In a mere two weeks I know every inch of the school. I am so accustomed to the campus that, in one case, I found myself walking automatically to my dorm. Every short cut is found and utilized, and even though I am walking across campus several times a day, I am unfazed by the distance.
I have not been prepared for the weather, which mimics the Bay Area’s tendency for erratic weather. For instance, this morning it was sunny and slightly humid, but within a few hours the clouds came and by mid afternoon it was raining. I came outside to escape the humidity, I turned a few pages and I was already shielding my book from water droplets and retreating to the humid dorm. I am also baffled by the humidity while it rains; I am accustomed to cold weather while it rains, so seeing the rain I grab a jacket, which becomes extra baggage later on. The weather balances itself out in the end, and I enjoy it by sitting in the grass.
I have only four days of my class left and less than a week until I will leave Brown. Although I wish I could have had more time in class, I will enjoy my day off tomorrow and will seek out the festivals of Providence. I anticipate the fireworks the most, since the Waterfire performance was so elaborate.
