as per italian rule, no one is allowed to know who their roommates are OR where they are living until they arrive. needless to say, when i arrived as the last person in a 9 man i was shocked. there are three doubles, and then i am in a triple (my part of the room top left, roommates side of room bottom left). for the 9 of us, there are two bathrooms, two showers, a full kitchen (top right), a dining room table (bottom right), couches (also bottom right), and a ton of storage space. in my room, there are 6 (yes, six) girls that go to rutgers (all of them from new jersey... obviously)
plus me, that
makes 7 jersey kids
haha and the last two are from
minnesota and philly! despite the fact that i have been awake for 33 out of the last 36 hours, i feel like time has flown by. i had some actual italian pizza and gelato (nutella flavored) which was absolutely awesome! the biggest problem is that i have no idea where i am going, but since practically everyone got here yesterday, i have had plenty of tour guides. it is really amazing how small of a world it is, which has made me feel more comfortable very quickly... just since ive been here i met a kid who goes to mendham and northeastern and i also met a girl that has a shore house on the same street as me in LBI. a lot of people are going to explore tonight but since they have already been able to get past the jetlag i think i am just going to stay in and get comfortable here for a little bit! ALSO, i have wifi in my dorm!! so i can receive messages whenever i am here! enjoy the pictures!
