Thursday, December 30 & Friday, December 31

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: December 30-31

Yvette's yet again. To give you an idea of how important a meeting place it was, the list of 14 people on the edge of this page represent at least seven different friend circles I had in high school:
- My senior year lunch friends (Brooke and Gabriela)
- The Rotating Intellectuals (Bryant)
- Theatre (Liz, Jesse, Daneka)
- Childhood friends (Tim)
- Art department (Al, Katie)
- Yvette's, essentially (Christian, Dan)
- Honors kids (Grechtsteiner, Bryant, Brandon)
Throw in Melissa, who was with me, and there's eight. And of course there was overlap between groups.

It was great seeing everyone, but it reinforced how unhappy I was at school at the time. That was going to change (for the better, I hoped) as I switched to a new dorm the next quarter, but being back in this environment where I was surrounded by friendly faces and deep relationships just heightened the homesickness I was already feeling.

Melissa and I went to Bryant's house for New Year's Eve. It was a fun party, and in the midst of it, Bryant tried to get as many people as possible to do a polar plunge with him out on the lake. Only Amanda and Tori took the challenge. Tori lasted all of about two seconds, but Bryant and Amanda tried to outlast each other and went longer. I doubt they were in the water for more than 30 seconds, even still. (Bryan't quote, "I could tell you the duration in inches," is hilarious.

Melissa had to be home by 1am, so we sadly didn't get to stay long after the countdown to midnight.
