Dear Friend,

Before I get “started” I just like to thank the person who looked at every single post I have ever posted today… To think that you looked at 90 posts all in one day surprises me, for who in their right mind would just listen to the same person all day??? I don’t know, but, nevertheless, I was flattered. The real reason I’m here is well, to talk some more, go figure. Now as I’ve said before I’ve been trying to fill my journal so that in 2 weeks ( technically it’s less than that!) when I move into the Dorm I can begin my new journal without wasting any of the pages from my current journal, and have a “Clean Break” between high school and college as far as content. This is NOT going well, in fact I haven’t written in my journal since I wrote to you about my hopes to fill it… Maybe tomorrow I will be able to get started on that endeavor once again. Speaking of plans for this week it’s time for the FAIR!!! What you probably don’t know is that This year Bwill be a stand dedicated to TEENS!!! yes, those people entering  through leaving highschool! Games, Prizes, etc. This is all to introduce a new facebook page that is all about, you guessed it, teens! This page is to be a place where discussions can happen, where you can learn about what other people are doing in the community, and what YOU can do in the community…personally, I think it’s awesome, but go check it out yourself!!! Just go to http://www.facebook.com/#!/shoutout.harrisonburg.rockingham and like the page… TADAH!!! you’re in! It’s that easy to connect with other youth across Rockingham County/Harrisonburg Area to find out what opportunities are going on, not to mention participate in the various contests that will be held from time to time. So I will be volunteering on Wednesday and Friday, from 5:45-10pm so come out, stop by, play a game (or a few)and just say HI! Can’t wait to see you!

Love, Mandi Jo
