Today is officially my first day of being registered as a college freshman. Again.
At 9:30 AM I am required to be in attendance at Full Sail for orientation. This will be the first time I've actually had to be awake before 10:00 in about 2 months.
Horrid life I lead, I realize.
This whole going back to school thing got me thinking about the first time around, and how exactly I met all the people I hung out with. The majority of my friendships were instigated by living in the dorms with all the same people year in and year out. We'd leave our doors open, invite each other to the C Store as we walked down the hall, borrow movies frequently, and generally just hang out with anybody and everybody, at least once. It was so ... easy.
Full Sail, however, has no dorms, and not much of a campus to speak of. It's basically 4 buildings.
Since I'm now going to be commuting to school, the only chance I'll have to befriend my classmates will be actually during class. Considering a large portion of the students will be straight out of high school, I've got a pretty good idea of how my interactions with these youngin's will go.
I guess I could just drift through school without actually making any friends ... but I think I'll give it a shot anyway so I have some people around should I need to pull a Dead Man on Campus.
