Bertie (27th September 2005- 5th December 2005)
"A bit about me:
I'm seventeen years old and studying A-levels in 3D art, English literature, and graphic design, and a CACHE diploma in childcare. I have naturally brown, curly hair, but it's dyed black. I wear black emo glasses and braces. As soon as they come off I'm getting my lip pierced twice. I have my nose pierced, a scaffold, and my ears pierced four times. Soon I'm getting my nape pierced. I would describe myself as emo. My favourite bands are My Chemical Romance, The Used and Green Day, all of whom I have seen). I'm going to see MCR and The Used again in Novemeber, and I can't wait!"
10th October 2005:
"I've decided that after my snakebites, I'm getting my right cheek pierced. Just the one. Most people (well, the two I know who have their cheeks pierced) have both, but i want to be different. And I can't get both anyway, 'cos my left side will be too busy. I've decided that I want a bat tattooed on each hip."
18th October 2005
"I went to Asda to buy skeleton gloves like Frank Iero but they'd sold out so I consoled myself by buying a pumpkin light and bat garland to decorate my room. I wanted some rubber bats to hang from my cieling but they'd sold out so I consoled myself by buying a pumpkin light and bat garland to decorate my room." [Yes, the repetition was in my diary. No idea why!]
23rd October 2005:
"When I was in the airport I drew some amazing doodles- a gothic bride crying tears of blood, a couple of fallen angels, a gravestone splattered with blood, and, my personal favourite, Gerard Way holding a microphone in the air, whilst his shadow holds a gun up."
5th November 2005:
"OH MY GOD! Yesterday was the best day of my life- I MET MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE!!! [I met them at the stage door after a gig. I write for pages and pages about the experience and the conversations we had]... I was so calm throughout the whole thing. It was only when I was on the bus that I started hyperventilating and just now burst into tears. They're such lovely people- so polite and modest. I'll never get over it!"

I would describe myself as emo. My favourite bands are My Chemical Romance and The Used, who I have met. The guys from MCR, especially Gerard Way, were lovely, as was Jepha Howard but Bert McCracken was a knob. I have also met Gareth Davies- another legend."
9th December 2005:
"I'm getting my nose pierced again tomorrow. *Excitingness!* Mummy doesn't know. On Wednesday, she told me not to get any more. Oops!"
6th January 2005:
"Jamie (my then-boyfriend) is coming round here before we go to the cinema so Mummy will have a field day. She's desperate to meet him. She managed to get from me that he works at Maplin, so she went there and looked at all guy's name badges".
5th February 2005:
"On Friday, we skipped college to queue up for Funeral's gig".
18th February 2005:
"Yes, I'm writing binue and I dn't care. 'cos I'm so drunk right now!"
["Binue" is supposed to be "in blue". I can remember to use apostrophes correctly, but not how to spell "blue"! Oh, and that was significant because I only like to write in black ink.]
17th April 2006:
"I'm going to set my brother up with a Myspace account".
