Dear diary,

I don’t use my pipe for violence like everyone thinks I do. I use it for pushing my fan around without turning it on. I use it for moving decorations during a holiday. Most importantly, I put a lantern on it when I check on my big and little sister at night. I’m not evil. It just seems that way.

Dear diary,

Despite my attempts to make friends with everyone else, they all remain afraid of me. What am I doing wrong? Why is everyone scared? Am I really that threatening of a nation? I just don’t want to be alone anymore.

Dear diary,

I can’t help but wonder if behind Russia’s creepy exterior is a nice person. I’ve always wanted to give him a chance, but I also don’t want to be made fun of by the other countries. Maybe I’ve been reading too much of Japan’s stories, but I kind of want to be the person to solve the mystery that he is. Maybe he is hurting on the inside? I don’t know what to do. If I ignore the feeling of wanting to get to know him, I feel like I will regret it. If only you could talk, diary.
