Noisy Neighbors  
Okay, so I was in the computer lab until midnight last night. It was nice to be able to sit comfortably and talk to people, especially Erdman. Once I was done I went upstairs to my room to find our bathmates all taking showers, blasting music, and singing. This carried on till about one or so in the morning. Then I spent half the night crying and then other half waking up every hour or so. It was lots of fun.

Well, I've only got two classes today, Japanese and Freshman Studies. They should go okay except that I think the store gave me the wrong books for Japanese. They certainly don't start on chapter one.

So I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. While there are still many conclusions I am waiting for, I have come to one; I think I have become way to dependent on my friends. I've realized this as I sit here and hold conversations with them on aim while they are away or how often I e-mail them all. So I'm sorry for that, and hopefully I'll adjust soon and find some friends down here.

never good when you pull out the blank icon... sounds like not a nice suprise to come home to. having trouble sleeping again? anything i can help with?

the balance with friends and dependence is tricky. definitely you'll make some friends there and keep your friends here. we can still have conversations. it's just rough adjusting. and summer will come soon enough, and you'll miss your pitt friends.

for me, it was rough at first, but once you get into routine and find a group of friends things get easier and time flies.

don't need to be sorry at all. i like lots of talking, and i'd think others would too. friends in both places are good.

miss you.

Oh, so you've picked up on my icon moods eh? Yes, when I put up the blank icon I am in a bad/sad mood. Hopefully my sleeping troubles were only for last night. I just had a lot on my mind after an intense conversation with Erdman.

You see, the thing is, I have no exclusive Pitt friends yet. I'm hoping once I get to church and the christian groups and whatnot I can find someone to talk to and perhaps confide in. And yes, it's rough right now and I know I'll be okay, just having a really really bad day and it hasn't gotten any better.

Miss you as you already know.

And don't worry. This is all stuff I have to work out on my own. There's really no help you can give. Thanks though.

Hey, Hallie, how are you doing? Don't worry about becoming too dependent on your friends, I think we all might be like that (at least I am! :-)) Have a good day!

Hey Kristin. Glad you finally found my journal. I'm doing pretty good down here, I'm just having a royal bad day. Keep in touch!

I found your journal a while ago. Just been too lazy to write comments!

Darn laziness. Must find a way to get rid of it. So how is IUP for you? I'm too lazy to read your journal right now, lol.

Hey huh, don't worry about making friends down there. You can always ask Bryan for some advice; he's good at that. I'm sure you'll make friends. It's okay to miss your friends, too. I'm glad you are figuring things out, though. That is good. Maybe you had to figure that out first before you could make friends at Pitt. Good luck and I hope you are well.

Re: Outcast
I am well. I was just having a bad day. I have to ask, why the outcast subject? I don't want you to keep feeling left out because I love you too and miss you.

kinda insensive comment, but hey, i read it. Love ya Hallie. Good to talk to you, even if you set me in a laughing fit. Here's the comment: How do you do the icon things?
Wotcher?koiuta on August 31st, 2004 05:14 pm (UTC)
You mean my big user icons? You have to find some online, save them (I have TONS) and then upload them by clicking on manage user pictures. Have fun and thanks for the call. It was great to talk to you! Miss you.

don't forget about your friends that are already down here. if we get a group together it is easier to meet new people. trust me i know all about that. it takes a while to adjust but once you do i know that you'll do fine. just trust that it will all turn out in the end.

also don't forget about your roomie. she seems like a nice person and could be the person who helps you make friends. also don't forget to call me, i'm more than glad to do anything with you. so if you don't want to do something alone give me a call, 8-4886.

hope to see you soon and keep your head up
