Journal Entry-Dear Diary, today was just like every other day. Long and hard. We did get a lot done though. I am sitting here in a small boardinghouse with about 20 other girls. It was very hot out today, which doesnt help in the boarding house. I am now going to sleep because I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow.
