Dear Diary, Last year I wrote my secret entry about Paul on
Valentine’s Day. Do you remember? I sent him a Valentine
And I was so desperate to see if he sent me one. I had to open’
Valentines from everyone in the class until I found his. Do
you remember what it said? It said, “Be my Valentine.” I
was so happy. I could hardly sleep that night.
This year I will of course be sending Paul a Valentine. Even
though I don’t feel quite the same about him. I’m not sure
why, but I know one reason is that is looks away a lot when
I look at him. I think he might think I’m staring at him.
Anyway, I decided to do something else this year. I read
about the idea in one of my mother’s magazines. It was in
an article called BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND. There was
a long list of things you could do to be nice to yourself.
Some were stuff like skip the laundry this week , buy
yourself a new nightgown and get a new hairstyle. Some of \
the list sounded stupid. Anyway it was for women, not
girls. But the one thing I liked was Send a Valentine to
Yourself. So I’m doing that this year. I have almost
finished it. I made it out of construction paper and lace
and it is very beautiful. And you know what I’m saying?
“I love you very much and I’ll never forget you!” I am very
excited. I’m even going to glue little candy hearts on it.
Don’t tell anyone. They would think I was silly. Remember,
it’s a secret.
