So, someone the other day asked me why I always put “help me” at the end of each entry. The short answer is: I don’t know, I just do. It’s something I do in my personal diary that signals the end of the entry. Like a closing of a letter, I guess, except signing my name is corny because this is NOT a letter to people and then which name would I use, anyway?
Help Me is also, or at least, was at one point, an acronym. Heck if I can remember what it stands for now though. I’ll have to dig through my journals. I did so for a bit last night and said, “wow.” at the exact wrong time. People thought I was picking on Latasha. Erm, no, I was saying “wow” and shaking my head because the first entry in which I closed with “help Me” talks about how I hate my breasts and am going to get them chopped off at 18. Anyway, I’ll see if I can dig up the acronym for kicks and giggles.
In the meantime, know that this has been a 10 year tradition. If the computer journal is the only journal I was using at that time, this July 30th/31st will be EXACTLY 10 years. Heh. Kind of ironic when you think of what ELSE July 31s means to me.
