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.

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.
