I’ve checked into the VC dorms and will soon begin my MFA adventure. My son and daughter-in-law drove me up and helped bring my bags to my room. Yes, life is full of ironies–the son drops his mom off at college. He even warned me, “It’s okay to experiment in college, just don’t make it a habit.” 😉 Hmm…experiment with writing–sounds like a good plan to me. And if it works, I’ll definitely make it a habit!
The dorms are…uh…sparse? Yes, sparse, that’s a good word to describe it. But that’s okay. This isn’t a vacation and my focus is on the writing program, not feeling pampered. The room definitely has an institutional feel to it, but it has the basics (even a big fan, which feels very nice right now considering the warm temps today). Because of my potential for migraines, I’m in a single room, which is fabulous because I can spread my “stuff” all over.
Today the new students check in; tomorrow the returning students arrive then we let the games begin!
I couldn’t sleep last night, a million thoughts swirling in my mind, so I’m looking forward to getting a good night’s sleep tonight. It may be my last for a while!
