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.
