The end of my last full week at home. Despite the fact that I don't yet have a clue what to expect, I'm preparing for it by shaving regularly now and using that acne soap on my face several times a day.
Listened to all my Partridge Family albums today while I wrote my latest chapter.
Dad went over the river but got me no comics.
In today's mail we got a thank you card from Jeff about college. That depressed me.
NOTES: I was late getting acne and I actually thought I had avoided it but by this point it was a rampant issue that bothered me much more than my grey hair. Like many young males, I had facial hair that wouldn't really coalesce into anything at that point, too. It was just annoying. There are a few photos of me in 1979 with a bit of a beard (see above) but it was 1982 when I grew my first full beard. I've worn one most of the time since than.
My cousin Jeff is a year older than I and he was off to college at this point so, coming after my attempt just the day before to accept that I would never go, his thank-you card was a bit of a blow.
