This is an archive of journals from late high school. A bit like a diary, this was a personal fork off of my senior project at the time to build a fully functioning blog site that people could sign up for, manage, and etc. I managed to recover all the posts, but I apparently forgot to back up the comments and attached music tables before repurposing my personal server, so those are mostly gone. This is a little embarrassing but not as awful as my old Geocities/tcn.heathenkitties.net early high school journals.

A torrent of "Hello?"s rushed out from the receiver all from different people, and I could not answer to each one--I hung up, and the phone rang again, same thing. I was scared. Who were all these people? Why were they recorded? Why were they calling me?

When the phone rang again, I pressed a button to hang up on it. It immediately rang again. I could not press the button fast enough. I wondered why my parents weren't up to see what this was all about. I hoped it wasn't bothering them too much.

I picked up the receiver again, and it was the same torrent of Hellos. "Hello?" I tried. "Hello? Hello?!"

"Hello," said a mechanical voice behind me. I whired around and saw
