Unfortunately my day at college was a far less than cheerful one today. I found out last night that a classmate and friend had chosen to take his own life, much to everyone's shock and dismay. He was in two different subjects with me and I can honestly say they're going to be a lot emptier now without him. I don't know what drove him to such serious action and frankly I don't want to, but I'm genuinely surprised given on the outside he seemed such a cheerful and outgoing person. But I guess that just shows you can never truly know a person and that those who seem perfectly content may be far less than that on the inside. My thoughts and sympathies are with his family and close friends now.
