im sooo stressed and i have sooo much to do but oddly enough im really really happy. i think this has been one of my favorite semesters at Emory so far. its less drama kinda and idk i see people less but i feel like my life is more together kinda and yet more chaotic if that makes snes. idk im kinda drunk right now. i blame aj. i had a few drinks, went to hang out with him, we start taking shots and next thing i know im drunk and so is he. fun times fun times. i like spending time with the kid...
