Her heart throbs Chuck is back in the scene at this time, along with another fellow Gregg. She notes that Valentines Day "wasn't so great. Mom had been drinking when I got home". Terri mentions her mother quite often and worries about her emotional state. She gets elected to student council. 1975 is a momentous year for Terri where love issues become more clear and deep. She speaks of Brad often and there is talk of being serious, marriage, i.e. she's cooking dinner and he's very affectionate noting on August 8th 1975 with Brad saying "it's just lie being married". She sees movie on August 13th 1975, "Once Is Not Enough" - a film from a book by Jacqueline Susann who wrote "The Valley Of The Dolls". Terry is attending college in September 1975 while Brad's working. On December 6th 1975, the first mention of "making love" with Terri noting "we've never laughed so hard… he couldn't get it in." The diary entries ends on December 28th, 1975 with her saying that Brad "said he loved me, but he had to get rid of his doubts before he married me…this is the first time in 77 days I haven't seen Brad. I love him and miss him so much." She also notes all family members and friends listed in diaries with birthdates. A super job as a diarist even though sporadic.
