As soon as I say dorm, everyone always assumes the worst, but it's not as bad as you're probably thinking. I live in a quad. That means there are four of us, but we all have our own rooms, there are two bathrooms, theres a kitchen-type area, and a living room space. When I first walked in, I was surprised at how big everything actually was.
Two weeks ago, my room mates and I were all strangers, but I already feel like I have known them for a really long time. They're all super cool, and I think they are going to help make this next year super fun.
Ever since I moved in, my life has been chaotic to say the least. I kept making lists of things I needed to go out and get for my room, but every time I would get what was on the list it seemed like I had a new list of things I needed by the following morning. I've pretty much been runnings errands every day for the last two weeks, but I think the worst is behind me because I finally feel settled in to my new room. My dad definitely loves the fact that my boyfriend will come over and help me out because that means he doesn't have to drive all the way out here to do it (even though it's only 30 minutes). DJ is pretty much the best.
I'm already totally loving college. For the most part, all of my professors seem pretty cool. The amount of homework I have been assigned is slightly overwhelming, but I'm slowly adjusting to things. Yay I can't wait to see what this year is going to be like!
