Dork Diaries 01 - Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life


How much do I want to read more? 7/10

Obviously, I didn’t want to answer it because I had a really bad feeling they were going to be a little disappointed when they actually saw my phone.
So I just stood there praying that it would stop ringing, but it didn’t. And pretty soon, everyone in the hallway was staring at me too.
The most important lesson I learned last year was that having a CRUDDY phone—or NONE at all—can totally RUIN your social life.

I’ve tried saving up my own money to buy one, but it was impossible to do. Mainly because I’m an artist and TOTALLY ADDICTED to drawing!
Like, if I don’t do it every day, I’ll go NUTZ!
I spend ALL of my cash on sketchbooks, pencils, pens, art camp, and other stuff. Hey, I’m so BROKE.

when mom came home from the mall with a special back-to-school present for me I was absolutely ECSTATIC.
a DIARY. This is THE worst present I have ever received in my entire life! I wanted to yell at the top of my lungs:
“Mom, I don’t need a STUPID book with 288 BLANK pages!!”

MY LIFE TOTALLY SUCKS!!
All day I wandered around my new school like a zombie in lip gloss. Not a single person bothered to say hi.

MOST OF THE TIME I FEEL INVISIBLE!

THIS IS SO NOT-NOT ME!
