One of the lads
A relaxed and good-natured atmosphere at school as we broke up today. I spent some of the time reading Kerouac (still!) and I didn’t see Claire until third period History, which I enjoyed. Jeremy gave a seminar on the Balkans crisis.
Third lunch I saw Claire again: we got on well. Duncan once again insinuated that she's “head over heels” about me and they were really vicious with each other. It’s been like that all week. The remaining hours passed talking with Sean Laxton and acting as “one of the lads,” while off to my left I could see Jeremy, with Andrew and Laura.
After school I played chess and draughts with Evelyn. Sad.
Did nowt in the evening.
