Tonight was my orientation for school. Scheduled for 4 hours of prime evening at home with my family time. What all do you really need to be oriented to as an adult student, living in your own home, commuting to a branch campus I ask you? I wasn’t going to go at all but they made it “Mandatory” on the mailing they sent out.
I went, but I wasn’t happy about it. I got my student ID made after waiting in line for 30 minutes. Got my free sandwich and sat through a painful conversation with a girl who apparently thought I looked normal enough to sit with and was probably disappointed that I wasn’t excited to be making new-best-friends with a fellow undergraduate student who would be living in a dorm on the main campus.
Then 1 hour into the procedure just before the first lecture was schedule to start I began weighing my options and ultimately decided I’d rather sit in rush hour traffic and go home than sit through a lecture titled “University Success 101″…. hopefully that’s not an indicator of my actual success in university.
