I had my orientation yesterday. It went well, aside from the fact that I was getting sick. The day all began with my Mom and I showing up, signing in, and sitting around with a bunch of other nervous and dazed looking parents and aspiring students. We bought my books, which were really expensive, and then I had to take a math placement exam, which I'm pretty sure I failed (the computer system was glitchy, so I was unable to find out right away like I was supposed to, it had the same error for all of the other thirty or so people taking it, but I just assume I probably failed it).
I spent the rest of the day going to different seminars and lectures and taking a tour around the campus. Then, I got my ID, did some extra shopping in the bookstore, went home, and got dreadfully sick with this head-cold/sinus-infection thing that made it feel like all my teeth were rotten and my eyes were going to pop out, and which I am still suffering from now, though its a little better, because I took some cold medicine.
Last night my sisters friend Jen came to stay. This morning, after I had sufficiently recovered from feeling awful and sleeping little, my Dad and I took my car, which I just got back from getting maintenance, out and washed and vacuumed it and treated all the leather and all that sort of thing... detailed it I guess you could say. And it looks and runs as much like new now as you could expect a car with 100+ thousand miles on it to look and run.
So that's about it for now....
