The 25 Year Old Dorm Dweller

Yesterday was my first official day of Teach for America training, and I had no idea what to expect. Before I was supposed to leave, I squandered time in my apartment watching The Bachelorette (on Tivo) and asked myself: do I really want to make new friends? (The answer? Not really.) Eventually, I talked myself into getting in the and driving to Rocky Mount (where we'll be until Saturday).

Seeing this as my chance to take what I've learned since college, I packed heavy: two bags, an extra comfy down-alternative mattress pad, and extra pillows:

Don't worry about it. 
Because seriously? I am way too old to be sleeping on any sort of dorm bed, much less a dorm bed sans extra-thick mattress pad. (I don't even want to think about what has happened on this mattress. I. Need. A. Buffer.)

When my parents dropped me off at UF seven (eek!) years ago, I was stuck with the top bunk of a temporary triple with girls who didn't speak English. I didn't have a cell phone, a hair straightener, or friends. Guess what? Being in college when you're 25 is way more fun. Not only did I not had the urge to cry a single time, but my roomie for the week is from Cali and totally kicks ass. Unlike the bitchy girls on my former dorm floor, our whole floor was walking around and introducing themselves. Wait, people that actually want to make friends? What is that about?

Our interview day is tomorrow...keep your fingers crossed!
