grrlPOWrr's Journal Archive!
We are NO LONGER updating this. It's pointless.
Just read the CURRENT entries.
And then when I found out that Nikki (a way cool RiotGrrl) liked it, i was sOOOO syked (sp?)!!! So be sure to check out my article in the next ish which is comin out on Nov. 30th! Ohhh weird story for ya:
Ok, get this, I am at THE dullest party (its an art show for my dad's friend) and all it is is a bunch of adults schmoozing.......DULLLLLLL!!! Well, I am sitting deep into my thoughts when this old guy comes up to me (SCARY!)... and he's like: "Do you have a spiral notebook in your pocket?" And I'm like...what the hell???? So, in my strongest voice I say: "No." And then he is like"Well, if you had one, then you wouldn't be quite as bored! Because you could write down all your thoughts!" This wasn't such a bad idea, but the way he said it was FREAKY! And then, he just got up and walked away!!! LOL! N-e-wayz, that day I went out and bought a spiral notebook, and it does stay in my pocket!!
Well, thats it for 2day!!!!

Well, here I am, in the library of our school…..This is my first journal entry…CAITLIN has been nagging me for like 2 weeks now to write in this damn thing so I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Rose and I go to the same school as Caitlin. She is one of my best buds….being the vehement feminist am , I constantly was lecturing mi amigos about feminist issues. I guess my ranting and raving finally drilled in because one day Caitlin said to me, LETS MAKE A WEBPAGE DEDICATED TO GRRLS!!!!! So, here we are, combining Caitlin’s html powers with my creative?!???!? powers…..OK NOW THAT I’VE THOUROGHLY BORED U………THESE ARE MY FAVORITE WORDS/PHRASES : Genius, MONSTRO TIME, Monster Butt (not to be confused with monstro time!!!), YOUVE BEEN ERASED, and Caitlin and I’s new theme song, I AINT A DOG, WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF, I AINT A DOG, WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF……..OK this is my favorite quote: The world was not given to us by our parents, it was loaned to us by our children……THAT QUOTE ROX!!!! Well, that’s all for now…I’ll write more later..that is if I can get our act together!!!!!

Hey alL! ROSE FINALLY WROTE IN HERE! Yippy! Its a miracle!! I started keeping my little notebook today....it roxx!! Every grrl should get one! They keep you occupied in the dullest of dull classes, u can write anything in them, and it is totally yours, no one elses. It is your private thoughts, feelings, promises, wishes. I ahve already written 4 pages in it, and such a relief has come over me, I feel 10 times better. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR! GET ONE! Gotta run, we are gonna add a Comic section to the zine.....so i haveta find some comics to put in there!!!!
Novemeber 20, 1996
Hi again!!! I think my bad days are over...YAY! So no more depresing entries (even though their were none) in here. I am sitting in the library at my school, its cool, technology and stuff! I mean, where else can you alter your own webpage away from home?? A lot of places...but that isn't the point...I spent the bulk of my free time in school today looking at pictures of my love...Leonardo DiCaprio.... The bus leaves in 10 minutes, wow. Time to kill.... Hey, have you ever looked at brothers and sisters of people that you know?? They are either totally differne,t or exactly the same...well, Pluto's little bro is sittin next to me (he is in 6th grade) and he has to be one of the weirdest kids I have ever seen in my entire life....Oh well, I guess you could catoragize this as blabbering.......Oh well, random thoughts and ?'s, thats just me 4 ya! Rose is typing up another journal entry on a seperate puter here in the library.....I haveta send it to myself in a sec so I can record it in here!!!! Well, the comic section is TOTALLY complete! I think that the bad language in it is alittle to abundant, but who cares?? Oh well, hope you enjoy it!
Ugh! I hate B days!!! At our school, there is a three day schedule, A, then C then B and it rotates…..B days are the only days where I don’t have any free periods, thus, I have no time to myself!!!!!! Today at lunch I had bag check for the EOE (educational outdoor education) I am going on….I AM REALLY EXCITED!!!!!!!! What really sucks is that I am missing 2 days of school (no, that DOESNT suck) but I am missing like 5 tests that I have to make up in a period of 2!!!! Days…..I am REALLY stressed out right now….I am sooo sore from yesterdays b-ball practice……well, I have to go change now, ill try to write ore later………

Just got back from B'ball practice....it is a really tuff (tough) workout!! We run a helluva lot, and then shoot and stuff (drills 2). I play postion #3. Which means I am a guard, a wing (which basically IS a guard) AND a forward. Thats cool, I like it. Switching around positions is a lot of fun. See, I wouldn't consider myself tall at ALL, but since our team is realtivley short, that is why they need my at the forward position. And guard has just always been my position since 7th grade (thats when I started playing). Rose and I and Rach all play JV (junior varsity) and Jenn is point guard/guard for the Varsity team! She is Ms. Basketball! Well, I gotta run, i have 3 tests to study 4...yippy, this oughta be a hoot.
UG!!!! now caitlin and i have switched places!!!!! now I am the sick one!!! double ug!!!!!!!! my dad let me stay home from school today so i am well enough to go on my EOE trip tomorrow morning..... right now i feel like crap! my throght feels like it is swollen twice its size!!! my nose is tripping like a faucet and i cant hear or smell a thing.....ok, enough of my whinning...i am seriously screwed...our first game in basket ball is on tuesday and i am wayyyyyy out of practice....i couldnt go to practice today and i am going to be in joshua tree tommorow and monday......i probably wont even play in the game..i suck any way......wow, for the first time i am consisered one of the "tall" people on the team... wich is strange, because i normally consider myself average.....right now i am talking to caitlin on the phone........well, ill write more in this journal about my trip when i return, but for now, farewell.
monster says goodbye,
