Meanwhile, the statues are bleeding green.

So, it's been approximately 4.5 months since the last time i posted on here. I say to myself at least once a week that I should get on here and at least write something. Even if it's just a few words, just to let everybody that doesn't read my blog know that i'm still alive.

Well... I ended up in Boston at Emmanuel. I couldn't come to a decision for months until I finally just decided to go for it. I'm glad that I made the decision though. Aside from feeling occasionally home sick and not knowing whether i'm actually enjoying myself or not, it's a good thing that i've taken myself out of my comfort zone. This is not to say that i'll forget anyone or anything back at home. On a daily basis, i continue to think about Providence, Seekonk, and the people that i've grown so attached to over the past few years. It's only 45 minutes away from home but it feels like a world away.

Since being here, I've met some really great people. I've really enjoyed getting to know emily and sebastian so far, as well as a wide array of others. And of course, Courtney is here and she's my best friend. Sometimes I think that she doesn't actually know the extent of which i care about her. While others will unceasingly stab her in the back, i am always here for her. Anyway, it's fun just hanging out and having people around all the time.

On an academic note, my classes are going well. I'm currently taking Critical Inquiry, Persuasive Strategies, Design and Comp, and Intro to Digital Processes. So far, my classes have been harder and work load heavier than last year, but it's still early in the semester to really tell. I joined the Emmanuel's literary magazine, Bang! (this is the name of it, i am not a tool.) Opportunely, I was elected to be the media assistant on the exec board. I'm not quite sure what this will entitle, but i'm glad that i've gotten involved. We'll see how it all goes.

I'd still enjoy falling in love. That's all.

  1. You will never understand how much I admire you for getting out of here. I could never do it.

    I miss you so incredibly much.

    Bang! sounds intriguing, and I need to join something. I feel like I'm wasting away.

    You will find love. You are incredible.

    Come take a shit in my bathroom soon.
