Yesterday: I took a look into the ice rink: Check out this picture of past Hockey Classic Champions. Recognize 2005's winner???
Today (Sunday) I made sure that I could make my longest walk from class to class, in under 15 minutes.
Success! I made it in 10.
At Campus Kickoff, I got some information about the bike club where I can go build my own bike (tall bikes, funny shapes, lots of welding etc.). That will also come in handy for traversing the farther distances. My idea is to build a bike with two front wheels, and see if that works better in the snow.
I also got information about the debate team and campus radio.
While in The Commons I saw an add on one of the message boards: The local swim club, The Northern Lights, is looking for a tues/thurs coach. I called and left a message. I really hope I get that job, it would be quite ideal.
Today, I also took the bus to Fred Meyer. I picked up some toilet paper, shaving cream and batteries.
Here's a picture of the BP building. It's big, but it's not downtown.
On my way back a group of guys were barbecuing in the parking lot and invited me over. Free food, a little pick up football...it was a good time. I haven't really made any friends yet, but at least I'm meeting some people.
Two of my room mates have arrived, but the third is a no show. I'm not getting my hopes up, but an RA said there was a possibility I could end up having the room to myself. Can you say, "beds pushed together". :)
