I am not a first year!

But I"m living with them again. Seems to be my lot in life to live with first year students. LOL I'm just hoping that we'll get along like last year, to any degree. (Shout out to 7202 and our honorary suite mates, you know who you are!)

I just got back from an orientation program and I have to go back out to another one in like a half hour, so this will be short and to the point...I hope.

A friend and I took the bus and went to the City Centre yesterday. We picked up a girl from Maine on the bus and the three of us explored a bit before returning for orientation programs.

We walked in St. Stephen's Green for a few minute. GORGEOUS!  There's a bunch of flowers and trees and pathways and such. There's a lake with birds swimming and people everywhere. I didn't get to look much because I was with people and had shopping to do, but I'm hoping to go back. Maybe this weekend.  Click the pictures, they should get bigger.

Here's one with construction cones. It almost felt like home for a second :)

Speaking of construction, they're repaving the front road...remind anyone else of George Street last week? Did they ever get it finished or is George Street still closed? Are they still doing major construction on College Ave???? Somebody tell me what's going on at home! Please? Pretty please with sugar and whipped cream and cherries on top?

I managed to get some shopping done yesterday. I walked around Grafton Street and a little bit of Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. There were a handful of musicians on Grafton Street and I can't wait to explore it more in depth.

OH! And our last roommate moved in. He arrived yesterday.

Food and then orientation stuff. Hope everyone is doing well. I'm trying to get through the emails you're all leaving me but give me some time. And if i don't get back to you, its not that I don't love you, its just that I'm probably sleeping or my brain is so fried that I don't have anything to say back. But I AM reading them and I'm glad you're sending them. Okay time to go. No really, time to go!

Tell me what's going on at home! A big warm WELCOME to Emily, Zachary Jonathan, and Luna Beatrix! Welcome to the world (and I hope I got the names right)!


  1. Construction is all done. But who is Zachary Jonathan?! :)

  2. It's actually Zachary John, I got it wrong. And he's Janice's new grand son :)
