Calm Before the Storm

Sorry for the lack of updates. Training has been a bitch with me having commitments from 8:00 a.m. to 2 a.m. @_@. But enough of me bitching, it has also been one of the greatest times of my life. I've made 50+ friends who are all amazing! I really hope we can stick together through the year and whatnot.

This weekend, everyone moves in. It should be exciting! A lot of people are scared, but this time is the reason I signed up to be an RA. Not a lot of people really know this (or they probably just expect it from me :-P), but move in for me was one of the most depressing times of my life. Being 2,000 miles away from home and not knowing a single soul was a very daunting thing. Almost all of the first 6 weeks I had to hold back tears of the uncertainty of the day. Would I have someone to eat lunch with? Will they let me hang out with them? Am I the only one who doesn't have any plans this weekend? Luckily, the people on my floor are the most amazing individuals I've met in a long time. To them, I say thank you! I wouldn't be half the person I am today if it wasn't for your guys' love and friendship. So thank you Alex, Jun-wen, Emi, Elaine, Yukari, Christine, Sarah, Liz, Matt, Bessie, Amanda, Cynthia, Aimi, Emie, Brian, Joe, Lawrence, Shasta, Nuri, and Allison. You guys are all wonderful and have so much to ofter the world. I hope and pray that my residents this year are even the slightest bit as awesome as you guys are. I hope I can help them through this rough time like you guys did for me.

--Till then...
