on orientation

had orientation.

saw school for the first time today.

however, first and foremost:

LIFE UPDATES

1.

school fucked up registration, so am literally signed up for zero classes.

confronted registrar regarding said issue.

dialogue went as follows:

me: hello, i'm sorry but i never received my class schedule....
registrar: H'OKAY LET ME TZUST TSECK REAL QUEEK FOR VON MOMENT....

(rustling papers)

registrar: OH.... OH UM....

(rustling papers, followed by thoughtful pause)

registrar: EEZ OK, NO BEEG DEAL, YOU TZUST GO TO ANY CLASSES YOU VANT ON MONDAY AND TELL THE TEATSER TO POOT YOUR NAME DOWN.

and 2.

still have not figured out pin number on nokia and have therefore been without mobile phone for five whole days.

though the anxiety is slowly receding and am growing accustomed to living without cell like the amish or people during the seventies,

symptoms of withdrawal still remain.;

keep thinking ringtone from my american phone is going off, causing heart to leap with wild joy at prospect of communicating with anyone from former life, only to be brutally dashed upon remembering that

a)

do not own working, functioning phone.

and b)

do not really know many people yet so would not be receiving any calls or texts anyways.

ok then.

had orientation.

saw school for the first time today.

actually exceeded expectations- was gorgeous and not that ghetto.

and being outside of the city where apartment is, has nice views.

took mad photos for your viewing pleasure.

am so nice and giving in manner of saint.






amazing.

later went out for dessert with the girls.



also amazing.

ate them like crazed american bison.



think was huge soccer match tonight.

man in pastry shop kept anxiously looking back at tv, while speaking to us in overly enthusiastic and encouraging screams.

pastry man's favorite english phrases:

YES YES
OK
PICK WHAT YOU LIKE

and then, a combination of the three:

YES OK YOU PICK, PICK WHAT YOU LIKE OK.

something good must have happened

because can still hear soccer chants from the balcony of my apartment.

believe self is warming to this city.

and orientation day II tomorrow, bright and early.

so fucking gay.
