Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope your week has been as eventful as mine.
This week marked the start of my on-campus college career. With the COVID-19 restrictions, including having a very limited amount of guests to help me move in, the day unfolded in a strange, exciting, and bittersweet manner. I had to walk around the school to take a COVID test and then pick up my ID and room keys. This all posed a problem since I have a terrible sense of direction and none of the staff told me where to go. (I eventually figured it out by wandering with other equally confused students.) After I unpacked my room, said goodbye to my one guest (my mom), and decorated my room, I felt like I was in a hotel.
I’ve done nothing but organize for the upcoming semester and watch Arrested Development.
It’s nice to enjoy the nothingness of this week, as we are in a mandatory quarantine until Monday which states that we will not be leaving our rooms unless we have to eat or go to the bathroom. While I have yet to feel bored, I do have that suspiciously calm feeling one has when they are waiting for something important to happen. Overall, I’m feeling good about this whole virtual/ on-campus college thing. 4.0 season!
I’ll be posting on Sammicakes every Wednesday and Saturday morning, so keep looking out for my posts! Thank you for reading, and I hope to see all your faces soon.
