I just got this really good idea. I'm not quite sure how far I'll go with it, but if people like it, I'll keep writing.

Dear Diary,

Mommy's writing this for me because I can't write yet. She says that it is a good idea to keep a diary and write down anything important that happens to me. So today I heard that we were going on a hike. It's going to be so much fun! I can't wait!

Dear Diary,

I just remembered that I owned a diary. I will try to write more often now that I can read and write. Today I climbed a mountain! Well, it was more like a large hill. But it was a lot of fun and I love climbing! It's the best. I want to climb a mountain some day!

Dear Diary,

Today I tried to do the Triple Tiger Sashay. I failed and ended up flat on my face in front of a whole lot of people. I feel like I let my Dad down. I was humiliated and Dad is very disappointed in me. I don't like dancing, but it makes Dad happy. Mom says that Dad shouldn't be so hard on me, but he doesn't listen. I will have to try harder next time.

Dear Diary,

I'm scared. Mom is in the hospital with cancer. Dad says she'll get better, but I don't believe him. I know that I have to be strong, to be a man, but seeing Mom so weak scares me. I have decided to keep this diary with me at all times. After all, I don't want Dad seeing this. I don't want him to think that I'm weak.

Dear Diary,

Mom died last week. She told me to be strong for her, but I cried at her funeral. Dad's barely around anymore, always singing and dancing. How can he be happy at a time like this?! Mom is dead!

Dad enrolled me at some stupid performing arts academy. I'm only going because I know Mom would want me to listen to Dad. I'll be leaving tomorrow, but I'm going to continue to write like Mom had told me to do.

I'll be 13 in a few days, but why would anyone care? I wonder if my Dad will remember my birthday? Mom never forgot, but she is no longer here to remind him…

Dear Diary,

I can't take it anymore! I don't think that I can spend one more day here. So, I'm going to run away. I plan on climbing some mountains, and I'll live in a hotel or something. I'll continue telling Dad that I'm still here, but I feel bad lying to him. But if I don't, he won't be happy. Tonight, I'll make my escape.

Dear Diary,

Today was awesome! I managed to climb Mount Hilma today. I've become quite a good mountain climber, and I barely need any gear. In my spare time I've been working out at gyms and getting fit. Tomorrow I plan to climb the biggest mountain in Ninjago. I've got the strangest feeling though. I think that something big is going to happen soon. Maybe, if I'm lucky, someone might notice me and see how good I am. You never know.

Let me know what you guys think. Should I continue? Please don't forget to review.
