How accurate was your high school planner?

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will reportedly provide planners he kept during the summer of 1982 to counter accusations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that he and a friend assaulted her at a party. Kavanaugh and his team claim the planners show no parties that match Blasey Ford's account of the incident. Many were quick to point out though, that planners kept by teenage boys are unlikely to be incredibly accurate documents. Did your high school planner include every single activity you took part in?

Kavanaugh says he kept detailed accounts of every event he took part in, and no parties exist that fit the description Blasey Ford has shared. Per The New York Times:

The calendar pages are one-month pages with each day in a small box. Unusual for a teenager, Judge Kavanaugh seemed to keep track of his days even during summer vacation. The pages show typical teenage activities from the era, including “beach week” after the end of the school year and nights at the theater to see “Grease II,” “Rocky III” and “Poltergeist” with friends.
Judge Kavanaugh was gone many weekends with his parents in St. Michaels, Md., and one weekend in Connecticut with his grandmother, according to the calendars. He listed an interview for Yale University, where he would eventually enroll, and the start of football camp in August, when he stayed in the dorms at Georgetown Prep. He also played summer league basketball.
His friend, Mr. Judge, is mentioned, but the others from that night are not. “Go to Judge’s,” he wrote in July 28. A few parties are listed and with them the names of several friends he apparently went with.

Extensive contemporaneous accounts exist about Kavanaugh's partying. Robert Mackey from The Intercept noted that the planners don't include any indication of Kavanaugh's drinking, and therefore cannot be considered a "full record."

Richard Armande Mills, a conservative political commentator, noted that some teens are simply more high achieving than others.

Some Kavanaugh supporters showed their own well-organized teenage planners to prove it is possible to have a full account of one's activities.

Yet, the planners may turn out to be insubstantial, as more women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Per The Montgomery County Sentinel

While investigators weren’t specific and spoke on background, they said they are looking at allegations against Kavanaugh during his senior year in high school after an anonymous witness came forward this weekend.
This would potentially bring the number to four women accusing Kavanaugh of wrongdoing and comes after Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale college student, stepped forward this weekend to accuse Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her in college, and after attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted out a message saying he represents a woman with “credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.”
