Second day. Internetâ€™s still not working. It better be working by tomorrow.
Last night I went out to dinner with some people from the floor. Had an $18 Caesar salad. I definitely canâ€™t afford to eat in many restaurants.
Slept a lotâ€¦ like 14 hours. But it was kinda uncomfortable. The room was really hot and the only bedding the dorm supplied was a fitted sheet and a semi-thick blanket. It would have been nice to have a lighter sheet. But thatâ€™s NYU for you.
Went to class orientation. The walk to class is longer than last year; Iâ€™d say it takes about 25 minutes to a half hour. For the first day of class Iâ€™ll probably give myself 45 minutes to stay on the safe side.
The walk itself is pretty simple--a majority of the walk is down one road, Clerkenwell Road.
Went to the British Museum after class orientation. Itâ€™s about 5 minutes away from the class building. Saw the Rosetta Stone, Greek/Roman, and North American art. Itâ€™s so convenient and free so Iâ€™ll probably go back a couple times on my own.
Then I went to the grocery store and got a little more food and the Sunday Times. Read that for a while. It was ÂŁ2.00 but it was definitely worth it--thereâ€™s tons of stuff to read.
The weather today was miserable--and will probably be like this a majority of my stay. Chilly, but not freezing, and grey/raining. Itâ€™s not the ideal walking around weather, but hopefully itâ€™ll clear up soon.
Going to read more of the Sunday Timesâ€¦ later.
