Mariah was right. It had to end. But not for the reason I expected.

Being at home just doesn't feel right. I don't know if that is because at the end of each semester the people who matter most to me are going back to their real lives in Europe, because my family life sucks, or just because I am changing. I want more than the life I had here.

And on Thursday I said goodbye to a certain Dutchman, who I will never see again in all of my days, with the parting words "Have a nice life, and if I am ever in the Netherlands, I will facebook you."

I don't think I have gotten any classier since high school . . .

So there is this Dutch boy. And we will see where it goes.

How is it that them moment I leave high school, everything falls into place? I know that I am the same person, but I have never felt better about myself in my life. These are good times.

On a scale from one to ten, I adore my life right now.

Whoever said I should not befriend a swarm of Communist Russians needs to be slapped.

But not by me . . . I am a pacifist.

I feel so at home in my dorm room, and really amazingly comfortable with my roommates. And I get to teach this little Korean girl English. Yesterday, I taught her how to say "You are my only friend, Allie."

I have been talking to this random guy Keith lately, but I'd rather do it online, because in person I can only stare at his back hair.

My Russian teacher blinks rapidly when you get the genders wrong.

My Spanish teacher is a babe.

All in all, I am quite pleased with college.

Today I ate dinner with five people who did not speak the same language as I did. Today I befriended a homosexual Iranian named Mohummad. Today I finally told my Russian teacher that I need extra help. Today I bought a poster of Gandhi and draped it over my desk to remind me to be a better person. Today I saw Alex Rainey, Will Mullin and Chelsea Evans, just like I have every day I have been at college. Is my life really any different?

I don't know how to feel about UNH yet. It is where I have spent my whole life. It's where I have spent time with my friends. It is where most of my memories are from. And I think that I am afraid of replacing my old memories with new ones. I went to Portsmouth with some girls yesterday, and we were walking down towards The Toast when one of them goes "That is such a sketchy resturant," and kept walking. It is so weird to have the places that I have cherished, the town that I was raised in demolished with perspective. I don't want to put myself out there like that.

I am making friends. I am getting along with my roommates. I am doing well in my classes. I am likng my job. But I still feel lonely. I still feel empty. And I still miss my home.
