October 2, 1989

Sometimes I dream about being this big, famous reporter who gets to interview all these famous people and rock stars and be on TV and tell them all the news about the stars. And write for a big time magazine in New York or California.

I like to dream about owning my own house and having a good husband and kids. I know this doesn't seem like a very big accomplishment but that's what I dream about. I want to be a nice mom but not so nice as to let my kids get away with anything and be spoiled. I know I can achieve this if I try.
