So things haven't been going the greatest. I went to the hair shop before I left for Chicago to get my eyebrows waxed and heard that my good friend Kyle was having some complications from a surgery he had in May. Well, Kyle passed away Saturday due to these complications and more complications that arose from them. Well, for those of you who don't know who Kyle is, he was a good friend of mine my freshman year of high school and then last year he lived 3 doors down in the apartment complex. Him, Andy and I hung out a few times and I went over there for a Halloween party. He helped with my car a few times too. Anyways, I've been having a hard time dealing with it b/c he was 1) so young 2) pretty healthy, and 3) such a nice man. Anyways, despite all of that going on things are looking up in class. I got a B on the last exam which brought my grade up significantly. Things are still going great with Mark even though we haven't been spending as much time together as we have been and that's mostly b/c things are work are also looking up. I got 20 hours this week which was pretty darn exciting. I think with my check I'm gonna save half and use the other half so mark and I can get away for a night. Well, that's about all that's going on right now. I leave for school in 16 days and I'm not looking forward to it at all. I'm gonna miss my sistas and 'rents and Mark, Melinda and Trev. Anywho, I gotta go do my hwk...Peace Yo!!!
