Settled In

Why hello!  

I hope you enjoyed my awesome guest poster yesterday! Jill has been a wonderful new addition to my reading-list.  I was also so excited that she contributed to the "Chalk It Up" series in the spirit of my blog's namesake.  This is a busy time of year for her as she is a teacher, but I recommend stopping by her blog.  It's one of my new favorites

I have a bunch of good excuses as to why I haven't really posted all week, but I'll spare you them.

Instead I'll tell you this, I'm all moved into the dorms at UNLV.  I'm amazed at myself to be completely honest.  Last year, I was so stressed out about it and had no clue where to go.  This time I was completely cool and collected.  I had a lot to do, but amazingly, I figured everything out really quick and had time to get cleaned up and go out on a date when I was all finished.

Don't get me wrong.  My room was not neat and tidy.  I only just finished putting away all my clothes and organizing things how I wanted them.  There's quite a few things that I still need to get, but I think it's going to be a pretty alright set up. 
It's pretty small and there isn't a closet, but I'm trying to make it work.  Please excuse how bare everything is.  I'm working on making it a bit more homey, but I'm just not quite there yet.  Today I had to spend way too much money on some books, (one of them is just paper.  Not even bound) so...who needs decorations?

So far today I've purchased a parking permit, finished some paper work at the ROTC building, bought my "books", organized my room, and put off going out to my car for any reason...My parking permit is for a lot a good distance from where I live.  Dumb. 

I also graduated to the wireless mouse today.  About time...

My roommate is cool, the A/C works and I'm feeling pretty dang relaxed, so I guess that means things are good!  I hope everyone had an amazing week and has a fabulous weekend!

I'm glad you're all settled in! The parking situation at unlv always stressed me out when I went there.

Glad you're settled in! When I was at college, I ended up just taking lots of photos of me & my friends & family and taping them up on the wall. :)

Oh goodness. Girl I'm going to have to send you some decorations. You can not have plain bare walls like that! Glad you're all settled in and everything is going well. I hope your classes go well Monday.
