I actually went to geology today. I couldn't pay attention though. I knew this going into it, because I had homework to do for my next class (that I'm actually in right now as I write this). But there was a catch. I couldn't even concentrate on the thing distracting me from the teacher rambling on about different kinds of volcanoes and the hazards they present. There was this girl in front of me writing a letter in pink sharpie. She had perfect fingernails, an iPhone in a white cover, and Starbucks. This is the kind of person sitting in front of me in Rocks for Jocks. Not your normal Generic Baylor Girl, but she was in spirit, I assure you. Anyway, I happened to read the first sentence, and I was hooked. This was a teenage drama on paper. It was so entertaining that I decided to copy it down. I started after she already had half a page or so, so I missed the last bit of the page while I was furiously copying, since she turned the page. Same thing happened between 2nd and 3rd pages and at the end when she flipped back to the front to tear out the loving bit of literature. For your entertainment (and her horror, should she ever find this somehow), I've copied my transcribing below. Enjoy.


You lied. I know you were talking to Chris last night. I’m not completely uninteligent [sic]. I know yall have been talking for a while which means you’ve been lying for a while. I’m hurt. I’m so so hurt. Have I not proven myself loyal to you? Why would you lie to my face over and over? Best friends don’t do that. Obviously it’s because you don’t want to tell me. And for that I’m sorry. I’m sorry you feel like you can’t tell me, Tiffy the reason I don’t want you to date him is because you deserve better. I’m not sure if you think I’m jealous or what. I’m sorry if you I’ve acted that way, but Tiff its not that I want you to be single, its that I want you to be in a relationship with someone amazing. I’ve been single forever. It sucks. I wouldn’t wish single on anyone. Sure, I’m not going to lie I do get jealous that guys fall at your feet all the time and I know that’s something

standards for myself and therefore have very high standards for you. Waiting sucks, but its worth it because I firmly believe God has someone for me, someone who is perfect for me in every way and encourages me to be a better person and a better Christian. I don’t know exactly what’s going on with you and Chris, but if yall are already staying I love you again then it has to be serious. If he really is changing and really is getting right with God then wait, it hasn’t been enough time. Tiffany, I sat there last night frozen in my bed. I thought I was going to be sick when I realized you were talking to him. IT hurts that you don’t listen to me or anyone else about this. I’m being honest here, it feels like no matter what I say you pick him over me every time. I do not support any relationship you have with him. I support your relationship with Jesus Christ. I’m sorry you can’t tell me you can’t trust me, that its going to take a long time for me to get over this. I know you’re not a confrontational person, but go, talk. Don’t worry about what I want you to say and tell me how you feel, about Chris, me, everything. We have a lot to talk about, but if you value our friendship like I do then we can get through this. I just need you to be honest

[lost a few sentences]

hurt me before. I’m hurt that I haven’t been the friend you need.  I have never lied to you, never deceived you, I know I’m not always great at this but I’ve always been there for you. You said you don’t want Chris ruining our friendship. Well I would be lying if I said he’s not. I don’t know

[lost a sentence. She signed with her initials.]

I think this is the best day of Geology so far. I learned so much.
