Journal Entry – 11.17.1996

Well It’s about time I started writing again huh.   School is going well and I am enjoying it immensely.  I am lifting everyday except on weekends with this girl named Taesen.  She is very good looking and sweet.  However she has a boyfriend but she is fun to be around because we always get into “discussions”.. … We argue about everything and never have a dull moment.  I still miss Nyla to an extent.  She is so beautiful and sweet.  However she dropped me like a bad habit and doesn’t call or talk to me anymore.  Oh well your bound to get shit on some time or another in this life huh……. I am kind of disappointed that none of my friends will be coming home for the whole winter break.  Everyone has an apartment now and it’s just not profitable to come home..  I miss the nights at Nichol’s and Clifton’s playing Presidents and Assholes and finishing case after case.  All my friends from HS are doing their own thing now and I hardly ever see any of them anymore.  Ryan is always at work or with Jen.  Glenda is always working, at school or with John.   I really haven’t made too many guy friends while I have been up here but I am still able to find a party every weekend.  But it’s just not the same……..  I miss having coffee with Cliff and talking about everything under the sun.   I dunno I dunno.   Crazy stuff man.   My roommate leaves every weekend to see his girlfriend.   This weekend they were supposed to come here but stood me up and Jenny Morris was supposed to come visit me on Friday and she stood me up also so I ended up going to a party by myself and had a pretty good time.  I had to work Saturday and didn’t feel like going out afterwards.  I went to church today then did a little homework and then went home.  Now I am back and should get started since I have a Econ midterm on Wednesday……..well I’m outta here…

*Note 2016 – The coffee house that Taesen and I would study at was Arabica Coffee house at 1652 Neil Avenue.  Great spot for studying and I’m sad to learn it is no longer there.
