[Welcome to guest blogger Rachel!
Go and have a look at her lovely new blog. It even involves diaries so it’s a YES from me! (Soz, I’ve been watching too much X Factor recently.)
Feeling inspired by Rachel braving the cringe? Fancy sharing bits of a teenage diary that you’ve got squirrelled away? You can get in touch via the ‘Share your own diary‘ page.
Hi, I’m Rachel from Discovering Me. I’ve gone through various phases of keeping a diary since I was a child. In 1991, when I was sweet sixteen, I wrote in my diary almost every day charting all the boys I fancied, school sagas and general mundane life. I came across Tess’s website when I was looking for inspiration on starting my own blog. I thought blogging her old diary entries was a great idea, they reminded me of my own and I thought it would be a good way of getting me warmed up for blogging! So thanks for having me! CRINGE!
Sunday 3rd March
Went for a walk this pm, saw Pete snogging with his new girlfriend on the beach huh! Nice tea. Took Claire to evening service which wasn’t bad at all. Guess what Simon from St Davids asked me out!
Monday 4th March
I don’t know what to do I’ve been thinking about it all day I was going to write to him but I don’t know his surname. Went round to Rachel’s but no one was in. What am I to do? I don’t know why he asked me wished he hadn’t, it wasn’t very romantic.
Tuesday 5th March
Parents evening today. Went well except I forgot to tell M&D I’d got a test in Science tomorrow so Dad was a bit off but he’s recovered now. BT was really nice about me so glad. NJ was yuk CH was nice & DAE said it was pleasure to have me. Thank you God.

We went to Chester today, awesome! I picked a bargain pair of pumps for 99p from DP’s(Dorothy Perkins) I’d fancied a pair like that for ages. I also bought a pencil case and we went in a cafe for lunch, v.nice.

Comic relief red nose day, wear what you like. Nothing much happened at school. Geography was embarrassing got a question wrong and went bright red.
Watched comic relief until 11.30 it was good. STONK!
Sunday 17th March
Went out on my bike this afternoon. Saw Simon at church he gave me a letter, he was very sweet about it all. We had to leave early so I didn’t get much chance to speak to him. Then 9.30 he rang me! Anyway I’ve written to him again just to make sure he knows I’m only interested in being just friends for know. Hope he’s ok.
Monday 18th March
Another boring day in school at least DA wasn’t there so had a free lesson. Meant to be studying tonight but somehow I didn’t.

Everyone at school thinks I fancy Matthew huh! BT wasn’t there today, so there. At the moment I feel a bit fed up, I’m only sort of looking forward to hols cos I’ve got loads of art work to do.
Wednesday 20th March
Got a lovely letter of Simon, he says that from first time he saw me he was stunned!! Stunned at my ugliness!! Only joking. He should have got my letter today hopefully.
Watched a film until late tonight.
Thursday 21st March
We had cross country today, loads didn’t do it, 40! And out of those that did, most of them walked it. So we got a lecture after about what a flop it was with so many bunking and nobody really trying! I enjoyed it sort of, it was a laugh.
Friday 22nd March
Got another letter of Simon, he says he understands and was quite chatty. I’m beginning to like him more now, he’s very sweet.
Well schools finished but I’ve got loads to do unfortunately. We did hockey in PE today. Isn’t life exciting! (sarky)
