Here We Go

It was 7 AM when my alarm woke me up on Saturday, March 31, 2012. YES!, you read right, it was Saturday! Now you must all think I'm absolute crazy for getting up at 7 AM on a Saturday, but I can see why. The weekend was meant for resting, so by getting up so early I was pretty much defying the laws of nature. Now don't think I'm a criminal who breaks the law every weekend. I assure you I wake up after 10 on Saturdays, but this Saturday was a special occasion.

With the help of Don's maps I arrived at Hercules High School at around 8:20 AM, a good 40 minutes early. The mandatory ILC tutorial didn't start until 9 AM, but it has been made quite clear that timing is very important. By 9 everybody was there, and we were ready to start.

Don covered many areas. He talked to us about blogging, laundry, photography, thieves, and numerous other things that we were required to know. He allowed us two breaks in between his lectures.

During our break we were actually supposed to get up, and try to make new friends. Um, yeah I did not do that. I sat in my chair talking to my very close friend, Tayler Ward, whom I already knew from school. MAYBE we'll actually get up and socialize at the following event, but I wouldn't count on it.

Besides having to get up ridiculously early on a Saturday, and there being no snacks, I did enjoy the tutorial. It answered any questions I had regarding my trip to Penn. I'm really excited, and I can't wait for my trip to the east side!
