Wow so I’ve only been here for a little while and I’m already loving everything about this place. My room is pretty awesome, although it’s sparsely furnished and my roommate still isn’t here. There are a lot of people here who are pretty awesome. A bunch of us went out to dinner at this cute little noodle place and then we chilled at the door for a bit and then we explored the town for a while. It’s pretty fantastic, and even though I didn’t get to “celebrate” my 21st b-day I still had a great time. The city is beautiful. We found a big fountain and a cute little park. Even though we are kind of in the middle of everything, I didn’t really feel like I was in any danger walking around. We still don’t really know where everything is yet, and we all have to learn our way around and figure out where we’re going exactly etcetera etcetera, but It’s been pretty awesome so far.
I’m still trying not to have too many expectations for the next 10 weeks or so. There are going to be a lot of people here, and I may not even end up hanging out with the people that I’ve met today. I certainly hope that I will, but who knows. I suppose that’s ultimately up to me. I may very well meet a whole group of new people, but these guys are in my program so we’ll probably stay pretty tight. It’s really nice having a group of people that I feel like I can be a total nerd with…and get made fun of for it. That’s normal though. My RA’s are pretty fantastic and I really just can’t wait for more people to get here tomorrow.
We’re probably gonna go on a tour of the campus tomorrow, well our campus and Pitt’s campus. I’ll get pictures of everything up at some point tomorrow or tuesday…at least by next weekend. There are a lot of things i still don’t know about this summer. A lot of questions that I still have. They’ll all be answered with time…right now I’m just gonna sit back…and enjoy the show.
