Dear Friend,

Thank God for headphones. Without headphones, I’d be tormented by the sounds of other people around not talking to me. I know that sounds strange, but it’s enfuriating how so many people can be in one place and no one hardly will even look at me. It’s a feeling that I used to know in high school, but I foolishly hoped it would wear off in college.

I’ve had so much work this weekend, yet so little motivation to get anything done. I feel so zoned out, and I feel like shit ti my core. I’m exhausted and I just want to sleep the days away. I don’t know how to shake this feeling.

I can’t wait until the next break.

Love Norman

Dear Friend,

Yesterday was such a good day. All my classes got cancelled, so I hopped into my truck and drove to my old high school. So many hugs, laughs, and some tears were exchanged. I missed these people so much, but I guess I just never realized they missed me. I also had the chance to give a second mixtape to my close group of friends. Friend, if you want the mixtape list, you should let me know. I know how much you love music, and I’d love to share with you.

After visiting my high school, I drove back to campus to give Anna a ride to the train station. I think she’s really pretty, the kind of pretty that deserves to be spoken of, but she hardly even talks herself, which makes it difficult to get to know her. But we’re both quiet, so we get along well.

Overall, Friday was the perfect day. Now my weekend is filled with drawings, paintings, and studying. I’ve certainly got my work cut out for me.

Love Norman
