Both days were pretty relaxing. Monday we had orientation from 9:00-3:00. It was pretty boring but I guess we met some new people along the way. I then met my "regular" group to go to the beach. Mike, Kevin, Shir, Inga and I played frisbee on the beach for a while which was really funny but definitely tiring. It was too chilly out to go in the water so Allie, Sophie, Jack and I sat around talking before taking the bus back home. That night, Aleesha, Sophie and I went to the new common room for a BBQ and movie night to meet some new people but almost everyone left after the BBQ so we split too. We met Mike, Kevin (who is from Brockport), and Shir outside and ended up talking to them and joking around for a bit. After, we tried to go check out the on campus bar but since Sophie was only 17 she couldn't get in so we came back to our flat instead. That was totally fine by me because I was finally exhausted. I've been waiting for the time difference thing to catch up to me and I'm pretty sure that was the night.
Tuesday, we had to wake up at 9 again for orientation but it was only until 12:30. During orientation, we were meeting the people sitting around us and Liz and I met the guys that live in the flat next to us. We all get along great and talked about doing dinners together and such this year so I think it will be fun. After that, because business schools always think they are better than everyone else, I had to go to a business and economics school orientation. Luckily that only lasted an hour and I was able to stick with one of the guys we had met earlier that lives in the flat next to us. We both walked back to our flats and then Liz, Sophie and I headed for the beach again. There we met Lauren, a girl I had met on my first flight from New City, Mel, Allie, and their orientation group. About fifteen of us laid there joking around and talking for quite a while before they decided to take the bus home while Liz, Sophie, Lauren, and I went to coffee culture again. We sat in there talking about our high school and college experiences before taking the metro back. When we all got home, Aleesha told us that the boys next door had invited us over so we headed over there for the night to hang out and celebrate Sophie's 18th birthday at midnight! We then tried to get into the bar but they don't let people in after midnight and the bouncer was being rude even though it was her birthday. Instead, we met up with some of the guys there and just hung out until we all decided to go to sleep a while later.
