So with just 6 weeks until orientation begins in Blacksburg, home of the VT Hokies, my nerves are getting rattled. I have begun collecting items I will need for school and have even started packing up winter clothes. I'll be moving the bulk of my belongings down to VT the weekend of July 20, with my soon-to-be roommate, Jenn Nagy.
Jenn and I went to Ikea on June 29 and actually had a fun time. We bonded over Red Robin burgers, bad DC drivers, and lifiting heavy dressers into a Honda Element.
I am very scared of anatomy class (so much to learn), but I will be using some free time during orientation week to begin learning some terms and some bones.
I heard from Big, Emily, who has said despite how hard it may seem it is possible to get through the first year successfully. She has given me some hope!
