The Dormitory…Continued.

Well, it’s official…I live in a dormitory once again.  Actually, it’s nothing like Canada, meaning it’s pretty nice!  It feels more like small apartments than dorm rooms to me.  The fact that you can’t party after 10pm makes this old lady happy.  I promise I will attempt to curb my hermit-like behaviour while I am here.

Let’s get to it!

Upon arriving…

My tiny yet fabulous bathroom! (I decided to post a photo before it became covered in my various cleaning, scrubbing, and buffing products.)September 28 2011 014

And the finished product…mind you now that Hugh isn’t with me every day, this may be the last time this sucker is made so nicely. Eh heh heh! IMG_1998

Well, after my first mini exploration trip, the verdict: Wow.  The weather is beautiful today (only 50% humidity) and boy is it hot in the sun, but it is gorgeous!  I am going to enjoy looking at palm trees as opposed to snow flakes for the next 10 months, boy oh boy.

I have also completed my mile long list of items I need to procure quickly to ensure survival.  This includes a non-beany pillow for my bed, and toilet paper.  The list is much longer than that, but really those are the vital items.  I GUESS I could make it without the rest.  Pfft, who needs hand soap anyway!

In an effort to keep your attention for next time, I will end this here.  I’d say I miss you Canada, but that hasn’t kicked in yet, and I’m going to fend it off as long as possible as to keep from becoming a miserable old lady hermit. :)

Toodles, folks!
