After I moved in, I kinda got settled and went into everyone's room to see how it looks. My room is a lil "off",lol, but I'm getting it situatuated ASAP. After that, I went to the supermarket with my friends because some of them live off campus and they had to buy food for their house. I went back to my dorm to chill for a bit and then I was out the door again. We went to my friend's house off campus. It was fun, chillin with my girls again. Us just acting like complete assholes and cracking jokes and whatnot,lol.
Now I'm back in my room,just chilling. I miss Kevin. I only spoke to him once and it was only for a couple of minutes because he had just got in from work. He said that he was going to call me back and I've been waiting for him to. I honestly feel that he fell asleep or forgot to call me, which I would be a bit upset at. I would like to talk to him because I miss him and just want to hear his voice.

Me, Robert, Jess & Alex. Jess was our superviser over the summer at the YRC.
We got back at 6:15pm and I chilled at Alex's house for a bit with her peoples. Kevin lives right down the block so I went to hang out with him at his house after. We watched "Perfect Stranger" and then I fell asleep. It was a loooooong day,lol. Kevin called me a cab and I went home. I went to sleep at 1:30am.
Saturday: Mellissa woke me up with her phone call. I was glad that she was because I had a lot of things to do that day. I got ready and left my house at 9:00am. I went to the bank to cash my check. After that, I went to go get my hair done but my hair dresser wasn't in. I met up with Alex and we went to find her sneakers. After that we went to meet up with Mellissa, who was getting her hair done. I got my hair done there as well. I got there at 1:00pm and left at 3:00pm. I took a trip to Manhattan to buy an outfit. I went to 34th St. and found nothing. then I went to SoHo, hoping that I would find something for the party. I remembered that Whitney worked in SoHo, so I went to visit her and lucky me, she was about to go on her lunch break. We went to grab something to eat at Wendy's and went to Necessary Objects to see if I could find something. I get a text from Alex saying that Milly said that we are on our cardigan flow, seeing as how Milly bought a cardigan from J. Crew and Alley was wearing her cardigan from Hellz Bellz. I already had a cardigan so I went home so I can get my stuff together to go to Milly's house. I got to Milly's house at 8:00pm and we were just chilling, waiting for people to come so the party could get started [Sidebar: Saturday was Milly's going away/birthday party. My ace boon bestie is going away to SUNY Morrisville this Thursday]. It got jumping around 11:30pm, or whenever the DJ started playing reggae,lol.

The party was over at 3:30 am. Me, London (Milly's friend from high school), Alex and Monica (Alex's little sister) slept over. We didn't go to bed until 5:15 am. We woke up at 10:30 and were just chilling. Alex & Monica were the first to leave. After that, I helped Mellissa pack her clothes for school. We all got ready to leave at 2:15pm. I went home to get ready for my date.
Sunday: I got home, took the quickest shower and got dressed. I had to pick Kevin up from work at 5:00pm, so I wanted to leave my house by 3:00pm so I can get my toes done before I go get him. I get out the shower and see I get a missed call from Kevin, but he was at home. He didn't go to work because he got home late from the party. I waited for him to come over so we can start our date. First, we went to Flatbush so I can get my toes done. We hopped on the bus to Atlantic to go to 42nd St. so we can have dinner at our favorite place: Olive Garden. Before we ate, we took a trip to Jamba Juice
I LOOOOOOVE Jamba Juice,lol. We (Kevin & I) were so happy when we got our Mango A Go Go,lol
Then we ate dinner. I love that chicken alfredo, hits the spot,lol. It was just real cool and relaxing. The waiter we had was a really cool guy, he took care of us and was very polite.
I wanted to take a pic. I was going for the preppy look. I think I succeded,lol
After dinner, we took the Q train to Coney Island. That was a long ride,lol. I fell asleep while we were listening to his iPod. We got off at West 8th and were just walking around on the boardwalk, talking and just enjoying each other's company. There's a pier farther down the boardwalk, where Kevin and I spent majority of our time there. We talked, told each other how much we loved each other and were just enjoying being around each other. We had a mini photoshoot
My baby, giving me a kiss. I love it,lol
My train leaves at 4:00 PM , so I've been chillin since I woke up. I do miss my family and can't wait to see them. I will miss Kevin and all my friends. I know I have to go back to school and get on my grind. I'm kind of ready and then I'm kind of not, but I just have to take everything one step at a time

I know I have neglected my blog, but I have been very busy. Between work and spending time with Kevin, by the time I get home, I just take a shower and go to sleep and do it all over again the next day.
My day was going good, until I started thinking about school. I love Howard, I really do, but the thing that brought me down was paying for school. Last school year, my mom accepted the parent PLUS loan, which she is still paying for to this day. This year, she's not accepting it again, which is understandable. I got awarded (from FAFSA) 2 grants, 1 loan and work study. Since my mom isn't accepting the PLUS loan, it leaves me short of my tuition. I do get child support from my father,so my mom and I decided that we would use that to pay off the rest of my tuition. The child support was my source of money during the 2007-2008 school year and since we're using that to pay off my tuition, I have to get a job. I don't mind getting a job at all. Lucky for me, I only have to save the child support from now (August) until January. I know that it's going to be a bit hard because I have to juggle school, work study, work, a relationship and my social life. I don't want to be negative and I am trying very hard to stay positive and I think that it's working. I'm just going to try to relax because I know that everything is going to work out in my favor.
Another thing I have to stay positive about is Kevin & I. Everything is going great, I am so in love as he is with me. We'll make a year on the 27th. It didn't even seem that long. It went by so quickly,lol. We went through some things, but nothing crucial and I am thankful for that. I am also thankful that we can deal with the things that we both do. I get sad when I think about going back to school because I'm leaving Kevin. I know it's not like we're breaking up, but I really enjoyed being with him these past 4 months. We're both going to be so busy with our lives but I know that we'll always have time for each other.
That's about it. I don't know what I'm going to do today, but I need to relax and stop being on edge about these situations. I may possibly go to Manhattan, purchase a Jamba Juice and go to Hudson River Park and just look out on the water with Kevin.
