So I brought out the oldest journal of mine I could find the other night, to find some material for a post. I was inspired by Girl’s Gone Child and her posts on Instagram of her journals when she was in high school. They are hilarious, please check them out.

Anyway, what I found was amazing and unexpected.

I had just had a conversation with Anthony the other day about how I wrote a song when I was little (he’s a composer, so I was trying to relate). It was in my I Want to Be Jewel phase, and I had guitar chords to go along with it and everything. It was about resisting the temptation of drugs. Anyway.

I opened this journal and laughed at some funny lines (“Writing is so much easier than typing. I’ve been doing my e-mail a lot”) but then came across maybe the best thing in the entire world. Another song that I wrote.  I can’t even… just read.

I naturally texted Anthony that picture immediately.

I seriously can remember the tune of this song like it was in the top 40 in 2001. I wish I could sing it to you guys. But you’ll just have to use your imagination.

Look out for more journal posts from Young Stephanie. She had a lot of things to say.

    Oh my goodness, I love this. I definitely had an I Want to Be Jewel phase, and I remember songs I wrote, but I don’t think they could be nearly as exquisite as this masterpiece! haha, love it. :)

    Hahaha Krissy I’m glad I’m not the only one!! Alexa, there will definitely be more to come. There is so much in just that one journal and I have one per year of high school. It’s going to give me endless material.
