Really as far as packing goes, all I can say is that I am so glad my family lives only an hour away. We did the unloading in two parts, one on Friday and one on Saturday just to make things less chaotic.
As far as the dorm goes, I love it. The common room is huge! It has all our desks and there’s even room for a sofa/futon, which we are currently working on. We’re looking for a cheap one. My room is the complete opposite of the common room. It is “bowling alley style,” meaning it is long and narrow (though unfortunately not the standard size of a bowling alley).
See the resemblance?
This year move in day has been completely memorable because of a certain unexpected guest…
Our common room has this big window—it’s quite lovely just to watch the rain and the wind and the rustling of the trees. It’s tranquil in a way—though I’m quite spoiled now because a big university is taking care of me. Supposedly it’s virtually impossible for us to have a power outage because we have our own underground grid. So I while I spend my time here, figuring out college jobs, what courses to take and chilling like I’ve never chilled before…everywhere around me there are power outages.
We’ll see what today brings. M
