[Apr 18-23, 1911]
Tues. April 18, 1911
Went to school. I got A on my card in Latin that is the first time I have gotten A in latin for so long I could hardley believe it. This afternoon I read and then I took Ardith walking and we went up to Mrs Wrights to get home grape juice. She and her husband are both deaf and I had to walk right in and present myself I guess it’s the first time Ardith ever saw a deaf person. I had a dreadful time trying to talk to Mrs W. Oh it is such a pitaful[sic] sight he is liable to die any time. I just dread to get old and wrinkled, what if I should be deaf!!

It has rained all day just a steady downpour!! Nothing particularly interesting has happened today and I don’t think there ever will anything very interesting happen. I feel so dissatisfied with everything and everbody nowadays!

I haven’t done anything but lay around and read all day. I’m stiffer than anything today! I have been reading some out of the autobiography of Mrs. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward (you know she just died in January) I enjoyed some parts very much. I wonder if my life would sound interesting to anyone if they read this diary I think it is so monotonous and unexciting! I read part of Betty Wales Freshman I hope will be as popular and have as good a time in college as she did. I am so different from most girls you see I don’t dance or go to the theater or opera or anything that other people go to so I suppose most people think I’m queer. I love to play tennis and swim and play basket ball and do those things though so I guess I’m not absolutly[sic] hopeless.
