Watch Out! She's Got a Gun!
Hey, howdy, hey all you guys and gals. It's Hoosier Girl here, from the very heart of HoosierLand: Indiana University. I am here today and tomorrow in Bloomington, Indiana, with Joseph for Freshman Orientation. So, as tired as I am, rather than try to write a coherent post, I thought I would fire off a few bullets:
** It has been an amazing day. Believe it or not, I have never been on this campus before and it is beautiful. It is truly a major university. I have walked myself silly, but the weather has been gorgeous.
** I got less than 5 hours of sleep last night, and almost fell asleep in the advising session this afternoon for "exploratory" majors. I mean, REALLY asleep.
** I was checking my e-mail on my iPhone and walking and fell off a curb. Major embarrassment AND banged up knee. Luckily, no damage to the iPhone.
** Joseph is handling all the "new" very well. It is a little overwhelming. Of course they scared the shit out of me when they reminded us in the "Parents Only" session that our kids could do whatever they pleased: go to class or not go to class, do their homework or not, stay out all night, drink, do drugs....very reassuring.
** They DO seem to really know what to do with freshman. They have it all planned out - from exploratory majors, advisors, housing, and meal plans.
** No wireless in the rooms at the hotel here on campus. Had to come down to the very luxiourous hotel lobby/commons area to use the wireless.
** I have a hotel room all to myself. I wish Steven was here.
** Daniel and Aaron leave on Sunday for 2 weeks with their dad. As soon as he can get here, I am going on the road with Steven and leaving my car with the teenagers.
** That's all for now. Going up to my room to watch a movie and veg. Tired.
