Annie LeBlanc: Rhyme's Diary Reboot Entry 12



So much has happened since I last wrote to you. A month has gone by since Birdie came back to Attaway, which means it’s been a month since T.K. sent back my letters and Ezra saw them. That was humiliating, but it was also an important stepping stone in the mosaic mural of a lesson I’ve been learning which is this: time heals all wounds. One month later and I’m not humiliated by those letters anymore. I’m not even broken hearted about T.K. anymore. Wow, never thought I’d write those words.

And yes, falling for Ezra played a role in me getting over T.K, but I think it’s more than that. This year I got to explore a new passion that has helped me discover parts of myself that I’ve been keeping bottled up for so long. I’m a writer now—another thing I never thought I’d say! Finally getting to know myself was the key to finally letting go of T.K. And even though I like Ezra, and I want to see where things can go with him, my life is never going to be about a boy ever again, because I’m so much more than that.

I don’t regret the past or wish that anything had gone differently. The emotional ups and downs I’ve encountered have made me who I am today—and I like who I am today! AND I like who my friends have become. I’m proud of each and every one of them. I’m proud of us.

Oh, did I mention I’m nominated for a journalism award?!
