Xander’s College Life Chapter 8

Returning from Break—Re-inspired as usual!

AH hah! Just got back from the most amazing break ever! So much fun being home, seeing friends, and sooo many close friends. Newell’s organized party was awesome (except I got gypped of my $10). It was a long time since I’ve been in a room with so many people that all knew each other. After college, high school seems like family, more hugs and cheers than ever since graduation!

With regards to the various parties afterwards—from nostalgic, to hilarious, to relaxing, to thanksgiving and worship—each fulfilled some need, and everywhere, I felt reconnected with those I’d been away from for so long. All my thanks to everyone at school, Fellowship, Capt. Kirk’s place, CCMC bros and sisses, and of course all other people that I’d call family.

And yeah… I didn’t get to see, engage in conversation with, share a reflecting moment with all the people I wanted to, but… I suppose that’s just life. Everyone seemed to be doing well, those depressed were happier, and those stressed with college apps—lol—my experience says it all turns out okay in the end, reject or acceptance—still… I wish I could somehow keep all those relationships strong, and alive, and moving…

I went through some of my hardest times in high school, yet the entire experience is one that I am always going to be thankful for. And I’m thankful that I was never alone through it all…

Speaking of high school, I managed to get a picture of Jeremy Lee OFF GUARD!!! Where he’s actually showing his gut wrenching face… yet, when I copied the defiling picture to my brother’s computer, its hard drive promptly crashed, and proceeded to decay further and further. By the end of the day, the entire computer was down, and a clean install of Windows XP needed… and YET—it STILL was unstable as I left, and the HDD and 40 GB mysteriously vanished from virtual existence. Moral: Don’t take a picture of evilness and expect it to be tame. I lost all the party
photos too!! !

As amazing as the week was, I don’t think I’ve ever been more happy to be back at college (that is… until I found by homework and remembered the midterm tomorrow)—it truly feels like home now, and I don’t think I’ve been as energized or excited for school since the first week! Time to finish strong!

P.S. Can someone explain this to me?

I’ve been seeing it in some girls’ rooms, and t-shirts, and I’ve been scared to visit them since…

Ok, that’s it! out to dominate! Watching “Better Luck Tomorrow” in Asian American Literature!
