I am so emotionally drained. We got to see my mother yesterday and a little but today. All this change is happening to fast and Nichole, Mom, and I miss each other sooo much. We went to six flags yesterday with our mom, John, our step-sisters Emily (11) and Valerie (9), and our grandma. It was a lot of fun and I took a lot of pictures, which I might upload at a different time. I miss all my friends now that everyone is away at college. I start college in about a week, and I'm working at the B+N in Naperville... and I hate it, but oh well. I need the money. And btw my dorm is Peter and Paul Hall. Nuns are going to attack me with rulers. I am going to die.
