The three loyal readers of this humble blog (!) might remember a post from last fall when I talked about the view out my kitchen window. My much dreaded return to dorm life occurred this afternoon when Jeff loaded me, my school stuff, a whole lot of shoes and groceries for the next week into our trusty Echo and headed down the Malahat Highway. It was a tough day and I had a few melt downs along the way. After orientation this evening, I came back to my room and looked out my window (not my kitchen window but my ONLY window!) and replaced the nervous butterflies with a sense of amazement of how lucky I am to be here.Yup- that’s a REAL castle and it’s where I had my dinner tonight. And right behind it- that’s the ocean. I now live ocean front beside a castle. This is real estate I NEVER have a hope of repeating for myself! I’m thinking this three weeks is going to be OK… and that’s even before the learning starts.
