Day two of MA orientation. What the hell have I gotten myself into?
Today: up, tea and breakfast, mess around online, shower, head to housewares store for some necessities if they’re affordable, lunch of some kind, head to school, meeting with program co-ordinator (I’m not smart enough to talk to him yet), get picture taken, another four hour orientation session, become completely overwhelmed, try not to cry on bus ride home, dinner and Orphan Black, maybe a game of gloom, prepare for international student orientation tomorrow, bed. At least the memory foam pad arrived so I can actually sleep.
i guess the real question is how can you not like tesla
he thought women would eventually rule the world because we’re the dominant sex
he liked pigeons
he was a vegetarian
he was a babe
he was shy
he hated edison
Yup, as long as you’re ok with that time he went bonkers and tried to build a death ray.
Are you serious the death ray was the best part

Just spent the day in the Cotswolds. Currently trying to devise a way to buy a cottage and live here forever. Surely they’ll just give me one if I write a nice letter.
Bon Voyage BBQ today! Spend all day preparing for BBQ. Cook, clean, and arrange. Quick sewing project (shorten new pants). Begin repacking if there’s time. Have an excellent time with friends and start to say goodbye for now. Try not to cry too much.
