Rediscovering my twenty year younger heart again has been slightly embarrassing yet fulfilling at the same time. Who knew I was such a talkative little tyke.
And my, was my heart filled with such love. I wrote down everything and everyone I cared about to ensure I would never forget.
I’m not editing any of the contents or reading the entires beforehand. That way we can share in the wonder together.
Here is May 1997 III.

Love Shannon May 23, 1997 I Love You May 23, 1997 On May 21, 1997 I told Alissa that I put I Love Neil. she was being a berat. But we are Best friends now. May 25, 1997 I <3 u Love Shannon May 26, 1997 you are fun!
Has anyone else caught my consistent capitalization of Best? I actually think it’s pretty hilarious. My younger self put a high emphasis on the word. It must’ve had some type of superiority before the word friend.
I also assume I tattled on myself to Alissa about my crush and she teased me. Luckily, I have no recollection of this spat between my former Best friend and happy to report, it did not stop me from crushing on Neil.
It’s also safe to say I was trying to write brat, but also highly probable I was trying to write it the way I was saying it, i.e. beeeeeerat!
My how time flies. Do you remember your first scuff with a friend? What was it over and where did it happen? Let me know in the comment section!
