It looks like Orientation days will be full day affairs. This morning we were all herded into an auditorium (I was snagged by the girls of group #42) and had the opportunity to learn about sexual health, Dungeons and Dragons, and theater. I’ve got nothing. Again, who on the FYNIR committee decided those three things were the most important? I’m not sure how to feel about this.
I had lunch in a cafeteria today. My school’s cafeteria. This is an incredibly weird feeling. I have a school, and it has a cafeteria full of loud people and crazy amounts of food. I’d rather bring my own lunch than fight for it in a cafeteria line, but still. It was kind of cool. There are so many things that ordinary school-going kids have done that I’ve never experienced before. Taking a bus to school. Cafeteria lunches. Seeing the same people in the same place for school-related activities multiple days in a row, and having them not be family members. Spending all day walking around campus, painting yourself red, yellow, and blue, meeting people you’ll spend the next four years with. I’m beginning to enjoy it. I have now sung all of the chants unabashedly and danced through a rugby field painted like a Gael with over 500 other people. I can’t believe I’m enjoying this. It’s really not my thing. But I’m having a blast.
Also, I am totally exhausted from the physical exertion of walking all day, and doing the Frosh Olympics, and dancing (badly) more than a little. Carina, my roommate, thought I was drunk when I got home, due to my loose-limbed flop towards the fridge. My arms and legs have given up on me. I’m a floppy gelatin creature in need of sleep. Goodnight.
