I might get a bed frame which will be nice when it starts getting super cold
Today was the first day of school and I didn't have any class...I'll get to class someday - as soon as I get a student number which should happen tomorrow. I met with a guy today about all this and got a big stack of paperwork to apply for a residence visa here (would have been cool to know beforehand). I rode my bike with Janne in the morning which took about 10 minutes. It was a nice ride, but I can't imagine what it will be like when it's snowy and minus 20 here. I think by then i'll be used to the cold. I explored the university a bit and found out where the bookstore was so when I actually get classes, I'll know where to go.
After meeting with Joris, I rode my bike to meet Susanna, a lady I was in contact with this whole summer. She was extremely friendly and I met the head of the Communications department (I forget his name, it was very Dutch though) and he gave me a hat. I'm not the fondest of hats, but I had to take a picture. Of course it is in blue and orange -
I actually like this small room. remind me that I said this after a few months
the Dutch pride colors even though the flag is red white and blue. Everywhere you go, you see bright orange and fitting right in, I have a bright orange bike and a bright blue lock.
I'm guessing tomorrow I won't have a busy day, but we'll see. There's some great art all around campus and one that i found that's my favorite so far. I'll try to take a picture soon. I visited the SMIT office (for international students) and they're having a get together for all international students at the Vesting Bar. yes, I said bar. With the little exploring I did, I saw Grolsch beer bottles everywhere - in classroom windows, offered on tap at the main campus bar and oh yah, kegs of beer that you can by at the the student store along with your highliter, which I found funny.
Lastly, by special request, I took a picture of the dutch toilet. It might not look that weird, but once you use one, you'll understand what I'm talking about. Also, now you can see pictures of what my room really looks like all set up. Till next time, Doei! xoxo
