How Odd A Feeling


How odd a feeling this is;
almost nothing
But yet it lays deep within
my chest and
gently pushes
itself out to
each fingertip.

How odd a feeling is this
that leaves me
wondering and wanting.
That leaves a
Warmth
throughout me.

How odd a feeling is this
that causes my
world to shake
and the waters to flood.

How odd a feeling is this
that it burns deep
in my soul
so deep that it places
fire upon my lips,
and laughter in my eyes.

How odd a feeling is this
that I do not know
any word to describe
it other
than
...love.

Rikki Knies


Starting Over


Starting over means the possibility of love is once again in the air. It gives you a chance to meet someone new; a chance to develop a crush; a chance to get that tingly feeling that runs through your body when you kiss someone that you like for the first time; a chance to get nervous before the first phone call, the first date or the first kiss; a chance to look in the person's direction and wonder if he or she is looking in yours; a chance to exchange glances, smiles, names or phone numbers; a chance to notice his or her smell or touch. But, most of all, starting over gives you a chance to get back in the game! Oh yeah, the chase is on!

Whatever you do, don't close your heart to others. I've done this for most of my life and am just now learning how to let people in. Ironically, in trying to keep myself from getting hurt, I ended up depriving myself of things that I really needed and wanted. Open your heart!

Format: Paperback
As I went through the book and filled it out, it made me realize a lot of triumph and tourmoil I have gone through in my teenage years. Even though I am only seventeen, I have been through a lot.
When I look back at everything I have written, I realize so many things I have learned from my relationships, from first crushes to first loves. I also learned the difference between the two. Falling in love is a wonderful experience for some, but for me, it was more than that. It was a learning experience. What I thought was love then, I do not consider love now. I first thought it was when you like someone a lot and have a lot of feelings for the person. You want to spend most of your time with them. After looking back on everything I wrote, I realized, I had not had my first love yet. Love is when you will do anything and everything for that person. When you are in love, it is overwhelming. It makes you feel like a brand new person.
I finally came to relaize what love really is when I met my current boyfriend. We have not been together long, but we have been together long enough to realize that my feelings for him go far beyond liking him a lot. He has got all of the qualities that I have ever looked for in a guy. He treats me right, with love and respect. If you truly love someone, you respect them. Not just as a person, but as a whole.
I am glad I purchased this book and completed it. I have learned a lot, and if I would have never bought this book, I probably would have never made a journal of my own to look back on as I get older. This is a great book, and I recommend it to all teenagers. It taught me a lesson or two about relationships. I think it could teach everyone.

This book is so much more than a journal. I have the Chicken Soup Teen Journal also and this is just as good , if not better. Instead of just a bunch of blank questions, there are stories and poems too. The book opens up with a letter to Dear Boy and one to Dear Girl. These are so great. After I read those I knew I would love the journal.Then there are poems and quotes along with really good questions. I am about half way through with filling mine out and I'm sad becasue I don't want to finsih it. I also love Colin's pages. He is a guy from the Real World and he wrote some stuff in the journal. I really enjoyed reading a guys opinion. I still need to get my best friend to fill in the best friend pages but I am waiting because I am giving her a copy for Christmas. I am going to fill in the best friend pages before I give it to her. I think this makes a perfect Christams present. The Teen Love book is good ,too.

My mom bought me both books at some book signing thing and when she gave them to me I was like...thanks. I started reading the book Teen Love first and I couldn't put it down. The real shocker though was the journal. This was as good as the book. It had so many great things in it. Poetry and quotes and something called Colin's pages which are pages with a guys opinion. I don't know hinm from TV but my friends do..anyways it was good ,too. The two books were great and I was just surpised that something my mom bought me was so good.

Kimberly Kirberger is the most brillant author of todays youth. When i purchased this journal i couldnt stop writing down my thoughts. Colin from the real world 8 really makes the journal complete on his thoughts. I am a fan of Mrs Kirberger and i want to thank her for saving me in every way possible. Through heart and soul, i think every one will agree with me on this journal by saying it was a item in which we all will cherish.
