January 21, 1925
Oh, I was never so heartbroken in my life as I was last nite! I nearly cried my poor, weak eyes out, and it seemed my heart was like ice. After school we went to lab, then Mrs. Heavin came over for the afternoon + for supper. Fred came at 7 and we went to the basketball game. Lost. Everything went wrong and we had our first real quarrel since we began going together 2 years ago. It nearly killed me.
Cut Span class to try to mend matters with Fred. I knew it we could reason it all out we’d be all right, and we were. We were both smiling. Studied chem, then went back to dear old “gym”. Home + studied some more, at 8:30 there was a fire 3 blocks away and we chased to it. Studied til I nearly dropped. Oh, I’m so glad my heart feels natural again. I’ve been so worried, I just seemed like someone else.
Heavens! I’m so tired – so weary! Got up early to study for the Chem test. Cut French and studied some more. Then we had it. Oh! I do hope I passed. Stayed to tennis club meeting til 1:30, had lunch, then back to play tennis. Fred came to town with us, then we studied til supper, and went to the science lecture with the folks and Fred. Dad didn’t come home to supper and we found he had been locked up on the jury. We studied til after 12. So tired!
School til 11. Washed my hair then went to get my permanent. She wanted to bob my hair, and wouldn’t put in the wave on top of this old wave. I came back home and I’m going back Thursday to have it bobbed and get the wave put in. I hope I don’t look too much of a fright. Wrote to Hop in afternoon, then Fred and I went to “Thief of Bagdad” It was wonderful. Oh, I wonder why I love Fred so much, but at other times, I am just disgusted with him.
To S.S. Even tho Fred does want me to be a Methodist, I’ll never be one. Things were revealed to me so clearly this morning that I realized clearly that no one can take this wonderful truth from me. I do care for Fred, but not that much. I studied and fooled around the rest of the day. Fred called and was awfully sweet.
Diary, I’m just so thrilled! After school, gym was wonderful. Oh! some of the bumps we did get, tho. A girl sat on my face. But had a grand time. Home + studied, then at 8 Field Reynaud came over. He’s so marvelous and I learned so many new jazz tricks and a dear new piece of his. Field is so polished and so wonderful. It would be so easy to learn to care for him.
It began sleeting on our way to school. Had 2 classes then home. To town at 2 and went to “Miss Bluebeard”, shopped then home. Studied, Asked Dad about my hair + he just laughed.Only 1 more day with long hair. Oh, I do hope I look cute with it bobbed! Wonder what Fred will say? He was jealous again when I told him of Field. Honestly, I don’t know what to do about him.
