I flip to the next page, anxiety growing in the pit of my inner stomach. --OMG!!! I got my first phone. I can't believe it. Never would I have dreamed of it. Thanks, Mom! OMG, I am so happy! Words cannot describe the amount of ecstasy flowing through me right now. Earlier, I pinched myself, literally. Like, am I in a wonderland where good things just appear suddenly? When she gave me the phone, I asked my mom to pinch me, too. And she pinched me so hard! "Ouch! That hurt," I said. "Well, you told me to pinch you," Mom replied. But not that hard. Geesh! I almost had to hold back tears after her pinch. My arm is still a little swollen.

--From my last entry, you must think that I have a very close relationship with my mom, and she is my best friend, and I tell her all my secrets and all sorts. But that is far from the case. The truth is that my mom does not know that I have been bullied since the beginning of middle school.
