From the Diary of Amanda Campbell

May 21st 2008

Dear Diary,

I don't know what to do right now. My grades are dropping, Kyle Harris dumped me and my aunt was diagnosed with cancer just a few days ago. I want to just concentrate on school again, but so far it's not really working out. I can't think.

I feel like I'm being followed. Every day, as I walk home from school, I just get this sense, like I'm going to die. Maybe it's just me, or maybe I'm losing a grasp on my mind. I'm afraid to ask mom. What if she yells at me? I don't want to pull mom into this. This situation is for me to deal with myself.

I bumped into Kyle Harris yesterday at lunch, literally, and knocked over his lunch bag. He yelled at me, and I got in trouble. I think he was acting out of peer pressure.

My mind is skipping around. I think I'll go the park and call it a day. Thanks for listening.
