Chi-town representin'

I0ˆ9m back in Chicago. For the next week, I0ˆ9ll be cleaning up and settling in to the apartment, hanging out with friends and otherwise lying around.

There was a bit of a fiasco with shipping stuff out to the apartment. Since my name wasn0ˆ9t on the building directory, all the packages sent to me weren0ˆ9t delivered. This includes my bed sheets and our wireless router. So, I have to sleep in my sleeping bag for the next few days, and what0ˆ9s worse, we don0ˆ9t have internet access in the apartment. (I0ˆ9m at the computer lab.)

Saturday, I worked at the NSIT O-Fest. It was a carnival for new students and their families to get acquainted with the technology services on campus. There was a lot of free food and free NSIT-branded items, such as a messenger bag and a towel. Yes, I too was surprised to receive a NSIT towel. For those who may be thinking, 0ˆ6there0ˆ9s no such thing as a free towel0ˆ7, I think funding for the O-Fest comes from the $250 orientation fee charged to first-year students. Or maybe it comes from the huge NSIT budget. I don0ˆ9t know, but I think first-years are paying for my towel and messenger bag.

Thank you first-years.
