I know I said that I wouldn't have a blog while I was being all oriented-like in dear ol' Michigan. I am still in Michigan, lest you suffer any confusion on that point. I would hate to cause you poor sods any mental confusion.
But I digress! UMich has many computer labs in all of the dorms, obviously. I wasn't expecting any of them to be open during the summer, and they weren't. But on this, the last night we are spending in this beautous East Quad dorm, they opened up the computer lab for our enjoyment and also to let us use the UMich websites to set up our classes for registration, which occurs on the morrow.
I have used this great resource to determine that it is absolutely impossible for me to take all of the classes that I need to take. I need to take a certain biology class. I need to take a certain art class. Never the twain shall meet. One runs 11-12:30 on Friday. One runs 12-1 on Friday. Obviously there's a wee bit of conflict here. Neither class has an alternative time slot. College makes me cry, and I'm not even in college yet.
I suppose I never took all those people seriously when they said that scheduling is hell. I suspected hyperbole, but now I know better.
Anywho, I have to get up tomorrow at 6 so that I may use the showers before too many other people wake up and the dreaded lines form. Four showers for the entire hall. Not good times.
So, to bed I shall go. Don't worry, I've been taking little journally notes at night on what's been going on here, so when I get home I can make an incredible long blog and it will be just as though you, yourself went to the University of Michigan Summer Orientation.
But you don't get an MCard. Suckas!
