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: May 8-9

Springfest was(is?) a spring outdoor festival at BHS. It was founded my freshman year, and for some reason earned a mention in the Wikipedia entry for BHS, so maybe it is still going. (No mention of it on the school's official site.)

Back in my day, at least, it was an opportunity for students' bands to perform and a variety of other activities. In 1993, it included a sand volleyball tournament. I'm decent but not great at volleyball (evidence to the contrary aside), and I like playing a lot, so I joined a team with a few other OK-but-game guys and entered the competition. And were soundly defeated by some of the jockier guys in our class.

My friend Kevin performed, too. It was one of his first public performances as a musician -- but it was far from his last. He does it all the time now.

The second night of Experimentals went well, and the afterparty at Heather's was a lot of fun -- the map is directions to her house (well, was -- she doesn't live there anymore.) We had a bonfire, and then went inside and hung out some more after the mosquitos started biting.

I have no idea what this is a diagram or map of. Nor why there only appear to be B, C and E on it.

The fact that I went to a park with my girlfriend instead of sticking around home on Mother's Day should tell you a little about my relationship with my mom around this time. I'll say that it's improved greatly, and leave it at that. Happy mother's day, mom!
