Living in a Box: Day 1  by Nigel-Valentine
Day 1.

Dear journal. I have been offered a strange challenge and have left behind my family. I am now trying to show the world how wonderful my box is because well...my friend has an amazing box that she's living in. Hers is even big enough for a few people! I hope I can invite friends to mine one day.

I set my box up last night after hearing about hers. It's quite warm in the early Spring. There's no air conditioner though...nor electricity...water...; well I guess I can't say that there's no water. It's always raining a little in my Mind.

Journal, you'll never believe what happened to me today! I was sitting in my box minding my own business, right!? Well, it starts getting kinda dark and then I hear these footsteps. This strange man was standing over my box!! All I thought was, "...My box..." Ya know what he did next!? He tried to take my box!!!

I hopped out hollerin like a crow at sunrise. I said, "Dude, this is my box! Get your own." He just kept trying to yank the box outta my hands; said it wasn't sanitary to live in. I said he was just jealous and then fell in a puddle as I yanked it out of his hands. My friend and her friends giggled from the more elaborate box across the way. I said, "Hey, they're livin in a box to ya know!?" He just looked and said, "Yes, but their box is bigger." Then he told me he'd be back to settle all this arguing later and he'd bring friends. I just said I'd bring friends too..., but then I remembered...my friends all had their own boxes to worry about. I mean, what if a creep like that came while they were gone and took THEIR BOX!?

After looking at my box though, I did come to a conclusion... It was probably only big enough to fit two and a HALF people. But no worries. You've heard of Duplexes right? Well one day, if i'm as lucky as my friend, I'll have a Dubox!

Well, I don't think he's coming back, and i'm getting sleepy. I'll talk to you tomorrow journal, good night. Oh, would ya look at that? I have a new friend. A dog just walked in, so cute. I have no blanket or anything in here...so maybe it'll keep me warm for the night. My parents wouldn't let me bring MY animals with me. Thought my box idea was just silly and reckless.

I wonder what fun things will happen tomorrow in my fun little box. 'Night Journal.
