    And It Was Interesting

    Hehe. It's almost over, though. Fifteen days, and I'll be legal. The good news was, being in college means my parents no longer have any real influence over what I do, which is nice. Otherwise I woulda had to wait another year for that freedom. The sucky part is, you get a...

    My First Semester...

    This is my first semester of college. I'm not a huge fan of it so far, I guess cuz I am too attached to home and stuff. I miss my parents a lot, and my pets, and my home church, and my friends, and everything. College is just something I will have to live through a few years of...
