I only realised this morning that I have a document of my entire teenage life.
From May 1998 up until September 2005 I kept a fairly constent diary. It starts of as pretty much a list of what I did on an given day and as I get more into my teenage years, it gets less regular, but the woe is me factor gets upped considerably.
This shit is too good not to publish.
Every so often I'm going to pick a week and put it up here. Today we are going to go back to this day 1999.
(NOTE. When I say I'm in my room playing handball with myself its not some euphemism for pulling my plum, I am actually playing handball with myself, hitting the ball against the bedroom wall over and over again)
