1967 Ė Wednesday
Today is Washington's
birthday and I've been home all day. As for doing anything special,
the only thing I've done is take a walk down to the beach. Things are
really grim in Coronado on a vacation. There's not a thing to
A long time ago I said Bill
was the only friend I didn't like. Now he's the only friend I do like.
Out of all my friends, he's the only one that's halfway normal. I didn't like him at first
because he acted like such a phony but after I got to know him I've found
he's really sincere.
When I talk with Pat I have
to be very careful. He has a big inferiority complex so he's always
trying to build himself up by correcting other people. Kirk is just the opposite. He

Although Bill and I don't

February 26, 1967 - Sunday
Something's been going on
between mother and father for the past few weeks but today is the first time
I've noticed anything. I got suspicious this morning when mother said
she was planning a trip back East to visit grandmother. This didn't
impress me much until tonight I heard them talking in the kitchen. I
didn't understand what they were saying but they seemed to be just getting
over a argument. Both of them are always drinking and screaming at each
other and fights happen almost daily. Just a little while ago mother
came in and dramatically said everything was all right and the worst was
over. I didn't have the faintest idea of what she
was talking about. I may never find out what was going on.
I've noticed that for the
past few months my feelings on Sunday nights have changed a great deal.
It used to be that every time Sunday night came around I would go into a real
depression. This is actually normal for most people because nobody
likes the prospect of a whole work week ahead of them.. The police say that more
suicides are committed on Sunday night than any other night of the week.
Anyway, now when Sunday comes
around it doesn't make a bit of difference to me. I'm almost happy that the
weekend is over.
