starry night and star day: well i got there and sat there for a long time till we checked in...we got to stay in grc apartment dorms which were sweet but i wanted to stay in the suites b/c that is where im gonna be livin next year but hey its all good...so me and kim were roomates and my friends renee and erika were our suite mates for the night. k..now off we go- we went on a tour of the campus [this being my third tour] we stayed back and didnt pay attention at all...the whole time i was observing everyone and how they act and stuff cuz i like to watch ppl...everyone looked like how i expected them to look i guess...we went to the seigal center and there we played games like we were in groups and we had to make a monster..then we played like paper rock scissors in groups but we could either be dwarf wizard or giant...dwarf beats wizard, giant beats dwarf, and wizard beats giant...our group was dwarf everytime b/c dwarfs are cool...and yup we lost everytime..ha. k next we went to hibbs dining and had dinner. there was seafood for dinner which was actually really good...i ate lots of calamari and popcorn shrimp...then i had a salad w/ lots of tomatoes... next we went to the commons and had a meeting bout stuff and then we did a 'star search' where we had to run around the commons building and find all these certain rooms and answer questions using books and resources...our group won! we got a button pin that says 'I LOVE VCU' and a sticker sayin the same and a frisbee from hardees! yay...neeext we went back to grc dorms and just hung out...we had question and answer session then we had pizza and me and shannon just sat and talked till 12 then we went up to the 4th floor where are dorms were and sat outside and talked until 530 in the morn...and we had to get up at 630...but it was worth it. shannon rocks and i was glad we got to talk cuz we never have got to talk except on the computer before. so we talked bout all kinds of stuff and it was great...the grc gaurds walked by us like 4 times and we talked to this random guy w/ is in the art department...he was tellin me bout how its really hard but fun...we'll see i guess... but anyways, im excited bout hangin out w/ shannon next year. sooo at 530 i went back in my room , took a shower, and then went to sleep for an hour till 630. then we had to pack everything up and be checked out by 7...if you didnt you would have had to pay 50 bones...so all of us were in the grc lobby barely awake and then had to walk all the way to the commons..throw all our stuff in a room and then go to another meeting where we met the head guy of the art department....[i definately fell asleep in that meeting]. after that i had free time to do anything b/c i got opted out of all the placement tests since i am in honors and got over a 3.5 gpa in highschool. so me and kim hung out...we went to GOVERNORS SCHOOL! yay...but we didnt get alumni pins....and none of out teachers were there but we did get to meet the new art teachers and we did get to 'swat cat roll' on the green. then we left and went to cary town! we went to bygones and all the vintage stores....i got a ring that says something in hebrew on it..and some luggage labels from italy to put on titanic [my suitcase]. now it was time to go back to vcu and schedule our classes...this took a while but i finally got my scedule and since im in honors i found out that i have all these special privalages..so that rocks and next semester if i keep a 3.5 gpa then i will get to scedule my classes before everyone even the seniors. then thats it....time to leave...i left w/ a quarter tank of gass and 1 dollar to make my way back to the burg
