18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Friday, March 28, 1913: Am glad this is the last school day for this week. I guess, I’ll be glad when school stops. Am counting the days.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Sounds like Grandma had “senioritis.” She was counting the days until graduation, and two days prior to this diary entry her teacher lectured her on her behavior:
Teacher gave the school a lecture, but it was really meant for me. I don’t think what I did was so bad, but I guess I won’t do it again. I might catch it right there.
Grandma—I have you have a relaxing week-end.
