Adjusting to the Dark is a journal entry by Samantha Greenbriar, dated October 29, 1994. It describes the events after the concert. Sam had already arranged with Lonnie to stay at a friend's house in the city after the concert, however she had not mentioned that she would be sharing a bed with Lonnie. Once the lights turned off, they moved closer together, and Lonnie admitted to Sam that she really liked her.

Transcript Edit

At Todd's brother's place after the show, there was only a futon to sleep on, so Lonnie and I shared it. The lights went out... I was turned toward her... my eyes started to adjust, and then I could see she was looking at me, too. In the dark, she smiled. My heart was beating so fast. I rolled over, I felt so... I don't know, nervous? After a minute she put her arm around me, and was so close, and whispered in my ear, "I really like you." I just nodded my head and I really hope she could tell. I really hope... that she meant what I think she did. I've felt like a shook-up can of soda ever since. I hope we have a chance to talk before I explode.
