I don’t know if it is jet lag or just me worrying and thinking too much but, once again, I find myself unable to sleep at 6:33am. This week has been so odd so far. Having been through Orientation once, I am not quite so enthusiastic the second time around. I am just ready for classes to start. I love the town and the view, but every interaction I have seems so superficial. At Penn I never talk to most of the people who I hung out with during NSO, and I wonder how many of the people I am meeting I am going to spend time with. My guess is not many. As always, I miss my family and wish that it was easier to talk to them. I know I have only been here for a few days, but a common theme in my head has been “it is only for 4 months” which isn’t great. I don’t really know what it is, but I just kind of feel like I don’t belong. Maybe once academics start I will feel differently but I am not really into this going out and getting drunk every night thing and most of the time I end up in my room watching shows or browsing the internet. I guess that I have never really been good at change and, while I think it will be sad to leave the town, I am not sure I will miss the school culture. Then again, I have only been here for a few days and I still have 4 months.
