Life in a college dorm

I made it to Missoula by 6 pm and had to drive through about an hour of rain but no snow so that was great. After unloading and finding a place to keep my car I met all of Sarah's friends and we went to dinner. It was interesting to see her interact with all her buds and how the acted with her. I was also surprised to see her room. It was clean. Now that she is in a room by herself she has lots more room and I think that the room is indicative of who she is. It looks like the trip is going to be full of eye openers for me. My baby is all grown up now.

Needless to say I am on Sarahs computer and I can't upload any pics, her computer doesn't have my camera's software on it and I forgot to bring my jump drive. She is in class so I don't know where hers is. Maybe tomorrow then.

It snowed last night so everything is all pretty and white. Sometime today I will head over to the UM bookstore's Art department and then it won't be pretty. They have such cool stuff....and a lot of it is less expensive than I can find. So its the best of both worlds. Maybe I should go without mny waller, ah no that won't be any fun at all.

I had one of those nights last night where you wake up every 2 hours, new bed new place, new noises and comings and goings all night. Ahh the college life.

I have this new music by Jennifer Berezan called She Carries me. There is a song called "She who hears the cries of the world" and I am loving it. I just play the song over and over..its 17 minutes long. It is hauntingly beautiful. I never tire of it and I think it just relaxes me, puts me in a pleasant place like a good meditation.
