I decided to pull out my old diaries. December 31, 1986 (Wednesday, 10:43 P.M.) I'm in a GREAT mood right now. I'm babysitting. Reid and Diana are asleep.
Well pretty soon it'll be a new day, a new month, a new year!! That's a big change. And that's what I want to do; change. I want to be more daring and my year's resolution is not to get depressed. I started off the year wrong last year and it never got any better. Sure I had a few really good days, but 1987 is going to be packed filled with days like that or better. It's 1987 in New York!! We've got another hour left.
I'm filled with anticipation. So much happens in a year. I wonder what's in store for me in 87.
I've lost two pounds and I'm going to lose a lot more. My hair has really grown and I styled it different tonight and I really like it. It's going to get better yet! DEFINITELY. Another resolution is to look my best throughout this new year.
Things are looking up. It's a chance to start over and that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm going to try my best at EVERYTHING I do. Most of all I'm going to be me. I'm going to stop wishing I was someone else because I like me and I realize I'm special. (That sounds really hilarious, doesn't it)
If you can't like yourself no one else can, and if I believe in myself maybe others will too. Well I don't have much more to say in 86 so I'll leave you till 87.
P.S. Only 40 minutes till the best year in my life so far!!

I'm in a GREAT mood right now. I'm babysitting. Reid and Diana are asleep.
While I can't help but giggle at my fifteen-year-old self, I found out that Reid was in a serious accident a week ago. He is currently in a coma in Taiwan. My thoughts are with him and his family.
