This quarter I’ve been getting SO MUCH reading and other homework. Like overload. It’s kind of overwhelming and it keeps me from reading on my free time. :/ And I’m reading a great book about North Korea too. I feel like my life consists of homework, video games, and work. Haha, with occasionally hanging out with friends.
I feel like part of it is my fault because I haven’t been making much of an effort to hang out. I’ve had a lot of people telling me I should meet up with them for lunch soon because they miss me and I miss them too. I do see them around campus sometimes on the way to classes. I’m just always worried about homework and stuff… Since this week is chaotic, I promise to see as many people as I can next week. I even have a chart of everyones’ schedules. It may be kind of hard because midterms are coming up… but oh well! I miss Katherine, Sok, Ternessa, Mansour, Lee, Alex, Shiyue, Stefano, Kevin, Corrine, Patrick, Airi… even Connor haha, and all the others. And I need to hang out more with my new friends like Dallas.
I especially miss Mansour though. My homeboy. My Saudi. The best college buddy you could ask for. Someone you know is always hungry and craving coffee. Someone who always has cool stories about their home country. I find myself talking about him all the time, and no it’s not a crush. Even if I did it would just be WAY too complicated because of Saudi traditions and whatnot. I wouldn’t really mind going on a date with him once, but I dunno, he’s more of a cuddly friend that I can talk to. I’m just so happy around the guy, he gives off this radiant aura of fun and… sunshine haha. He can be a drama queen too and kind of arrogant sometimes, but I like that about him. Screw all those Islamophobes, if they ever took the time to meet him they would realize he’s one of the greatest people ever.
So yeah… really missing all my friends. I’m going to make a promise to myself to work as hard as I can to get stuff out of the way so I can hang out with more people.
