I know crissen you- JoJo 8/15

Dear JoJo,
Yes after nearly two months of you sitting in my closet and one car ride to college I have decided to get some use of you.  So at the age of eighteen as I embark on a new chapter of my Life I am starting my first diary.  Dear God I hope this decsion does not come back to bite me in the butt.  I thought today was as a good day to embark on this dairy adventure because today was the day I moved into my freshman dorm.  I know call Keller home.  I am a freshman at the University of Desani.  I have no idea what I am going to major in yet.  I was a little hesitant of moving so far from home but based on what I have seen today it is going to be a very exciting year.

Haley was the second to arrive after me.

"Dad you need to lift with your legs." Haley said.

Haley is a freshman as well.  She is an in-state student.  Her hometown is only two hours away from campus.  She has dirty blonde hair and green eyes.  She seems very out going.  

"Hal I am doing the best I can.  It would be a lot easier if you didn't insist on bringing such a big tv we wouldn't be having this fight." her dad yelled.

"Dad how can I enjoy grey's anatomy on a twenty inch?" Haley said.

Haley lives in 101.It is the first one on the left.  Haley was the lucky person to get the room directly across from the hall director.

Next to make her presence known was Gina.  She was of Oriental decent, what kind I can't be sure right now because that is rude to ask when you first meet a person.I do know she is from Florida and that she has a boyfriend.  She told me that five times in the three minutes we talked.

"Mom it doesn't look good there lets try it on the other wall." Gina said to her mom.

"You can't do that honey that is your room mates wall." her mom said.

"I have a roommate?" Gina yelled.

"yes honey this is college everyone has a roommate." her mom said.

We were gonna have some problems with her I could tell.

Gina lived in room 111, the last room on the left.  She had the privillage of living across the hall from the RA.

Then came the twins.  They aren't really twins but they look and act the same.  From what I can tell they have been best friends since kindergarden.  Right off the bat they were some of my favorites because they were the quites moving in because they had already planned out their room over the summer.  Their names are Sarah and Megan.  They moved into room 104.

Then came Hannah, Gina's roommate.

"What are you doing in my room?" Hannah asked.

"Your room, my room!" Gina said.

"Gina we have been over this its both of yours. You must be Hannah." Gina's mom said.

"Yeah got out of my room." Hannah said.

"Honey we spent like five hours explaining this to you, you are sharing this room." Hannah's mom said.

"Where's the rest of it?" Hannah said.

"This is it honey its a dorm room." Hannah's mom said.

Yes this was going to be a long year for all of us.

In the midst of yelling came Pear.  I am 88 percent positive that is not her real name.She is beyond a hippie chick.  She wears only hemp cloths and only eats food that has died naturally.  She meditates and listens to records and has a tank of slugs.  She moved into 108.

She tried to interven between Hannah and Gina but one of them broke her inscenets.  Neither one will officially take credit for the incident but it had to be one of them.

Then came Steph she has severe seperation anxiety.  She was crying and clamping on to her parents legs.

"Don't leave me here alone!" Steph yelled and cried.  "I don't know anyone here and what happens if my allergies act up and what if no one here likes me and what if my classes are too hard for me."

"You will be fine honey." her dad said trying to escape from her.

"We live five minutes away, you will be fine." her mom said.

Thanks to her roommate Martha, Steph's parents were able to escape.

Martha will definitly be the mother on the floor.  She brought cook books and cleaning supplies and a first aid kit.  She reads 'Better Home and Gardens' and watches HGTv.  When I met her I met my mom at 18, it was pretty surreal.

Martha and Steph live in room 103.

The last girl to arrive was Zena.  Yet again pretty sure not her real name.  She lives with Pear in room 108.  She is a gothic/vampire. She too has taken advantage of the privilage every student has to bring a ten gallon tank into the dorm.  She has some sort of black snake in there named 'pinky'.  As long as she doesn't try to eats Pear's slugs I am sure they will be fine.

The rest of the seven girls moved in five days ago for Sorority rush and I have not met them, but based on how they have chosen to decreate their doors they showed be a real hoot.

Thats everything that happened on move in day at Keller Hall as I know it to have happened.
