the BEST first day ever

Senior year is already off to a great start! I knew it would be good, but who knew it would be THIS good? Here is a breakdown of my day.

I woke up around 10am (after briefly waking up at 7:45 to send KJ off to her first day at her new internship).  I hopped in the shower around 11 and got ready to go on campus by noon! I met up with a neighbor from home, Jeannie, who is a freshman now at Tech. We ate at Hokie Grill and it was awesome getting to hear about her first experiences at VT.

From there, I went to Pamplin to meet my new adviser! She and I went over my class schedule and got to know each other a little bit. I am definitely on the right track to graduate in May, don't worry Mom and Dad!

My first and only class on Mondays is at 2:30pm, so I had a little time after my adviser meeting before my class started. So I went outside and sat on the Drillfield. It was the perfect day in Blacksburg today! Then I went to my International Marketing class, which only lasted about 30 minutes since all we did was go over the syllabus. That's my kind of first day!

So it was 3:15pm when I first entered Virginia Tech's newest dining hall, Turner Place. I walked in and it felt like I was in Disney World! I met up with Alli at the Jamba Juice line, and then met my little for dinner. We decided to try the new hibachi grill, Origami, since it opened at 4 and we were right on time!

We were the second table ever to be served at Origami! What an amazing experience!! We had an awesome chef who definitely made us laugh AND cooked the best vegetables, fried rice, and chicken I could have ever dreamed of. And we got to meet 8 new friends sitting around the hibachi grill. My stomach is smiling just thinking about it! I'm so glad little and I took advantage of Turner Place this afternoon. I don't know the next time we won't need to make a reservation or stand in line for 45+ minutes at Origami.

Since dinner, I have just been relaxing at the Alpha Phi house. We have our first House Girl meeting in an hour followed by our first Alpha Phi Exec meeting of the semester. I can only hope the rest of my week is equally as great as today has been. Here's to senior year!
