As a quick aside, I want to personally apologize to Bobby Cooney for promising a vlog (has been asking for one for about a year) - I am sorry to disappoint. I tried it, and I am just not a good video blogger! I say "um" too much, and I make stupid comments that I can't edit out because I am inept at video editing/don't feel like video editing! My condolences, Bob, I will write a poem for ya.
With spring semester starting at La Salle (already pretty much underway), it has been bizarre. I know Danny can also attest to this - I feel out of place not being at La Salle, and even when I am here, my ID not working and my lack of classes (although nice) reminds me that I do not really belong here right now. Also, my depressingly empty dorm that I sleep in is a constant reminder, even if the kind miss (Lisa AKA Elise) who sleeps in the bed next to mine tells me otherwise. My lack of a bedside table is frightening when I wake up, and as much as I love hanging around La Salle, it is just a tad too sad (rhymes) for me. However, some things at La Salle never change - such as my amazing friends and the welcoming community. For example, last night I hung out with my fellow PAL (Police Athletic League) coordinators, Chuck and Brianna, and had one of the last Starbucks get-togethers with Elise and Ben(Jamin), which I treasured more than they know. Falling asleep with one of Elise's African history books in my hands, I was again reminded of my amazing life that I am leaving behind. I am sad to leave because of how good I have it! At least it's a happy thing that I am not GLAD to leave! Right? Well, it'd sure make it a lot easier.
Currently in Starbucks - asked the barista for a selfie, but she wasn't cooperating.
