UC Berkeley - Week 1

Whooooooo I'm trying to wake up right now (yes I know it's 12:34 and I've already had one class haha). So anyways I was going to write one long post but I think I'll do two posts and you can choose to read one or both. This post is more about my program and my life here at Berkeley and the other will be more about Dylan and such.

So anyways, I've been here for a week and I guess I should lay out the basics first. I'm taking 3 classes here Mondays-Fridays I have Economics in the morning and Abnormal Neuro-psychology in the evenings and on Tuesdays and Thursdays I also have Foreign Films & Food. Besides a curfew of 11pm and 12am on weekends, I'm pretty much free to do as I please. I've wandered the campus both alone, with friends, and Dylan so I'll include pictures down there haha.

Hmm so what are my thoughts? I hate my dorm location, the southwest side of Berkeley is town and all it's food and such and where do I live? the northwest corner on top of 8 blocks of steep hill -__- It's such a pain to go all the way up here. I guess the campus is alright, the town is inconvenient though because everything closes at like 8-9pm, maybe I'm use to SF where things are either open 24/7 or until 2am. The dining hall food is HORRID. Omg, if I go here, I will never waste my money on it, luckily my program is paying for a prepaid meal card, but still ):

My roommate is from China and also has a twin in another suite. I've been helping them with everything from English translations to navigating the campus. I feel like I have two kids, I'm so pooped ><

As for living conditions, what can I say? It's a dorm. I live in a suite with a living room, 2 showers, 2 toilets, 4 sinks, and 4 bedrooms on the fifth floor. (gosh those stairs...) Now on to the pictures! Enjoy the pics and such and look out for my second post tonight, I've got to head to class now (:
