Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Monday, June 30, 2003  
OK, I was going to finish that last post as an edit, but then I thought it would make the blog much too long, and also I am too lazy to go back in and work from a post I already have posted. So if you haven't checked here recently, read the last two blogs or so before you read this one, or else you'll be missing a great deal of o no i just lost my mind and my thread of thought thusly i begin to blither doodly doodly doo yes, um, a great deal of continuity. Or something.

So. Orientation.

Day 2 continued

The dorm has a message board down by the main lounge, where parents can leave notes for their kids, since they're not allowed up in the actual dorms, and they don't see their kids at all. My mother keeps leaving notes, I should probably be embarassed, but the notes are funny so I don't mind.

Met a nice girl today named Qiaojian, pronounced Chow Ran. She's very nice, we chat much. She's in the room right next door to me, along with Vanita and some girl named Shallu or something like that. So Qiaojian and Vanita spend a lot of time mooching about in our room. Because we have a fan. It doesn't work all that well, but in this weather it's a good sight better than nothing at all. Anyways, Qiaojian is going to be in the Mosher-Jordan dorm in the fall, which is the dorm that I'm going to be in! There's a slight possiblity that she could be my roommate. I don't think I would mind, she's a cool personage.

In the night downtime this evening, when nothing was going on, I went to sit back up in my dorm room after watching the incomprehensible playing of Mafia. I was Bored. So I called Jess up and talked with her for a while. Me, on the phone? Volunatarily??? For a reasonably long amount of time? NEVER! Yup. That's boredom for ya. Also, the joys of no roaming charges on the cell phone. Woo yay.

Then everyone else came back from their peer editing, and I had ice cream with Erika, Vanita, and some other girl named Eyvan (pronounced like Yvonne). Then we went to the computer lab, which they had opened specially that night so that we could try to work out some of our class registration woes. I mentioned this in the Thursday, June 26 blog, so see it there.

Day 3

Woke up at 5:45 today and showered. It wasn't as bad this time because a) it's cooler out today and b) there was no one else taking a shower at that time. I feel a bit out of it because I woke up that early and I went to bed pretty late, but at least I think I slept straight through, as opposed to waking up every hour or so.

I found the bus stop and made it up to North Campus for registration right around 8 in the am. The buses are air conditioned, and this makes me happy.

It turns out that Chem 130 is a prerequisite for Bio 162, so my freshman year consists of nothing but art and chemistry classes. The plus side of this is that I no longer have to worry about trying to get the impossibly timed bio class into my schedule. The down side of this is that I utterly despise chemistry and remember absolutely nothing about it. Thusly I weep.

Last night on the phone Jess asked if I've been taking pictures. I've only known these people for 3 days! My rule of thumb is to wait at least a week before breaking out the camera. Otherwise I think I freak them out a little. Not that I don't freak them out in any event, but I like to think that this restraint on my part ameliorates the freakage some.

Then I took the sheets down off the bed, packed up all my stuff, and went back to my Bubbie's house in dear ol' Southfield, that being my family's base of operations for UMich adventures. And I fell asleep.

Then we went to a Tigers/Diamondbacks baseball game! Hooray! It was actually fun. As you may or may not know, I'm not a particularly avid fan of baseball, especially not compared to football or hockey. But the Tigers actually kept the game going until the 7th inning or so. Then they crashed and burned. As is their wont.

But the stadium, Comerica Park, is all brand new and whatnot, and lemme tell ya, that is one DEEEE-AMN nice stadium. It's gorgeous. Absolutely freaking gorgeous. And the food's pretty good.

There was a big board on one of the walls that had the scores and innings of other baseball games going on that night. We were keeping an eye on it, because the Red Sox were playing that night, against the Marlins. The Sox put up 14 runs in the first inning. We couldn't believe it. It ended up being 25 to 8, if I recall aright. There was much exclaiming about this in our section. At points we were watching the scoreboard with the Sox score on it more intently than we were watching the Tigers game. Oh well.

Yup. Next day we came home. And I was very, very tired, so I slept most of Sunday. And now it's Monday. And it's hot here, but my mother the Floridian is refusing to use our perfectly good air conditioning. Thusly making me miserable when I have no need to be.

But in happier news, my actual plastic license came in the mail! Joy. And I got put on the insurance. So now I can drive the car if I so desire. I express much happiness.

One more thing. Found a website for you. It's the Cat of the Day! I used to draw a Cat of the Day in my sophomore english class. This site reminded me of those good ol' days. Have youself a merry little look-see.
