I’m just gonna have to try to get him to like me – 25th February 1998

Wednesday 25th Bloody Barnsley! That’s it – 3-2 to bloody Barnsley! Man Utd are well out of the FA bleeding Cup. That was so close. 2-0 at half time then Cole scored and Sheringham scored in the second half and unfortunately so did a Barnsley twat player. I s’pose at least it wasn’t completely humiliating, like 3-0. What am I saying? We lost to Barnsley, what’s more humiliating than that?! Okay, maybe losing to Man City or someone but Barnsley are usually shite. Forget it, Tess, it’s done with now, it’s not your fault that the linesmen were zombies and can’t see an offside. It’s done with now and there’s nowt I can do about it. Hayley’s not gone off Ferny yet either. She’s going to say that she’ll go out with him once she gets to know him better so that’ll probably keep him interested in her.

Tuesday 17thWe got put into different groups again. I got put in the better group to go down the big slope with some instructor called Sonia who had a go at you if you fell over. In my good group there was me, Rachael, Georgia, Josie Nichol, Jim Brackenhurst, Graham Baxter, little 5 yr old Jack L (Mrs L’s son) and Miss P. After lunch we went all the way down the mountain. It was quite steep and some parts were quite scary. We also did the slalom and jumps and stuff. It was good at lunch. The kitchen staff had made packed lunches which we ate in the café at the top of the mountain. We had from 12:00 noon ‘til 1:30pm and we all had a snowball fight coz it was the one snowy day we’d had. I ended up rolling down a hill with Jez which I can’t say I minded really! I still like Jez and Ferny but Ralph, Freddie and Graham are being…

Maybe I’m A Selfish Bitch, But My Mom Still Loves Me

I wanted to share a story about something that happened in my family back in 2011. This is story about a time when I felt like I wasn’t considered enough but I should be. This was written as a stream of consciousness. So I hope it makes sense.? In December 2011 a bunch of my family got together at my grandparents’ house for Xmas. This is my mom’s side of the family. At the time I was one semester away from graduating college with my BA. Something that no one else in my family has ever done. I worked hard, albeit not as hard as I could have because I was actually on my 5th year instead of 4th, but I still felt like I was about to accomplish something that was actually worthy of praise for once.? Meanwhile, my 18 year old cousin had a (surprise) baby in October. This would be the first time my mom would be meeting this baby, as well as the first time for some…
