Good evening (depending on when you’re reading this), everyone! I’m in a dorm at Indiana University. I’m 39, and I’m fulfilling a childhood dream of going to, staying on, and being in Bloomington.
I’m here for a teacher workshop. The details of such may not interest you, so I’ll keep that stuff to myself for now. If time allows, I’ll blog about the actual conference separately after we get started tomorrow.
For now, I just want to write a few words about getting here. The dorm where I’ll call home for the next four nights is about 10 x 12 with a shared bathroom with the neighboring dorm. I’ve always pictured dorms to have bunk beds (because all of the ones I’ve been to had exactly that number), but this is a single. It’s conceivable that these may be utilized by sophomores or upperclassmen, but I have no way of knowing for sure. There weren’t any hangers provided (like one would find in a hotel closet). All of the furniture is natural wood–quite sturdy too. It makes me speculate how many IU students have used this desk, that bookcase, and the wobbly dresser over the years.
Is this too boring? I think so too. Well, I’ll wrap this up and potentially get something more intriguing along later.
