Dear Diary,
I’m not really sure if I can do this again or not, start writing again… It’s been 5 years since I have kept a diary and after everything that has happened I don’t know where to begin. I like to address my entries to “Dear Diary” so I can feel as though I am talking to someone, writing a letter perhaps, to a close friend. Today is my birthday, I am 24. I’m not ready to write down why it’s been so long since I have written, but it is a new year, and with everything happening lately I finally think I need to whether I am really ready or not.

2. Amelia’s Diaries: A Fresh Start

January 1, 2008
Dearest Diary,

Beginning my entries that way seems so ridiculous to me now, but it’s symbolic to me after all these years. I have to at least begin my first entry that way, it is part of the tradition after all; New Year, new diary. Even if last year’s still has room left. I like to start fresh. I was given my first diary on my 12th birthday January 1, 1989. I am 19 today!!! Happy New Year! I am home from college on winter break; I go back in a few days. It is great, I have made a lot of friends, and I may even have a boyfriend!!! I’ll tell you more about that later! For 7 years now I have always kept a diary, documenting my thoughts, my relationships, my fears and my life! Mom’s calling, time for cake!

1. Amelia’s Diaries: Prologue

It all started simple enough; I would misplace things, forget things, I was tired ALL the time, the nightmares didn’t help. I figured I was just working too hard, I was stressed, or maybe I was coming down with something. I made excuses, until nothing made since anymore…

Do you know that feeling when you wake up in a hotel room and for a brief moment you do not remember where you are? What if that moment didn’t end? It happened to me and the moment became a full blown panic attack.

Yesterday morning I woke up in a hotel room with blood on my shirt, in my hair, under my nails. I have no memory of how I got to the hotel room or where the blood came from. I wasn’t injured, and it didn’t seem to be my blood, but I was alone in the room and there wasn’t blood on anything but me, so whose blood was it?

Reading w/ my daughter
"A Series of Unfortunate Events"

I read this series of 13 books, a few years ago and thought it would be an intriguing series to read with my daughter who is 8, I read, she listens.
If you are not familiar with the series, the title "A Series of Unfortunate Events" fits it perfectly, three children are put through a lot of crazy horrible circumstances but it is written in a humorous way. Situations that in all reality would be sad and depressing don't come off that way in the books. The author constantly writes, "this book is unpleasant, don't read it, put it down, read something happy", haha!

We recently finished the first book in the series:
A Series of Unfortunate Events #1: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
My daughter enjoyed the book and was always eager to find out what would happen next!

It is about 3 children, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire who become orphans when their parents die in a fire. They are put in the care of the villain of the series Count Olaf. The Baudelaire's parents were wealthy and Olaf is out to get the inheritance left to the children.

We just started the next book in the series: The Reptile Room

There was a movie made in 2004 titled Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Jim Carrey was the villain Count Olaf! The movie covered events from the first 3 books. I told my daughter we had to read those books before I would let her watch the movie.
