I didn't go to school. I feel okay except I have to keep on spitting.

I still didn't go to school. Oh man, do I miss Chevy!

I went to school for the first time in a long time. I had a ball. Chevy is still super cute.

I hate exams!
I hate studying!
I just adore Chevy's eyelashes!
Laurie said she is proud of me cause I lost so much weight. She's proud? I'm bursting with it. When I'm slim, I just know Chevy will like me.
