I’ve been testing out my computer.
See, I got this HP Pavilion Entertainment PC and it’s sweet. So smooth. I like HPs because they look smooth and they run smoothly. They have the aesthetic value and the performance value. And this one is fast. I like that.
I think my dad is talking to himself.
Okay, so move-in. I moved into VCU yesterday. I’m so glad I have a nice room-mate. I guess for both of us, it was just get-in, get-all-your-crap-in, and get-out, so we didn’t really get to talk, but I did get to meet her family, which was cool. That took a bunch of stress away. However, she left immediately to go home until Tuesday, so this would have left me all alone. I considered manning it up and spending the night alone in the dorm last night, but I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my mom and little sister before they left Richmond, so I decided to stay in the hotel with them last night. Today, I’m spending time at my dad’s house, and then tonight, I’ll spend the night in my room and stuff because my dad’s leaving for California tomorrow for the week. And then this week, I suppose I’ll spend a lot of time on my computer getting to know where to go, as well as a lot of time on foot just exploring the campus. I’m at a bit of a disadvantage with my room-mate not being here, because I would have probably wanted to explore the city with her and get to know her and such, but that’s where my good old high school senior buddies come in.
The only thing I really feel uncomfortable with right now is all this free time I’ve got. Classes start on Thursday, but until then, we really get to roam around and do basically whatever we want. There are no instructions or real orientation plans, and it’s unnerving. Right now, my major concerns are:
1. What’s up with the bus systems? Where are the bus stops? What times do the buses come? Is it free? How do I pay for it? Can I start using it all today? How far apart are the MCV and Monroe Park campuses (because I reside on the MCV campus, but my classes will all be on the Monroe Park one) and could I realistically walk to my classes, because I think that would be great?
2. If I want to bike around, where do I park it? Is my bike cool enough?
3. Are there any rooms I can’t go into on my floor (besides, you know, other people’s)?
4. HOW do you act around upperclassmen? How much do upperclassmen hate freshmen? How much do I look like a n00b?
I’m not even that worried about meeting people at this point. I’m just worried about getting to where I need to be. I mean, when I get up tomorrow morning, someone else on my floor will have to be in the bathroom, too. And I can say hi and introduce myself then. Forced situations are great.
Anyway, I haven’t posted any music for you at all lately. That will start again soon.
