Good morning, everyone, it's 8:03am. Drama is already starting up. I had to call the police on a group of guys arguing on the front porch of a house right by me. They're drunk. They were also shoving each other. This should be an interesting day. Also, I took the day off of school because it was boring yesterday and there's really no reason for me to be there since freshmen have the day off. Here is crime for today.
