OK, I'm all moved in here at the good ol' U of M. I am currently sort of a shaking wreck of tiredness, but I shall just leave a note here to say a few things. I plan on doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING tomorrow, since these past couple of days have pretty much killed me, so I'll try to post up a proper blog then.
Football game was amaaaazing, we beat Miami of Ohio 43 to 10. Yay! Details later.
Room is much, much bigger than expected. Everyone send me posters, I have tons an' tons of wallspace. Also: beanbag chair! I desperately wanted one last year and didn't have room for it, but this year I do! Huzzah! Details and perhaps photos later.
OK, much tired, too tired to type this all up. Just wanted to let everyone know that yes, I'm here, and yes, I'm alive.
More or less.
edit: Oh man! Cougar kittens found in Washington backyard! Awww they must've been so cute. No images, alas. I hope they grow up to be great big happy cougars.
Also, I didn't take my camera to the football game, but if you want to see some really good pictures from it you can have a look at these pictures from the mgoblue.com website. Their photographer is really quite good.
edit again: Oh man, quick update again tonight (it is now 11:30 in the pm) because this was just truly amazing. I was walking down my hall from a trip to the bathroom, and every single door on it was closed except for one, which happened to be pretty close to mine. The kid was sitting there with his lights off (this isn't creepy... everyone keeps their lights off as much as possible, as the overhead lights in this dorm are horrendously bright and hurt your eyes) on his computer. I thought to myself, 'Hey, I'm sitting in my room with my computer, with the lights off and ESPN on. Maybe he's exhausted by the game today and is just sitting in and taking it easy, like I am. I should go say hi.'
So I knocked and introduced myself to Rob (that being his name). He's in a single, and he's a junior, which made me feel better, as I was beginning to fear that I was the oldest (grade-wise) person on this hall. While he was talking to me, he had this weird, weird stare going on, like his eyes were really wide and he didn't blink very much. It was extremely odd and disconcerting and I found my brain screaming 'Engineer! Engineer! Engineer!' at me.
I mentioned what I was majoring in and asked what he was doing. Computer science. Score one for the brain.
Anyways, he seems like a pretty nice kid, if a little odd. But then again, who am I to judge? Just thought I ought to relate the encounter, because it was really quite bizarre. After rereading what I've written here I'm not too sure I conveyed that properly, but trust me. It was pretty weird.
