Finally in Columbus

So I’m sitting in our hotel room, finally in Columbus.

Let me tell you, the trip today was miserable. Usually the 12 hour drive doesn’t bother me that much, it’s actually kind of entertaining. But I only got 2 hours of sleep last night and my body just would not let me sleep in the car today. Every position I could think of made some part of my body hurt, and what sleep I got was so horrible it made me feel even more tired!!

So that’s why tonight’s post is early. I’m going to bed way early. I have to get up at 6-ish tomorrow and I would like to get a good, full night’s sleep tonight.

I guess there’s really not much more to tell. I’ve already said over and over again how excited I am to see my friends and take my classes and blah blah blah. Right now I’m honestly feeling more a sense of foreboding rather than excitement over move-in day tomorrow. I just want to get it over with!

I feel like move-in day is always the most awkward day because not only are you having to meet your roommate for the first time, you’re having to meet their parents as well. I don’t know. I find meeting peoples’ parents to be awkward.
And I’m just nervous in general about how smooth tomorrow is going to go. I’m not worried so much about OSU, I know they’ve got things covered. But I’m just worried something will go wrong.

Especially because we will have OWLs (Ohio Welcome Leaders) moving my stuff to my room, I’m nervous they’ll mess something up. I’ve got several boxes that have fragile things in them, not to mention I am very protective of the plants I brought with me. And it bothers me that random strangers have to look at all my stuff. :( I’m a very private person.

I know. I’m complaining a lot. I’m sure everything will go smoothly. And I’m sure my plants will be fine. But that doesn’t stop me from worrying.

Oh my plants. My plants my plants my plants. They are probably my most prized possession I am bringing to college with me. I’ve been fussing over them for a year now, I plant to fuss over them for many more years to come. I brought 5 with me: my arrowhead, dracaena, peace lily, aloe, and pothos vine.
My room should have the cleanest air in the entire dorm. Haha.

But I guess I’m going to call it a night. There’s nothing left for me to talk about other than rambling on about my things or freaking myself out by worrying about stuff I can’t control. Neither of those are as productive as going to sleep.

Sleep sounds so good right now.

But before I go, in case you can’t infer it from the fact that I’m starting college again, I can’t promise I will be posting every night. I’ll try my best to post every day, but maybe some days I’ll post twice, maybe some days I won’t post at all. I can’t make any promises. It depends on how busy and inspired I am.

Of course I’ll try my best to post everyday because I do enjoy writing and I think it helps my creative juices flow. Sometimes I’ll just find myself thinking of random topics to write about. It’s also sort of like a meditation for me. I think writing has really helped me sort through myself and figure things out.

But yeah, I’m going to bed now. I’m tired. Good night.

    Hi Emilleejoyce, you sound to me, just like Elizabeth Bennet.
    Your plants will be fine, and hopefully you are enjoying your slumber as I write this.
    Your roommate will be super-cool, and her folks will be too! Here’s another great quote, from another Roosevelt: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

    **I say we can substitute, in place of the word inferior, these words as well: nervous, sad, mad, upset, annoyed, embarrassed, or silly.

    Good Luck with everything!
    P.S. We need to see the plant photos soon…
