So here I am. I’ve finally arrived at Huntington University. I moved in this weekend, but it’s taken awhile to write this because my computer is being worked on. Yep, it’s a popular refrain with me but true.
I’m still adjusting to life here, but I’ve met a few people. The orientation for all new students on Sunday night helped me to understand the school a bit better as well as get the remaining paperwork and other first-time stuff taken care of. One of the new students that I met is originally from Sierra leone, and another is an exchange student from Germany. (No, Mom and Pop, I didn’t strike up a conversation in German).
Sunday morning I went to College Park Church. (There actually is a street named College Park, which is what the church is named after). I met several students from the college there and got to know some of them a little. The service was both enjoyable and thought-provoking. One other thing was that I met with a student that I knew from a previous visit and had lunch with him and my folks.
How do I actually feel about being here? Well, I’ve started to get used to being by myself more than at home. It’s kind of depressing not even having a roommate to talk to. I have structured my schedule somewhat so that i can at least eat with people I know sometimes. The guys on my floor are really great, too. I’m doing to do okay, I think, but I still get nagging urges to run home and sleep in my own bed.
