In the dorms

I am all moved in and settled.  And I'm also feeling like a very smart shopper.  We went to IKEA (which was an incredibly long and wet journey) and I picked up some dishes, a duvet cover, sheets, hangers, a closet organizer, and some various other things for only 30 euro.  Not too shabby!

The rooms a nice- they're all different and I lucked into a fairly good sized one. We all have our twin bed, some form of dresser or bureau, a desk, some shelves, and a sink.  It's nice not to have to walk to the shared bathrooms to brush your teeth before bed (or in the morning).  We'll be heading off to main campus today for the international student orientation. It's not mandatory, but I figure it's worth checking it out.

A few things that I've noticed here: It's "take away" instead of "to go."  People don't pick up after their dogs. It's a lot rainier than I thought it would be. Printer paper is bigger.

Something I should have thought of but didn't: water-proof mascara.

Also, I have my official address now- send me an email if you would like it! :) (mom and dad- I still can't access my gophermail, so I'll give it to you next time we skype)
