June 18th    Starting something new…….


I am a little surprised I am doing this and no doubt would be made fun of my some of my friends. Keeping a journal? I decided to do this – to record my thoughts, my life on paper to clear stuff out of my head and if I ever have kids to have something to pass onto them. Maybe they can gain some kind of wisdom from me – who knows? 

Well – I plan to write stuff every day but may miss a day or so every once in a while. Work gets busy, life gets busy. 

What has been going on lately? Did a crazy thing and bought a new Jeep. Saved up and put a large amount down so my monthly payment would be low. A big event coming up in a couple weeks – my 20 year high school reunion. I am a bit nervous about it. Most everyone I went to school with I have not kept in contact with. I wish I had. I wasn’t very popular and tended to be somewhat of a loner. Then there is the question of “M” – that’s what I called Monica. We dated most of twelfth grade and it was pretty serious – then after graduation things just fell apart and I moved away. I wonder if she will be there. Will she be married? Kids? Likely of course. Not everyone has stayed single like me – just never found anyone. Ok – let’s be honest here – I never found anyone to replace M. 

OK. There is my first entry in “Jed’s Journal.” Going to watch a rerun of The Walking Dead before I hit the sack.
