You must to be so careful not to get a bad reputation in High School

April 18, 1964, Saturday. Dave K. doesn’t have the class Howard has. I still like Howard. Lauri saw Howard a a dance and said he looked sad.

Had to get up early to go to Patricia Stevens Modeling School. I wore the same thing as last night. I could tell they were impressed with me, but they thought my eyeliner was too thick. They told my sister Donna and me that we could pay for the course by modeling professionally and I get an interview with a big Director. We start Tuesday. Got home from Pasadena at 4;30. Dave K. picked me up at 6:00. We doubled with Jack and Linda. Went out to eat at Truman’s. It was bitchen. I love Dave and he acted like he likes me. We went to the Centinela Drive-In and saw “Soldier in the Rain.” I kissed Dave. We left after the first show and went to his friend’s house. It was “so tough,” with a fireplace. Dave and I made out in the bedroom for an hour or more. It’s so hard after going with one boy. If I let Dave do everything I let Howard do, he might think I’m cheap and just use me. What am I going to do… What!!

My sister Donna was an ad in the paper about Patricia Stevens Modeling School.  My parents allowed us to drive from Culver City to Pasadena once a week for our classes.  We wanted to do modeling.  I wanted to be an actress as well.

Now I’m sure Howard told everyone I let him get to second base before breaking up.  Now what do you do when a new guy expects you to put out and you don’t want to get a bad reputation.  But you like him.  Of course if your not drinking you say no….More will be revealed, so stay tuned.
