First Day of College - Completed!

Yesterday was the day of move-in and orientation at the college I'm attending, and it was a crazy day. The process of moving in took a while (hooray for being on the second floor of a the parking garage and having to cart heavy boxes up and down multiple staircases), and then it was a series of welcoming speeches, conversations with professors, RA meetings, and more welcoming events.

I'm quite excited for the events of today (I got out of bed at 5:30, simply because I couldn't sleep), even though it's mostly more mandatory meetings and so on. Still, the people here seem to be wonderful, interesting individuals, so it's never really boring.

One of these days (hopefully quite soon) I will take some photographs of campus, because there are some beautiful buildings and locations. But for now, here are some pictures of the drive we made on the day of move-in. It was a gorgeous morning and made the longer trip much more pleasant.

The Launch of a New Blog


Welcome to Adventures and Escapades, a blog about the next stage of my life: college. Whether you're completely new or a follower of my old blog, I hope you'll stick with me as I document the years I spend as an undergraduate student, including academic and personal experiences and other things I find interesting. I'll probably be posting at least once a week once college begins, with a few posts before and during move-in/registration, and will include updates and musings on the classes I'm taking, people I'm meeting, and (as promised) the adventures I'm undertaking.

Time to boldly go where no one has gone before!

(Well, okay, where a lot of people have gone before. But I haven't been there yet, so--onward!)
