Welcome to the Protoblog

I haven't scanned anything in a while.

Here's the first page out of a journal I kept in 6th grade. The journal was actually a class assignment we did for credit.

If I remember correctly, you had to keep up with it on a daily basis, filling up at least a half page per day.

You can see I got a "1" on the first page, which I think was not a good thing -- probably due to my not fulfilling the half page requirement.

I'll be posting more pages from this journal -- it's clear to me that I did not enjoy recording my thoughts then as much as I do now, though I did find some inventive ways of stretching my very small journal entries.

Please scan a pcture of the page where you have a doodle of Ms. Hathway being pelted by a volley of spit wads.

dr z, it's like you're in my 6th grade head!

There are doodles in this journal, so stay tuned.

OMFG- This is priceless, and opens my mind up to a whole new world of blog topics. I will be sure to one day acquire from my mother the essay I wrote in fourth grade about "The Three Things I Hate," in which I listed goats, boys and when my brother embarrassingly rolled his hotwheels into the mall fountain where my mother worked. I brilliantly segued from the paragraph about goats to boys by saying some boys are goats, and listed my teacher in the list of the boys I hated. I got an A on the darn thing. (And, I no longer hate boys.) I look forward to your 6th grade doodles, oh the foreshadowing.

Am I the only one who finds it disturbing that you have your grade 6 journals still? You must have endless storage space somewhere.

I am still marveling over the fact that when Splotchy was in the 6th grade, I was out of college for 3 years.

Like Fran, I'm a little wigged that in 1982, Splotchy was in 6th grade, and I was a junior in high school.

It could've been a May-December romance!
