Kapatid...

Ken,

How are you getting to school?  Do you know when Mom will have a place in B for you to live in?

Don't stop going to school. Don't take another week off.  You'll never catch up.  I'll tell you that from experience.  That's what happened to me one time.  I delayed a week, and this was in college, I got a friggin D, and it didn't look good at all in the long run.  I'm telling you...don't stop or quit, even for just a week.  Sit down and just listen in class.  Take notes.  And, if you must, go to the teacher afterward, and explain to them your situation.  They'll help you out. 

You need your own room, that's very true.  I'm not there, and Mom doesn't really listen to anyone.  You need to put your foot down and tell her you want to move.  You're sick and tired of being cramped out in that house.  Really, Ken, Mom doesn't have it together all the time.  If you sit there and wait for her, you'll likely be last or fall behind.  You deserve to be in school.  You deserve to have your own privacy and room.  You'll have to take charge.

Not that I'm bad mouthing Mom.  You do understand where I'm coming from.  And, I want the best for you.  You just have to demand things from Mom.  Don't wait.  You know what you need.  Go get them.

Honestly, this is all bothering me, you know.  I want you to get the best head start in life.  This isn't helping.  Well, when I get back, I promise I'll help out as much as I can, but until then you'll have to fight for it, little brother.

Keep me posted.  I'll be leaving for Vietnam after tomorrow and on-line access will be come and go, but I will check up on you. 

Do not stop or delay going to class! 

Love ya lots,
your sis

Oh sorry for not letting you know about my day at school. I was having a bad week because I wasn't expecting to work as soon as I got my schedule. We still haven't moved >_< I was excited to go to school and all but I didn't expect everything to turn out like this. I'm still not adjusted to being in Berkeley still. I've only known this place from the visits we've been having back and forth. I don't know what Mom's doing with finding a home. I know she's looking for one but it's just starting to get me worried all the time. I know I shouldn't be worrying about the house at all but I WANT MY OWN DAMN ROOM FOR ONCE. I'm sick and tired of being at home doing nothing. I'm starting to get lazy all of sudden once school hits me. The thing that bothers me the most though is being able to figure out and complete the work they gave me. I'm just stuck there brain dead looking at my assignments and don't know what to do. I feel like I've gotten stupid from not going to school and choosing to stay home. Idk. I just need to take it easy and stop pressuring myself to know all this stuff right away. It's too overwhelming at the moment but eventually it should all settle down. Mom and I are gonna head over to the school today to see if they can make me start next week, so at least that way I won't feel like I wasn't informed enough to know what to do.
