Well, it’s my first day here. It isn’t as bad as I expected. I love feeling free, but I can’t help but miss my parents. I hope they’re safe. It’s so hard being away from home. I miss everyone back there so much. I’ve made a couple of friends, but I wouldn’t say i’m very popular here.
All the other kids are getting drunk and then there’s me. I wish I wasn’t so sheltered back home. I’ve never had alcohol in my life. I guess it’s time to try it.
but I don’t know if i’m ready.

It seems like I made a friend. I’m about to go get a tour of the campus.
I never thought I would miss my parents this much. I didn’t realize how much they did for me back at home. I hope they’re safe.
All this talk about drinking makes me nervous. I feel like i’m ready, but I don’t want to let my parents down. I don’t want to live with the guilt. I know it makes me sound lame, but it’s not worth it.
All that can be expressed..
