    Dear Diary!!! November 3, 2006 He was my brother’s best friend—that meant that he was supposed to be off limits, but one look at him and my heart went from 70 to a thousand beats per minute.  I decided to throw myself at him the way I imagined Madonna would have in her glory days.  This one time I spent hours in a store before buying him the most amazing gift, but I played it cool—“oh it’s nothing” I said.  “Just picked it up while I was shopping.”  I never acted too girly; I wanted him to think I was cool and beautiful. November 16, 2006 I finally got his attention!!  He thinks of me as a person, not just his friend’s sister!!  About time, geez!  I have been hanging around him the way a picture hangs on a wall—just look at me it screams!  Finally, he looked! January 25, 2007 It’s been 2 months and we are officially together.  You should see the way that the girls at school stare!  Oh they want to be me.  As I look around I see them; lionesses sizing me up.  Seriously, their stares are so animalistic.  I’m expecting them to ambush, assault and annihilate me at any minute.  I sometimes think I hear them roar at me; it’s sort of unsettling. February 17, 2007 Last night in my dream his shoes were chasing me.  They screamed at me to slow down, but I kept running.  I don’t know what would have happened if the shoes caught up to me, but I was sure it would be bad.  Maybe I was truly scared that the shoes would tell me that they were leaving me.  As I woke up, I realized that it was over; the dream and the relationship. February 23, 2007 “It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”...who said that anyway?  Some old guy?  What an idiot.  What does he know?  Brett was my first love.  He looked like Zac Effron and loved to listen to Akon.  We were made for each other.  People called us Romeo & Juliet.  I would have jumped off a bridge if he asked me to.  The problem was is that he didn’t ask me to, he didn’t ask me to do anything except to go away--the one thing I couldn’t do—leave.
