The power decided to go out this morning and as a result, my alarm clock didn’t ring. Luckily, I had about 8 alarms set on my phone, so I was a-okay. We got breakfast and finally met our entire class of 215 (I didn’t actually meet each and every person, but oh, we tried). For the record, it’s a ridiculously small world.

Before lunch, we had around 15 minutes to spare, so I decided to try using my ID to get into the gym to see if they had showers in the locker rooms (they do; hooray!). One of the guys who was also checking out the gym looked at me and said, “You look really, really familiar.”

The same applied to him, so we went through our entire list of all the places we’d interviewed at (there were no overlaps). I mentioned that I was from California.
: I went to Davis.
F: (head snaps up) :O!!!! Major?
: Exercise physio–
: When’d you graduate?
F: 2010.
: Me too.
F: :O!!!!!

(Most people probably aren’t aware of the extent of my fan-girl status towards my undergraduate majors. :X I’ll talk about it some other time.) We apparently volunteered at the same children’s hospital too. :O His roommate happens to be one of the guys I interviewed with back in October. (I especially remember him because he’s the one who went first and pretended to cry while he was coming back into the common room.) It made our days. In any case, our class is super diverse and everyone seems really nice. It’s been really interesting getting to know everyone; I heard from someone that our class represents 44 out of the 50 states. :O

This huge pile of stuff includes a new Lenovo Thinkpad, a backpack, a 32GB flash drive, a clicker, a first aid kit, our ID + mailbox key, our parking permits (we don’t have to pay for parking <3), a lanyard, and a whole ton of other stuff. Technically, it isn't actually free, because our tuition is freakishly expensive (unless you're in-state; I am so envious of in-staters ;_; ), but at least we get a ton of stuff along with the expensive tuition? (And at least people really seem to actually care about us here. :O )

I also finally have 24-hour access to the buildings! <3 I look ridiculously happy in my ID. ._. They took this right after our interviews. :X

This is what I came home to:

I guess the mailman was worried that it might rain, so they wrapped it up in a gigantic plastic bag and left it on my front porch. :O Super nice souls.

Here’s a WV sunset-ish from my balcony. :]
