narrated by: Lulu

Jake moved into his dorm this month with his dormmate and previous bandmate, Monroe. He’s taking a few classes to get him prepared for the college sciences and math as he’s a master of the written language, but not so much the practical. I’m not a master of any academics, so he’s got my admiration.

He’s been coming home more frequently then any of us expected. I think he’s homesick, although he’s playing it off that he’s here for me. I admit, being an only child at home isn’t the easiest gig. I’m glad to have his company on my days off.

narrated by: Kenzie

I’ve had a more difficult time with Dean moving to university, than I expected. He moved out all of his belongings and furniture aside from the bed, which the dorm supplied, and I find myself sulking in there when Tyler is occupied. He doesn’t approve of the mopey attitude, but I miss having him home.

narrated by: Lulu

When Simon found out about me and our boss, Clayton, I thought for certain that he would rat me out. But it’s been a month and nothing. I never told Clayton about him finding out, I didn’t want to scare him away, and now I’m glad that I didn’t.

We start school at the end of the month, and I’m already stressing about how I will see Clayton outside of work. Right now, Mom and Dad leave for work, and Jake usually wanders to a friends so I have the house to myself. Clayton swings by after I’ve given him the clear, and I make a run for his amazing, red pick-up truck. When he isn’t around, I totally fangirl squeal over his wheels.
