We Asked Readers to Share Their Old Diary Entries and They're Just as Embarrassing as We Expected
“School was not fun today but I saw a lot of dogs so everything was OK.”
Oh, sweet childhood. Is there nothing more cringe-worthy than going through old diaries and reading excerpts of entries written by struggling humans of the funniest kind (read: our teenage selves). Due to the fact that we love voluntary embarrassment of all sorts, we recently asked our readers to submit pages from their old diaries. From a young visionary who had a plan to destroy all the boys, to a girl who had early insight into the true priority of women everywhere (dogs, duh), these childhood diaries are nothing short of comedic gold.
Keep reading below to view some of the best entries we received. Thank you to everyone who submitted.

If Love Is in the Air, Don’t Breathe
“Love is in the air right now and guess who’s not breathing it? Hmm the person who just wrote that. I want guys, don’t get guys, don’t need guys, gotta have guys. Stupid. But it’s going to be Valentine’s Day soon and I know I’ll still be alone and it’ll suck. But I don’t want to go out with just anyone, I want to like the person I date, obviously.
