November 21, 1997 Friday
Right now everyone is leaving for Thanksgiving break, but my own ride doesn’t come until tonight. a week-long break is a good thing. This morning I was finally able to see my adviser and set up classes for the the spring term. Earlier in the week I had gone to see if there was an earlier time available, but it was either today (in which I’d have to miss a class) or wait until December 6th. Oh well, at least it’s done.
I can’t wait to go home and drive. Jeremy, a kinda weird guy that’s a Junior and lives on our wing, took me to Walmart last night to get some new glasses, but there were a few problems. The eye center in Peoria wouldn’t give out my lens prescription, like it was some kind of top-secret, classified information. Finally, that red tape was cut, and I will be able to see again!
Best of all, when we got back to Thompson, who was down in the lobby but Kerri from the summer. We had sent a few e-mails to each other over the course of the last three months, but I hadn’t actually seen her since July. When I brought her up to the fourth floor to show her around, some thought she was my sister (they know I have one, but they must have forgotten Nicole’s much younger age). Kerri and I do look something alike, as well as having the same birthdays.
I am really looking forward to seeing Elmwood again (who keeps says these things?!…).
