Okay, so just yesterday, er, two days ago, I arrived in Detroit, Michigan, and just yesterday I moved into my dorm room/studio apartment and met my roommates for the first time. So if any of you have been wondering why I haven't been on that much for a long while now, it's because of the move. I am still getting adjusted, I'm actually staying in a hotel room with my mom for tonight because I need to get applied for food assistance and hopefully get a smartphone (for the first time ever!!!) so I can keep connected with my friends better and have a camera so I can take reference photos.
Driving through Detroit was so confusing, we got lost constantly, there's so many one way roads and to turn around you have to take another street and the U-turns are just so confusing.
What takes an average Detrioter 20 min to get somewhere, it took us 1hr, that's how confusing as it is to us.
I'm not sure if I would say I'm excited, if anything I'm completely terrified. I feel like I'm completely alone. My roommates were completely silent and absorbed into their smartphones the entire time, even when I tried to initiate conversation they stayed quiet. But I'll try not to judge, it is only the first day. And talking to the residents of Detroit, I heard the campus area I'm on is the safest place in Downtown Detroit, we have our own police force. The only problem is that once you're off campus, you have to watch your back. I've been freaking out all day today, and yesterday, I am not used to the city life at all, and it's just too much for me to absorb. I really need a close friend with me right now to help support me.
