Only a week until I go home and I can get back into the regular pattern of posting and visiting. Until then, I'm going to keep up with my pattern of just posting whenever I get the chance.
Everyone's been taking Patrick's (a boy at my school) death pretty differently. A lot of people are indifferent. A lot of people seem indifferent but are obviously really sad. Others are really emotional about the whole thing. I was really emotional at first, but I've realized you can't be sad forever and I should try to be strong for those who need me.
My roommate's taking it pretty hard. She didn't know him, but she went to his wake yesterday to support a friend who was going and pay her respects. When she came back, she was pretty hysterical. I think the shock of seeing his family was pretty intense. I couldn't really get myself to comfort her the way everyone else was. I knew that if I tried hugging her and telling her "it'd be okay", I would just turn into a crying mess.
She was really shaken last night so I stayed up with her. We talked and I let her sleep in my bed. I kept on talking to her about anything I could think of until she fell asleep. I only got 3 hours of sleep and have to survive classes until 6 p.m. but it's okay. The weekend's coming so I'll be able to make it.
I'm trying not to only think of what happened. I can't stop living and just mourn.
We finally got the first snow of New Hampshire. We woke up and looked out the window and it was completely white. So much fun.
P.S. For some reason MyOtaku won't let me leave comments if someone else hasn't commented before me. I tried to comment on people's pages but since I was the first one, it just said "No comments available" and there wasn't one of those boxes to type your comments in. It's kinda strange. I hope I figure it out eventually. Laters again.
