This week is filled with firsts for me. Monday was my first chance to meet my classmates at a half-day orientation. Wednesday will be my full-day orientation and the opportunity meet faculty members as well more as classmates. (I expect to have achieved uber-oriented status by Wednesday night. Blind fold me, spin me around 3 times, and ask me to point north. Chances are that I’ll give you the correct answer no less than 1 out of every 4 times. ) Thursday is the first day of classes, and some time after that, my first meeting with my adviser.
I hope to add even more excitement to all these firsts by also moving in to a new apartment (as soon as I find one and can shed my homeless status, that is) and starting on my first day at work (as soon as I find a job and so can stave off eviction from my yet-unfound apartment). Will let you know how everything turns out!
