I'm going soon. I'm looking forward to receiving my Mcgonagall hat there, too. It'll be my official reading hat.

My packing this year was so different. Last year I didn't pack enough, this time I undoubtedly packed too much. I'm just so used to packing with the, "Oh, I'll be spending a lot of time by myself" mentality. I totally forget that at Rowe I'm all in for community.

But it was fun anyway. I packed clothes and books and my flutes (one metal, one wooden) as well as my laptop purely for writing (I type faster than I write, so though I do both typing creates quicker stories). Other stuff. Fun stuff. CDs... I don't know.

I guess I felt that when last time I felt as though I had brought so little of my home with me, this time I would need more. But now I'm remembering that 'home is where the heart is' feeling. I remember that it doesn't matter how much stuff I bring, as long as my heart is in it.

Still, I've become a clothes person. With the removal of sports from my life I've noticed quite a procession into the world of clothing. Not fashion, per say, but definitely style. I have my own style (but it doesn't follow fashion, usually). So often I have a lot of clothes. Somehow, they've come to mean a lot to me.

I packed up. My room is still messy and full. It makes me giggle. I wasn't supposed to pack the trunk entirely, I was supposed to 'do it in chunks' so we could move the chunks down the stairs to put back into the trunk. I didn't know how I was going to do that. I have quite a few 'chunks' but the majority of clothing is to the bottom left. So instead, I just brought it down the stairs and out into the living room myself. It isn't too horrible.

I'm tired. I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm missing people already--when I come home, my work begins in entirety. It's as though it goes Rowe-->school, even though in reality there's a good 16 days in-between.

I would ADORE getting letters. I think I'm going to make a separate post for that. One that's friends only.
