University dormitory

My daughter just moved into her dormitory. The room is symmetric, about 10 feet by 10 feet, to be shared by 2 students. The door faces the window squarely. Each student occupies one side of the room, with one desk, one bed and one closet. There is no air-conditioning, hence it can get quite hot in 30+ degree weather in summer, with the door closed. However, the window looks out onto a nice view of trees with squirrels.

The campus is huge. With 40,000+ students, it is a small city by itself. It is quite appealing, with lots of grand old buildings, majestic trees, famous alumni and faculty. A good place for my girl to study.

After two days of registering, getting the university ID, opening bank accounts, moving in to the dormitory, buying bed sheets, etc., we have to leave. Five of us went to the campus, and only four of us left, leaving my eldest daughter behind. My daughter seems to be taking everything in stride. I am not sure I am.
