After living on campus for over 5 weeks, I've learned what not to do.
1. Don’t worry about the
bathrooms or dorms. Bathrooms = quite smashing I would say. Dorms = simply
delightful (at least in my case).
Those are all very bad
ideas and the results are not swell. I would know. Let’s just say after
assassinating my immune system I got sick…REAL sick. The bad news is getting sick
stinks...a lot, and it’s seriously annoying. The good news: Centre is AMAZING
at taking care of us sick-listers. And roommates and
friends are even better.
Long story short, a few
weeks at Centre feels like a few months in another world. The world is
stressful, busy, eye-opening, adventurous, and almost overwhelming...but it’s fun.
And once you step outside of it, you may feel the need to throw yourself back into it. Very quickly in my case...but throwing
things may not be such a good idea...especially in my case. Oh yeah, so here’s two more rules:
5. Don’t stress. Find your “Centre” and relax...get it? “Centre?” Ha! That was a good one...
