almost finished the top & it's very late & I'm very tired.  So, goodnight.

23rd April 1985 (Tuesday)

Today was very uninteresting.  Mum saw the Guidance Officer today.  And I got out of one lesson of Accounting to go down.  I still don't know it I can drop Ancient History or not.  He has to talk to my teacher to see if I'm likely to fail or pass.  I hope I'll probably fail because then I can drop it.  I really hate Ancient History so much.  It's all above my level of comprehension.

I had musical practice today.  My part is not as easy as I thought.  It's pretty difficult being a cool, sophisticated, criminal.

We had our first communications committee meeting with the teacher today.   He suggested putting out a real newspaper.  Not like the previous ones which were just photocopied foolscap sheets about grade 12s mainly.  This year we're going to set it out like a real newspaper and have articles about all grades so it involves everyone.  We're even getting the the local newspaper to print it.

Other than this, nothing happened today.

22nd April 1985 (Monday)

Life's a drag!  Nothing's going well at the moment.  I find when no body pays any attention to me I try to attract it to myself.  I get into crazy moods and laugh a lot and do crazy & stupid things.  I appear to be happy but it's only a front.  I feel dumb because I act stupid.  I know how I act is wrong and so does everyone else.  I'm not saying I act silly like the tough, rough girls and I don't attract the attention of everyone around me.  Only maybe my friends.  But I feel so bad because I know I'm deceiving myself.  I act happy when I know damn well I'm miserable.  It's guys who get me down.  Nick, David, Bevan and Mathew and all those guys used to talk to us a lot, but now we may as well be 'incredible, invisible women'.

We were supposed to have musical practice today but Mr Woodworth was away.

Mum went to see our Guidance Officer today to see about me dropping Ancient History.  But he wasn't there so she'll have to see him tomorrow.

I got to school very early today.  Mum went to Brisbane & dropped me off on the way.  I wanted to go to the library to work on my term paper.  I went to the library but I didn't work on my term paper.

21 April 1985 (Sunday)

Nothing exciting happened today.  I didn't go anywhere, do anything etc.  Danny came out this morning.  Our neighbour came up with her very recent future daughter-in-law to give us flowers for having the men here.  Last night after the wedding their son told them he's getting married, in America! That was big excitement for everyone.

I still didn't do any homework.  I'll write a letter to Eric and go to bed.
