The last week has been crazy. I feel completely lost amongst the errands, orders, confirmations and packing that has to be done.
The next few days are going to be even worse. Tomorrow and Monday are going to be full-on packing days – going to college entails lots and lots [and lots] of packing. Tuesday early morning we fly to New York, arriving the same day in the afternoon. I’ve ordered my new mini laptop, I’ve ordered my new computer for the dorms, and more shopping will be done in New York. Saturday, August 29th is move-in day.
The next week or two are going to be crazy – chalk-full of outings, shopping, and once orientation week starts, lectures and registration processes. I’ll try to write as much as I can, but I can’t promise prompt or daily entries. This is too bad, because my stats are pretty pathetic as is, and I’ve been here a year. Still, hopefully once I get settles into a routine at Sarah Lawrence, I’ll be able to write properly, maybe even using my school-work and essays as entries or as ideas for what to write about.
For those who are interested, I already have my first course at SLC – this course is under the title of “First Year Studies” and the professor teaching me will be my Don, which is a kind of adviser. This class is for both semesters, and the one I got is this: Text and Theater. It’s a literature course that studies the texts of plays. The professor seems amazing so far [I received a very sweet email from him that he wrote everyone who will be in this class] and I’m excited.
I hope to be here as often as possible. I’ve been here almost a year, and I love my little blog.

We’ll all be watching for you! You take care of your studies–trust me, we all understand. Stats can’t possibly convey how much we all enjoy reading your work.
Aw, J.W., I know stats don’t really mean much and that I shouldn’t even be looking at them… But come on, they’re right there in my Dashboard!
My views mysteriously jumped up to 40 today… Hmm… 😀
Thanks for wishing me well and for being amazing, J.W. Seriously. Truly. Thank you.
‘Atta girl! You just keep writing . . . we’ll do the rest ;^)
Take all the time you need and we’ll still be here checking you out. I wish you the very best of luck Ilana. What a great experience you are embarking on. I envy you getting this chance. Let us know you made it safe if nothing else for a while. I’ll be thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way.
I think that everyone would understand the insanity of moving to a new college so far away and how much of your time it will take, especially after you start school and all of that homework. I know I’ll be checking in 🙂
It will be a wild time for a while, but your e-pals are excited for you. All the best,
Yes, do keep writing! But I am absolutely excited for you, Em! You are going to go far, I -know- it.
