Tuesday, September 1, 2009 least I have my crocheting.

Blogging in the Rider library? Now THAT'S snazzy. Not really snazzy if you know the entire backstory as to why I'm sitting here typing while listening to a bunch of incoming freshmen attempting to figure out how to work the printer. It's a funny story.

And by funny, I mean NOT AT ALL.

One of the privalages of being a member of PHOCUS is the right to move in early. This is kind of a big deal if you've ever had to move basically everything you own into a room along with over 1000 other people. Let's just say it's a HUGE pain in the ass. So Sunday night I packed up everything I could find, he 'rents and I loaded up the truck and Monday morning I arrived at my homeland! Sounds simple right? Yeah, no.

I'm fairly annoyed with the whole thing so I'll just summarize it. I can't move into my actual room until Wednesday night so my parents had to take EVERYTHING back home in the truck. I have nothing with me (laptop, books, food) so I'm just trying to pass the time as quickly as possible until Wednesday. If it is true that I'm allowed to move in then my parents are coming BACK at 7 PM.

The other annoying factor about this? Apparently I wasn't on the list of "early arrival students" and had to wait until, surprise surprise, 7 PM for a room to live in it. I'm just hoping that this is a true fact and by Thursday I'll be settled, content and full of happiness!

For the record though, it doesn't help that I mysteriously got SICK upon arrival here! Anyone who knows me can vouch for me when I say that I NEVER GET SICK. EVER. Over the course of last year, as I began exercising more and eating well, my immune system seemed to boost itself. However, my exercising has decreased (flashback to the millions upon millions of leg problems I've had) so perhaps I just have to build it back up?

Hmm, according to a Google search I just did, five foods that increase the immune system include:
  • Lean beef
  • Orange vegetables (carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.)
  • Black/green tea
  • Yogurt
  • Mushrooms
Well, now THAT would explain a lot. No wonder I was never sick! I think once I re-adjust to my "healthy Rider self!" everything will be fine.

I'm off to Dalys because I have rehearsal at 5:30! Rehearsal from 1 to 4 just wasn't enough apparently. Ohhhh, Rider, you're lucky I like you =)
