This is a sentence written in the alphabet that I made up when I was 14 years old.

I found the Rosetta Stone to said alphabet yesterday, when digging through an old box of journals.

If I remember correctly, I decided to make up a new alphabet because the existing one wasn't attractive enough. This alphabet was eventually abandoned, however, because I kept forgetting how to read it.

Hey, cool! I did the same thing with a few friends in middle school, except we called ours a code and did it for the express purpose of preventing others from knowing which boys we had crushes on and wrote about in our notes. I was (am) such a nerd. I knew you were a kindred spirit (that's code for "fellow nerd").

And are you going to tell us what it says, or just leave us on tenderhooks?

This says: "When I grow up, I hope they don't make me take Latin or Welsh."

I can't understand it. Something about a fish?
