Last Saturday, I moved into a dorm for the school I'm attending here in Calgary~~ (err schedule was messed up so didn't have a class on first day OTL)
I have a few pictures here in a tumblr post---> mangokappu.tumblr.com/post/593…
Ahh okay, so I thought that I was packing way too much and only slept for a few hours Friday night (err Saturday morning), I like lessened the amount of clothes by like a quarter, and the amount of books I cut down almost all of them.. didn't even get to bring any of my manga D:
Went to Canadian Tire to get last minute things, I got an electric fan and sugar @ v @;;
The drive over to Calg was fine, i didn't sleep tho for some reason, despite only have 3 hours of sleep the night before. Uwa it felt like a mini road trip with my family, my bro even called in 'sick' for work. I I I won't admit it to them, but but I miss them ; n ;
We arrived at my dorm half an hour before my scheduled time, but ya everything went relatively well. My roommate who's right beside me regarding our bedrooms, came early too and I was able to meet her right away. My parents only stayed for the hour that their parking was free ; A ; i i i was envious of my roomie because her family like helped her for the whole day and even the next..... *sulk* *sulk*
I spent the rest of the day putting up allll my posters * V * feels so cool maaan~~ I've not had my own bedroom for a long time nor the space to put up posters, so I'm so happy I have the opportunity now~ Oh and my room is on the top floor so it's got a nice view and it seems like there's no one living in the unit right beside mine so its pretty quiet up here. Only bad thing would be that when the sun sets, my window faces it straight on so i'm like burning at my desk xD
So my roomie beside me is really nice, and pretty too. Only thing I'm worried about it... when she brings ppl over (like... right now) I don't wanna go outside D: She brought guests over like on the Sunday or Monday night, and was loud enough to wake me up so.. :/ I wish I was assertive enough to like say something about it.. but ahh too shy still. Hoping maybe since we're living for almost a year, i'll be able to say something later on >3>;;
...I hope they won't stay long OTL
I've so far also met the other 2 roommates on the other side of the unit, but one came on move-in day just to get her keys, and i only met the other one just yesterday when she moved in. So yeah. They all seem pretty niiiice... lol. I'll just keep being optimistic for now xD
Oh ya so the day after I moved in, some of the other first years at my school put together a get together and I got to meet some people there~~ I didn't get super tight with anyone, but I can at least wave hi to some people if i pass by them now ; v ; DARN MY SHYNESSSSS OTL
Anyways I got to explore part of downtown for a bit with them. I don't think I'll be wanting to explore it by myself at night anytime soon >w>;;
Lol so I cannot cook and spent the whole week (It'll be seven days tomorrow) eating leftovers and starving myself xD I succumbed yesterday and made cup noodles OTL I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO COOK AND BUY GROCERIES D8
One good thing is that I'm washing my dishes and stuff right away or soon after so nothing piles up~ I haven't done laundry yet... but i think i'll ask my mom tomorrow when she and my dad visit >w>
Oh yeah.. Walking around the school by my dorm... I realize that there's a lotta cute guys xD random but ya. Makes the walk to my school nicer lololololol. Not to mention that the campus is really pretty at this other school. Lotta trees and really pretty views of downtown too. -sigh- oh but yes, not gonna start dating anytime soon tho! ......>w>;;
The days before orientation, I spent mostly doing nothing xP I explored the nearby mall, got to preorder Sweet Fuse, but still haven't received a phone call D:
I got my very first club card at the Safeway in the mall too xP I only bought like, salt, shaving stuff, and soap lols. I dunno what groceries to buy! I need to look up some recipes to try out, hopefully simple beginner ones haha.
And oh man my room's already messy OTL
So yaa Orientation was yesterday, and it was okay xP There were sooooo many people... I wasn't expecting that many at allll, coz I could only really gauge from how many people I've seen on the fb page and from who showed up to the get together, and yaaa wow so many. That also means lotta competition! haha. The school goodies were awesome~ Got a neat tote bag, sweet sunglasses, and cute mini sketchbook in a colour i like too~~ oh they also gave out condoms and lube and it was a first for me, i didn't even notice it until later xD There's a pic of a cowboy on it >w>
So we had to make these thingies outta newspaper, it was interesting haha. I made a friend! She's nice and found out she's into similar stuff like SNK WOOOT. Hahaha. Oh which btw i saw someone wearing the jacket! I should've said something other than go 'shiiiingekiiiiii' when i passed by them... OTL
But ya, me and new friend have a class together too so i'm happy even if it's just one o v o Hope i can bring myself to make more ; 3 ;
OKAY. So right I had this problem for last several days where all my studio/elective classes were suddenly dropped. I had no idea why, so I like made several visits to the registrar office only to be told I had to hunt down instructors for their signatures if I wanted to get into their classes. Which probably didn't help because ALL first year student classes are FULL. So yaaa it sounds tedious, huh?
BUT TODAYYY. I found out that apparently classes that I took in my last school actually are credited here and like, they took me off the studio courses because I don't need them and they gave them to others who need them. SO It's actually kind of good news? I was told that I could take some second year courses this year. I was able to be put into an intro to narrative english class. The dude tried to put me into Animation and I was like YES PLEASE, buuuut it conflicts with a class I still have, so I'm gonna hafta see if its possible to drop it and move it somewhere else, or even take it next sem. AH and then when I went home to look up the class descriptions, I saw that they actually have prerequisites which are the classes that didn't get dropped from my schedule and am still taking this year..... so maybe i can't take other second year classes then ; A ; which sucks, because then my schedule's gonna be reeeeeally bare OTL Also, i was gonna rely on my studio classes to prepare for my portfolio into my major... Well, I'll find this out on Tuesday i guess >3>;;
AHH ok i rambled about lotta stuff, haha. Anyways, I hope I can adjust more to this place and my school and ahhh. It still sorta feels surreal like I'm gonna be going home soon, but at the same time, almost feels like I've forgotten what life was back there...... lol.
My goals are:
Learn to cook!
Figure out all the confusing school stuff including tuition, health care, u-pass, ETC ETC
Try to make some more friends!
Be more active and healthy and make use of adjacent school's fitness room!
EAT AT THE DENNY'S IN OTHER DORM AT LEAST ONCE lol
Try to find a job! (after everything's more settled)
Start up commissions!
Continue drawing in sketch-a-day book! (MUST CATCH UP AHHH)
Organize room! (...better)
Figure out Calgary!
and a whole lot mooore....
Okay going to sleep now = v = It's only 1! Back home I was like, sleeping always at 3-5am or something and waking up in the afternoon.. But for some reason here, I get tired earlier, and I can't help but wake up at like 7-9am... @ A @ I guess that's good.. for when I actually have classes haha.
