Dear Diary 1994: He loves me, he loves me not. I love him, I love him not.

A series of diary entries from last week and this coming week, 1994.  You’re welcome.

Nov. 14, 1994: NATHAN KINDA LIKES ME!  Amanda is going to take me skating on Friday.  Nathan’s going, too.  He said that he will couple-skate with Amanda first, then Kristin, then me.  Should I say yes?  Maybe - Maybe not.  See ya!

Nov. 17, 1994: Nathan doesn’t like me.  I don’t like him much either.  He’s only couple-skating with Mandy.  He doesn’t like Kristin much anymore either.  I’m starting to get a crush on Jason.  He was a new boy last year.  He’s really funny and sorta cute.  He’s number 6 on my Top 5 List of Guys.  Got to go!  See ya!

Nov. 18, 1994: I changed by mind about not liking Nate.  I LOVE him.  Tonight he asked Amanda to couple-skate and she said “no” because she can’t skate good.  Then he asked me and I said “yes.”  So we did.  Half-way through the couple-skate Nathan said “God, how many times do we have to go around this thing?”  One of my friends was skating around the middle of the rink clapping at Nate and I when we went by.  When Mandy and I left she said, “Bye, Nathan.  I love you” and Nathan said, “Bye, Mandy.  I love you, too.”  When we were at the rink I wanted to tell Nathan I loved him.  I just couldn’t, though.  So I said, “Nathan, I really really like…” I was so embarrassed I skated away before I could say “you.”  I told Amanda that I was never going to wash the hand Nathan was holding to skate.  Amanda told him and he made a weird face.  I said I was sorry and he said, “That’s okay, I like when people talk about me like that.  It makes me feel good.”  I LOVE NATHAN!

Nov.  26, 1994: Amanda called me today.  Yes, she couple-skated with Nate last night, but I don’t care.  There is an all-day skate on Monday.  Nate told Mandy to bring me.  That made my day.  If I forgot to mention, he KINDA likes me again.  Just KINDA.  Oh, at our pizza party on Friday at school, Jason didn’t want his soda.  He asked who wanted it.  He gave it to me!  How romantic!  (Not?)

Nov. 28, 1994: Nate doesn’t just KINDA like me.  He loves me.  Today he dumped Amanda for me.  Then he started to like her again.  So now he’s two-timing us.  This may sound pretty strange, but we don’t care just as long as he still likes us.  Nate and I have this thing that every time we see each other we say, “Hey Baby.”  Mandy dared me to mouth “I love you” to Nate.  He said something like, “Don’t be embarrassed, I love you, too.”  I was so grateful.  He says he likes Amanda better, but I don’t care.  Just as long as he likes me.  I MISS NATE SO MUCH!  We’ve only been apart about seven hours.
