Im an official east coaster..kinda.. lol

Well i made it safe and sound. I arrived thursday night, checked in the hotel with my dad, went to bed. Friday we started out early, hit up the local stores and purchased a few necessities. Well maybe not a few..... thank god for those target gift cards. My dad and i went to Hofstra to check in, my suitemate had arrivied with her parents. Shes a cool girl. Shes very talkative, outgoing, loves to shop and brought a TON of stuff with her. We moved a few things in, then we all went to have dinner and run a few more errands. Saturday morning was big move in day. It took us about 6 hours to unpack and organize our belongings. My roommate arrived, and i love her. Shes quiet, laid back, likes to work out, eats healthy, and seems like a very good person. Her and i hit it off immediately. Infact we went to the gym for the first time last night. Its about a 5 min walk from our building.
My building, unfortunately, is the farthest from campus. It will take a good 15 min walk to arrive to the student center (the main hub of our campus- food, bookstore, offices, library, bank, ..etc). From there we cross the enclosed bridge to the class area. So im assuming it will take around 20-25 mins to arrive to class depending on where the building is located. Its not too bad NOW, but when it hits 10 degress and snow.. we'll see how i deal.
I also realised just how many classes im taking. Thankfully my roommate showed me how to check my schedule online. I never realised i had been looking at this week's schedule and of course monday we have off. So i assumed i had no class on mondays. I WAS WRONG- I have 4 classes monday, 1 on tuesday, 3 on wednesday, 2 on thursday, 2 on friday. BUSY BUSY.
Today i went to the mall (thank god there is a huge mall 2-3 miles from campus).. i got some sweaters and boots. Im starting now!
The hard part is not having my car. I LOVE my car, and ive been driving since i was 15. Im not used to being dependent on someone else, and i hate that feeling. If i need to buy some supplies, unless they need/want to go, im out of luck. That will be an adjustment.
Ive also never had to share a room or bathroom with girls. The bedroom isnt a big deal cause like i said, my roommate is very cool. I will have to learn how to sleep with noise. Even though our suite is 3 seperate bedrooms, you can hear everything in the rooms. Sharing the bathroom with 5 other girls is hard. I am skeptical to leave my things around, but in reality-- what could they take.. toothpaste, face wash?? So i only take my more expensive things in and out of the bathroom. The bathroom is big, however the shower is small. And we have curtains to divide up the tiolet and shower area. That way if someone is showering we can still use the potty. But i think #2 is gonna have to be a solo act.
We have a little fridge/microwave in our room. Its great cause now i have cereal and snacks throughout the room.
Anyway, thats just a lil jist of whats going on here. Its funny cause im only 30 miles from NYC, yet, it doesnt seem like it. When you live on campus, your in this bubble. Things are close by.. driving distance but only a few miles. So i hope we'll get some time to visit NYC this week. Anyway, thats a nutshell of life here.

edit- im going into the city today with the roomie!

Congratulations on your safe arrival. Best of luck in your new surroundings and in your classes.

What school?

Other than the cross-country drive, why didn't you bring your car?

how many credits are you taking-12? You're going to have to find a ride when it gets colder, especially if you're school is a mile away. I'm so glad I left the cold, it's definitely not for everyone.

Hofstra is a great school.

You are going to have to check out the Lacrosse games in the Spring.

Best sport on two legs.

You have an ex-Duke Lax coach taking over so it should be interesting

I did the same last week with my classes, for some reason I thought we started this week not last, so I missed half my classes.
I was "LIKE NO!!!!!!", I got dropped from 2 out of 4 of my classes.
I had to convince them not to drop me out of my 3rd and 4th class, To make up for it I had to pick up a class on the worst day!!! On Friday, 430pm-8pm, ugh! Thats my day off from work too!

Oh well, I couldn't do anything about the 4th class. Kinda of late in the ballgame for me to screw up like that, maybe if I spent less time on e90post buying ACS parts for my 330i, it would've occured to me to double check my class schedule online.

A solcal girl in NYC, without her , I give you 1, no more than 2 full winters over there, before you transfer back.

Oh yeah, be sure you catch the YANKEES kick ass this fall, go watch a game or two during the playoffs at yank stadium, try to take the trains to get there. And buy a yankees hat!

Congrats on your move to ny! Hope you adjust to the different lifestyle of the east coast...

Hofstra was one of the schools I was looking into when I was applying. From what I remembered, it had a nice campus- kinda enclosed within its own little "village". At least you have the huge Roosevelt Field Mall nearby to do your shopping...

Good luck with school and enjoy all that NY has to offer...

Thanks for the well wishes. Yes ive been to roosevelt mall, a couple times ha ha. The city is far, but however, the train ride isnt that bad. I mean it beats driving into the city, and we just listen to our ipods or chit chat and it goes by fast. Today we took the hofstra bus to hempstead station, hopped on the LIRR, transfered at Jamaica then made it to Penn. From Penn we walked to times square, ate at Juniors (it was ok), then we took the subway to chinatown/little italy. Did a lil shopping.. got myself a nice size poster for my wall. Its the italian national team.. of course ha ha. But atleast i got 11 guys right ontop of me. From the looks of the guys around campus, that might be the only guys that'll be ontop of me.

After we got back from the city, my roommate and i went to the fields and played a little soccer. The nights are gorgeous right now, but yea i really dont want to experience winter. Anyway, tomororw is the first day of classes but i have 1 class at 11:10-12:35 however i lucked out, cause there is some commencement speech so all classes are canceled from 11-12:45. Score! so i offically start wednesday.

Cool, I loved college...you will have a sweet time that you will remember forever!

Get to know as many people as you can...networks begin in college! I still go back once a year to see a football game and friends I met.

As for cold weather I went to Purdue (pretty big campus) and had to walk at least a mile most of the time to get to class...as long as you dress right you will be fine...living in AZ now I miss real winters/weather like crazy! There is nothing like crisp fall nights with the smell of actual leaves and burning wood...fresh white snow is amazing too.
