In this installment, we see pre-teen Hermia out of her innocent depths after starting secondary school. She also might be psychotically obsessed with David…again…
I can’t remember the last time I wrote. I guess I’ve been busy with school. I’m really enjoying it. My favourite subjects so far are History with Ms Collis, Maths with Mrs King and Home Ec with Mrs Leahy. Here are the girls the girls I’ve made friends with: Annie, Helen, Laura, Lisa, Melanie and Alison. I hate Carol (who went to my primary school) cos she’s taking Annie away from me. She’s also taking Helen, but I don’t care about her because she’s a bitch. There’s this girl called Barbara who is disgusting. She asked me if I’d ever seen a guy’s “dick”, so I said yeah and she asked were and I said on TV and Helen and Carol started laughing. But I know Carol is a Frigite* so I don’t know why she was laughing. So then Barbara asks if I’m a Frigite and I say no and she asks how many guys I’ve met* and I said about 15 or 16. And Helen and Carol start laughing again and Helen says “I kiss more boys than that in a DAY”. Barbara said, “shut up at least she’s honest”. I haven’t kissed any boys before but I didn’t want to say because they already make fun of me for not knowing about that stuff and they’d never stop if they thought I was a Frigite.
I better go,
I love David with a passion.
I tried to like Simon, but I couldn’t stop like David. I wasn’t getting a response or vibe from David so I tried to stop, but I love him so badly. I couldn’t stand not liking him and I realised how much I loved him. I want to tell him. You’ve no idea how much I want to tell him. I love him more than I’ve ever loved anyone, even Tom from when I was 10. I just wish with all my heart that he’d love me even half as much as I heart him. But there’s one thing standing in the way…
Me and Penny think they’ve started dating.
But I’m not sure yet.
Oh I have to go now,
Frigite=Dublin slang in the late nineties for a girl who was ‘frigid’, ie: hadn’t kissed a guy
Met=Dublin slang meaning ‘kissed’
