Miner Hall was updated over the summer, now our second floor has a lounge area and finally we have some vending machines. Mom doesn’t approve of garbage food or the high prices, but sometimes a college student needs a late-night snack.

I’m also a fan of the new arcade games. The main floor has pinball, but I’ve never been a master pinball player. I feel that I at least get my coin worth when I play these newer games instead.

When Grandma still lived on her own, and owned the Farmer’s Market in Millwood, they used to drink coffee every week, and catch up on gossip around town. Since Grandma moved in with us, she confesses that she hadn’t kept up those ties, and now feels plagued with guilt.

It’s my second year at Eastborough, and it’s just starting to feel like I belong here. My Freshmen year was difficult, I missed my family, and felt guilty for not missing them enough, especially Nolan.
