My Birthday Present

Monday, August 23rd 2010

Dear Diary,
My name is Damian Dulce. Today is my Birthday, you are my present. I am eleven years old. I have messy brown hair and wear glasses. My favorite color is brown. I also like green and lots of other colors.

Dear Diary,
Sixth grade started today. I don't have any friends. Mom and Dad were gone all last night, they aren't home yet.

Dear Diary,
They keep picking on me. They steal my glasses and call me the four-eyed shrimp. Mom and Dad keep leaving me at home alone.

Dear Diary,
I have a pain in my chest. It feels like no one listens. It hurts.

Dear Diary,
I got an A on the math test today. I was happy until they ripped it up. I don't like those kids.

Dear Diary,
School starts tomorrow. I don't want to go. I don't want to stay at home either. I want to leave. I feel alone.

Dear Diary,
I have to stay at home and hand out candy. Mom and Dad went to a party. It feels like they are never home. I feel like I live in this house by myself.

Today is Thanksgiving. I don't feel thankful for anything. They are gone again. It's been a few days.

Dear Diary,
Merry Christmas. Mom and Dad are home today. It's been a lot of fun. I miss them. I hope they don't leave again soon. I think we're poor. My only present was a fancy pen. Maybe it's called a quill? I don't know. It doesn't have a feather but I dip it in ink. I'm using it right now!

Dear Diary,
They left. I used too much ink last time.

Friday-Saturday, December 31st-January 1st 2010-11
Dear Diary,
Happy New Year. It's a new year now. Does that mean things will change? Mom and Dad are asleep early, it's starting to bug me.

Dear Diary,
I'm sorry I haven't written to you in so long. I've been reading a lot, I have escaped. My parents appear once every two or three days. Over summer I liked going to the park nearby and reading under the trees. After spring time the kids stopped picking on me. It's like they got bored. Now no one knows I even exist. Not even my parents. Middle School starts tomorrow, I have no idea why it's starting in the middle of the week. It's farther away so I get to take the bus. I think I want to walk instead. It's not like anyone will notice. I didn't get a present yet.

Dear Diary,
It turns out they forgot my Birthday. They gave me a wallet with twenty dollars inside. I'm not telling you where I'm hiding it in case someone steals this. I don't want to buy anything, books are free at the library. So I'll save up. So now I have twenty dollars. I like my Middle School. First Period is Reading and grammar skills, Second period is writing. It's the same teacher though. Third Period is P.E. and fourth Period is Math. Fifth Period is science, and Sixth period is History.
