first night alone in vet school...

So J just left and I am here in my vet school apartment listening to the extremely loud cicadas screeching outside reminding me of how far away from the city I am now. It's been a whirlwind last couple of days, checking in for IDs, acquiring software, checking into new apt, moving into new apartment, realizing all the stuff I still NEED for new apartment...getting a closer tour of the campus, meeting my big sib, etc. OH-and, the bar crawl last night. You know...I was somewhat dreading it, but it was SUPER FUN. I met some extremely nice and friendly people and it made me feel better about my choice to come to vet school.
Tomorrow we have a day of bonding activities at some park in the woods-and then yet MORE BOOZE at a happy hour. There is a lot of drinking that happens in this town...

J will be returning already on saturday to spend the weekend with me..but I miss him already (it hasn't even been an hour yet). of course. I know it will get easier but right now it stinks.
