I can't wait to get home. It's the only thought that has gone through my mind for the last week. I NEED to go home. Don't get me wrong, I love Miami, I love UM, and I love my family here (something I say both sincerely and as a pun), but just need to be back home. I miss my Mom, I miss Khamille, I miss Kenida, I miss my Shef and the rest of my indians, I miss my tios and my primos, I miss Little Camz, Maria... and well I could go on and on. I left so much, so far behind by going to Miami. I don't regret it, because I think it's made me a much better person, and I've really grown and come into my own; but there's just so much that I genuinely wish I never left. I'm so excited to be going back, something I never really thought I would be saying. I can't wait to drive by the holland tunnel, or park illegally while waiting for keny or kamz over at Newport. I can't wait to be back in my home, in my living room, with my mom, and just hanging out, eating popcorn, and watching the sci fi channel. I especially can't wait to drop by VPA, I miss my drama, music, and art hoes soooo much. They helped make high school worth the four years when I had no one else, especially Kamz, Denise, Liam, Zooly, Taty, Stephany, Stephanie (Guatamala), Stephanie (DR), Kelly Freeman, Clara, Dona, Shadia, and everyone else (sorry if I forgot your name, but I still probably love you anyway =P ). I have so many amazing memories of you guys. I thank God for having known you all. You all make it worth it to go back to Jersey City.
To my UM family and friends, where do I begin? SpectrUM, first off, and foremost, for introducing me to the most amazing group of individuals I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Jenn and Joanna (since you are one entity), I love you both, Jo, for being the most amazing person, savior of spectrUM, best president ever, and for being so open and welcoming to an intimidated, lost freshman; and Jenn for being so friggen awesome, so much fun to play "never have I ever" with, and for having one of the most amazing singing voices I've EVER heard. Chris Fisher, chair of OUTspoken, the BEST organization I've ever been a part of, I am SO glad to have met you, and to have become part of the InSaNe Kerry Campaign. Some of my best memories of Freshman year have been with the Whores for Kerry, out on south beach, and I'm glad that I have you as a friend and I can honestly say that you are one of my best friends in Miami. Elaine, GIRL you know I love you. One of the few people I trust to drive my car, and the funniest "woman's studies" major I know. I had so much fun driving down to miami after winter break with you, and I'm glad we got the chance to bond and become good friends I look up to you, ironic since normally it's you that's looking up at me ( =P ), but anyway, I kinda feel like you're this big sister that I never had. Thanks for being there. Cate, oh Cate, I've loved you ever since COW week and never stopped. You are such a genuine person, and that is truly a breath of fresh air in what can be a very superficial Miami. I wish I would have gotten the chance to know you better, but now you're off to bigger and better things. Good Luck up in Williamsberg, and I expect phone calls! Blake, ohhh future roommie, we've already been through so much and we've only known each other for one semester. Thank God, you're my roommate, and one of my best friends at Miami, because you mace each day so interesting and unique. I'm really glad that things have turned out the way they have, cause to have ruined a friendship this good would be a crime. We are going to have shitloads of fun this semester, yay for summer school at NYU. We shall club, club we shall. Dannon, another one of my best friends at Miami, and what a fcuking pimp. I am going to miss you SOO MUCH, damn you for transfering and going back to Ohio. I've had so much fun with you, and being friends with you means a lot to me. We are the shit together, and no one's gonna bring us down. Remember that I only live a few hours away, and if anything ever happens, you are always welcome in my house. I consider you fam, and I'm going to miss not having you around and in the apartment next semester. Good luck, and find some cute Ohio boys for me, since you know we have such similar taste in guys =D P.S., I'll probably be visiting you this summer, and you know why, lol. Kristen Avery, hehe, I love my gay-man-trapped-in-a-lesbian-body best friend, and I've had the time of my life getting to really know you this semester. Just don't faceplant on the sidewalk again, k? I'm so glad you live in NY, cause I can come visit your no driver's licence ass in RYE whenever I feel like it (and have the money for gas). Pride is gonna be fabulous with you, and try and come down to the city as much as possible, then just jump on the path over to my house, I promise, I'll feed you! And we need to go clubbing in the city, 'nuff said. There are many others that I'm really glad to have known, but it's 5 am and I'm really tired, and I don't wanna just say your name and not tell you how much you mean to me... So i'll just get around to that later or in person. You all know who you are.
On a lighter note, exams are almost over, only two left. Manni gets here on Monday, and I'm really excited to be spending time with him here in Miami and on the drive back to NJ on Friday.
For those of you who don't know, FEVER at SoHo Lounge on Wednesday to celebrate the end of the year and Cate DundunDon!'s birthday.
Peace out, Rob
