MDIP – Moving in to COLLEGE!

I'm going to say, right off the bat, that I am about to explode with excitement. I can feel my legs quivering and I can't stop it. I'm the only person in the room right now because one roommate has to go back to her hotel, and the other is at Target buying a few last supplies. I have jumped around with joy and I'm only refraining from screaming because the window is open.

The morning was off to a rocky start, as my parents argued about which car to take and where to eat and all the other things parents argue about. I said goodbye to Larry (I will miss him dearly, but I will not miss having cat fur everywhere), and we were off, parents still arguing. Nevertheless, by lunchtime everything was smoothed out, and I was at In-N-Out eating what was perhaps my last In-N-Out burger in a long time (I can't believe they don't have an In-N-Out at Berkeley).

An hour of mild traffic later, we were here. And then began the unpacking. I thought I was overpacked, but it turns out, the room is humongous and I am woefully underpacked. Luckily, I have to go back to San Jose in a month for a doctor's appointment, so I can pick up some more jackets that I left behind.

I am so incredibly happy right now. This is everything I wanted and then some. Hopefully I don't screw up too badly too soon, because I am really enjoying this so far. The room is incredibly spacious, I nabbed the bottom bunk (though it's a bit shorter than I would have liked), and the desk area has really great natural lighting. I should head out to get some dinner now! ◊


  1. Congarts, feeling happy and jittery for you just from this post! Can't imagine how happy you are, and good luck to you :3

  2. Such a nice dorm! I'm starting out college too, but I live at now I'm getting some ideas of how it is to live on campus from your blog :)
