Dear Carnation, Well, I just got back from campmeeting yesterday and alot happened. Me and Liz got in trouble every night except two. That's pretty pathetic.

Before I get into the details, I will say that this whole book has pretty much been a waste because Curt broke up with me in a letter. Just thought I'd tell ya. It's over. All those months of liking him were a waste. I can, however, honestly say that I'm glad he's going to boarding school next year. This means I won't have to see him for a year.

I found out the second night of campmeeting that Brandon liked me the whole year. He told me. The whole school year! Unbelievable. I know that he doesn't now, but I didn't find that out until the 25, which was a Thursday.

You see, I was starting to like him and he acted like he liked me too. He hugged me and put his arm around me and one night even came into the dorm room I was in and slept in bed with me until 5 in the morning, when he left. That was a crazy night. We layed there, my head on his chest and his arm around me. He was wearing only his boxers and I was wearing only a really big tank top (with underwear). He kept rubbing his hands on me and kissing my fingers while I was touching his hair. He kissed me good night (but not, like, a real kiss). Don't you think that's a good indicator that he might like me? I guess I took it wrong. Who knows?

Another night, Liz and I snuck out and slept in someone's tent. (They weren't there.) He came in and got into the cot with me. That night wasn't as obscene. He just kept touching my knees and stuff like that. I kissed his cheek when he left. He's been avoiding me ever since.

The new love of my life is Dylan. I call him "Dylan my love." I'm not exactly sure what he thinks of me, but I just like to tease him alot. He probably thinks I'm really weird. He did pick a flower for me with his own hands and handed it to me ever so lovingly. Who knows if this will lead to anything? I hope so, but I won't find out until school starts in September.

At campmeeting, I met a bunch of new people and got to know all the people I already knew alot better. Unfortunately, I also got to know more about Curt. People were saying that he had another girlfriend at the same time as he was going out with me. That makes me so mad. He did a good job of hiding it since there's no way I could have found out about her. I wonder if he told her about me. Probably not.

There are so many campmeeting experiences that I wish I had written about at the time, but I didn't. It would take me years to write it all now. I will say that I had a total blast (I still hate that phrase) and that I hope next year is as much fun.

Well, I love ya, Carnation.


P.S. Aren't you glad it's over between me and Jerk? I am.
