“I’m Making Friends!”

Well hi there!

If you missed my epic story about how I hurt myself doing burpees yesterday, you can read about that here. It was a fun time.

In other news, I went to university orientation and had a great weekend to follow! Here’s what was going on in the noggin during the excitement…

Orientation + weekend = marvelous! Thanks for hosting, Katie!

Orientation Thoughts:

“People at this train station are hardcore judging my overnight oats in a jar.”

“I hope I don’t sleep through my stop while napping on the train to Boston.”

“Hooray, I’m in Boston!”

“Take the T (subway) or walk 2.6 miles with my bags to campus?…The weather is nice, so I’ll walk!”

“This is a lovely walk through Boston. Look, ma, I’m independent!”

“It’s getting pretty hot out here. Gettin’ a little sweaty.”

“Wow, I’m a sweaty pig right now. I smell.”

“I made it! I need a nap.”

“Hey, I have some pretty cool roommates for orientation!”

“I’m making FRIENDS!”

“Showering in the dorm bathrooms is stressing me out. Is it socially acceptable to walk around in a towel on the first day of orientation?”

“My actual roommate for this coming year is THE BOMB.”

“Where’s the peanut butter at in this dining hall?”

“Chemistry has separate classes for pre-lab, lab, lecture, and discussion. What?”

“Wow, they give us so many cookies here.”

“It’s fuel for all our walking on campus.”
