The Beginning (Or End) is Near!

There are some advantages to having a disability it seems.  My dorm is closest to the main section of campus (no extra walking).  My earliest class won’t be before 10 a.m. (mornings with arthritis are awful).  And I get priority registration for classes!

The three-week countdown has officially begun.  Now that August is here, I feel stressed that very soon I am going to be a college freshman.

As the first round of good-bye’s approaches, I find myself not only becoming increasingly nervous, but also having second thoughts about going so far away from home.  Then again, I remind myself that I’ll be living in Malibu and my reservations vanish.

Orientation begins August 25th, which is when I receive my schedule and student ID card, and move into my dorm.  There are some advantages to having a disability it seems.  My dorm is closest to the main section of campus (no extra walking).  My earliest class won’t be before 10 a.m. (mornings with arthritis are awful).  And I get priority registration for classes!

There are not many perks to having arthritis, but when I find a couple, I tend to hold on to them tightly!

My roommate and I have decided to have a hot pink and lime green color scheme in our room — purchasing for which has proven more difficult than I thought here in Nashville.  I have purchased a few items, though I have higher hopes for my shopping in Los Angeles.

Please keep me in your thoughts as I start this new journey on the other side of the country.  And let me know of anything for which I should be on the lookout!
