I got a lot of laughter and compliments from Antigone tonight. Everyone said I stole the show and took all the attention.
Afterwards, when I came back to my Residence Hall and was hanging out with Dan, Jeff, Vince, and Mike, Jeff got a phone call. He came back to us with tears in his eyes. His best friend’s mom had died in her sleep, totally unexpected. She was like Jeff’s second mom.
I spent some time with him. We listened to some music and talked. He will go home this weekend. He will be okay.
You know, I can see things changing. Every day things grow more and more different and distant from where I came.
October is almost here.
1996 is almost here.
But that is life.
