Every time I come back to Hagerstown...I kind of realize there's not much left for me here. Besides family and a very few select people, of course. I guess I should have expected that, with going away to college and all. But for some reason, I still hold to some small hope that I can reforge the friendships that I'd LIKE to reforge, rather than sit around and hope it will happen itself. But I am so bad at stuff like that, and it just feels so awkward. I miss many people I used to hang out with. I know it makes no sense...but I still miss them.

I know only a phone call separates me from some people, but it feels more than that to me for some reason. And that barrier has never been easy for me to breach. Bah.

Yeah. So I was extremely on edge today because my dog, Ketchup, has not been doing so hot for the past few weeks. Seeing as he is 14 years old, my mom and dad decided to take him to the vet today to see if there is anything they could do for him - he hadn't been eating, drinking, or going to the bathroom at all recently and they were obviously concerned. They told me if the vet decided there was nothing they could do, they were just going to put him down tonight.

Well, as luck would have it, he has some sort of injury near his leg or something that was hurting him and was probably the reason he stopped eating/drinking, and the vet just put him on painkillers and some appetite stimulants to help him out. They also said that his heart and lungs were strong, so...I guess he has a second chance at this point. Still...I do not want to get my hopes up too much...I was beside myself this afternoon after my mom told me what the options were. I love that damn dog so much, it's pathetic. He's been there through it all, and I've had him for as long as I can remember. My mom said that if he hasn't started eating and drinking by Friday, we should probably put him down anyway, which is fair because he'd starve to death from that anyway...gahh, this is just so difficult. I knew I would have to deal with this eventually, but shit, right after those deaths in my family it's like both cruel fate and mortality are hitting me over the head with a crowbar. My dad was apparently beside himself, too, going home early to see him and stuff. Wow, SO strange to hear about my dad acting this way...but considering the circumstances...Eh, well, whatever happens, I've gotten it all out of my system and I'm ready to say goodbye if need be. Just wish I could be there for him, or see him one last time if this truly is the end. Hang in there, little guy...

It turns out that things weren't as bad as I thought they were. Brittany did go home, and her condition is still the same, but I think she will be alright. She will have to make some changes to her life for sure, but she's going to make it. Tracy and I are okay. Lorin was just so down about it, saying that the disease is fatal and all of this. Eh, she always struck me as a fatalistic one anyway, with her doom and gloom attitude. I still like her, but God. She did not need to make Brittany feel worse than she already must have felt at the time...

So yeah, Tra and I have been in Italy since Nov. 16th. We took a really fun trip to Normandy with Lorin on the 15th to see Omaha Beach, Pont du Hoc, and a few other sites connected to World War II. That was cool, I took pictures that hopefully will make their way onto the internet soon enough. Then the next day, Tracy and I caught a flight to Rome, and stayed there for a few days. Saw a lot of great sites, but I am honestly traveled out. I've wanted to come home for the past few weeks, to tell the truth, and I don't meant that to sound like I haven't had a good time on this trip or anything, or that I'm taking my travel time for granted. I've just been living out of a suitcase for three months and I'm just...exhausted, and stressed, and I just want to be back among family and friends. I hate having to line up these trains and I hate having to worry about getting from place to place. Some world traveler I am. And now for some reason this homesickness is making me think about Hagerstown and the people I miss, especially friends I have lost contact with for some reason or other. Some examples...I don't even know if they will read this or if anyone will care, but whatever, I'm nostalgic right now and I feel like crap, and typing to a damn journal is the only way to vent nowadays.

Read more...Collapse )
But yeah, those are the main people I miss at the moment. That's enough emo for this entry.

Feeling a bit better right now, since Sophie has been talking to me through the First Class chat and told me that my love Dr. Cass had his baby on Tuesday! It's a boy, named Charles August. Awww, awesome for him, I bet the baby's adorable. Too bad I will not get to see that man when I get back to campus, unless I "accidentally" stop by his office or something. Hmm. We'll see. First and foremost, I have to see Sophie and Christina. I have missed them a lot, and can't wait to share an apartment with them and Tracy.

Home in about 11 days. As bad as it sounds now, I am getting pretty excited for that flight from Atlanta to BWI...see you people soon.

A story from my dad. [Aug. 19th, 2008|11:20 am]

And now, an old gem that I dug out from long ago...a "recap" that my dad wrote of the trouble we went through when our luggage got lost in Spain over two years ago. He sent this to the people who handled our bags at Iberia Airlines or something, haha. This gave me a good laugh, so I don't know, I thought I'd share it.

Chaos.Collapse )

Spencer's going to teach me how to cook on Thursday night. This shall be exciting, or traumatizing. Don't know which yet. We're going to make stuff from scratch. We will see how the macaroni and cheese and chicken turn out...

And thus, a new chapter in my life begins...

Hmm. I am not crazy about these recent moods I have been getting into lately, where I doubt my own intelligence. It usually happens whenever I confront Mark at the Center. It happened today, in fact, and I KNOW the people there can't possibly have anything against me...maybe it is like I said, and it's just the way they act...it's nothing personal...but yeah.

I'm just paranoid...

I have a lot more work to do, even though my body is exhausted from this week. My mind is still going haywire though, going over little things that I shouldn't worry about and making me overanalyze things too much. I start to think about my friends changing, and myself changing, and how I feel about all of that...sometimes it makes me happy, and sometimes it makes me a bit depressed. I don't really feel like getting into the reasons why in this journal, but let's just say that sometimes I feel that I can't even relate to people who I consider to be my best friends, at least in certain situations. I still love them all, but college changes things...meeting new people changes things. Things that used to really excite me hold little/no interest for me anymore, and I feel like I'm starting to "mature" in some respects. But what does that really mean? I guess I'm still the same person, but I find myself wanting to read more, wanting to learn as much as I can, wanting to get focused with my career, and not minding work too much. I still have a good time. I am just...well. I'm feeling that "change" that I've been expecting to feel for the past five years, I guess. It's kicking in...

Hopefully milling over all of this will help me fall asleep. Goodnight.
