December 19, 1964, Saturday
Well, my last year of High School and I didn’t go to the Snow Ball. Nobody to ask either. I’m so sad. I worked at Charleston’s Dress Store all day, then came home and watched TV. All my friends are leaving for the mountains tomorrow morning at 5:00 am. There won’t be anybody to hang out with… but, I’ll be working until Christmas anyway. Pearl, Sandy, Diane, Edna, Linda, Angie and Bonnie are all going. I’m working to buy Mom and Dad Christmas presents.
I’m sad I don’t have a boyfriend to ask to the Snow Ball, but I seem to be in a real productive work mode right now. I’m determined to work so I can buy extra nice Christmas presents for m parents with my own money, (for the first time in my life,)… so I can make it a fun Christmas for them the way they always make it so magical for us kids. As far as the Mountain trip is concerned, I hate going to the Mountains and would rather work than risk getting sick up there.
