Good news!!!

03.02.2011

I’m so excited, for so many reasons. One, I am home, and get to eat wonderful home cooked meals, see my family, and meet my aunt’s new puppy tonight. I also just got done playing drums, which I feel like I haven’t done in a really long time. I also got my hair cut today, and was able to sleep in my own bed last night.

But- the real good news is this: housing for next year worked out!!! There had been many problems prior to this, and many of the people that we wanted to live with had not made it onto the substance free floor in Campus South. This was really disappointing for all of us, because we all had the vision of getting to live together next year. We had found out about a week ago that this wouldn’t be the case, and after numerous talks and meetings, it seemed to be set in stone. I was just getting used to the idea of not having some of my friends up there, when I got a frantic text from one of my friends today.

I was on the phone with my friend Katie, one of the girls I’ll be living with next year. Both of us got a text from another girl from our six, that said, “EVERYONE CHECK YOUR EMAIL!!!!” We figured it had to do something with housing, so both of us got onto our emails and looked, to find out that our other friends had now made it onto the sixth floor with us. I personally danced around my house. Katie and I decided to call Lauren, one of our friends who had been previously cut from the floor, but was now on it. We were in the midst of a 3-way call, basically consisting of the words, “OH MY GOSH,” and, “I’M SO EXCITED!” It was great. This is exactly what all of us had been hoping for. Next year will be perfect.
