Hey faithful readers! Or reader. I do realize this is my own journal but, perhaps, hundreds of years from now some archaeologist will find this book and read it! So, whoever you are, welcome back to the life of Emily Marie Macdonia.
By the way that’s me! /^\
Weird name you might say, yah, I know. I get that a lot! My name has resulted in many ‘nicknames.’ Some are ok, like E.m.m. But others, like Macadamia nut, are not so fun! But, that’s not important! I’m not here to talk about my name! I’m here too, well, talk about myself, but beyond my name!
Yah, I’m writing about my life. It was crazy before, but it just got weird.
Take yesterday for example.
From high and mighty Seattle, Washington, to low, and swampy North Carolina.
Bath, North Carolina.
Yah. That’s what I thought when Dad told me!
Bath!? Well, there went my reputation! Why don’t I just go announce to all my school friends,
“Hey, guy’s, I’m moving!”
“Oh! Where too?”
“Bath, North Carolina!”
UH! Yah! Might as well just say we’re living in a bath tub! And it’s real place too! Look it up! That’s what I did!
Ok, so it did turn out to be an alright town! It’s old, like 310 years old! Sweet right!? I know. It’s a cute little place and one of the oldest ‘towns’ around, but um, it’s not a town.
I looked it up. According to google there’s only 249 people there! Compared to Seattle which has what, 652, 405 people that’s puny! So yah, Seattle’s only 2,620 times bigger than Bath.
Bath! Seriously who named this place?
So I looked it up. According to google . . . “When all else fails right! lol. ;)”
Anyways, Bath was started by colonial people. (Obviously it was the 1700’s.) Apparently, a guy named John Lawson founded Bath. He was an explorer and he also founded New Bern but he was killed by Indians. For awhile it was said Bath was North Carolina’s capital but I don’t think that lasted long. [Hint: The population.] Anyways I was bored most of the long drive here so, yes, I learned a lot about the history of Bath.
But even that couldn’t prepare me for actually getting there. The history, population, or even the name were nothing compared to what it was really like! And yes, I, the Washington girl raised in Seattle, was in for it!
I had no idea what was coming!
