I was stupid and updated the kernel without thinking, and as others have sad that is obviously the issue. This is what happens when you are sleep deprived and have full time summer classes.
I did a reflash of everything. For some reason my Nexus is really slow to accept new software. When I flashed 4.4.3 to it again it failed, and I went to bed because it was late. The next morning I went to fix it and it was booting up just fine, although because it accepted the reflash I had to re set up my apps which is no big deal.
Thanks again for the help, I will learn how to fix these things on my own someday.
