Hey, it’s Alana!
For my 13th birthday, my parents presented me with this diary. Apparently, it isn’t any normal diary though, it’s a different kind of diary. I’m supposed to write here every single year, on my birthday, June 19th.
My parents said it is supposed to help me “document my life” and see how things change throughout my lifetime.
Got to go now, Mom and Dad are taking us out to a special birthday dinner and I don’t want to be late! Talk to you next year!
The worst words in the world, COVID-19. Ugh, I hate to even see that word, let alone write it.
The COVID-19 outbreak, commonly known as the coronavirus, is horrible.
My next-door neighbor got it and the entire neighborhood had to quarantine for 2 weeks!
The Corona Virus isn’t the only thing bad about 2020, there are also murder hornets, fires all over the place, and people claiming a zombie apocalypse is coming! And that’s just the beginning.
Life sucks. Even though it’s my birthday, I’m trapped inside as if I’m in jail. I don’t get a party, none of my friends can come over. It’s awful. 2020 is a terrible year.
Well, guess what?! There was a zombie apocalypse after all! And I don’t even care. After you have survived the coronavirus, you can survive practically anything!
I made a new friend. His name is Brains, cause that’s all he says, so I assume that’s his name. He does stare at my head a lot, though. I think he might like me!
All the scientists are getting really worried cause we had a sudden change in temperature.
A month ago the average temperature for the world was about 59 degrees, now it is around 49. I don’t understand what the big dilemma is, 70 degrees high in summer is way better than 95.
Guess what? Now I can DRIVE!! The people on the news don’t advise it in the winter, thanks to the cold weather, but it doesn’t matter to me! I’m still going to swerve on the road and go as fast as I can!
I should’ve listened to those news reporters…
A few weeks ago I was driving on a super icy and slippery road and I swerved off the side of the road! I landed up in the hospital with a broken leg and spine. I can hopefully get back to my normal lifestyle in two to three months. Luckily my friends have been visiting almost every day so I’m not that bored!
Brains and I have been official for 4 months now! I guess I was right about him liking me. Some of our best dates have been:
- Watching our new favorite movie, ‘Zombies and Humans’. Guess what? We spotted Brains as one of the background characters!
- Caroling around the holidays! Brains didn't really sing though, he just repeated the same word the whole time.
- The amusement park! Brains thought that one of the kid’s heads was cotton candy, though, so we had to leave.
Sorry that I’m writing this after my birthday, but everything was frozen! What the scientist predicted had turned out to be right! The temperature is dropping, and fast. The average temperature is now around 20 degrees, almost 25 degrees colder than what it was a few years ago. The good news out of this is that I can go ice skating and sledding whenever I want.
But then this spaceship came over the earth and you’ll never guess who came out! It was somebody who looked just like Brains and the other zombies! But instead of coming to earth and living here, they took all the zombies back! I’m going to go sob upstairs. Goodbye
Ever since all the zombies were taken away by some mysterious person, the world has become quite dull again. Some scientists are still trying to figure out what happened while others have completely given up.
I moved out of my parents house a few months ago and am now living in a small apartment in Los Angeles. Things are definitely a lot different without having your parents around, and a lot more expensive. Luckily I got a job as a grocery store manager, so I can afford all the bills. Maybe next year I will try college.
Guess what?!?! The zombies came back! Apparently the people that captured the zombies were using them as slaves! The zombies fought back and somehow got all of them all back to earth, where they belong.
Brains and I have decided to try college, though we cant decide where. Brains wants to go to ZU- Zombies University - while I want to go to UCLA. I am sure we will figure it out.
I know you’re all wet, and I’m sorry! There was this massive flood, and everything got soaked! I almost drowned, but to be honest, it was kind of awesome! I went swimming for two days straight!
Bad news, though. Brains and I broke up, as we decided that we couldn’t do a long distance relationship. I’m handling it just fine, but Brains has been a mess. I hope we both get accepted into our colleges! Even though we’re not dating anymore, I still wish the best for him, and we have stayed fast friends!
I got accepted into UCLA!!! I am so excited!! I can’t wait to get to college! Nothing interesting this year really happened. Aliens from outer space visited, so that was cool! I met this little alienette named Maya, and she was so cute! I think she was only a few light-years old!
I can't believe it has been 10 years since I got you! You’ve been with me through my highs and lows. I just wanted to thank you for giving me this chance to document everything that’s happened! Wow, I can’t believe I’m talking to a book. Well, I wish me luck! Bye!
