Last Friday I moved out of my Corbett dorm and into a house less than a mile south of campus. There’s a lot of different stuff to get used to, both good and bad.
- It’s still kind of a shock to walk across campus, see my wing of Corbett, and not think “that’s home”.
- It’s weird to think that I can’t run down the hall and freak out over the latest development in Lost or The Office with the guys.
- I can’t roll out of bed and be at work/class four minutes later.
- People don’t cook meals for me 3 or more times daily.
- No sharing a room (If you have access to my protected posts, you’ll understand just how important that is!)
- Nowhere near as much noise – 45 less people to wake me up
- I don’t have to fit my belongings in one shared room. I keep forgetting about this one, and have to remind myself when I start thinking, “Where in my room will the fridge fit?”
- My bike isn’t exposed to the elements. (Nice since it’s pouring outside)
- I get to start cooking again, which I actually enjoy.
I’m also transitioning into my summer mode… I still work on campus, and I’m taking Calculus for four weeks. This will be my fourth summer at CSU, since I spent a lot of time there when mom was at work, or when I was at band camp. It’s kind of a shame- Colorado State is definitely the nicest in the summer, right when everyone takes off. Half of the normal school year was under snow. But the summer is nice because everything is more laid-back, and there are so few people around. Then again, most of my friends are from Littleton, Castle Rock, or Arvada, so not having a car is definitely hurting. Oh, well.
Overall, I’m happy to be where I am. I’ve got some good stuff in store for this summer, and more might unfold if I’m lucky.
