Dear Diary,

Jean & me went to the show. Saw Joan of Ark it was pretty good. Gosh Diary, it doesn’t seem possible that in 2 weeks I’m graduating & moving. I feel kindda empty inside.

We had joint homeroom today & we got our A9 pins. We had co-ed dancing today in the Cafe. I found what Nefarious & Myopsis mean. Arthur Hernandez invited us girls to his party Friday. I have a chance to baby-sit with Ilene or go to the Little Theater. Packed some things.

Thursday Teus, January 9                      Weather marked as half Clear, half Cloudy

Dear Diary,

Ate dinner over Jean’s & then watched Uncle Milty [sic] except Ken Murry [sic] took his place. Found out that Robert loves / or likes me very much me and the only reason he doesn’t do anything is he — cause I’m moving in two weeks & it would be useless to start anything.
