That girl has guts! – 7th & 8th October 1999

Thursday 7th I only had one lesson today because our Geography teacher wasn’t in so I stayed in the common room all day. Aled did too but he was totally absorbed in his ‘Bravo Two Zero’ book so he didn’t speak as much as usual. He decided that I was going to his sleepover even though I said I didn’t know if I could and Oscar backed him up. If Lizzie goes, I probably will too.

I saw Trotter quite a bit today. He had a lesson 2nd period but they were practicing acting something out so they came up to the top floor of the college where there’s more space. We kept making eye contact with each other. Later on he was on a free period and so was I so I went and sat in the pool room where he was. It seemed to be pretty much common knowledge that I fancy him and Safiyah L told me that he’s ‘hard to get’. She used to fancy him, you see, but didn’t get anywhere with him.

I didn’t see much of Jake today but I found out from the General Studies lists that his full name is Jake Matthew Kenneth Taylor and his birthday is 3rd October 1981. That means he must be 18 now.

While I was sat in the common room, apparently this lad called Ali Kershaw was looking for me. I went back upstairs and Aled and Zoe said he’d come in and asked if anyone had seen me. None of them thought to ask why though. I really want to know what he wanted. He’s mates with Jake (we think) so Zoe reckons he was going to say something about Jake. She then declared that she fancied Jake and if I did anything with him she’d never speak to me. She’s already got a boyfriend. Selfish or what?!


Friday 8th Lizzie and Zoe are beginning to annoy me. Lizzie keeps flirting with anyone and everyone, even in front of Oscar. It’s the flirting with Aled that was annoying me the most. That means I must like him because I wouldn’t have cared otherwise. She’s making such a big deal about Brett and all. Nobody really cares much but she’s telling more and more people so it’s bound to get back to Oscar sooner or later.

She’s not annoyed me as much as Zoe though. I tell you, that girl has guts! She went up to Jake this morning, asked him if he liked her, told him she liked him and then told everyone she’d done it. This is all so that nobody else’ll get in there because, now loads of people know she fancies him, it’ll make anyone else who tries to get in there look like they’re being snidey to her. People’ll then stick up for her therefore giving whoever else is after Jake a hard time.

She knows exactly what she’s doing and she’s done it before. Even if she just likes a lad a bit and then finds out someone else likes him, she’ll do anything she can to stop them getting him. She’s split up with Jav too so she’s been whinging about him all day.

Because Lizzie and Aled seem to be getting on pretty well at the moment, I brought up the subject of who people fancy on the walk home. I was questioning Julian on who he likes but he wouldn’t tell me. We then split up and I walked on the pavement and they walked on the field. I think they’d been discussing who they liked because when they re-joined me on the path, I continued questioning Julian and Aled said he knew who it was.

Then Julian said he knew who Aled liked. They wouldn’t tell me who so I started guessing. This is how I brought Lizzie into it. Aled said she was a good mate but he didn’t like her in that way. So, he says he doesn’t fancy her. Julian said she’s not who Aled fancies so when I asked Julian who it was, he said, “If Aled wants to tell you, it’s up to him.” Aled went quiet. I may continue questioning next week. [I hoped it was me, didn’t i?]


[There’ll be a slight change for my next few posts. I had MAJOR GOSSIP and my very brave gossipee, Cat, has agreed to share her parallel diary entries. And they are excellent.]
