Diana's Diary

My thoughts, travels and adventures.

Christmas Eve

My Christmas present from Auntie arrived yesterday-- some photos from home, cards from Auntie, Miguel, and Kitta, and best and scariest of all, a promise. Auntie says she and Miguel had a long talk, and if I can get accepted into veterinary school, they'll find a way to send the money to help me pay for it!

At first I was so happy I wanted to run all over the farm screaming, but now I'm just scared. Scared I won't get in, scared I'm not smart enough, scared that even if they let me in, I'll do badly and they'll make me leave. I've been lazy with my algebra because it's so hard, but I'm going to try again. I can't let Auntie down.

And now Lee is here, telling me to hurry up. We're supposed to go sing Christmas songs for people. I never did this back home, but it seems to be a popular thing here. It ought to be a good time-- it's a cold, clear evening with a moon rising and just enough snow on the ground to make the fields look like the white sands back home. It's magical.

The only thing that would've made it perfect would've been if I had heard from Robert.

Gotta go sing "Joy to the World" now.

I've been avidly reading since finding your blog a few weeks ago. Please please tell me your going to write more. I need to know what happens next with the telephone company, with vet school, with Robert, with Lee, with Will.
I enjoyed the adventures so much, thanks for sharing them.

Thanks for stopping by, Alix! A lot of things have been happening, but my stupid author has been too busy writing other things to help me put my diary on the computer.

If you haven't read them yet, the short stories are here, linked on the right. Don't believe everything she writes about my years with Will and Auntie, though. My author exaggerates a lot. In fact, if you see her, would you tell her to stop? The truth is weird enough. She doesn't need to keep adding stuff to make it more "interesting."

Never mind. I think I know where she is. I'll go tell her myself. Stupid author!

Hello Diana, Please forgive me for being so bold, but I am doing a bit of blog surf to invite people to sign up for my giveaway. There are no gimmicks. This is just my way of celebrating two years of blogging. On January 4th I am giving away a free caricature drawn by me. I'd be honored if you came by and signed up for a chance to win.

So this is after Bella Diana? At first I thought it might be set before.

@Alice: I should remove this from the top page, since I'm no longer updating. This is actually the very last post in this blog. You need to start with the First Diary, December: http://dianadiario.blogspot.com/2006/02/december.html

THIS is how it ends? Does she get away with murder? Does she marry the wrong guy? Does she get her math together? Does her investment in the telephone company pay off? Does she stay? So many unanswered questions.

This is why I no longer post a serial I haven't finished. I know how this one ends, but I lost interest in telling the story. Pathetic, isn't it?
