The first couple of years, I was still too young to write anything comprehensible, so I'd tell my mom what to write, and then I might draw a picture to make it pretty.
Then I started to write my own entries, and my spelling and handwriting was horrible. Here is an example of just one said entry:
"on the fourth of July I bot my bike. I wanted a bike so much that wenever mom or dad wood by sumthing that kost as much as a bike I olways say I cude hade goten a bike for that much money. it is my favorit bike that Iv had. it is a boys bike that is red. I got a boys bike be cus all the Girl biks were pink or purple yuk!"
This example also perfectly exemplifies my tomboy stage that dominated a good three or four years of my life. But I was right, those pink and purple bikes were ugly.
Not only did my handwriting, spelling, and writing abilities improve over the years, my artwork did too.
|Hey, that's pretty good for a six-year-old.|
|Everything's cuter with eyes right?|
Switching subjects again. This week I filled up my 30G iPod. Yeah, I'm cool and musical like that. In other words my iPod had around four thousand songs on it, but I only know about 25% of them. Probably less. I don't download my music illegally, but I don't exactly pay for it either. I get all my albums from the library and rip them on my itunes. That means I only know about three of the 10 songs on an album. But I still think I'm cool.
