About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: April 4-5

Like I said, Saturday night turned into a party, so Sunday was pretty quiet.

My friend Katrina tried out for The Jungal Book [sic] and pretty much blew everyone away. I opted not to try out for that show, but a lot of my friends did. It was fun watching a play from the audience for the first time since my freshman year.

I don't know whether it was true that more Europeans visited Barrington that spring, but it sure seemed like it. Foreign languages were a rarity in that neck of the woods.

And speaking of foreign languages, my friend Suzanne send me a letter letting me know she was in Oslo. She had graduated a year early so she could spend a year studying abroad. She was hoping for Germany, but ended up in Finland because Finnish was supposedly relatively easy for someone fluent in German to pick up. She mostly hated it. I think she spent a semester there, then traveled for a couple months, starting with Oslo (I think; Suz, correct me if I'm wrong), before coming home. It was neat getting updates from her -- they usually had a somewhat cheerfully resigned tone.
