June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

Almost There (Fiction)

Diary of a High School Senior

Dear Diary,

I can’t believe it’s almost here. I am less than four months away from my high school graduation. I am so excited! I can’t wait for June to come so that I can be an official high school graduate.

My family is beginning to get excited especially Mommy although she’s trying hard not to let it show. She told me that she was very rebellious when she was my age and in spite of her mother’s warnings she was determined have fun and do whatever she wanted to do. She was only sixteen years old when she had me and she dropped out of high school. I think she’s a little bit afraid that I’ll follow in her footsteps especially since her mother had her when she was in high school also.

I’m determined that I’m going to break the cycle though. I see how hard Mommy has worked over the years to provide for me and make a better life for the two of us. She really has changed from the stubborn teenager she told me about. I’m not going to let her down.

I’ll admit there were times when I gave her a hard time, got into trouble with my teachers, and didn’t get the kind of grades I know I was capable of but thankfully I came to my senses before it was too late for me, I only get in trouble once in a while now, lol. I’m so grateful to have people in my life who believe in me. One of those is my Accounts teacher. She always motivates me to do my very best. In fact she was on my case so much that I tried harder just so I could get her off my back. She really cares about her students and not only about our grades in her class but in the other subject areas as well. I didn’t really like Accounting in the beginning but now I’m thinking about becoming an Accountant. I haven’t decided yet but we’ll see.

I know I haven’t graduated yet but I’m so proud of myself. Not bad for a girl who people said was going to be “just like her ma and grandma.” I’m going to make it diary! I’m not just going to finish high school but I’m going to college also. In less than four months my first goal will be accomplished. I can’t wait!

A soon to be high school graduate
