Toby and Halle

All moved in to my sophomore dorm at Campbell! :) It's a little smaller than last year's, and ridiculously configured. Seriously, who designs dorm rooms? No one with a degree in common sense, that's for sure. There's a small, two-person desk affixed to the wall--on one half of the room. If Bekah wants to study, she has to be on "my" half of the room, and studying at the same time will be pretty much impossible.

Now our beds have to be really close together, too, which makes us both uncomfortable. We like our space and privacy.

But on the bright side, I already know my awesome RA, and she's the only suite mate Bekah and I have! Lucked out again.

Bekah brought a fish named Toby. He's red and blue like Spider-Man, and named after Toby McGuire. I have a purple orchid named Halle, named after the Angels & Airwaves song "Hallucinations."

I'm in such a different place than I was last year, in every possible way. Hopefully this year will be great. I'm excited to meet new people and be my real self. Right now though, I'm bored and it's rainy. It is supposed to rain for the next seven days solid. I hope the weathermen are wrong.
