A few days ago, Rowe was reunited with his epic diary from 2007, which was dedicated to SpongeBob from the Nickelodeon television show SpongeBob SquarePants.

Rowe told BuzzFeed that he turned "bright red" when he re-read the diary.

The diary was actually discovered by his 11-year-old brother Ted, whose initial reaction to it was: "Jack, what the fuck!" Rowe said: "He thinks it's so odd."

Rowe said SpongeBob "was a very big part of [his] life" and he used to watch the show every day after school.

"I still watch it from time to time. Sometimes my mom changes my bedsheets to my old SpongeBob bedsheets," he confessed.

Some of Rowe's diary entries explain his deep love for the cartoon. "I wish I was yellow like you and have holes in my body," 9-year-old Rowe wrote.

He also asked SpongeBob why Squidward was moody AF.

"I would like to see him [Squidward] nice to you and Pat but I think that will never ever happen," he predicted.

Rowe wrote about his friends Alan and Fiona, who were also were massive fans of SpongeBob. "We used to fight about who loved [SpongeBob] more," he said. "Fiona had a Sandy Cheeks diary. How's that for #SquadGoals?"

Rowe said he spoke to Fiona about his diary yesterday, which she said is "the funniest thing ever."

"She said she remembers it so well, she used to write to her diary in the toilet so her family wouldn't see," Rowe explained.

Rowe thought his diary was so funny, he decided to share it on Twitter. He said he is "shocked" with the amount of attention his tweet is getting.


Rowe said some of the replies to his tweet have been hilarious.
