2nd day on campus

I'm writing this from my dorm room in Camrose, Alberta. Thank you all so much for the kind and supportive comments on my last post. I really appreciate it.

I'm feeling much better now. Yesterday I moved in, and today I registered, went to the bank, bought my textbooks ($470) and heard the dean's welcome address. I'm still feeling a bit frazzled, and home sick, but I think I'll enjoy this year. Right now it feels like I'm at camp, but I'm sure that will change as soon as classes start. Tomorrow is an all day New Student Conference and then classes start on Thursday. My dorm room is unpacked, but not nearly as well decorated as the other girls' rooms. Speaking which, the other girls in my hall are all really nice.

Anyways, here's the simple outfit I wore for today. These shoes are new. I stopped by the Payless in Camrose yesterday and they have a much better selection compared to any of the locations I've seen in Edmonton. Although my feet have already began to demolish these shoes. Because my feet are monsters, and most shoes quiver in fear momentarily and then break.

    Glad things are going well! Best of luck to you in the new school year!

  3. Hey Sonia, I've been following your blog since I graduated from university a few months ago. I love reading your post and you have a fantastic since of style. Since you just started school, you should check out the site, bigwords.com, which searches every site on the web that sells textbooks and displays the best prices. Good luck!

  4. Your dorm looks nice :) Good luck with the new life and projects!

  5. good luck at school! don't worry about dorm stress, it happens to everyone. your room looks about a million times nicer than the dorm cell i had at guelph... kudos!

  6. I love the Marilyn and good luck in college!

  7. I Want, no, NEED that ring, it's gorgeous.
    Your room is nice, I'm jealous, when I was a freshman I was in a forced triple, now I'm a senior in an apartment and I got the smallest room in the entire house, you lucked out.
    Oh, please tell me you didn't buy your books from the campus bookstore.
