Kristen's Diary Becomes SCHIZOPHRENIC

Posted by Kristen Geil on March 4, 2011 at 10:35 AM

I know I say this every time, but this is the best diary entry yet. I officially developed multiple personality disorder. I look forward to your all's comments/diagnoses.


Hiked 2 Mt. Patterson.

Had series of skits tonight. Fav one was a B*Witched one. Elizabeth and Caroline, Katie Something, and someone else lip-synched 2 "C'est La Vie."

Today everyone was singing/dancing 2 a song ([There's] Always Something There 2 Remind Me, real good song) w/ brooms and mops!

I've decided 2 make up an invistible (that's my name 4 invisible) twin.


Looks: Blond hair, brown/green eyes.

Height: 4-5 (will change)

Weight: 69 (will change)

I'll think about her name later. I'm going to make her my BEST FRIEND.

I've got invistible pets, too. My fav is Trouble the tiger.

I need to make a list:

Names: Kaavy, Leslie, Kristeen, Mandy. 

I think I'll make my twin Mandy.

Julia thinks she has heartburn.

A Yellow Jacket stung me. 

Let Kelly (assistant head) pull my tooth.

7-2-99 & 7-3-99 (12)

Had a fashion show. I won!

Got people to sign a t-shirt. 

I've made Mandy look different than me:

hair: pale blond

eyes: blue

Mom's picking me up today! I didn't realize how homesick I really am...


Counselors: Courtney and Beth

Friend: Courtney (next door)

craft- keychains

game- 4 square

hike- Bat Cave. It was great! It was only 50 degrees, wet, and we saw bats! I shared my flashlight w/ Debbie. Also, me Debbie, ect. got LOST! It was cool. Found a caterpillar.

I kinda like havin' Mandy around. 'Stead of talkin' aloud, we "telegram" each other. 


Saw my cousins. 2 of them (Evan and Brennan) got 1 of their ears pierced. Victor called me a "demon." We went 2 the pool. Mandy says she liked all of her "cousins" alot.

Went 2 a 4th of July party. My favorite fireworks were the illegal ones. Mandy liked the ones that blow up on the ground. 

At camp (our last day), Mandy, my cabin-mates and I were woken by voices singing "Rise, and shine, and give God your glory glory. (repeated 4 times) Child of the Lord" Then we had 2 walk all over camp in our pjs singing that pathetic song. 

The night before we held a fashion/dance show, and I won once! I had lots of stuff 2 tell Mom and Dad, my bee sting, my tooth, etc.

Got a letter from Pam Miller, saying we can hold the cleanup on Aug. 9! She thought my address was Eunice's though. Oh, well. 

Well, anyway, USA WOmen Soccer is going 2 the Finals! Mandy wants to say something.

Yea! Go Mia Hamm! (from now on, all italics mean this is my twin, "Mandy," writing)

Yeah. I hope we win!

Me too!

I think we know that already, Mandy.

Oh, okay.

I'm about to fall asleep, so night!

Yeah, night!

I am disturbed that you have dialogue with an imaginary person... and that you described "Rise and Shine" as a "pathetic song"...

I really don't even know where to begin when commenting on your diary blog entries. I think mostly I am amused by your banter back and forth with "Mandy." I've told you this already, but to really understand the journey you took to come to having an imaginary twin, you really have to read all of the diary entries in sequence. The build up to this moment has been a long time coming. I'm glad we finally found out what happened to Pam Miller. After your last entry I was genuinely worried about her. And MIA HAMM? Pathetic.

1. This Victor character kinda comes outta nowhere. I'm not sure if he's your cousin, someone at camp, or if he's even real.

2. You really threw me for a loop when you said you had your own way of writing "invisible." I was positive you were just misspelling it. But no, Kristen Geil knew exactly what she was doing. She throws convention and proper spelling to the wind. Anything goes in her diary.

3. I also love your very literal use of punctuation, specifically of the apostrophe. Since an apostrophe can be used as a placeholder when you omit letters, I'm impressed that you adhered to this. Examples: 'Stead, havin', talkin'.

4. And seriously, how can you so nonchalantly refer to such a sacred song as pathetic? I'm just going to pretend Mandy wrote that because I don't want to believe you are that calloused.

5. Pyromaniac much?

6. You must have been really good at fashion shows.

7. Between the pulled tooth, the yellow jacket sting, the pathetic song, and Julia's heartburn, sounds like camp was a BLAST.

8. You were truly a pioneer in chat language (what with your use of numbers for letters and all).

Every single one of Brandon's observations made me LOL

I REALLY hope Mandy sticks around for a while. Also, I'm fairly confident that we haven't heard the last of "Victor."

I had no idea you were so deeply disturbed... :)
