First day of school!

Today was the first official day of school. We had orientation after orientation, and after so much orienting I think I know how things work–or better yet, I know who to ask when I don’t know the answer, or even the question.

The cafeteria food has been surprisingly good, and I’ve been carrying my thermos with hot tea all over because it’s so bitterly cold I felt my mind shutting down a few times. Luckily the dorms, although Spartan, are very comfortable. Maybe what makes it so comfortable and enjoyable is the companionship of my wonderful roommate, a woman I’m in awe of and whom I hope to introduce soon.

I also attended my first lecture, which was amazing.
Day one down. Tomorrow we start with workshops, and I can’t wait to meet my workshop partners!

Note to self for next winter: bring the heaviest, warmest, most comfortable winter boots and leave the fancy ones at home.
