Moral of the story: I survived!
Other than that, everything else is pretty much the same. Loving life!
Oh yeah, I had a GREAT birthday this year. Went to dinner with my family, got a very nice surprise from Omar in the mail, and my friends threw me a mini surprise party/study break!!! It was so awesome and I was legitimately surprised! No one has ever surprised me before so it was really cool. I can tell I have made some really good friends here :)
