My daily routine consisted of going to school, then after school Guy would usually come over to our house. Sometimes some of my girl friends would come over, too. Often, I'd go to the drugstore fountain with a group of kids, Guy was usually tagging along behind me.
About twice a month, I would go to the All Hands Dance as a USO girl. I loved dancing and I usually danced every dance. I met many handsome guys but wasn't dating any of them at this time. I just went to the dances to dance and have fun. I succeeded at my goal.
Once in awhile I would go on a date but it would always be with a group or a double date. I chose not to be exclusive during this time.
I read a lot of classical books during this time. I enjoyed English Literature and spent many evenings with my nose buried in a book.
I continued to go to the movies two or three times a week and babysitting was still the way I earned my spending money. When I did get money, I would go to Memphis on the bus and shop for new clothes. My wardrobe was growing by leaps and bounds.
