Roommates and such!

Alright!!! I got an email from JTS giving me my residence hall number, new mailing address, email for the school, AND three new roommates! Two of the girls are Jewish but do not strictly follow kashrut laws for cooking and such, and the other girl isn't Jewish, so we don't need to worry too much about keeping a kosher kitchen. Unless we have friends come over who DO follow kashrut...and then the one girl suggested we just go to the nearest michvah and have our dishes cleansed! haha.

They sound really great: all three have some kind of degree in history and two have degrees in Anthropology, so it sounds like we all have thoroughly similar interests of study. We've already emailed each other a million times to figure out who's bringing what and it's all pretty much entirely figured out. Sweet! Also, I won't be the oldest. One of the girls graduated in 2007, the other two just graduated this year. Weird, I'll be with students who would have been in my brother's class! haha. They all sound really nice and we all have similar extracurriculars and life styles, it sounds. Good job, JTS Res Life! I am getting SO excited about move-in day (which has apparently changed again to Sunday, August 29th). I'd really like to know which day I'm actually supposed to be there because arriving earlier means I have to wait in a hotel because they don't let people in early. :/ The calendar on the website says August 31st for grad students...

Oh wells. We'll see. Today is Eric's grad party and I don't get to help set up beforehand because I have to work 8-4! boo. And it's been pouring rain ever since I got up. Great. Well, we'll see how this goes!
