Since Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was first publically identified as one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers, those who knew the nineteen-year-old have come forward to express shock. They all thought he was an extremely normal kid. Many even considered him a friend, and if new reports about Tsarnaev’s schedule after the bombing are to be believed, it’s easy to see why no one suspected a thing.

According to The Boston Globe, Dzhokhar spent his Wednesday, just two days after the bombing and one day before the Watertown manhunt that ended in his capture, at his dorm at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He reportedly worked out, slept and even attended a party on Wednesday evening where a witness thought he seemed “relaxed”.

In some ways, it would be easier to think of him as having spent the past few weeks hiding out in some sketchy basement, breathing in lead paint and slowly losing his mind. Unfortunately, that’s just not the case. He appeared to everyone as a normal student with worries like bad grades. There are even rumors going around that he indulged in some pot smoking and never seemed very religious to any of his friends.

In the days and weeks ahead, authorities will interview Dzhokhar to try and find out why he and his now deceased brother allegedly planted two bombs at the Boston marathon. Maybe it will trace back to them being losers. Maybe it will trace back to something far more complicated. Regardless, the city of Boston is filled with fighters, and the good will persevere.
